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.
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?
My manual says to run oil 10w-30 or 10w-40. What brand makes the best clutch oil for a two stroke? What oil do you guys and girls run in your Two stroke dirt bikes? any particular ones to stay away from? Also, semi synthetic, full synthetic, or non synthetic?
