    You are right. I did nothing but some very minor tweaks and adjusted the ergos a bit for an actual human sized person :lol3

    I spent a year racing the 200 KDX in the SERA enduro circuit and loved it. You all know the stories about the KDX. I also had the pleasure to meet and ride with Jeff Fredette, Mr. ISDE. Mr KDX. Jeff rebuilt my 200 to a 220 and "breathed on the suspension" as only an experienced guy can do.

    The 220 was "slower" and yet times to checkpoints was much FASTER. Awesome bike to compete with, but not awesome when a buddy rides it.... if that makes sense.

    I rode a KDX for over 30 races and had only one DNF. My fault not the machine.

    Truely awesome scoot.

    And may the thief who stole Buzzs die in a fire....

    Fooled ya! You thought this post was about marrying your cousin. It ain't. That's actually not legal in Arkansas, but it is Florida (accord to Inept, esq. the source of all my legal advice).

    No sir, this post is about STREET-LEGAL TWO STROKES! Specifically, street-legal KDXs! I know of two in this here state, and one's got my name on the title, BITCHES!.

    Sure, I had to steal Buzz's bike, hide out for a few years, get him to buy another one, have him sell me that one, switch the parts over and then march down to the tag office and some 'splainin', but a man's got to do what a man's got to do to fool The Man into letting a man have a damn street-legal two stroke. It ain't easy being environmentally offensive. But I take pride in my work.

    Think I'm gonna take this baby on a long road trip. :lol3

    In closing, let me reiterate: I GOT A STREET LEGAL TWO STROKE, NAH NAH NAH NAH NAH NAH.

    Hey I don't even play a lawyer on TV, nor did I stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night--so don't go following any of my legal advice! But seriously, marrying yer cousin in FL is legal. Not that I'd recommend it or anything. Unless your cousin happens to look like Jaime Pressly.

    Coincidentally, I have one who does.

    Nice 2-smoker, BTW.:thumb

    Hey Buzz: Do you remember what kind of dual sport kit you had on your beloved KDX? I need turn signals, a brake light and horn at the minimum, and if there is a way around spending $500 on a Baja Designs kit I'm gonna take it. Tusk sells a kit but it's "total loss," meaning all the accessories run off a Nicad battery that you recharge. That sounds kind of rinky dink to me. The KDX has a stator to run the headlight and tail light. Isn't it possible to tap into that to run the turns signals etc.? Thinking out loud here.

    I didn't run turn signals. I ran an acerbis headlight that had hi/lo, a brake light switch from Sicass Racing run off the front master cylinder, and a NiCad horn. The guys from Sicass were great to deal with too!

    There is another plated two smoke headed to Buzztopia soon. It's really just a bait bike. I'm gonna be sitting in the bushes waiting on the FF to return to the scene of his demise. May you die in a firefight

    I may have a round or two laying around someplace. I'll see what I can dig up. If not I'll just let Molly roam the yard:evil

    Chkminus to the white courtesy phone.... Paging Chkminus to the ehite phone please.

    I agree with this fix, and pics or it didn't happen. Also as a side note If/when I'm in that sort of situation I always throw my wallet on the ground- there is BAIL money in it :lol3

    So I just wanted to wish the guy that rode it last herpes, and other various forms of crotch rot on his way to die in a fire.
