I just bought an '02 KDX 200 this weekend. Its in like new condition, but I have been following this board for some time in anticipation of this purchase, and quite frankly I'm a little scared. Looked to the tech tips to see what needs lube that might not have been done by the dealer but the page is basically blank (or at least I can't see it). I love this bike and would like to treat it right from the get-go. Things seem a little more complicated these days. My last true dirtbike was a Combat Wombat, and all I ever did was mix gas, change oil, and check tire presure. I would like to check swing arm and steering bearings on the kdx, and anything else that might have any adverse effects on it. I am chomping at the bit to really ride it but still to much snow, so I would welcome any advice on what else to look for to use up some basement time. Any help or advice you guys can offer would be greatly appreciated. I have read a large share of the board trying to educate myself but still feel the need for some feedback. I am looking for maintainence items that should be done right away, I'll deal with performance once I'm sure basics are covered. Thanks in advance for your help. This looks like a great site with great people, I am looking forward to participating.
