    Hmmm, my 2012 WR450f is just too much bike for me. This looks pretty legit.

    Great trail bike that can be dual sported. Reliable as a rock. Perfect for a buddy bike; parts are cheap (if you ever need them). I've owned 3 of these, and would rate it 90% of a KTM 200. Only needs a little spring work to get the balance right front to rear, and some minor mods to lighten it up.

    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... :)

    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
