The 200SX doesn't really have a conventional oil filter like most models. It has a screen inside the engine and it just has a piece that bolts to the end of the centrifugal clutch that you have to unbolt and wipe off with a cloth. The crankcase cover has to be removed to clean both of these. Click on the link below and you can download the service manual for more details.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Make certain that you run a wet clutch compatible oil,or else the clutch will slip,and go out...You can adjust the clutch on it by loosening the clutch adjustment nut,gently turning the screw ccw inwards until it stops,then backing it outwards 1/4 of a turn,holding it with screwdriver while locking the lock nut back down...Do a short change on the oil(change it,run it for half an hour,or so,then drain it again while the oils still good n warm will help clean out the bottom end including the transmission,and clutch)...As to a lift,you can build,or buy shock spring spacers which when installed on the shock under the bottom of the spring will only lift the atv upwards the amount of down travel the shocks have...How much you can pick the front end up before the shocks are fully extended..Maybe 1".or 1.5" would be the max lift on the front if that...If you want a 4/110 bolt pattern up front,order a pair of adapters off feeBay for around 60 bux...
