1990 KDX200 - PLATED - the seller is fed up working on it - giving it away for $0.99

I didn't respond in time...the first guy has to back out before he calls me =(

edit: bike was gone 40 mins after I contacted him



you guys remember this post?

well...this bike is now for sale...for $2,500

http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/mcy/4517340494.html

I would've bought that bike, given it a good home, and rode it...now it's just being flipped for a profit. Why bike Gods?? why??

cool bike and thanks for looking out!

not street plated though =(

I see a lot of green sticker 125-250's for sale around $800-$1,500 (I just picked up a YZ250 pretty recently), but what I'm really looking for is a 2-stroke MX/woods bike with a street plate too...I just don't ride as much as I'd like to living in Long Beach without that plate

there are other bikes for sale that are street plated, but not interested in 4 strokes...

here's a plated KLX300 for $1,000

http://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/mcy/4441555751.html

I search for the following daily: "street legal 2 stroke" "plated" "RMX250" "WR250" "KDX200" "KDX250"

all this searching is making me antsy - anyone down for a few laps at milestone on Wednesday AM?

I'm just going to take the YZ250 as-is...

man, this guy is high on his own supply:



he has an AZ plated '03 CR250 for $2,800

you can NEVER convert this to a CA plated bike...and depending on the ranger that catches you, he can fine you (and take your bike) for not being compliant with CA laws

ahhhh....I love dirt riding. A few sessions of that calms me down better than any amount of TV or food :17:

new CNG station opened up in Santa Ana - $1.49/gallon!!!

11.2 gallons for under 17 bucks...love that CNG!!



new novice track at milestone!







much smaller than the old one, and now combined with the peewee track.

finally got to ride the YZ250....

firstly - it needs a gone through...there are a bunch of fasteners missing and the radiator shroud nearly blew off on the freeway



the carb was easy to sort out - the previous owner had the idle speed screw really far in. Backed it out about 4 turns and the engine doesn't idle high anymore

otherwise, after re-learning how to ride a 2-stroke, getting past my "arm pump", and getting used to the 250...this thing was a blast...

finally figured out my groove - ride 10-15 mins, take a 10 min break, repeat. After my 3rd or 4th session, things started to click and I got a lot smoother







but you def. have to be careful with this thing...I got confident railing a berm, accidentally clicked up a gear and almost overshot the next turn...also was in a gear higher than expected for the rear tabletop, then cleared the whole thing on accident...crazy bike!!

great deal on that bike, thanks for the heads up!

I'm just holding out for a 2-stroke...I'm more comfortable working on them and there's something about that violent riiiiiing ding ding that rocks my socks

and I'd get launch pics, but nobody else seems to take them except me!

if you check any of the rides of I've been on...it's usually pics of other people I'm riding with. I'm also a noob on the novice track anyways...nothing to see here, ha
