KDX OEM Pipe

Recommended Posts

lol @ boat anchor. Quite true!

As far as I know though, the 220/200 use the same pipe stock.

:banana: I don't know what I was thinking, of course they are the same pipe!

Fastback, the OEM pipes are the same. The "boat anchor" analogy still applies, though...

Agreed. They are awfully good at soaking up sound though, with that double wall design. If you're looking for a replacement pipe, definitely look into aftermarket.

The bike came with a FMF pipe but I want to put a stocker on first until the boy gets use to the bike. I was told the FMF has a definite hit to it. At this point I don't need performance. I like the idea of it quiet.

Gotcha.

If the bike has too much of a hit, it's likely got a jetting problem. The kdx power band should be wide and smooth. Just something to think about.

Or a power valve problem.

I wouldn't worry about that if he is big enough to ride it he will learn to deal with it ...if your worried about him getting scared then he is probably not going to like riding period....if thats the kind of kid he is

There is no noticeable sound volume difference between the FMF and the OEM "pipe".

However, the OEM silencer is a tad quieter than the various aftermarket silencers. Based on seat of the pants for me, the stock silencer did not make much difference in power compared to aftermarket. The "pipe" change from OEM to aftermarket, however, made a big difference in power delivery. The stock silencer is very heavy though.

He is a fairly aggressive rider. That's what concerns me ;-). I have not doubt he will be able to handle the bike. I was just a little concerned about "hit"

We ride mostly woods and tight stuff going over logs, roots ect. I want hime to have more low end power than a mid to high range hit.

so is this bike a 220, or a 200, and which FMF pipe is installed on it?

      I have a problem with my stage 2 exhaust cam on my rmz whenever I kick it over the exhaust cam likes to stop at the lift unless I put it at tdc or kick it really slow it runs fine when it starts and I have played around with the shims right now all the valves are shimed and I have checked the timing everything’s to spec it just gets stuck at the exhuast I’m pretty sure it’s something to do with too much compression I probally will end upbuying stock cams but wanted to see if anyone knows how to fix this first

      I recently acquired a 1990 KDX200. The bike runs reasonably well for it's age. The first ride over 30 min the gearbox oil started overflowing into the airbox (overflow hose is routed to airbox). The oil that overflowed and the oil in the gearbox are an odd shade of dark forest green. The oil appeared to be overfilled slightly which explains the overflow. What I don't understand is the weird dark blueish greenish gray color of the oil.  I believe the PO used motul 10w40 ester gearbox oil because he gave me a half used gallon. I use Motul 710 2t oil which is blue, and run green coolant in the radiator. I drained the gearbox oil and there was a nice little clump of dark gray metalic paste on the magnetic drain plug, which should explain the gray hue. What I do not understand is the greenish blue hue. Anyone know what in the heck is going on with this old horse?
      The pic shows a sample of my drained oil. When held up to the light it turns more of a green color. Oil still feels slick as can be.

      will a clutch basket from a 98kx250 fit a 96kx250? How about the carb also?

      I have a new cylinder that i bought to rebuild my 1993 kawasaki kx250 with, because the old cylinder was destroyed. The guy said the cylinder is overbored a little but never gave us numbers. The new one i bought came with a piston thats been used and i would like to replace. I believe the piston that came with the cylinder is the correct size, but it very well could be off and i have no way of knowing. So how do i properly measure the cylinder bore, and how do i use this measurement to find what size piston I need to get?
       
      thanks,
