Hi everyone.My brother just picked up a 2002 kawasaki kdx220R.Since that it was a second handed bike used by the pnwer himself it wasnt tookin care of properly and the bike was bone stock.So my brother had in mind to restore the bike to the 10's and than race it on the long distance trails and also on the road.He had his plan finally set and he decided to go all out on the bike and put every single mod ever built for the bike.This was gonna be a disaster for sure.So in terms of the body work the frame was gonna be repainted,new plastics,dual sport kit,maybe kayaba upside down forks.With the enitre engine in place he wanted to maximize the performance of the engine completely in terms of the motor,exhaust system,air box system, and carburetor.

But I thought the stock forks were state of the art and hand built. Why would you want to replace those?

P.S. if you're brother actually does this, post up a vid.

It is a waist at least 30% of the mods are, and with all the mods the engine will not likely run very well. reason ? some are incompatible with each other on the 220. The money would be more effective on building a Hybrid with a KX 125/220 with a pipe, reeds, RB designs Head and Carb work, suspension work.

I tried and did 60-75 % of the mods you listed on my KDX, and a 05 KX 250 with stock engine , suspension work and flywheel weight is a much nicer bike and more effective at higher speeds than the KDX ever was for half the money.

but then I am an aggressive rider.

well i meen it doesnt kill power but im getting a 2008 300 xc-w (e) from ktm and he wants to fully restore the bike but yet also modify it to the max.If all these mods were made to prove power for the bike than ovbiously it should make some sort of difference i meen what he did now is already alot of stuff on that lust there and he has some more other things to get before he completes the entre project itself.In my opinion i would say its gonna make a huge difference considering that every mod is gonna be on that bike.I have a 2005 kdx220R and i have the boyesen rad valve kit,fmf gnarly gold series desert pipe,fmf power core2 silencer,k&n airfilter, modified airbox,and carb rejetted.Thats 7 mods done to the bike and i felt the diference considering that out of those seven mods the pipe and the rad valave kit made the biggest diference out of them all but i felt the power throughout all it does make good combos hey this is the say "if its made for the bike its ment for the bike".When my bro had it stock in the summer when his project wasnt started yet we raced them head to head and he only got me of the start for not even half a second and i just took him hard after that i cant remeber how much bike lengths it was but i can tell you this much the mods made the diference and i know so cause ive tested it plus you seen my vids some people on these forums.Anyhow it is gonna be a nice project at hand for him and i know hen hes done it were gonna break in both our bikes and than race long distance in the long distance trails that are challenging and than obviously once in a while we will reach a point up ahead were theres a dirt long road and than yeah get to the other trails.We will also race my ktm 300 xc-w (e) against his moded kdx220R but i think this years 300 no matte rhow much mods he does to the bike will take him but i dont know its alot of mods so we will see.For sure stock the 2002 caus eof the technology yes the 300 would take but lets see with the mods its a tough one.

Arghh, you back again? The bike will have 65 hp. KTM's are better. The 300 has like 90 hp.

Now go to the KTM forum where you all can slap yourselves on the back, not that I believe for a second that you are getting one, or that you know someone with a 220 and those mods, or that you have a 200 for that matter.

NO ONE CARES WHAT YOU SAY
MOST NEW BIKES ARE BETTER OVERALL THAN THE KDX
I DON'T RECALL ANYONE SAYING THE KDX WAS THE BEST (EXCEPT YOU ON THE YOUTUBE VIDEO 6 MONTHS AGO)

You are the same guy who used to harass the CRF230 forum, CRFkilla and other names?? Yeah, yeah, it is you.

"All those mods" ?? Cylinder surface is not a mod.


I take it the Eric Gore 240 kit has to come with a sleeve for it to work?? Does he use a kx 250 piston?? I'm not sure how being the stroke is a lot different, If so i'd like to put one of those top ends on a kx 125 for trail riding.

He replates the cylinder. Here is what his web site says.
Cylinder fits 1995-2006 Kaw KDX200/220. Big bore 240cc cylinder, ported by Eric Gorr, fresh NICOM plating, and Wiseco piston kit.
Price: $449

Free UPS ground shipping in the continental USA.

Scroll down to the kawasaki part and that is where it is located.:banghead:

EDIT: lol, I forgot to put in the site you are supposed to scroll down in. http://www.eric-gorr...tbikeparts.html
