I have a 98' KTM 200exc. I wanted to know what the cheapest/easiest purchase for an aftermarket upgrade would be. It could be more speed, power, horses, shifting whatever.. just wanting a cheap but useful upgrade.
Power won't do you any good if the bike doesn't handle
I raced a stock motor'd 200 for 1.5 seasons, stock pipe, jetting, reeds.... But I had put well over $1k into suspension items. The bike was just as fast as the other guys because I wasn't always fighting to keep the bike going the right way. I also wasn't as fatigued trying to wrestle the bike.
Get a gun case from walmart,put your forks and rear shock in it. Send it to MX Tech,with your weight,riding ability and usage. Not cheap,but worth double every penny! I have used plenty of other so called suspension experts,call Jeremy or Brandon(Brandon is doing engine work!)
