I rode my '98 200 for the first time yesterday through the trails of Naples Fl after installing a gnarly woods pipe. Wow, that pipe turned my sweet little schoolgirl into a snarling, raging bitch!! What a difference! Yeah, you guys were right, the pipe makes all the difference.
I got into trouble a couple of times on the trail by using a bit more throttle than I needed. Popping over a log I gassed it like I used to and found myself off the trail an into the Palmettos! Lesson learned. It's just so much snappier.
It goes to show that the KDX 200 is such a great bike. Stock it's a great learner, but with a few mods it's really competitive. If any of you are on the fence, buy the KDX!

Great!!

Think of all the other stuff you can do!

'Snarling, raging...' is just the beginning! ;)

I just put an FMF Gnarly on my 99 220, mainly because I got it cheap and because my stock pipe was getting pretty dinged up. I already had an FMF silencer on it, to save weight. I was very pleasantly surprised by the increase in power that the pipe gave me, when I really wasn't expecting it.

Ya i put a FMF Fatty Pipe, FMF PowerCore Silencer, and FMF Torque Reeds on my 200
and HOLY SH*T it went from getting beat by my friend on his Warrior 350 to my bike eating it and sh*tting it out! It made that much of a difference!

Question: How much louder is the bike with the FMF pipe and silencer compared to the stock exhaust?

not much at all. all you can really hear is it breathing better. I has more of a popping noise too, instead of that normal KDX Diesel noise. Kinda sounds like a quiet MX bike.
