Looking to buy KDX 220

I am looking to buy a leftover 200 or 220. Hopefully, from a dealer that is not too far away. Any suggestions,



I found my KDX220 by researching various Kawi dealers web sites looking for closeouts/leftovers etc. It was a very time consuming process even finding them but this link below should help quicken the process. Click on link and scroll down to the lower right hand side to find dealers. You can change states as you move on. I would suggest going to each dealer site starting with the closest ones to you/Oregon first and simply fill out a request a quote that pops up on that link. Say stuff like, hey you have any leftover Kdx's hanging around and leave them your e-mail. Your really not going to save any money unless you find somebody with an older new/leftover KDX such as a 2003 or 2004. The reason I suggest doing this is because even though they might not have one in their store they might know where to get one. They say oh yeah we have one in house but in reality they have it shipped from some place else cheaply with other bikes/parts etc. Then they sell it to you for 3000-3500 bucks and still make a few bucks off it. It might be below dealer cost but they have to get rid of them before they are not worth anything.

I picked up my leftover 2004 KDX220 this way. I sent in a request asking if they had any leftover 2005 KDX220's and he sent me something back saying no but they had a 2004 crated up and in the warehouse. I highly suspect he had it shipped in :thumbsup: maybe not??

Obviously this wont work unless its close enough to drive and pick it up. For me shipping was not an option because of Cost.

I would sell my KDX 220 but I am in SoCal

Get the 200,its faster.{thats going to open a can of worms}

there is no can of worms to open,,,,the 200 is faster,,,they made the 220 for a little more low end :thumbsup:

i cant agree more, the 200 is most definately faster, of course if you put a 200 carb on a 220. hehehehe, thats what i did.

XRiowa, I will trade you my 99' KX125 for your 01' KDX220. I live in California. Look at her in my garage and let me know if your interested. :thumbsup:

How much of a difference does the 200 carb on the 220 make? I'm looking into it if its very noticable :thumbsup:

im at school right now, but i will let you know when i get home. :thumbsup:

The difference is very noticable.

well ive never used the kdx220 carb. when i got the bike it came with the 200 carb on it. This is what i can tell you. I though originally the bike had the stock carb, i didnt find out it was the 200 carb untill i took it on the road to just go as fast as i could. I really noticed a strong pull in the top end, i mean the bike had pep in 6th gear. I found this to be odd considering the 220 was not known for its top end. So i pulled the carb and measured it, sure enough it was the 200 carb. I have never had any difficulties with the low end, i think it has great low end.

As much as i cant tell you about the 220 carb i told you about the 200 carb, you can compare and see if the 200 carb is right for you. If you all have any other questions let me know. I suggest you go get one if you can get it cheap. If not have eric gorr or whoever it is bore and put a plate in your carb for $165. And if you really got money buy the airstryer carb.

Alright what is a airstyer carb?? Link please!!

And that KX125 would be nice but I dont think it would haul 6'1" 225 very well... But I will think real hard about it.. The wife needs a bike!!

xriowa, i cant comment too much on the carb because i dont have one, i do know a few who do have one though. Become a member at kdxrider.net and ask, i know someone will tell you about it and give you a link.

      Hi all,
      I have a 2004 Kawasaki kx250 that died suddenly on me the other day. all i can get it to do is backfire every once in awhile. Tested the resistance and everything of the magneto and stator with a multi-meter and all is good.  Coil is new oem Kawasaki the reeds are brand new vforce and the top end and carb have been completely rebuilt.  key on crank is intact and all the timing marks are lined up. I hooked a timing light to it and spun the motor over really fast and found that it is sparking way to late.  The service manual says that it is supposed to fire 14 degrees before TDC but it is sparking way after TDC.  Im thinking its a fried CDI box since its the only thing i wasnt able to check.  Any help would be appreciated

      Hi all,
      I have a 2004 kx 250 2 stroke and it wont start.  it only backfires.  I was out riding it one day and came up to a stop so the bike was just idling and it started to try and die so i revved it up a few times then let it die and now it wont start back up.  It only pops or backfires when you kick it.  Its getting good spark and i just put a brand new plug and coil in it. I took the reeds apart and they look like they're brand new.  It was running great before so i dont know what happened.  Im thinking it could be a fuel problem even tho the plug is a little wet if you take it out after a bunch of kicking.  Any help would be greatly appreciated

      Alright, found three bikes all located where i live in Texas. I know they're all very different, but if you could tell me what you think each bike is worth, and which one would be the best deal. Thanks.
      Notes: Both 2 strokes have new top ends. I think the front brake lever is broken on the kawasaki.
      KX250 2002 $800-$1000?

      YZ125 2000 $1250

      KTM 400SX 2002 $1200

      So I'm at a bit of a cross roads, I currently own a 06 rm250 and I love it. I also have a 02 kx250 which I'm selling with intent to buy a newer two stroke. I can't afford a newer ktm and the older ones aren't that great and kawasaki never impressed me. so I'm stuck between 06 yz250 and 05 cr250. I've heard the yz and rm after 06 are almost the same bike just the Suzuki handles better and the Yamaha has better suspension. So I'm not sure if I wanna buy carbon copy of my bike with slight differences. That's why I'm interested in a cr250 I heard the 02+ models RC valves are shit garbage but was mostly fixed in the 05-07 models. I ride at a track and at some bogs down the road from me. So from people who have owned both, what would you recommend. I know the cr is known for a hard hitting power band which I enjoy since im an aggressive rider. Should i just see which deal comes my way first.
