my KX intro

I have been in the Honda forums for a while now, and since I just got my kids a 2000 KX100 for $600, I figured I would introduce myself!

The bike overall is in great shape. The paint is rubbed off the frame from the boots (anyone got a link for the OEM paint color? I saw some engine enamel spray paint that was REAL close, not sure if it is usable for this bike, though), and a few other cosmetics things, but, this thing is cool, sepecially for $600.

Top end (piston, bearings, rod,) all new/rebuilt carb, new cylinder jug. I just ordered some new stuff to make it a bit nicer and safer for them to ride. Pretty much all it NEEDS is a set of sprockets and a chain. Tires are good for a few months. I did polish up the rims, and they look almost new. The kids want new plastic (I said NO!), but we settled for new graphics.

I don't remember much about 2 strokes (I'm a 4 stroke guy), the last one I had was in 2000 (Eric Gorr built RM125), and the last 2 stroke I had was back in the early 90s. 1989 KX125. It was PURPLE, with neon green spider webs. Yeah, the 90s....

I'll post up some pics later, I am sure I'll be in here a lot asking questions, figured I would tell you something about myself for future reference. I spend a lot of time deployed, so I will be here or THERE.

See you around the tracks! JL

Hope you enjoy it!

yuo'll love the kawi

PJ1 makes color matched rattle can frame paint. You'll want Kawasaki Green, NOT Flourescent Green.

^^^ hes right ^^^

PJ1, got it...guess I'll order me some...thanks for the tip!

Hopefully I get all the new parts in today so they can ride it. The kick starter boss was already shearing off, so when I kicked it the other day, my massively powerful leg (haha) finalized the boss, and the kick-starter went full aft, and stayed there....easy fix, just waiting...

      I am trying to find out if the water pumps for the KX250'S will interchange. Seems most parts from 96- 07 will. Can anybody help me out? My plan, put a Boyesen Supercooler for a "05" model on to my 99. Will this work? Any help is appreciated! Thanks

      So i know my way around a crab pretty well and i'm very familiar with them i just can't seem to get the kawi dialed in it seems to have this unging/erratic rev thing going on when i pull in the clutch and i slow down so i'm looking for the correct carb adjustment for the bike it didn't seem to do it when it was warm out but now that it's in the 30's forties it's doing it my elevation here in upstate ny is 295' it's been around upper 30's lower 40's but i'd like to tune it so it's ready for summer because i don't ride it much in the cold so i'd like to tune it so it would be best in 70-90 degree weather since that's pretty common around here So could someone please help me out I need to know what the fuel to air mixture is needle position and proper jetting thank you

      Okay guys, I have a 1997 kx250 frame and I wanna know(if even possible) if there are any 2 stroke engines besides the original that will Bolt onto the frame without any modifications.
