Hi there!

I just bought a KDX200-G4 (KDX200SR), it is supposed to be a 1996, but it looks more like a 1992 to me. I am not really concerned about the actual year of factory, but I would really like to get accurate info on this model, which I have not been able to find anywhere on the Internet.

Canadian Dave suggested me to enter this forum and find JAGUAR for information ... So JAGUAR, please help!

I would really appreciate if there's any of you guys who can enlight me with info on this model.

Thanks in advance!

Doesn't the VIN# sort that out?

You should be able to do a search for one of jag's posts and PM him..

Well, maybe you have to be a vaunted subscriber to do that.....

Or, I could do it for you, send him a PM with a link to this thread and tell him, 'You're being paged.'

....and so I did.

Cheers!

Thanks for your response Canyncarvr!

The thing with the VIN is that it was probably removed or has it somewhere else (not in the left side of the steering).

On the left of the steering it says: MADEINJAPANKH1
There's also a little kind of sticker with japanese characters, the only readable text is: DX200G / II-157.

Though, I have the chasis and engine numbers, as follow:
#Chasis (This is supossed to be the VIN as well, accordng to the papers): DX200G-027909
#Engine: DX200GE-018124

Maybe someone can help me now there's a bit more info.

If it's an 'H' model, it's not a '92.

The 'SR' part has caused problems with us US guys in the way of identification of 'stuff' before, though..........

Jag's not always around. If he's not epoxying his transfer ports or grinding on some engine part to see what happens he's out riding somewheres. He may not get back to you poste haste.

Good luck!!

re: this can be a problem on a hot two stroke.

Yep. Lean throttle roll is hell on t-smokes! Best to not do it, which is to say, AVOID doing it.

**edit**
oops. Wrong date.

hi all
man, I got it running again the same day. Sandpaper and a good pocket knife does wonders! I guess we're never too old to learn something new, like don't keep it on-the-pipe at low throttle opening!
Anyway the SR has a smaller carb and air filter, engine oil pump and reservoir for the oil, speedo, turn signals, and higher gearing by sprockets. Mine also has a 19" rear tire.
Take a look at my page on SR modifications and then get back to me with any questions.
oops I don't know how to get my signature to display! help Canyon!

Tico, are you still in your home country of Costa Rica? (Thats what the locals are called there.)
If you are then whereabouts? I used to ride in the mountains of Santa Ana, just west of San Jose. Man, I miss that scenery and fresh mountain air!

Thanks a lot guys! Now I know it is a 1992 for sure!

JPM200, that surely helps, thanks buddy!

JAG, Nice page you got! Really enlightening. Good to hear you got your bike running the same day. Yes, I am in Costa Rica. Actually I live in Heredia and work in Santa Ana, I've got a nice view of the mountains from my office.

I just got this bike a couple weeks ago, thinking of using it mainly to go to work during the summer days, which are just awesome here. It needs a little work, wich I already started. I am supposed to meet today a guy whe has a MIG so we can make the pipe mods. I also have an extra silencer which I opened in order to modify, let me give it a try an I'll tell how it went. Also the powervalve seems to be stuck, I'll robably have to check the cilinder and work on that power valve -it leaks oil-. The bike seems to be too rich (it smokes a bit, specially when it's cool), if I am able to get the pipe worked this will probably help with the carbs richness.

At this moment whe (my wife Wendy and me -Mauricio-) are getting ready to take our kids (Alex -5- and Andres -2-) to swim a bit. After this I am planning to go see the guy with the MIG and hopefully get the modified pipe and silencer. I'll keep you guys updated. See you soon!

Thanks a lot and greetings from Costa Rica! Are yu guys mstly Canadian or from the US?

I had cut my pipe open to start to gut out the insulation but gave up on it when I saw how extensively it is double-walled. The insulation starts at the header and goes farther than halfway of the pipe! Too much for me. For one, it would be near impossible to get it out of the header and then even if you did it leaves the header section too wide. Someone else already did it and said it left the bike with less power than it had before. Save your pennies and buy an aftermarket pipe or make your own.
So have you ridden up the mountain just south of Santa Ana? That's where I used to ride. If you go over to the other side of the mountain then there are two long trails leading to the next small town. Going there and back is a great ride and takes a couple hours. Just don't try it when the ground is wet because some of the trail sections are hard packed slick clay that is near impossible to get through because there are bike swallowing ruts. very challenging

Hi Jag!

Well no luck yet with the pipe mod, I was able to go to my friends shop yesterday, I'll have to wait until next week. I've been also thinking of getting an aftermarket pipe and silencer instead. So far, I know a guy who has in stock ProCircuit pipe an silencer and there's another place where I can also buy an Answer silencer (I think I like the Answer silencer above the Procircuit). So far, the ProCircuit pipe seems t be only available here. I'll probably end buying the aftermrket parts. YEsterday I gor a couple Pirelli MT21, which I'll store until I can make the other mods and have the bike as I want.

Yes I've been south Santa Ana, nice trip! I did that some years ago wit a friend of mine. In that moment I was riding a Suzuki TS125X (water cooled); which I still keep and hope to fix for my wife. I really enjoyed the ride. I hope I'll find some other people who like mountain riding so I can go out the mountains again (lately it has becomed a bit dangerous out there like for going alone).

Pura Vida!
