    '83-85 and '86 200x bottom end differences?

    I am getting ready to reassemble the bottom end of my '84 200x. How similar are the cases and components to the '86 and later 200x?

    Thanks.

    Thanks. I have a buddy with a service manual for the 86-87 he'd give me so was wondering if it was close enough to use this manual for the rebuild reference or if it was completely redesigned.

    Good man.... do it right the first time. It's something u dont want to do twice, or three times. Take your time there is actually folks here that'll help u (just may have to be patient at times) and learn to ignore some of "entertainment" at times

    I've built other things but spend most of my time (and most of my money) on old 2 strokes. This ATC is going to be interesting, though. I'm used to building things that have far more available NOS and aftermarket parts. Parts for these trikes are like a family of unicorns. Haha.

    The 83-85 200x is closely related to the XR200 engine. Many internal parts are the same, there are some differences but bearings, seals, some gears, rod, piston and other parts are the same.
