:) Hello, I have fitted a FMF torque pipe, Power Core 2 muffler, thrown the air box lid and had the carby rejetted. I now need to look at sorting the front end out, it seems very soft now the bike is going so scary fast.
By the way, if anyone over here has a 2000 kdx200 and wants to fit a power core muffler, we have to modify the rear indicators. I have come up with an easy mod that looks great. If anyone needs to know more just drop me a line on email.
Thanks Grinch, Wis.

Hi Wis,

Well It sounds like you've already gone a lot further than I have with modifying your KDX powerwise.

Re: the front end - from what I've heard others say the fork springs are to soft, and they recommend throwing in thicker ones.

Cheers

I agree ;)

The pipe makes a huge difference, both power & weight.

As for the fork springs, if you weigh about 50-55kg, you're fine (especially if you're a pathetic slow rider like me). The bike's unbalanced stock, I've put on a 4.4kg shock spring which works like a charm with the stock fork springs, but suspension's too soft for my husband who weighs about 70kg & is a much better rider (isn't everyone).

Wis, hope your fall offs have soft landings ;) hehe
