The saga continues.....I donít want to sell her. I LOVE how she smells when running.
The TS125 was upgraded with a PEI ignition from a 1981 TS125.......

Another viable engine is the 1981/82 PE175....I had an 82...It was like a trailbike version of an aircooled RM125...Then there's the Yamaha IT175..Kawasaki KDX200..Honda XR200/250 and CRF230

Besides the TS125 was manufactured up until 3 years ago I beleive...........

Then theres the TS185 with 175cc race kit................Lots and lots of perspectives....

I picked mine becaise the bike was given to me for free with bent up frame and forks also bent up front rim...

I think 2 strokes either addict you, or make you hate them. I LOVE them...sir.

Few things feel better than showing a COP a legal registration to a bike that he KNOWS can’t possibly be legal. That’s the hypnotic effect of the YSR chassis for me.

Re: New YSR owner

Well....I just found a website called Steahlyoffroad.com They make lots of lighting coils/stators for many 2 stroke dirt bike engines. I’m actually starting to consider a liquid cooled YZ 80 or YZ 125.

22hp (yz80) OR 35hp (YZ125) with lights and battery sounds VERY VERY VERY tempting. I just don’t know how bad the VIBES would be. I see a lot of people warning about that problem.

Maybe I should just stick to the Blaster option. No radiators, 20-25hp easy, no stator mods. It has a balance shaft, and plenty of parts available. Still a UNIQUE mod.

Any advice on that CAM2 ??

I’m at the point where I need to get off the bus and sell while I’m gonna break even or commit another $1000-1500 to get something that is totally INSANE and UNIQUE, but I will never be able to get my money back out of.

I like INSANE and UNIQUE.....if you know what I mean.

Killer way to capitalize.....like I stated the dt200 has the same style bottomend as the blaster...

In case you didn't know they also made an aircooled DT175 and DT250....another is the yz400....the yz400 is a beast that shares similar bottomends..my Blaster 200 was modded with a YZ400 cylinder and stroker crank.....It's so wickedly fast and goes out of co trol pretty easily I wrecked all of the bodypanels...lol


Not too long ago I even saw a yz490 powered YSR50 with a YZ80 rear disc brake mod ...I think on youtube

Re: New YSR owner

This is what I see in pictures that I think I will need to fabricate to make the Blaster front engine mount. Looks easy enough.

Thanks for the advice and the info. Yes....the little YSR is a beauty and I think she deserves a proper engine to make her GO as good as she looks sitting still. She is a gem.

Suzuki TS 125?? Very interesting option. WIKI actually shows them as being 13HP stock but thatís irrelevant. So, what kind of frame mods did you need to do to make that motor bolt-up?? Iím sure it requires some welding too. Would you do the TS125 motor again or would you go with a Blaster 200??

Lots of cheap aftermarket parts for the Blaster motor. Big bore 240cc kits with new cranks, cylinder, pistons and gaskets are all over EBAY. 25-30HP is easily done. Thatís good for 90+mph with a reliable 60-70mph cruise.

But, anyhow...The DT200 is a hard find and it would be extra work but not impossible to mount radiators. So I think Iím gonna pass on that as an option unless I find one super cheap.

I did finally see some pics of the front engine mount that needs to be fabricated for the DT200/Blaster 200 motor. It looks easy enough. I have a friend who has a cheap MIG welder who can tack the mount up for me. And like you said, have it professionally TIG welded in after that.

Good hearing from ya sir, and thanks.

What engine was that?? Lights? Street legal??

I spoke with Team Calamari yesterday, they recommended a 76-77 YZ80 motor. It will accept my YSR flywheel/stator and bolt right in to the existing frame mounts.

So - here I am, with these options:

1) Blaster motor - 200cc/20hp easily. Comes with lighting , 6 speeds, but requires some welding. Kinda expensive $400-900

2) 76-77 YZ80 motor - roughly 15-20 hp. Accepts my YSR stator for lighting. HARD TO FIND and price unknown $$

3) DT200 - Same issues as Blaster (requires welding mods) + radiator mounting. VERY HARD TO FIND that motor.

This bike is just too gorgeous to ignore. It begs for MORE power.
That thing is a beauty............

The DT200 is indeed pretty hard,,,,The guy who bought mine begged me to sell mine even though it was locked-up....He spent I beleive $1000.00 to fully rebuild it himself...

When you consider a new 50cc YSR was $4000.00 starting in 1987 I always say if the project doesnt meet the target of initial retail price of when it was manufactured brand new its a win-win all the way around...

The welding seems alot harder than it is,,,,making the mounts too....Some lack skills and try to make it seem laborious so somebody doesnt start the mod come onto their page and steal their thunder.....LOL

If you get some chromoly tubing and get it bent into arc bends you can mimic the design of their mounts quite easily and weld them no problem using a cheap chinese welder to tack weld them then bringing the frame to work to have it tigwelded .........

What my mom used to do to all my minibikes and briggs/techumseh powered Gocarts was get them tumbled then epoxy primed...one minibike even got fully chromed....

If that was my beauty Id want it to be as bad *** as it could be looks wise aswell as speedwise....

The engine I used was a 10-12hp stock 1979 TS125 engine with 6 speed transmission I modded close to 20hp....It is a streetlegal motorcycle so I used the whole harness too...

Itís going to melt this little motor down. I LOVE the COOLNESS of the little bike and since I have a bunch of extra parts - Iím going to sell the engine, the spare engine, and extra parts.

I see a Yamaha Blaster 200 motor is a very common swap. I plan on doing some more research to see what is involved. But starting out with 16-17 stock HP sound like a lot better platform rather than trying to squeak 10-12 HP out of a 5 HP motor. I want reliability, plus power.

Blaster motor is very common, and people like it for the swap since it has a lighting/charging system. Which would allow me to stay street legal and also give me a 80-90 mph top speed. That means 50-60mph cruise would be no problem.

What do ya think, sir??
Sorry for the late reply....Im leaning more towards the DT200 swap....Its more viable for a street capable YSR and keep delivering the goods as its watercooled plus has a lighting stator.......

Im sure youre gonna want to make it street legal and ride it to work......Id go with whats gonna give me longevity aswell....You dont want to suddenly lose compression going WOT 5 miles from home like Blasters are pretty famous for....LOL

My YSR with the 20hp 6 speed 125cc aircooled engine cruised at 55-60 and went 90.....Blasters are 22hp and the DT200 a lil more pushing out 33hp......

I had a DT200 years ago....I sold the engine to a guy from another forum to do the swap....4 years goes by and the project fizzled so he sold the engine for like half of what he paid for it.....

I swapped in a 500cc 2 stroke engine into the DT200 frame and turned it into a motard wheelie machine......LOL

Re: New YSR owner

Once the frame mods are done it takes a lil finesse through the top but the whole engine fits completely assembled..Just dont put the crankcase oil in until after its in...

The blaster 200 swap requires building a lower engine mount and drilling the rear swingarm bolt bigger plus removing the stress bar under the gastank that goes across......Another is removing the oil injection pump..

Theres another swap to do thats just as cool and a lil easier in a way....Thats the Yamaha DT200 swap...........

Its got the same lowerend as a blaster but the DT200 is watercooled and also has an electronic powervalve............

Alls needed to do for the swap on that is drill the swingarm bolt bigger and mount up radiators...........

I kinda like the approach aswell as vector of this thread....

Way to stick with the ship til you knew for sure it wasnt gonna stay afloat....

You gained valuable insight into the realm of the GT80 that can be passed along to others for sure...............

MrKitty click on pictures to view looks like you're going to have to take the top end apart to wedge it in there

Re: New YSR owner

Ok..Mr. Kitty

Can you find what kind of frame mods I need to do?? YES there are all kinds of web-pages that ďtalkĒ about doing the swap...I know. IM NOT STUPID. I typed in the same thing about a hundred times. I need pictures and dimensions. If you can use your VAST internet knowledge to find that out for me that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You sir

Re: New YSR owner

Any opinions?

Do you know anyone who has done the Blaster/YSR swap? Iím just curious what kind of frame mods need to be done. I can pay to have welding work done but I just want to know what Iím getting into. Itís really hard to find detailed info on this swap.

Thanks in advance.
