    It's flat amazing what a competent rider can do on these little bikes, good reason why they were some of the highest volume bikes ever manufactured.

    I remember running the Boot Hill National Enduro years ago on my 86 Husky 400 and Jeff Fredette passed me going up Colorado Blvd (rocky sumofbitch) like I was standing still and I was throttled up spitting rocky roost on anyone behind me :ace

    Wondering if Jeff is still around now that I have another KDX in my over crowed gararge

    He built me a complete engine, with RB carb bore, his head/porting for my KDX220 a few years ago.

    Yup, he was a hero of mine since I spent waaaay too much time/money on KDX's from 86-92. He and Roeseler were my heeerooooeeeesss... :)
    FBF with Jeff, he's spends quite a bit of time 'wheelin these days...

    I don't recall KDXs as being class leading Race bikes although Freddette and many others did very well on them with mods.

    As a cheaper, excellent playbike, my kid and GF learned to ride and progress on KDXs very well, they both rode an air cooled bike with the Enduro Computer setup and modified suspension. I just bought a stock water cooled 2003 KDX 200 from sweet memories and will play with it for cheap, maybe find the older enduro computer to fit

    From around 89-92 they were really the only 200 to have. My wife raced one of the few white ones around, a 92 IIRC. Yamaha made a few WR200's and they were contenders but the aftermarket supply but the KDX ahead if one was willing to spend the coin. They were sort of short lived and the KTM's weren't out yet. The KDX's were a bit heavy but with mods they would rock. I raced 200B for a long time and top 4-5 guys were all on KDX's. Back then, Slavens did all my suspension and motors and my KDX's were bad ass, rock solid bikes. LR and JF made them famous though. I have a signed poster from LR in my shop. He signed it at Block and Tackle enduro while we stood around and had a beer... really a cool guy! I'd like to take one for a spin again... someday!

    I can probably hook you up with a Pacemaker (showing my age here) or an ICO if you want a trick old-school enduro mount! :)

    Paint faded, wrong seat, Something not quite right about the fairing, But almost any CB700SC for a grand is a fairly good deal.

    There was a real nice one in Boulder last week for $1800. One of the best bikes I ever sold. :lol3
