I am considering a kdx200 fro my wife. There is a '93 for sale in my area for $1700. Ad claims it has only ben ridden abour 500 miles and is stock.

Does this seem like a fair price? Also, how much does a 93 200 weigh. The main reason we're looking at a 2-stroke is the weight savings (oh yeah, my wife just loves the sound and smell of a 2 stroke. I tell her to just run the weed wacker to get her fix:p )

That seems slightly high to me, I bought mine (got an exceptionally good deal) with a big bore kit installed, A-Loop reworked suspension, an extra pipe, silencer, clutch, k/s shaft and miscellanious other goodies for much less than that (don't wish to post exactly how much though). I believe mine weighs in at a slim and sultry 245 pounds :)

The price is not too bad (IMHO)

Hello Magellan,

I would think $1700 is a reasonable price, not a steal but not bad. It really depends on the conditiion of the bike. I would prefer to buy a bike with 500 trail miles and little mods, then a highly modified bike. I think the fact that it is stock actually boosts its value (Again IMHO). I Chicagoland the a 93 KDX for $1700 would not be in the paper very long before it would be gone.

regards,
WoodChuck

If it is as clean as it sounds (only 500 mi) I would buy it for that price. Have fun and I am sure she will love it!!

70 Marlin,

what's a Fredette? I know who Jeff is, and I take it he has worked on the KDXs you speak of but what has been done that the bike now bares his name? :think just curious, suspension?, porting?

with all respect,
WoodChuck

i would say $1300 would be fair
and if that $1000 96 is the one i think it is
it needed $1000 worth of work

Chuck - Marlin's '99 was owned by a friend of mine who basically bought it, then had Jeff set it up just like his race bikes, before he ever rode it. My '96 200 was the same thing.

How's that GG300?

Hello WoodsRider,

The GG EC300 is totally awesome, I could not be happeir with the bike. Its a total tractor which can really get up and move when you need it to.

it didnt need over $400 dollars worth of parts.

the 96' KDX200 is a fredette bike because.
he bought the bike.
he put the 220 cylinder on it.
he did the suspension
stage 6 mods.
and i have the papers saying that its a fredette bike.

it had a fatty pipe on it but, the guy before me dented it.
so now it has a PC on it.

used to have a FMF isde silencer on it but, i took it off and put the stock back on because you have to have a S/A to ride on the trails.

value guide

hey,

i found a good website for looking up the values of new and used cars, boats, and most importantly motorcylces. you can select retail or trade in value, i usually use trade in because it is more realistic in my experioence. if you looking to buy or sell a bike go to www.kbb.com and find out a reasonable price for it.
