just bought kdx, got a question already

Recommended Posts

I just bought a 2002 kdx200. The motor has real good throttle response rides nice. But when it sits and idle's theres like a loud clicking coming from the kips system "i think there anyway" when i rev it up the sound goes away untill it is sitting back idling. Ive always had 4 stroke bikes and engine noise was common. Im not gonna have time to tear it apart till this weekend. Just hoping to get a heads up on what could be wrong.

Hopefully its not the piston slapping around in there.

The kips alwasy rattles, but that beeing said you just bought a used bike it's time to pull the top end, check all your spec's and put a new pistion in it.

If it goes away with higher revs then it sounds like normal KIPS operation. Why one KDX KIPS rattle can be louder than another is due to how clean the KIPS valves are. The cleaner the noisier and vice versa.
