1st and 2nd gear on my 95 kdx 200 does not seem to have any power. When I'am in 3rd on up everything seems ok. I thought the little power in 1st and 2nd was natural for this bike until I talked to a friend last night who also rides a kdx and he said 1st and 2nd gear on this bike should have great torque? Is he correct and if he is, is it likely my valves are stuck open? It looks like from the shop manual if I take off the KIPS resonator cover I can look in to see if the valves are open. Is this a correct assumption? Thanks for the help.
