Just wondering what your thoughts are on this. I've done all the basic mods to my 2001 KDX (rev pipe, silencer, guards, skid plate, reeds, etc.). I've had a few guys including my dealer over the last few months tell me that I have taken away all of the KDX's trail manners, mainly by adding the pipe. What do you think? I know the pipe makes the bike hit a bit harder and while the things are no 250 MX'ers, they're no dogs either. Does anyone feel that for slow trail riding and really sloppy conditions that the bike may be better off left stock? My problem is that I put all the junk on it only after having the bike for about a week, so I really don't know what it is like to run it stock. Just curious.
