Considering a KDX220SR
« on: March 21, 2019, 08:55:53 am »
Hi All, I have the option of buying one of these with less than 5000km on the clock, I used to own a Kdx200 '87 model. My understanding is that the SR models has smaller carbs and longer gearing ratios (is this true?). Am I correct to say that it compares to a DT200? as I quite like the DT200's. I specifically want to go for a two stroke probably due to childhood ftttich - I will anyway end up putting 2500km on the bike per year.

I would appreciate anyone owning a KDX220SR or KDX200sr giving me an opinion on the following:

1. Fuel economy (range)
2. Part availability 
3. General reliability
4. Anything to look out for when buying.

Thanks

It is a grey import and buggerall in common with the locally available 220 . And you might have a problem  with spares

Thanks, are all SR models imported? Donít know if grey products are such a major issue nowadays because of ebay and online.. still think it might be something different and overall a nice bike that I can do gravel day trips once or twice a year.

If its priced well why not, not many street legal 2Tís around. Sure you will have a hoot on it. Same year Kdx and KX may share the same parts.

Priced at R15k, kilos is so low and it being a 2005 model which was the year before they ended production imo it is a rare find. For R15k I get disks front and rear, decent suspension, lightweight, it has the oil injection system so no pre-mix and fully street legal.

If only the DR200ís where better priced I would consider one as well but most of them at that price point has got serious kilos on.

Anyway thanks for the replies..

The KDX220SR was made between 1993 and 1999 whereas the KDX220R which is the race model was made up until 2005 , the two bikes have very little in common with each other .
