    1995 kdx 200 compression specs

    Finally did a compression check on my bike. 139 psi, seems pretty good to me for my bikes 2nd piston over the span of 23 years

    Kdx 200 plug after new pipe and tune

  4. So I swapped my FMF Turbincore2 pipe with this ISDE pipe by FMF and i checked the plug after a ride and it looks much better, the center color looks much better, i adjusted the air screw and let a little more air in to compensate for the rich mixture, throttle response is better, its not as smoky out of the pipe, and no more bog when u get on the throttle

    kdx200 every gear acts like neutral

    Thats exactly what happened to my kdx. Riding one day and BOOM every gear was neutral, it was the countershaft splines, stripped right off, had to split the cases to swap it out, had a lot more work done to it so im kinda happy it happened lol

    Kdx 200 plug after 3 days

    After about 3 days of riding or 3-4 gallons of gas this is what my plug looks like. Seems rich huh?

    Kdx 200 jetting

    Ive never messed with the jetting on my kdx and I need to, but not sure what jet to use or how to jet. I dont know what i have in it right now. The bike runs a little rich from what i can tell, I adjusted the air screw a while back and it helped a little bit, im afraid if I mess with the air screw anymore and not swap the jetting i could mess the bike up and it not running right. I know its probably pretty easy i just have zero clue on what to do, the carb is probably the only thing Ive never messed with on my bike. The plug whenever i clean it is always dark and a little wet on the outside. The center insulator is not quite as dark as the outside. Im just afraid if i change it I’ll make it run lean and blow an engine, thats why Ive just left it alone.
  9. My shifter lever and rear break petal and maybe a couple of parts on my bike show heavy signs of wear (paint is rubbed off from use overtime) and Id like to get a can of soray paint just to touch them up to look a little better. Anybody know what kind of spray paint would match them the best? Same color as swing arm and engine

    1995 kdx 200 compression specs

    So on my kdx Ive been curious as to how my top-end has been doing. The bike has only had 2 owner prior to me (I have bill’s of sale and paperwork) and its on its second piston and rings, but have no clue when it was last changed. So Im thinking about buying a compression tester and seeing what it is. Does anybody know the psi in-spec range on a 1995 kdx 200? Dont get me wrong the bike runs great and makes great power, kicks over like a mule and doesnt disappoint. But a 23 year old bike having only 1 other piston in its life is a little funky, especially for a 2-stroke

    Oily mess coming from exhaust port

    The pipe isnt dented, havent taken the pipe off since rebuild, copper crush gasket should be fine

    Oily mess coming from exhaust port

    Yea i put brand new springs on when i had the engine work done
  14. Apollo Rider

    Oily mess coming from exhaust port

    I had a ton of engine work done about 3 months ago and replaced the copper ring and the o-rings for the exhaust port, i didnt tear or stretch the o-rings they should be fine
  15. So on my kdx i recently noticed a fair amount of oil running down from my exhaust port by the pipe. Is it a bad thing? When the bike is running you can see a visible exhaust leak, yet there is premix oil coming from it. Is it bad? If so how do i fix it? (Yes i know i need to wash the bike badly) its been cold and rainy lately so havent been able to)
