I recently got my hands on a 1986 KDX200 (FREE!) that I'm going to fix up and sell to a friend for the price of parts. The bike is is surprisingly good condition for the price (again, FREE!), It needed the cylinder re plated (Currently at Millennium Technologies as I write this). Here is the bike as it was when we got it: It also came with a spare front fender, gas tank, swingarm assembly, rear wheel assembly, some aftermarket silencer, and some tires. And a NIB Weisco piston (Off with Millennium, too). Here's some close ups: Here's the KIPS before and after some TLC with degreaser and scotch brite: While we waited for the cylinder to come back I decided it would be wise to tear into the rear suspension and check/grease all the bearings. This was a good idea, one side on both the swingarm and linkage had the bearings rusted and siezed and all of the bearings were caked with hard grease and dirt. Not surprising... The shock also needs some work. It feels like pulling chunky soup through it and I'm pretty sure it's about out of oil. I've never done a shock rebuild before. Looks like I'll need a rear shock seal kit http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/productDetail.do?navType=type&vehicleId=1340&navTitle=Suspension&webTypeId=129&webCatId=13&prodFamilyId=19111 How much oil will it take? Any recommendations on what kind? No fancy racing stuff needed. Will I need anything else? Some of the shoulder bolts in the linkage assembly look like they've been replaced with standard bolts:banghead:... I haven't decided if I'll order new ones, or machine off the threads in the contact area and make a bushing... Either way, they aren't staying like that! Here's a pic of the suspension components all cleaned up (missing some): I still need to polish up the linkage sleeve and fix some damage to the linkage itself. Once the suspension is done I'll probably move onto fixing up the exhaust. I'll probably end up stripping ad re-painting the whole engine, apparently, the cylinder will be naked when it comes back from Millennium. It could use it anyway. So far I'm in: $190 for the cylinder. $24 for a new front inner tube. $50 ish for a manual and engine seal kit $5 for some new grease zerks for the linkage assy. And I'll be ordering $40 ish for new bearings for the swingarm and linkage $34 for the shock seal kit $? for some new shock oil $ 25 ish for new linkage bolts For a total of around $370 so far. It will probably also need a new pair of grips and other stuff and we work into it more. I'm happy!
