power increasing mods on my KX100 for MX

hey i have a kx100 and im wondering what mods i could do myself that dont require a whole lot of special equipment (boring, stroking, porting). I am 5' 6" and 120 i've almost outgrown it but before i get a new bike i would like some extra power. im mostly gonna be ridin mx and some trails.

thanks charlie

ps please dont tell me i should get a 125 cause i am this is just for right now

aftermarket header is always sweet. aftermarket pipes. or a Vforce3 reed valve. o have them all on my 250 and its awsome power. itll catwalk in 5th easy

I put a pipe and reeds on my '08 kx100,really made a difference.:ride::thumbsup:

cool i think i will get v-force3 reeds and maybe a pipe

thanks alot!! :ride::thumbsup:

If you're willing to get into the motor for more power, Stroke it and keep stock bore (103cc).

Best parts for your build: +2mm stroker crank, Phathead racing cylinder head machined for added stroke, pipe/silencer combo of your choice (I suggest FMF or Bills), V Force reeds, 428 chain/sprocket upgrade. Jet accordingly, have fun.

Your too big. My kid is smaller then you and he started riding my 250f in april. He still rides his kx100 in the supermini class but he looks big on it.

cool i think i will get v-force3 reeds and maybe a pipe

thanks alot!! :ride::thumbsup:

you can change your sprocket sizes for more tourque or high speed to eh? if you want more tourque put bigger sprockets. you want more top speed use smaller.

what brand aftermarket header did you get and how much would it cost to have someone stroke my bike? thanks again for the help

The pipe is up to you. We used a Bills and was happy. As for the motor work, anyone you trust can do it. All it requires is the changing of the crank and the head work can be easily be done by Bob at bobscycleslem.com. His cost is about $45 or so. Ours was the first one he'd done and he still uses the same dimensions. Those will net you a little bit higher compression but still being able to use pump 93 gas.

Going stroker is a nice boost of power while retaining stock bore. This means no modification to bore, powervalve, special head gaskets, pistons, etc.

EDIT: BTW, hope you're planning on racing Supermini, Schoolboy 1 or lites. Unless your local track allows you in a mini class.

Bob's website doesn't work. How to we contact him?

      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.
