Kdx200 vs kx250

Postby thuginfc » 08:55 am Jan 27 2013

How it goin everyone!!??

My riding buddy recently gave me a really good deal on a 2004 kx 250 all the parts are aftermarket and in beautiful condition

I'm wanting to get it just to swap front ends as his gps'd suspension is set up for my weight should be close on the kdx.

My main question is after I switch the kx forks to the kdx will the kdx forks go on the kx for me to sell after I take all my needed parts off?

Really I need the money to rebuild the kdx but thinking I could get some parts I need from the kx ( levers,clutch cable, caliper guards, bars, foot pegs, will theese parts even swap over?) and sell the bike with my leftover parts on it.

Lemme know what u think

I don't think I would buy a 2004 kx just to swipe the forks and then sell it with KDX forks. Just saying. Keep the 04, if its as nice as you say. Find some cheap kx forks to rebuild and put on the KDX.

I'm with Julien. Keep the 04 complete and just find some kx forks.
Plus, the kdx upper triple won't work on the kx as you will have to swap stems between triples and the diameter of the kx stem is larger at the top clamp.

take your 04, add rekluse, fmf pipe, 13oz weight, 47 tooth rear sprocket and enjoy. Had my hybrid for 3 yrs now. Just finished my son's as described. Really thinking about getting a 250. Find another set of forks for your dx, or sell me the rest of your 250 !!!!!
