I cut mine from grey electrical pvc. Took about an hour. Sand'em & hold in place with cable ties. 2 inch fit perfect.

Yup they are just built in vacuum cleaner tubing. Took about an hour and work great! Cost was about $3 :) Just slit them up the back and notch them out to fit around the different castings on the forks. Once complete all you have to do is stretch them out and snap them around the forks. They will hold themselves in place.

Dave, what store did you buy this at? My parents live in Calgary and could pick it up for me.

I'd like to see some good close ups too. Looks good from a distance. If they are sano, I'd try a pair.

Sometimes I really envy you KDX folk. You have as much info as the rest of the site combined. :ugg: 

 

Happy Hotdog,

I've been thinking about it some. The KDX is an awesome bike w/ a lot of respect due, but here in the U.S. you can license an ATK or an MXC for the road, but not the KDX. I've ridden newer KDX models uncorked and the 125 ATK. No MXC's. Anyone else ridden these other bikes? What are your thoughts comparison wise?  The legality issue is becoming more important as time goes by.

I'll see if I can get some close up pics. The final product is very sano and you certainly can't tell they home fabricated.

KDX200Kev any hardware store will have the tubing in stock, you wont have any problem fining it. I like the vac. tubing because it is quite thin and easy to work with yet protects very well.
