    How did that carb turn out?

    I am so bad at cleaning that stuff up. What did you use on the cases? 2324BA3B-8B01-4EE9-A3CD-FDB1076BD07D.jpeg

    Carb was FULL of piss. In other words, glad I had another around.
    I put the cases in the glass bead blast cab. Should maybe have it all back together this weekend...........maybe.

    I just picked this guy up.

    $700 and a Klim overlander that I bought off of the PO for $300 :rofl Running condition, but I have to go back frigging 25 years till the last time that I putzed with a Kawi 2 smoker, this should be fun.

    The real question is how long can I last before tearing it apart and messing with things....and these old dynosaurmobiles there is always something that can be messed with.

    Steel tank, smaller carb (I think) and oil injection like the Australian KDX200F?

    So got the bike....it is sort of baggy until it warms up then it is nasty.

    Man I forgot what a 21" wheel feels like its SO SLOW.....I also forgot what a bike with no battery is.

    So for the hive


    Anyone got thoughts on the reliability of the (fuel) oil pump?

    I came across the carb boot and US spec carb but I will have to modify the boot to use the oil injector....which I have to say I don't really want to remove. Also anyone got sources for the shop manual, and springs? I am a solid 60 pounds to heavy for whatever is on the bike now, its grounding like a mother.


    Man though, took it out (with my Ducati's plate on it :lol3) and once i got it in some snotted up single track, the little thing is FUN AS FUCK, super easy to ride and a only as much nasty as you want it to have. I forgot what riding on a loose surface with +500lbs of beast to wrestle with.

    So, so good, and I haven't ridden anything more gnarly than a fire road in decades.

    Got a question for the KDX200SR owners.
    Is the gearing ratio different than say a US version of the off-road KDX?
    Reason I ask, is I SuperMotarded my 1990 and would like a more road going
    speed potential. And would it be possible to locate said gears in the US?
    I am running 14/42 gearing already and the bike is really on the pipe so to speak
    at anything above 40MPH in top gear. Would be nice to cruise at 50-55 and not
    be right where the bike goes into "wild mode"
    BTW, this bike has the LA Sleeve Co. 240cc kit. No primary power valve, but does
    have the sub valves. It sure does pull strong in the lower half of the RPM range.
    Thanks and cheers, Jeff

    Your overall drive is going to be significantly different with the 17" rear on it...

    Ideally you take the difference in OD between stock and your street tire and then adjust the final drive by the difference......with stock (I think) its not going very fast when I hit 6th, maybe 50-55mph......and I am usually wrapping it out, I am used to big CC twins.

    After working 7 days a week since March I have had a day to put things together a bit more. Well, after a 9hr day at work I got this far.
