I just bought a 2001 200 MXC from kmurr, he had it posted on the "for sale" forum. Got a smokin deal !
This bike is a real eye opener...not a laid back woods bike, this thing rips, even with a 12 oz. flywheel weight !!
I like the idea of stuffing a 200 in a 125 frame. It is really easy to throw around, although I could use a little advise..

1. How do I get the front brake to work better, my 99 KX even had better front brake:scream:

2. Any way to smooth out the midrange hit, like I said this thing has a 12 oz flywheel weight. Maybe fatter jetting?!

Thats all, I think I will really like this bike!

Maybe I will have to change my name now :cool:

Look at the gorups @ www.egroups.com
search for ktm200 no spaces
they have 250 members and info for ktm 200's
To lessen the hit add thick base gasket to cylinder or add a 2nd.
Jetting
42 to 48 pilot
1366 or 1367 needle 2nd or 3rd position
190 to 195 main
1 1/2 air screw.
Change rear sprocket to 45 or 46 tooth

smoother power

Single taper needle, drop two teeth on rear sprocket.

If you are looking for a little more grunt, Delta II. The Delta makes it pull harder everywhere.
