Justn1k posted a topic in Kawasaki 2 StrokeHello guys. I picked up a kdx 220 last year. I've ridden it a bit and am really enjoying it so far and I am pleased with my skill level (I will probably try to upload a gopro video of a ride in the coming weeks. My trail rides thus far have been excellent but my energy seems to peter out near the end of the ride. I think the primary limiting factor as far as my performance goes when I am riding is that I am typically very, very sleep deprived (I have been dealing with severe insomnia due to protracted benzodiazepine withdrawal for about 2 years now and regularly go 3-4 days with virtually no sleep...some days I will get 1-3. In general its just really bad, though). Anyways, (insomnia aside, also) I have been just pondering the idea of taking part in a hare scramble recently but am curious if the bike I have would be even remotely competitive. The bike has an fmf fatty pipe w/ the turbine core 2 silencer, v-force 3 reeds, and the air box lid is removed. It doesn't really seem to be lacking in power as long as I stay on the pipe, quite the contrary actually, though I do feel that at some point I could be wanting more. I would prefer some additional luggability down low for the steep rocky sections and ask myself if going with the ktm 300 would have been a better long term option. I am aware I would be racing up against 250s. Do you think this bike would be even remotely competitive if I were to pursue competing in a hare scramble?
So I already know that the kdx 220 had more low rpm torque but less top end horsepower. This is due mainly to the 220 coming with a smaller carburetor stock right? If that's the case, will swapping in some aftermarket parts get me the best of both worlds, or am I missing something?
So basically I’m a complete idiot and just bought a new carburetor about a month ago, (PWK 35mm Keihin Carb) for my 1993 KDX 200. I put it in, worked great nothing wrong. However, last night I was out practicing my wheelies, and I totally dumped off the back of the bike and it fell on its side. It was leaking gas out of the overflow like it should. However when I got the bike back up and started running again, I ran into a problem. It won’t stop leaking out of the overflow unless the fuel is off... I don’t know what to do. Is it possible that the needle and seat got messed up from the bike hitting the ground? Or is there a complete other reason why it could be doing this? I’m unsure what to do at this point and I’m searching for help... I love riding just as much as the next guy but this bike is becoming a hassle and I’m sinking a lot of money into it.
