    My 2001 EXC has lights on it, didn't they come from the factory that way? I'm going to add turn signals to mine using the Tusk wiring kit from RM. I've done three other bikes with that harness & it's well done, uses a small Lipo battery that you need to charge occasionally but other than that I've got no complaints.

    Picked up this 1967 Suzuki T200 a couple of months ago. Right piston was seized, forks were bent and a few minor parts were missing. She's a work in progress...

    Thanks all, been a fun stay for a couple years. Sold the plated kdx200. Was a fun bike, not as reliable as my xr's. (Stators in particular and the cause of repeat failure I couldn't track down) Have an xr280 for the rocks which works better, and an xr650r for more open stuff. Thanks for the tips and good luck. Mechanic services being what they are..

    Yeah, he's pretty serious. I sold thenkdx, but it came back. The dmv clerk mixed up the engine and Vin numbers so buyer felt it might lose the plate if he tried to correct it.

    Took it riding, works for me! Guess I'll keep it. I have an xr250/280 and have for some time, thought I'd cut back. I'll keep the kdx, and give the xr250 to my daughter when her army time is up.
    I rode the kdx recently in the mountains and had a good time slipping clutch getting up snotty xr250 trails but more zip , I think there's still a lot to learn from the 2 stroke!

    Just jumped into this post. Figure I would show off my plated '03 KDX 220. Love this bike. Used it a couple times for adventure rides on the lost coast and DV. Now it is primarily used for OHV parks and tight woods riding in the high Sierra.

    This is just another KDX for me. Siezed topend. Came with an almost complete parts bike. This one is titled and reg'd till 2019. $500 for both. Going to run the VIN on the 2nd and see how bad the fees are. If cheap enough I'll build it up also.

    DSCF1860.JPG DSCF1863.JPG DSCF1867.JPG How much orange bling can I put on this thing? I had a 98 EXC200 and now I've had this 13 200 XC-W. Both great KTMs. I've had other displacement KTM two strokes, but I love the 200 best. KDX 200 is a great bike but a bit too lethargic for my riding style, though I ride with guys that still love their 200 Green machines.

    Searching for a 97' re-issue KTM(Jackpiner) 200. Wouldn't mind an older KTM 200 project either, but I'm keeping my 13'. It's the perfect woods bike for NE and upstate NY.
