Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives.

Use Two Stroke ENGINE oil in the pump. If not doing an automatic oil pump the mix the gas and oil 32 to 1. That equals 4 ounces of two stroke ENGINE oil to one gallon of gas. NEVER use motor oil in the gas. Only two stroke engine oil.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:

1996 kdx 200, starts good, boggs out and shuts off while riding like it is running out of gas. any ideas?


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....

2002 kdx 200 reman motor idles great under acceleration and load it runs poorly smokes excessively and fouls sparkplug been running a 50 to 1 ratio of gas oil mix any suggestions


Make sure you have recommended spark plug. 2cycle bikes require a hot plug in order to burn fuel efficiently. I'm not that familiar with your bike but it seems too new-ish for the rings to be bad already. Another thing is... that you can't just use any 2cycle oil... you must use the manufacture's recommended oil for the fuel. Many of these machines are picky about which oil is used. Fuel to air mixture many times is the problem... this has to be just right on a 2cycle... they are touchy if they don't get the right amont of air. I hope somehting here will help you to find the answer or at least eliminate a few things if nothing else :)

My 98 kdx 200 misses when getting into high revs, so it doesnt get to high revs at all, just misses and splutters, even when you in neutral and hold the throttle open just doesnt get to that constant revs,...


Please do not run this bike again... take it to a QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL and have him clean and set the carburetor!!. Change the transmission oil also. Make sure the exhaust is clean and dry.. UNBURNT fuel in the exhaust is inviting a fire/explosion!!

Kdx 200 clutch not engaging properly


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.

Fuel mixture 1998 ?


I think the official ratio is 32:1 but a range of 25:1 to 40:1 is acceptable. If you run it wide open and hard most of the time, use the 25:1 or higher oil mix. If you run it pretty easy, then you can go up to 40:1 or less oil.

Good Luck

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.

OIL GOIN FROM GEARBOX OUT MUFFLER


Thats not likely. What you are seeing is excess oil from you gas and oil mixture. Not sure if your still running the oil injection pump but it sounds like you have been running a very rich oil/fuel mixture.
The gearbox oil is not accessible through the crankcase. They a totally separate sealed sections of the motor. If by chance you are losing gearbox oil your bike will billow a very white disgusting smelly cloud of smoke. If that is what is happening you may have a right side crank seal blown which will allow the oil to be sucked from the gearbox into the crankcase. Hopefully this is not the problem because with your model I'm 85% certain you will have to split the cases to replace the main seal on the right side engine center case. If thats the case I'd highly recommend you replace both right and left main seals as well as main bearings.
You will need some special tools to do this job. I can tell you what you need to do the job and if you like to DIY I can tell you how to do it and what to look out for.
Best of luck.
