A 1983 XR200R does not have a replaceable oil filter. It has a cleanable screen. It is located on the left side of the crankcase behind a large nut. I think it is a 17mm. Remove cover and clean screen.

On the right hand side of your bike should be a 2" cover with three bolts holding it on. The bolts should take an 8mm wrench to remove, take the cover off and the oil filter is under that cover. You probably do not have a cleanable filter in there it is most likely a paper element filter but they are cheap to buy. When reinstalling the filter be sure to put it in the exact way it came out. It will fit in both ways but only one way is correct. there should be hole with a rubber grommett on it that should face the cover you took off. If reinstalled backwards oil flow to the top of the engine can't happen and the engine will need rebuilding shortly after.

Simple as that 1985 honda xr200r stator has oil should it have oil there is no spark i thought it was the cdi box but decided to check stator and was full of oil

There is always some oil in there, it shouldn't be full of oil. But there will be a small amount.
Although this isn't for your bike it gives trouble shooting options for a CDi system.

  • An adjustable socket wrench.

  • The proper amount of manufacturer-recommended engine oil.
  • A new, manufacturer-approved oil filter.
  • A funnel
2. Unscrew the oil filter caps 3. Remove the oil rain plug 4. Replace and remove the crush washer 5. Clean the oil drain plug 6. Remove the oil filter 7. remove and clean plastic mesh filter 8.

I have a Honda Civic 83 and did not pass the smog check. Should I repair it? I was told it might need to rebuild the engine. It is in good condition and runs nicely, but it is smoking. It has 44,000 miles...

hi with 44000 on clock i doubt it needs a re build drain and flush the oil and then change the oil filter this should make an improvment it sounds as if your system needs a good clean up
