    That is my 200. The DRZ is in the photo behind it. It-and the wheels-have since been sold.
    As I say, needed some brackets and some customization. I never ran it that way. I just put it together because someone claimed DRZ wheels "bolt right up" to KTMs. It's close; the axle sizes match.
    As I recall the front needed spacers cut and-of course-a brake relocation bracket.
    Rear was bolt-in, perfect.
    I think. That was a few years ago and just because I was curious and felt like I had time on my hands.

    Never ran it.

    Maybe I'll find a set of wheels again, do it up and give Kurlon a run for his money @ boxshop.

    Damage/progress report.

    Timing chain didn't just skip, it slapped the living heck out of the case and chewed the guides up.





    New/replacement on top, old on bottom:



    Chain was completely gone, links seized up and dramatically stretched.



    New on top:



    Chewed quite a bit of material off the case, probably nothing structurally significant but deposited a lot of aluminum dust into the bottom end. On the bright side, it's aluminum and the chain was flinging it down into the case (not into the head). On the not-so-bright side, well, everything else about it.

    Thank goodness for oil filters.



    The cam was slapping around enough to jam the locating C ring into the cam race and take a nice bite.



    Cam gear was in rough shape too.



    All in all: cam, rockers, cam gear & valve cover are being swapped with spares.

    New (OEM) chain installed:



    New (old) cam and gear cleaned up:



    Head & valves cleaned up & inspected:



    Bottom end is buttoned up again w/ new gasket & oil filter. I'm doing one helicoil in the head I regretted ignoring last year, then final cleanup and it all goes back together. Will be flushing the heck out of it and replacing the oil filter very soon after. Then we shall see.

    No washer - just a lot elbow grease, chemicals, and scrubbing! Not my favorite part of the process but it's gotta be done...
