Any one "Know" the seat height for the 1983 XR 200? None of my normal spec links have it listed.

if I'm not mistaken, that's the last year of the RFVC XR200s, and they're relatively tall compared to the latter versions. More along the lines of an XR250.

You could buy the information in sales brochure...$$

Or guestimate it from various places on the net:

The 1984xr200 had a seat height of 860mm from:

(General discussion of suspensions and reference to 92 and later having 1.5" lower seat height...) :

Perhaps just to help here the specifics are the earlier XR200R B,C,D versions (I'm not sure of the earlier twin shock A version) had a seat height (fully extended suspension) of 890mm, the later dirt only models sold from mid 90's up until the CRF230 came out had a seat height of 850mm.

I guess with adjustment you'd knock the later models down close to 800mm which is reasonably low for a trail bike.

Thanks, I had thought 33.5 to 34.
I've found an extremely clean one, thinking about a different bike for Amy...shes keeping ahead of the 4-wheelers now :nod:
