The 200x motor is a manual clutch 5 speed whereas the 185/200s motors were auto 4 speeds. I think the 200s engine put out 12hp stock and the x engine was around 15-17.

You want to put the 200x engine back in it. Its way better power/gearing.

Go here these guys can help you. They helped me with my 185s and I met up with alot of them at little sahara and rode the dunes with them

As far as the numbers I would call the local Honda dealer or get online and find a number for them. your H.P. may be somewhere around 12-15. Boring it won't give you that much morebut add in a high compression piston, exhaust, cam, carb jetting, and a good air filter and you should get it to move around pretty good.

- 1st digit : represents the country in which it was made. 1 or 4 is for the U.S., 2 is for Canada, J is for Japan, K is for Korea etc.

- 2nd digit : represents the manufacturer. H is for Honda, K is for Kawasaki etc.

- 3rd digit : this position represents the vehicle type or manufacturing division which can vary by make of vehicle.

- 4th to 8th digits : these positions represent vehicle attributes such as body style and engine type (not to be confused with an engine code, every vehicle has one of those mounted on the engine).
Honda ATV owners visit the Honda ATV Model Codes list for model information.

- 9th digit : this is called a “check digit” and it exists for security reasons. This letter or number is derived mathematically depending on the previous 8 digits. It’s used to confirm that a VIN isn’t being fabricated.

- 10th digit : The vehicle year.



- 11th digit : Assembly plant

- 12th to 17th digits : These numbers increase by one for each unit that rolls off the assembly line, the last four are always digits.
