1997 kdx200 replacement jet needle

does anyone have a link to the most cost effective and best replacement jet needle for the Keihin PWK35 stock carb? any other suggestion? mine may not be worn or worn out but a 12 year jet needle might be close to needing replaced. It can't hurt. What kind of money can i expect to spend? Yep I am barely working so money has become an issue.

surely I will not have to go through kawasaki to replace it.

thanks in advance for any input.

How much is Kawi wanting for one?

I see in the TT store, jet needles are $21.24 (+ around $8.00 S&H). Most other online places I know of will be in this neighborhood too, +/- $2.00.

Kawi won't give a price online, but it's probably in this range too. OEM may be the best buy, close to the same price and no S&H.

yes sir olhillbilly.you are real close.I called kawasaki of rome and they can get me one for apporximately $20.00.NO SHIPPING. I forgot that I'll need a main jet as well since both wear together.DUH. I am assuming that is the same thing as the main jet.Am i correct?

It has been TOO long since i have ridden considering that I was riding about 100+ per week.and then some.Time to get back with it and i am straightening out some minor issues.

thanks for replying.

I forgot to add that I had read or thought that I had,about a specific needle other than stock that many on here are using with the stoc carb.

Thanks Luigic81

no prob

or get an aftermarket unit from acceleration kart racing; $5. Check the KDX-specific forums for needle recs.

Go to KDXRider.net and check it out. These guys breathe KDX knowledge and probably forgot more than most people will ever know. They talk about jetting constantly. :banghead:

I think I saw Motosport sells individual carb parts now.

      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.
