View Full Version : Not sure which engine to use in my new 200x

I just picked up a 84 200x with a bum motor. Buddy said the motor locked up on a hot day. Its out of the bike now
Should I rebuild it or try and piece together a 200m motor from my 2 200m parts motors.
Does anyone have a good used 200x or a 200es chain motor.
How much is a 200x motor worth.

You might as well take the 200x motor apart and see whats stuck. It might be in the top end. Then again the rod might have fused to the crank shaft. It is hard to tell until you get in there and look. I have an extra 200x motor, but I dont know its condition internally. If I were going to buy a used motor and was not planning on rebuilding it, I would make darn sure I could ride it or at least hear it run.
