Check the CDI. mine filled with water on a wet ride. It resulted in very intermittant running. Also drain the carb. There should be a screw at the bottom of the float bowl.

try honda cg 125 (1976to 1992)or honda xr 125 l (2002to 2007) manuals for the xy200gye engine.The frame is more tricky yamaha dt200 front sock and the list goes on.Personally i just finished upgrading my ( rather straing hobby)I am using the xr 125 valve train and an oil cooler though i don t thing that the grears will stant a chance.Also have changed it to an intake similar to xt 550 (1982)the factory exhaust is a match for this upgrade.I Have already done about 14000 km (the normal valve train needs timing almost every 1000miles,harse if you consinder you have to take down the intire engine to time the valves,also change your clutch plates with honda 200 trx plates, the normal tend to stick.

pc the carb hole is on the botom of the carb

I HAVE NO EXPERIENCE WITH HARELYS. ATVs ARE NOT MOTORCYCLES. DO NOT ASK ME ABOUT THEM. DON'T ASK UNLESS YOU HAVE LOOKED IN THE SHOP MANUAL FIRST - IT ONLY ROBS SOMEONE WITH A REAL QUESTION OF THE OPPORTUNITY. You can ask me electrical questions about 1975-85 HONDAS. You can ask me about driving sidecars in the winter, or sidecars in general. You can ask me general motorcycle repair questions, but my main experience is with Honda CX500, GL500, CX650, GL650, GL1000 and GL1100 models. I also know a bit about the Suzuki GS400 and 1980s Dneprs, but I haven't touched either in years. If you ask about a model I am not familiar with I will do my best to find your answer.


I have been operating and maintaining Honda motorcycles since 1991 and other types since 1985. I have access to several online usergroups that specialize in keeping these types of bikes roadworthy and am considered an expert in some areas, particularly electrical/wiring matters. I have been using sidecars for everyday winter transportation in Southern Ontario since 1987 except for 2 winters on a trike. I have learned how to make this a relatively comfortable activity and how to prepare the machine so that it survives the road salt.
