Got questions? We got answers....

I currently own an '89 E-series KDX and love it, I usually order after market stuff so I'm good for the moment. However, I found a '97 KDX 220 in great shape for $750 around my area, I might go check it out and see how I like it

If you want a bike that has no aftermarket, get a 10 year old Husky, or a Husaberg, or an '80's KTM. Even recent Husky's are just now starting to have aftermarket plastic available.
I have noticed some of the aftermarket graphics and seat covers that I could find when I had my '96, are no longer listed for H series KDX's.
I will own a KDX200 as long as is practical to do so.
+1 on the E series comfort remark, though. Those bikes feel like older XR's - with more power, and less weight.
2004 Dual Sported KDX200
1999 Ninja 250 (Daughter's)
1996 DR 650 (stock, mostly street use)

Can anyone confirm if the transmission for the E and H series are the same? I need a trans/2nd gear for my H but can only find E series available.

Thanks!

Look it up on the parts fiche on Ron Ayer's website. http://www.ronayers.com/ Save that website for future reference.

You didn't say whether you needed the 2nd Input or 2nd Output gear but it appears that both match up with older E series 2nd Input and 2nd Output gears. I searched for a '90 KDX200 and as you can see by scrolling down the page to the bottom it lists other bikes the same part number fits.

I got my 2004 KDX220 for $750! Fun trade off from the 450. :shock:
