    Impressions of the KDX200

    I bought a '99 new way back then. Ran the way you described until I sent the carb to RB Design. That made a huge difference in how it ran! Still was able to lug around but it opened the top end up a lot. I wish I could remember who I sent the suspension to because it worked great after. Raced it 2 years in mid-south hare scrambles before I drank the orange cool-aid!

    Moab recommendations?

    Sounds great so far. I see everyone talking about trailering to the trails. Is it really strict on motorcycles being street legal? If so how strict? I don't have a problem either way just curious.
  3. Just started planning a trip to Moab for the first week of October. Any suggestions, must ride trails? Looking for single track. How is the weather in early October?

    2014 EC200 pros/cons?

    If I would have brought more jets and more time while I was there I could have gotten it much closer. I rally don't know how much better it would have done tho. I do have a n3ch(I think that's correct) needle. It lost all low and midrange power, I had to keep it on the pipe to do anything. Taking off on any kind of up hill was like trying to start a race!

    2014 EC200 pros/cons?

    I have a 2013 xc200. Love it. It handles great, lots of power and good midrange power from a 200cc. It will scream when I want it too then ride easy with my son (he is riding a crf100 and learning) all day. Mine is all stock except for jetting and shortened silencer. Sea level riding though. Took it to Colorado earlier this summer and didn't get the jetting right, bike sucked then!

    Tire recommendations?

    I definitely like the more planted feel. I am not a rear steer type of rider. I am looking at getting a shinko cheater or a m5b evo. Leaning more for the latter for the winter and spring wet/mud conditions coming up. I haven't had a chance to try any of the new tires on the market today. I always used Michelin s12 in the early 2000's. Lots of miles on those and loved them for my area.

    Colorado plate questions?

    Sorry for the confusion silvfx . I was commenting back to snowmule about the getting plates for my bike. My son will not get to go on this trip. It will be over his abilities. I greatly appreciate all the information that has been given!

    Colorado plate questions?

    Thanks for the info. I will be getting some trail maps and will definitely check those out.

    Colorado plate questions?

    I would if it was worth it for me. The riding areas I have in my region are so far spread out it's not. Plus my 12 year old might get hassled by the cops on his crf100!

    High altitude jetting help

    You are correct on the main. I am away from home until this weekend When I get back I will double check the jets I have and also look at the gearing. It is stock as I have not changed it but I do not remember what it is. I have not had the squish set or even checked it. I was going to contact RB Designs(correct name?) about head and carb. But was informed that they do not do Gas Gas heads anymore. Any suggestions?

    High altitude jetting help

    I'm going to Colorado for a 4 day ride next month. I have a 13 200 xc. My area(western KY) is around 400' elevation. Going to Silverton CO which I believe is 9000'. I currently have a 38 pj, 70 main, and n3ch needle in middle clip. Jetting is close but I know needs to be changed for the elevation and temps. Suggestions?

    Colorado plate questions?

    Thanks for the info. We are staying in Silverton every night so it will be day rides from there. Any suggestions for single track? We rode the same area last year and found some good trails, but a lot of 2 track and jeep trails. Will the trails be clogged with riders with it being Labor Day weekend?

    Colorado plate questions?

    That is what I am thinking. I have no urge to act like a fool on pavement or in a town. I do that quiet well off road! My show off days are long behind me!
