Hello all, new guy here. My name is Carl and I am from the mountains of Western North Carolina. My ride is relatively new to me as I have had it for about a year. It is a road-legal 2000 model KDX200. I have been slowly upgrading it to fit my riding.

Before this bike my other "dirt bikes" have been (in this order): Honda Z50, Yamaha MX175, Honda TL125, Kawasaki KDX400, Yamaha WR200, and a KTM 640 LC4.

Modifications so far:

FMF pipe and silencer (previous owner installed)
Air Striker Carb
Devol Radiator guards
Double rear rim locks with Pirelli MT-43 trials tire.
Shinko 90/110 front tire.
Renthal big diameter bar. flatter and higher bend than stock
Enduro engineering forward offset bar riser
ARC Clutch lever and perch
Enduro engineering brush guards
IMS wide foot pegs
2005 kx front fender
Polisport mmx headlight

Ordered the Maier MX style rear fender.
Most of the parts have been purchased through Cogent Dynamics (a great local suspension company) who is hopefully upgrading my suspension in the very near future!

I hope to be a part of this community. I am sure to have many questions for you all!

Thanks for the warm welcome guys!

I live outside of Asheville in a little town called Zirconia. We do most of our riding up near the TN/NC border off of I-40.
