Lot to learn

Post by allair » 09:25 pm Jul 05 2019

My son bought a 93 KDX 200. He is 15 and it will be good for him and me to work on it together. I've been scouring over articles and info and have a couple of questions. Where is the best place to purchase a service and repair manual? The obvious problems are: Wont idle, No more adjustment on the clutch and it kills when you put it in gear unless you have it reved up, runs rough pretty much any rpm. thought we would clean the carb tomorrow and start from there. Anyway glad to be part of the forum. I grew up on a cr 125 but this bike looks like it will be a fun bike when we get the bugs out of it.

Welcome to kdxrider.net. Congratulations on the KDX.

eBay for a used OEM manual (GET VERSION TWO, as version one does not have the USD fork info)
Cyclepedia makes a manual

Clean the carb, but DO NOT put it in Berryman's or another usual "dip". Beyond that, fresh fuel, fresh plug (NGK B8ES or BR8ES), clean and oiled filter
clutch basket may be notched (read up on notched baskets)

Take note of your jet sizes when you clean your carb, too
