Hey there just bought a 82 kdx 175 decent shape and seems to run ok...but definitly needs a lil love been rode hard and put away wet a lot lately... Im brand new to dirtbikes especially two stokes but i am fairly mechanicly saavy as far as doing general maintenance and basic diy repairs. Ive ridden harleys for 10+years and work on my own vehicles (which are also old and carburated lol)when things break down and Im only working with a basic home garage and tools so Im just wondering if anyone has any info on this specific bike and some ideas for general things to check and what i should be doing as far as routine maintenance. .. and maybe any specific tools i should get for the old two stroke. Also i know i have to do fork seals and the new ones came with the bike so is this a big job in anyones opinion? Or is it something i can probably tackle myself?
