Question about 1998 kawasaki KDX 200
My 1998 kdx 200 had the same problem last week. I know exactly what the problem is. My air filter was so clogged with dirt,oil,gunk, that there was absolutely no air or very little mixing with the fuel that it just refused to run. I fouled 3 plugs trying to make it back to campground. I also had black gunk just a dripping from my exhaust which has never happened before, but since it wasnt getting any air it was running so rich. At first i thought that i got water in my carb or fuel lines somehow,cause we were going through some nasty deep puddles. when i got to camp and removed my seat and saw my air cleaner i knew exactly what the problem was. I cleaned out the air cleaner and she ran again...but just like you stated, on the trail my bike acted like i was running out of fuel and just stalled. wish it wasnt when i was doing about 35 but ya know how it goes...i let my bike sit for 5 min, cause wouldnt immediately restart, then it would start. I would make it another 500 yards and stall again. confused i switched tank to reserve, still had plenty of fuel but i was stumped. then eventually i would foul a plug but i always carry 3 plugs even though i make it 2 seasons on 1 plug....so im 99% sure thats your problem....

SOURCE: Fork oil level: 2006 KDX 200
This all depends on what size forks you have, but a good rule of thumb is 120ml. After that then what you want to do is to ride the bike and make adjustments to your front end until your liking.

The side stand kill switch can go bad and do this. Check the switch with an Ohm meter. Also, check the wiring harness connections. Fix any loose connections. Check the handlebar kill switch. It can go bad also.

The clutch in your bike is a wet clutch. There is a lot of hyrdostatic friction even when the clutch is released completely. I think a large factor is the type, age and condition of oil. Perhaps something as simple as an oil change would help.
