hi, I was wandering if I put all of these mods onto my 2003 KDX 200. (Boyesen Pro Series Reeds, FRP Tourque Ring, and a FMF Gnarly Desert Pipe with the correct jetting of course.) Would I get lots of top end power, with plenty of pull down low? Im looking for lots of pull with lots of top end. Basicallty, more power everywhere. These mods will be used for racing on MX tracks, I am an on the gas 24/7 rider. i weigh like 212. What would I expect from these mods all combined? Thanks for yor help!

KDX,

 

      I've seen people put a different pipe on their KDX, also reeds. They were very happy w/ the results.

 

I'm expecting some people to advise E.G. porting, which should give you dramatic improvements, especially for the $$$ you spend. He usually ports for what you want. Sounds like you want the 'MO Power EVERYWHERE' package.

 

GoodLuck,

lol, yup, I do! I want plenty of over rev, and plenty of power to pull. Im racing mostly MX and Im always on the gas. Ill list the mods I want again. Please... more input is appreciated.


13/48 Sprocket combo

FMF PowerCore 2 Silencer (already have bought)

FMF Gnarly Desert Pipe (Rev pipe)

FRP Tourque Ring

Boyesen Power Reeds


Im not going to do the porting, because I can't afford it. I am just going to get the best preformance I can with bold on mods. Then mabey porting next year for X Mas. (All the mods I listed here will be for X mas also THIS YEAR 03')

Thanks for your help

KDX,

 

  C'mon, you can't fool me. By the time you spend the $ on the pipe and reeds you are close to a port job. You can't go w/ out your honey for 2 weeks, can you???  :thumb:

BTW, I recently heard that if you put a tourqe ring and a rev pipe together, itll cancel each other out?

HmmmMMmMmm??

That reminds me of a Simpson's episode where Homer buys Marge a bowling ball for her birthday with his name on it. When she complains, he just says, "If you don't want it, I know someone who will....".
Just get everyone KDX aftermarket stuff for presents this Christmas and tell 'em, "I you don't want it....."

KDX more power every where mods without porting?

I am very serious in getting a KDX Pipe, or at least a mod that will help me with a power increase. Ill definately be getting some Boyesen power reeds, and most likely a pipe. what would you reccomend for a pipe if I want better all around performance? or what other mods would you reccomend (besides porting)? I want my bike to be strong down low for cornering, and exitingcorners for those tough jumps, and I want my bike to have plenty of top end and over revv for t hose jumps in those long straight aways.

What does the pro circuit offer? What does the FMF Gnarly desert/wood spipe off besides their specific focuses of top end/bottom end? Are there and performance losses?


I have a FMF PowerCore 2 Silencer right now, Airbox lid mod on my 2003 KDX 200.

Ill be racing MX at my local track, which is motocross, but it has those really tight corners, with the jumps 10 feet ou tof them, Long straight aways with good jumps, high, steep, deep, whoops. When I ride, I am on the gas ALL THE TIME. I guess you can say thi sis one of those supercross styled Motocross tracks.

I hope this is enough information for your opinion, and thank you for your time in reading my post.

sorry to say, but it is hard to get bottem and top end out of a bike, there is always a compromise. woods guys usually have more bottem but less top, outdoor guys more top less bottem, and supercross they liek the bottem also..This is the reasion for diffirent pipes, and sprockets, and set ups. On my 250 I change the gearing and pipe for every MX track i race on, u have to know what u want it to do and set it up for that.

I have a '96 and the first thing I did was junk the air box lid and put on a FMF rev pipe and rejetted put FRP suggested combo.

I havent had time to ride this year and my son had put the stock pipe back on because he "likes the stock power better", says "he thinks it has better bottom end like that". Well, to make it short, I have been riding it a lot around the neighborhood fields etc. lately and didnt think too much about it until I planned a riding trip for next week. I just came back in the house from changing back to the fmf and going for a short ride. My son is NUTS! The bike is so muck more crisp and has much better bottom with much more over-rev. Maybe it was the fact that it was jetted for the FMF or I had just forgotten what a difference the FMF makes but it is an awesome bang for the buck with the rev pipe and I think you get much better bottom to boot.
BTW: I have used the torque ring and couldnt tell any difference. If you are low on bucks, do what I did, Call Fredett Racing and see if they have any used pipes in stock- they often do. If I remember right I got my pipe with a pipe protector already on it, the torque ring and new jetting for about $100.
