Kid got BIG - now what ? Rebuild or sell it

Recommended Posts

Have a 2001 KDX200R with techcare suspension set up for a 5'8 rider, 180 pound rider. Worked great for a year or so but but my football playing son keeps growing. He has now grown up to be 6'1" and 240 pounds (he's 15) and maybe still growing. Obviously, the bike just isn't working for him, We only trail ride and my question is do I sell it and buy another or rebuild it.....beef up suspension and raise ride heighth ? If so, suggestions on what to do would be appreciated. I can do a lot of minor but not all repairs on my bikes. I sent an email to techcare but no replies.....

springs and more compression and rebound damping are needed IMO
