The Kawasaki KDX200 is an intermediate enduro motorcycle intended predominantly for off-road use. It was introduced in 1983 after revisions to the preceding KDX175. It has been a long-standing model in Kawasaki's lineup, having been introduced in the early 1980s, seeing several revisions along the way up to the end of its production in 2006. The KDX200 had Kawasaki's KIPS (Kawasaki Integrated Powervalve System), assisting to maximize mid-range to top end power.

Generational revisions[edit]

While performance specs remain consistent for all specific models, some differences may apply to non-American models such as frame and plastic color, metal fuel tank, oil injection, features such as blinker lights, high output coil/stator, battery rack, luggage rack, etc.

KXT250 TECATE 3 WHAT PARTS SWAP INTERCHANGE?

Try to find KX250s that match up to the years of T3 you have. Many parts swap. For 1984/85 Tecate use 1983/84 KX250 motors. For 1986/87 Tecate use 1985-1986 KX250 motors but 1985 cylinder and some internals are different.

Link to Tecate Manuals:
http://www.oscarmayer.net/atc/manuals/
1984/85: http://www.oscarmayer.net/atc/manuals/Kawasaki/1984-85_KAWASAKI_TECATE.pdf
1986 supplementhttp://thequadconnection.com/Manuals/1986_KAWASAKI_TECATE_SUPPLEMENT.pdf

For all years Tecate 3:

Try to find KX250s that match up to the years of T3 you have. Many parts swap. I have stripped an 84 KX and have 2 86 KXs.

Complete KX250 electrical systems 1983-1986 (no lights/ smaller flywheel) can be used and well many more dirt bikes if you have a degree wheel and know how to time everything. Discussed more later in the thread.

T4 Kick start lever and shifter lever.

KX500 FMF expansion chamber o-ring and spring kit

Rear shocks can be made to work: 2001 Raptor, Banshee, 300ex . ( LT250R rear shock is a possibility)

Petcock- Banshee can bolt-on but spigot faces and leaves no clearance for fuel line with the airbox. 2002 kx125 bolts right up.

Oil fill cap plug- KAWASAKI KX 60/65 80/85 1983 - 2009 and KAWASAKI KX 125 / 250 1984 - 2004 and KX500 1986-2004

Tecate 3 swing arms all swap with corresponding linkages meaning the entire rear end cantilever setup.

T3 Intake boots including 1983-1986 KX250 (diameters for carb vary).

T3 Reeds all years and 1983-1998 KX250, KX500 all years, 1987 LT250R/LT500R. Reed cages also same minus Suzuki LTs.

T3 grab bars.

Front sprocket guard / case saver: 1983-2004 KX250, (KDX200 all years?, KX500 ?).

4/156 rear rim like Mojave, 2003 Polaris 500 Predator, and 89/90 Banshee.

Can use many years of KX250 kick start levers but they are longer, spline area is different, and plastic will be in the way of your heel somewhat

Axle Carriers swap for all years.

Stator / flywheel cover are same for all years T3 and 1983-86 KX250.

84-87 T3 and 87-88 T4 flywheels are all the same

Swingarm bolt is same and can use one from LT250R

For 1986/87 Tecate 3:


The 1985 and 1986 KX250 motor is a direct swap into Tecate frame, but the gearing right off the crank is different.

1986 KX: pipe (must mod stinger), intake boot all years KXT, brake levers/ lines, radiators, motor parts (taller gearing off crank-???), cables, intake, chain slides, bearings, rear dog bone longer but adjustable. Stator, flywheel, CDI, and wiring harness must be used as a unit.

1985 KX: same as above except cylinder has different Power Valve (can be made to work).

Stock Front and rear brake discs are the same on 86 T3.

Mojave, Lakota, T4 gas cap

Shifter lever for Honda xr650l 93-04 is a direct fit 86 t3

T-4 tail light.

Lakota tool box- use bracket from Lakota

1983-1986 KX chain slide same as 1986 T3.

4/170 Honda 250R 200x 350x front rim.

Rear wheel hubs: 24 spline 1985-86 LT250R 4/130 and 5/130 1987 LT250R hubs. T-4 (4 on 156mm) and 1986 KLT185 (4 on 4") rear wheel hubs.
The rear hub splines are also the same as These Honda's 70, 90, 11, 125m, 185, 185s, 200, 200e, 200es, 200m, 200s, 200x, and 300ex/400ex.

6008 # rear axle bearings. 6008-2RS, 6008LLU, 6008-RS, 6008LU (depending on one or 2 seals)

1986-2004 KX500 motor. Must mod cross brace to fit spark plug and cap.

For 1984/85 Tecate 3:

Link to Jimmy White Replica manual: http://www.3wheelerworld.com/oldsite/files/Manuals/JWR1.pdf

The 1983 and 1984 KX250 motor is a direct swap into Tecate frame. (This also means the Tecate motor swaps into KX250 frame, sorry, someone needed help with what "swap" means)

1983-1984 KX: motor (taller gearing off crank-??? and trans less robust), front brake levers/lines same as 1986 KX, intake boot all years KXT, rear dog bone longer non-adjustable, Stator, flywheel, CDI, and wiring harness must be used as a unit.

The oem fork bushings are discontinued through kawasaki. But... since these forks are nearly identical to the 1982-83 Yamaha yz 100, the bushings are exact replacements. Yz units are longer and have a bit more travel, but the components in leg are same. Even the oem yz fork seals and dust caps are better quality imo.......Kyb was the supplier for both machines, so this allows me to rebush all of my 85 kxt forks thanks to Yamaha still carrying replacement wear items.

Good stuff. So you're saying I can put a T4 axle on my T3's?


nd4speed

03-05-2009, 08:25 AM

I have not done it but this is the first part I had to search for. I received no help when I asked if the T4 axle worked. Someone just offered to sell me a nice stock one.

Knowledge is power and sometimes profit. So, instead of helping, some just try to make a profit by keeping it a secret or hording or whatever else the American way is.

Seems the entire post was deleted. Wonder why? Wasn't moved to world class help either.

From post:
http://www.3wheelerworldforums.com/s...385#post456385

"AS for the 86+87 you can use a tecate 4 axle.

I have been keep this under my hat for alittle while,after that ordeal with the decals I swore I'd never help this stite again.I give you 1 more chance.

there are 2 things you need to know.

first: you can only use the eliminator axles.the tecate 4 is shorter then the tecate 3.so a plus 4 is only going to be +2 or stock.

second: you must use a rad lock nut there is not enough threads for double nuts.


THANKS TRIZTUNES!!!!!!"

http://www.3wheelerworldforums.com/showthread.php?t=61267

Later in this thread someone successfully installs a T4 axle without mods like what is stated and shown below....

UPDATE ON T4 AXLE. One member installed one but it is not a direct bolt-on. He had to cut a new circlip groove and hub spacers to center the axle, so it does work with little mods. See in here: http://www.3wheelerworldforums.com/showthread.php?t=103939

No one has ever produced a picture just like the guy who said this:
"Look for an extended 400ex axle. I put a RPM Dominator axle in my tecate bearing carrier. I used a 350x brake disc hub and axle nut. I also modified an 84 T3 brake disc to work. You will need to space out your brake caliper if you do this."

2012 DURABLUE will make new axles if you buy enough of them.

The 350x rim and 200x rims works on the front of the 86-87 tecate.

Oh for the rubber bushings for the rear fender brace and headlight frame, you can go to autozone and get the windshield wiper motor bushings. They come in a pack of 3 with the metal insert and fit perfect (located in the universal parts area).

Hydraulic brake lines can be custom made and often locally.

Single piston brake calipers are all very similar just the mounting bracket needs to be swapped and correct brake pads used.

PRM rear grab bars.

Front brake levers are all quite similar.

Front clutch levers / perches all quite similar.

4 bolts on 170mm circle for the front rim if you want to use one off a Honda or custom order a 10" one.

The kick start lever shaft of the Tecate has longer splines than the KX250 so the swap has to use the correct kick start lever and nut. But the parts should fit on either shaft.


This is a BRAND NEW aftermarket replacement kicker / kick start lever for several Kawasaki KE , KDX , KL , KLX , & KX -series offroad motorcycles. This brand new kicker is an excellent, high quality replacement part that should give you years of dependable service. It is made of high quality steel and chrome. This kicker is the equivalent of Genuine Kawasaki OEM Part # 13064-1009 , 13064-1018 & 13064-1027 .

This Kickstart Lever fits:

KE125-A7 KE125 (1980) ( KE-125 / KE 125 )
KE125-A8 KE125 (1981)
KE125-A9 KE125 (1982)
KE125-A10 KE125 (1983)
KDX175-A1 KDX175 (1980) ( KDX-175 / KDX 175
KDX175-A2 KDX175 (1981)
KDX175-A3 KDX175 (1982)
KE175-D2 KE175 (1980) ( KE-175 / KE 175 )
KE175-D3 KE175 (1981)
KE175-D4 KE175 (1982)
KE175-D5 KE175 (1983)
KDX250-A1 KDX250 (1980) ( KDX-250 / KDX 250 )
KDX250-B1 KDX250 (1981)
KDX250-B2 KDX250 (1982)
KDX250-B3 KDX250 (1983)
KL250-A1 KLR250 (1978) ( KL-250 / KL 250 / KLR-250 / KLR 250 / KLR250 )
KL250-A1A KLR250 (1978)
KL250-A2 KLR250 (1979)
KL250-A3 KLR250 (1980)
KL250-A4 KLR250 (1981)
KL250-A5 KLR250 (1982)
KL250-C1 KLR250 (1983)
KL250-C2 KLR250 (1984)
KLX250-A1 KLX250 (1979) ( KLX-250 / KLX 250 )
KLX250-A2 KLX250 (1980)
KX250-A6 KX250 (1980) ( KX-250 / KX 250 )
KX250-A7 KX250 (1981)
KX250-B1 KX250 (1982)
KX250-C1 KX250 (1983)
KX250-C2 KX250 (1984)
KX250-D1 KX250 (1985)
KX250-D2 KX250 (1986)

I believe these are EMGO brand.


**UPDATE**
I bought one of these for $10 but have never used it.

Another member reports they are cheap, made it Taiwan, and bend rather easy. So fair warning.

**INSTALL UPDATE**
Splines were tight to mount so it was hard to position.
It interferes with pipe some on Tecate, but it is not a show stopper just annoying. It's not rubbing the pipe.
Knuckle is more sized for KX250 kick shaft (why I used it since I could not find my other kicker)
Doesn't interfere with plastic, and neither does your foot if your careful
When kicked down it hits the foot peg spring which is bad news.
Unfortunately dont know if they are even sold anymore.

Seen a couple for sale and they were practically givin them away.

94-98 KX250 Reed and Intake for the 86-87 tecate.


nd4speed

03-05-2009, 07:20 PM

1987-1998 KX250 and 1986-2004 KX500 intake carb boot is angled and is not a direct replacement but they will bolt on and the air box will need to be removed and some type of POD air filter or custom air box must be used on the carb.

(Seems the reeds and cages after 1996 are different, but appear to be the same bolt pattern, so one may be able to upgrade to a modern reed cage and more available style reeds.)

Pictured is Rad Valve for a KX250 with carb and UNI POD filter.


what this also means is the intake bolt pattern is the same for over 2 decades (up to 2004 for sure) for KX250 and KX500 so go buy a modern Vforce reed cage and slap it on there.

UNI POD Filter for those who do not have air box:
If running KX500 / KX250 boot I run UNI UP-4245ST Dual stage 2.5" ID, 4" OD, 4" length. (6 inch length will pass frame by 2").
If running KXT250 straight boot try Dual Layered Angled Pod Filter I.D. 2 ½" - O.D. 4” - LG. 4" Item # UP-4245AST (has 15 degree angled spigot to help clear shock.

84,85 owners will have hard time running angled intake manifold boot off KX250/500 cause frame will be in the way.

There are also single stage UNI POD filters out there but beware some are for snowmobiles and not rated for dirt. So go dual stage if you can unless you are running in winter.

2.5" ID is also for a larger 36-40mm carb, always measure your carb before buying.

Not a KX part, but YFZ 450 ft brake master cyl works beautifully on a '86 t-3. lever feel is excellent, I am super happy with this swap. I got a great used on fee-bay for 25.00 shipped.

i am also using a thumb throttle from a yfz, lovin it too.

Don't forget about banshee petcocks, the holes have to be slightly oblonged, but they are a great solution for a old stocker.

Oh I almost forgot, I am using a ft brake hose from a KFX450 dirt bike, it is about 1/2 inch too short, but is working great.

Thanks for putting out the info for us. I am gearing up to give my T3 some much needed TLC and this stuff is coming in handy for sure. I've read about Banshee, Raptor, 300EX, and 250R rear shocks fitting. Can someone give me some solid info on this as it relates to my 86 T3?

Thanks.

Great thread.

I don't have much to offer that hasn't been already mentioned.

For anyone who may be interested in this, all I can say is for anyone who has an 84/85 that would want to put the front end of an 86/87 on it, it bolts right up. That way the front end is far superior, with better forks, and a taller, skinnier tire for better handling. You will have to make a bracket for the radiator. I see a way to do it using the existing bolts that normally hold the 86 T3 headlight bracket. I will show pics and step by step how I make the bracket when I get it fabbed.

arent the steering stem stops different on the two models forks?
They are different only that they are shaped slightly different and look a little different. They both measure approximately 3.5 inches across. Even with the bigger 85 gas tank on, I have full turning radius all the way until the stops meet, and the fork doesn't hit the tank. In fact, with the 86 front on there, the turning radius actually equals a greater radius, because it is skinnier and thus turns farther because of the physics of it.


So, for all intents and purposes, the stops work just as well, and do their job if the front ends are swapped. I hope that answers your question.

Banshee Petcock for what years of Tecate?

'86-'87, pretty sure it will fit 1'st gen as well.


i used a 2002 kx125 petcock. bolted right up with NO mods.

I like the Banshee one because I wanted to retain the reserve feature. MX petcocks are on-off.


nd4speed

03-24-2009, 02:06 PM

I read a post where a guy put a Banshee rear shock on his LT250R so I believe my assumption about a rear 1985-90 Suzuki LT250R shock working on a Tecate 3 is correct. The shock is like 1.5 inches longer and you could drill the bearing sleeve out to fit the tecate bolt.

**UPDATE** 6/11/2010
Another thread where a guy said the banshee shock is direct bolt on for 1985-1990 LT250R
LT250R shocks are rebuildable and available easily.

The LT shock is longer than both Banshee and T3 though by 1.5" so maybe Banshee is better fit and even more available, guess it depends on the ride.

I hate the look of my 84-85 tecate gas cap, and was looking around the net and found a black billet aluminum one with the vent hose for $29 for a banshee. Checked the cap on the Banshee tank on the tecate tank. Its a perfect fit.
Needless to say I'm ordering one for my Tecate.

You can also make an 84 tecates rear shock compression adjustable by using the kx reservoir with the adjuster on it.

1985 KX125 clutch cable works on a 84-85 Tecate as well. Tried that one at the desert to get my tecate back on the road.

But my tecate has a bassani head pipe and dg silencer. But I am using the same carb. Would it brake the engine in to the stock kx pipe? Change the engine in any way?

nd4speed

04-01-2009, 08:14 PM

What years? and different between what?

The KX motor mounts do not swap on any years of Tecate. (well at least the uppers but pretty sure the fronts do not either)

Also brake brackets are removable and often can be swapped to other brake calipers. WHY don't more people do this!
Example- LT250r rear brake calipers are always bad and consistently sell for $50-60 on ebay. The banshee rear brake caliper is the same as the LT and available everywhere, just a different bracket. Hell, all the big Jap 4 brakes are probably all made by the same Jap company. Just swap the brackets!

Look at the pictures and see the brackets removed? These are all you need. Calipers can be bought new and the bracket added or made. That is why you see them on ebay new for $120. Those people are buying new calipers cheap and making the brackets and putting them together and then jacking up the price for profit. Look at the pictures !!! Why does no one do this ?!!!

Anyone ever try a DRZ110 / KLX110 2002-2004 or 20005-08 +1 extended shifter on their Tecate?

There was one at a local parts store but I need to measure the splined area and overall length. I don't know what makes a difference between the years.

***UPDATE*** Got a 2002-04 KLX / DRZ 110 +1" shifter made by MSR and it would be a perfect replacement if it was about an 1.5" longer.

I have installed the shifter and it's not so bad right now after a ride around the block, but heavier use is needed. I wear a size like 10-11 shoe and I shifted like normal and noticed no problems.

It tucks in tighter and the length is close because of that, if it was bent out like OEM it would be even shorter.

**update 2** BTW I rode with it for a couple hours today. It tucks in close to the bike so my foot had to search to the right to find it.

It lined up with the shift pad on my MX boot and really did not feel unnatural or awkward.

**UPDATE 3*** After using it for awhile I noticed the chain rubs on it a little with a 13 tooth front sprocket. With larger sprocket this could be a problem. Hence why the OEM was made with the flat spot where the chain travels.

(what makes the 05-10 shifter different??? )

A 1986 kx250 motor is exactly the same except the transmission is geared higher right off the crank. All motor parts from 1986 swap and interchange.

You can change the gearing but I really have seen no info on it, but gearing and tire size is your choice.

the small gear on the back of the clutch basket kxf250 17 tooth while kxt250 and kx250 have a 18 tooth gear. Also the big gear on the clutch basket of the T4 is 62t, the T3 56t and the kx 55t. The main drive gear ,off the crank,on the kxt is 18 and kx is 20 tooth. I have done a swap on my kxt clutch basket and crank gear with a kx clutch basket and crank gear and that really woke the kxt right up.

You are on your own with a newer motor.

The KX250 electronics are superior but you can not use a headlight. The electrical systems are generally used as a set.

You can also bolt in a 1985 KX250 motor but the top end porting and power valve setup is different.

I have found a lot of useful info in here. It would certainly be in the best interest of keeping this thread focused if those who had questions started a new thread to find answers to them if they can't be found by using the search function.

Recently I found out radiator caps are easily available at many of your local auto parts stores. I do not know much about the specifics but if you take your rad cap in most likely they will find you one. I thought one would want a 1.6 but maybe a 1.1 is needed. I heard about getting them off small Toyotas and the like. Anyway here is a little info about the subject:

"I just spent some time researching radiator caps for an 03 KX250 and figured I would share my findings here on the forum.

I was able to purchase a replacement cap at Advance Auto parts. Its a Stant part number 11333 or 10333 - both are the same part, just different packaging.

I bought it for $6.89.

The cap also fits several different cars. Here are a few examples.

07 Lexus 470
03 Maxda Protege with 2.0L Turbo

This is a 16psi cap, which is the same as stock. (service manual says 13-18 psi)

I believe the 1.1 number on the stock cap is 1.1 bar = 16.1 psi

So the optional 1.6 bar = 23.2 psi ?? wow that sounds high. Anyone know if thats right?

i have been buying that exact cap since ive been riding, ill never pay motorcycle prices for one of thos dam things, it works fine, just a higher pressure cap, some people get a 1.6 to help keep thier bike from loosing coolant so easy"

Also some members here are making new reproduction and one off parts for Tecates
These include:

Intake boots for 1984-1987 KXT and 1983-1986 KX250 (1986 KX500 if straight?)
Chain sliders 1986-87 KXT and 1983-1986 KX250
Aluminum swingarm guard for rear brake disc and sprocket and aluminum fender supports for all years Tecate 3.
Radiator shrouds 1986-87 KXT.
Gas tank cover/rad shrouds by DC Plastics (warning you have to trim them so they don't interfere with triple tree movement).

They are high quality and most likely better than oem, look for them on ebay or here.

2012 Clarke is now making Tecate gas tanks again. Also a Dc plastics are making rad shrouds. While all the plastics are now OEM discontinued.

1.0 on the cap = 1.0 bar. 1 bar = 14.5 psi, so a 1.6 cap is 23.2 psi hope this helps

Honda sport quad hubs ( 300ex 400ex 450 ) fit 86, and 87 T3's. All you need to do is space out some hubs so the honda hubs don't bottom out where the kawasaki splines finish.

Picture is of an 87 T3 axle fitted with TRX450R alloy extended hubs.

In the photos I have installed 7mm spacers/collars in between where the hub stops and the axle starts.

This theory has often crossed my mind: 1986 KX250 and KX500 stators are the same, 1986 KX500 stator and flywheel can be used on all KX500s 1986-2004, Modern KX250 ignition system (stator, flywheel, cdi, secondary coil, wires) can be used on KX500, therefore modern KX250 (and kx125) can be used on KXT250.

You will need degree wheel and dial indicator set up.

I am not an electrical genius but I really don't think these electrical systems are complicated. You time the spark every 360 degree rotation when piston at X degrees bTDC. As pointed out, line up the 3 marks- flywheel, stator, and on case. Done.

Building a motor and using a crappy old electrical system will cause poor performance.

The proof is found in this discussion of swapping KX500 ignition components:
http://www.kxriders.com/forums/index.php/topic,4929.0.html

Here is an excerpt:
1. "I used the 2001 (KX250) components, with a pro circuit ignition....The bore diameter for the flywheel is the same as the 500

The stator does bolt up but will require it to be positioned differently than the 250 because of where the wires exit the cases and the timing marks being about 180 degrees off.

The stator has to have a minor modification in the pickup coil area as the flywheel sits a bit deeper than the K5 flywheel, and the slots have to be lenghtened to get the right timing, and as said the wires have to be re-routed to come out the top instead of the front of the cases.

On the Kawi it is actually quite easy to adapt, the flywheel has a mark on it, the stator has the 3 timing marks and the case has a timing mark. I think I set mine at 13 degrees btdc, (don't remember exactly, whatever the 500 was) anyway all 3 marks line up and your set."


2. "I have tried the '96/'97 KX125 complete ignition on my 500 hillclimber."


3. "In my k5 tecate i wanted lighting, so somewhere years back i read in one the dirtbike mags about the staff running a kx500 in a desert race using a tecate-3 stator and flywheel. Other than they had to modify the slots in the stator plate to allow correct timing indexing it was a pretty straight up deal. this stuck in my head all these years and now i find myself with a ricky stator stator setup and tec-3 cdi on the desk in front of me. Now the biggest trailprotrailprotrailprotrailprotrailpro of this so far is the fact that the tecate cdi's have been discontinued, so i had to hunt that down on ebay :S
while pouring through my bike manual for the 500 i noticed that a few of the year use a 3-wire stator just like the tec 3 *lightbulb!* i made up a little diagram of the basic ignition circut that i have setup along with the wire colors and where they go inside the stator as well as in the rest of the harness. (which hopefully posts) now what i would like some help on is some kinda picture or good clear drawing of anyone out there with a 3 wire stator k5 like the '89 models were to compare the wire colors and relative coil connections against. i think it very possible to use a k5 cdi along with the tec-3 stator and flywheel, (which by the way ricky stator offer both the flywheels and stators as new for 125 a piece)
Decent lighting and still retain the 500's advance curve and timing all for under 300. sounds like a good idea to me Smiley

ohh in my little copy/paste diagram i made, my lighting coil was designed to go into a rectifier/regulator and then into a battery and those are the yellow wirres leading out of the stator."

HERE is article on using KDX200 harness, headlight /tail light on modified KX500 stator for KX500 motor

Most of my oil fill caps / plugs for the clutch cover have been twisted in half. I would get an OEM one of all rubber since there is no oil splash guard in the clutch cover.

These plugs are all the same:

All Tecates 3 (4) and

KAWASAKI KX 60/65 80/85 1983 - 2009

KAWASAKI KX 125 / 250 1984 - 2004

KX500 1986-2004

# CR125/250/450/500 87-07
# CRF450 02-07
# YZ/YZF80/85125/250/426/450 ALL
# RM65 ALL

Or if you would like a colored anodized aluminum one many companies like Magnum make them.

Axle bearings 40x68x15 (same as LT250R) with carrier seals as:
Left- 40x62x9

swingarm bearings and collars are the same as the upper suspension linkage bearings and collars.

lt250r axle bearings are cheaper than 86 tecate axle bearings. and there the same parts. kinda odd. lt230, and t4 axle bearings also fit.

upper shock spherical bearing can be replaced with a much cheaper neeled bearing. bearing number NA4900 UU $5 off ebay. you just have to use the stock bearing spacers and seals. fits perfect. will also fit the 84-85 t3 and the t4's

lt250r, lt500r swingarm bolts fit the 86 tecates, and should work on the 84-85's. or you can pm yamahondaman for a nice stainless one.

lt250r master cylinder rebuild kits fit the front and rear master cylinders on the 86 tecate. just get the front for front and rear for rear.

I was beginning to wonder about fork bushings for all years and for KX250.

Any one else have any input on fork bushings? (besides below)

1985 KXT FORK BUSHINGS:

The oem fork bushings are discontinued through kawasaki. But... since these forks are nearly identical to the 1982-83 Yamaha yz 100, the bushings are exact replacements. Yz units are longer and have a bit more travel, but the components in leg are same. Even the oem yz fork seals and dust caps are better quality imo.......Kyb was the supplier for both machines, so this allows me to rebush all of my 85 kxt forks thanks to Yamaha still carrying replacement wear items.

For 1986 T3 i have:

Fork seals 41x53x10.5 Yamaha part number 775519

Suspension linkage bearing, seal, collar same as swingarm pivot???
Swingarm bearings TA2030 also found in:
Mojave
T4
KEF300 Lakota
KX250 86-91
KX500 83-04


Axle bearings 40x68x15 (same as LT250R) with carrier seals as:

I went to the yamaha dealer to order these fork seals. They told me the part number was invalid??

The 86/87 KXT alu swing arm is basically a direct swap out to the 84/85 steel swing arm. You will need to have the shock mount repositioned and welded to center it. You will use all your 84/85 parts on the 86/87 alu swinger IF you don't extend the swinger any longer ~ if you do exstend I used a 85/86 ATC 250R rear brake line since stock for stock the 85/86 250R has a 4 inch longer swing arm then the stock 84/85 T-3.
Stock for stock the 86/87 swinger is 2 inches longer and around 15 pounds lighter.
I extended the alu swinger 4 more inches giving me a total of 6 inch over stock length. I also cut out alot of extra alu out of the 86/87 swinger since it was way over built IMO.

Sorry about that, I had my forks rebuilt by someone else who ordered the seals and i asked him what they were and he said Yamaha and gave me that number. I removed the reference to the number.

This fork seals (2) fit these models. HONDA 81 CR250R / CR450R . KAWASAKI 82 KX125 , 86-87 KXT250 / 250 TECATE . YAMAHA 84 THRU 96 XT600 , 90-91 XT600E.

Fork seals 41x53x10.5 ( If you order them from YAMAHA just ask fork seals for XT600 with part number: 3SP23145-LO they are the same :) )


for the bearings just go to a local bearing dealer and order them, thats what i did! You pay less without a loss in the quality!!!
( SKF,KOYO, FAG ) for me are top quality brands.

I read through here and theres a chance I missed it. Is the bolt pattern the same on the head on the t-4 vs the 86/7 t-3? Ive never had the chance to see them side by side. I know the other motor parts dont interchange but I figured if the bolt patten, channels, and dome centering were the same than it may work.

I believe the 70mm stock bore of the 86-87 T3 is larger than the 87-88 KXF250 and therefore the 3 wheeler head was often used for T4 big bore kits. Keep in mind the head dome and squish band size must match the piston/bore size. Other than that they do swap.

Is there A huge difference between the master cylinder for a 85 KX250 and a 85 Tecate master cylinder? The rebuild kit for that one is like $16 Not sure if I can use it for the rear master cylinder on my Tecate. Thought maybe the one on the tecate would be different regarding it's capacity to need to stop 2 baloon tires as opposed to one skinny tire. On Dennis Kirk they have the "Part # fits these machines" and I've noticed they seem to leave the Tecate 3 off the lists A lot but have A million other models listed logic tells me some of these parts should fit, reeks of conspiracy imo.

lt250r/ lt500r rear master cylinder rebuild kits fit the rear 86 tecate rear master cylinder. the lt250r/lt500r front rebuild kits also fit the front t3 master cylinder. i rebuilt both of my master cylinders with them. include the seals spring piston and outer dust cover. i posted it on this thread awhile back.

Potential rear sprockets for 1986-87 Tecate?

Basically all Ducati bikes have the same bolt pattern but the bolt holes are tapered and 10.5mm which is 2.25mm too big. Maybe you can get special bolts made easier? Or turn down the Ducati bolts and use a die to make your own thread??

JT sprockets
JTR 735

Just a thought.

Close enough? drill out holes?

Gents KFX450 rear swingarms. There is a heap on ebay, has anyone measured one up to fit an 86/87 Tecate?

The end that goes towards the engine has the same open area that Tecates have. at top mount towards the centre, like Tecates have. And they look like they may even be longer than a Tecate swingarm. I suspect that with a little bit of machine work, those swingers could easily be made to fit into a tecate.

Another person has put a T4 KXF250 axle on an 86 T3:
http://www.3wheelerworld.com/showthread.php?109961-First-Full-Build-86-Tecate/page3

"I finally got the rear axle together. I ended up using the T4 sprocket hub, the T3 brake rotor hub and the original washer that goes between the lock nuts on the T3 axle inside of the Durablue Posi-Loc nut. I didn't have to cut spline or snap ring grooves, or anything :-). (Even though I did recut the sprocket snap ring groove for no reason due to poor alignment during a trial fit.) So, everything bolted up using the stock parts. I thought the sprocket alignment was going to be an issue, but after looking again, the T4 bolts the sprocket on the inside of the hub, and the T3 bolts it on the outside, so the difference is actually minimal, and a washer or small shim should take care of the difference. "

Connecting rod kit (Hotrods) for 1978-2007 KX250 will work for all years of the Tecate 84-87.

nd4speed. You're awesome for making this thread. i remember enjoying it when it first unfolded. Now i have a question that maybe someone could help me with.

I am putting an 86 swing arm on my 85 T3. Now that the swinger is 2 inches longer, my brake line is too short. I don't know if the brake line fittings are universal or not. So, can i just go to, say, the local Honda shop and get a brake line that is the correct length and will it work? Or do i need to buy a brake line for an 86/87 T3 for proper length? Are those even still available? Or, what is interchangeable. I assume it isn't too hard to find a line that will work because I know there are several people out there that make this swing arm swap. thanks for any help.

I'm about 90% positive that the banjo fittings on either end of a rear brake line are the same, be it Honda or Kawasaki. I think a 86-87 Tecate rear brake line would work fine. Both of my tecates with extended swingarms have the extended braided rear lines, but I wouldn't have the foggiest idea where you could pick one up these days.

I just went to my local dirtbike junk yard and got a rear brake hose from a dirtbike when I extended the swinger on my 85 Rob. I'm pretty sure most bikes/trikes/quads use the same size banjo fitting for the most part.

1993 KX125 rear master cylinder is a bolt on for the 84-85 Tecate. A longer reservoir hose will need to be used for the reservoir to go in the stock position. The reservoir is smaller and rectangular which will keep your foot from hitting it while kickstarting. The stock rear brake hose will bolt up fine. Here are some pics.

I was the one that originaly gave the tip about the banshee petcock. On the 84-85 you just turn it around so the lever is facing towards the motor. Or if you are handy with machining you can put the brass fitting in the downward or other side outlet and block the orignal side off. There is guy that sometimes pops up on ebay and sells them modified in the downward position, wants like $80 for them though.


Just so its clear. 84-85 Tecate, a Banshee petcock will work just fine and you do not need to install it backwords. 86-87 it will not work at all with a airbox. Or just buy the Yamaha 2HR-24500-02 petcock with the down spout and it will work with all years.

Just about any 36-40mm carb should bolt on. Look for other peoples pictures.

The T4 engine is not the same the T3 engine (it is not a direct swap)

KXT250-A2 (Tecate) (1985)
KXT250-B1 (Tecate) (1986)
KXT250-B2 (Tecate) (1987)

So, to take a 1985-1986 KX250 motor and make it have gearing similar to the Tecate, you need this 18 tooth primary gear and a Tecate Clutch Basket and possibly the kick start idler gear.

partzilla claims they have them for $12.00


the ta does not mean tapered bearings . . no mfg uses tapered bearings for swing arms . . those are for automotive wheel bearings and steering stem bearing upgrade from all balls etc.

ta series are small diameter rollers . . hk are larger diameter rollers.

There is no cross reference for a ta bearing . . if you need a ta bearing you must buy a ta bearing.

They are both drawn cup type bearings meaning they have an external shell/housing unlike a piston needle bearing which does not.

I notice one this info the rod parts appear to be the same for 1974-1997 even though Kawasaki says the rod kit doesn't. Does Rod rebuild kit work for all Kx250 1978-1997-2004? The KX250 70mm piston was 1978-1986. So the bore and stroke changed in 1987 on KX250 and on KFX250 Tecate 4. So are rods different lengths or is it just the piston pin location is different to change the stroke?

Found out another fuel petcock that worked very slick. Fit perfect and took about 5 minutes to install. Nearly the same as the banshee (2GU) and 400 bigbear (2HR). It's a big bear 250, 3JN (-24500-02. All have same last 7 digits). It has a outflow to the front. Stuck it on today and really like it. Oh, and it's the cheapest for some reason- $16.95 + $2.75 shipping. Banshee at my dealership here was $36 and a week and a half out, ridiculous, got this one in 3 days for half the price, & the same thing.

Is the 86 4-156 also? DO a search for 4-156 on E-bay and a ton of different wheel spacers will pop up.. Alot of quads (yamaha) us the 4-156 bolt pattern on the front.

Or did I misunderstand the question? lol...

I just never got around to it. They will be scarse till we find a source. Ill pm you my address. If you will send it to me i'll see if I can get some made for members in need.

No problem. You should of snagged the ones Ronnie made. Everything was made of stainless. Beautiful.

Anyway...I've got your address and I'll get it out ASAP. It's got some seal wear on it but you'll easily be able to have a local machine shop punch out a few. Grade school stuff when it comes to machining. In fact...you might want to check with your local middle school, high school or vocational school. Be a good learning experiance for the beginners in metal shop and they usually don't charge much. easy CNC stuff.

Just a thought.

1985 KLF185 quad rear hubs are 13 splined and have a 4/110 hub spacing. These fit on the 84-85 Tecate rear axle. The 87 KLF185 rear hubs are 4/110 as well but look to be splined for the 86-87 Tecate rear axle.

So I just went on ebay and you are right the spines are finer on the 87 hubs .Funny thing is all these ebay seller are selling these hubs 1 by 1 ? They are not giving them away by any means either ! even more funny is the klf 185 "87" hubs they are selling for half the price as the 85 hubs . So basiacly you are looking at almost $100.00 to do this . I figured they would have those hubs for sale for like $10.00 ,I was surprised to see the prices . Can the Tecate guys ever catch a break? :wondering

A month or 2 ago there was a few pairs listed with buy it nows for about $10 + $10 shipping. There is an 87 klf hub for $20 w/ $9 in shipping. There's a Nos 85 klf hub for $50 too. These hubs can't be worth $50 a piece used because the klf's barely sell for anything as it is, I'm sure as the spring time comes there'll be more of them for sale at a price worth paying.

So if I am understanding correctly the 86 KX250 Brake calipers are a direct bolt on for the 86 KXT250? Just wondering because I need some brakes on my 86 project. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

the calipers are the same, the bracket that holds them is different...

86 tecate front and rear are the same bracket and caliper, also the same on the 87 front but different rear...

Well I was looking at some front calipers today and found the 86 KX250 caliper brackets mentioned are different bolt pattern.
Is the bracket made of hardened steel?

The rear master looks similar and bolt pattern looks the same as other bikes.

49030-1065 rear hubs for 1985 KLF185 are only for 1985 and are discontinued

Makes me wonder about the splines for 1986 Tecate and KLF185 and so on.......this may mean al Bayou 220/250 and Brute Force and Prairie 700 cause I see a thread about 400ex for the P700.

Oh well, lots of honda hubs around anyway.

Acerbis Front Auxiliary Fuel Tanks 1.3 Gallon - White on ebay, Since the 86/7 came with a "short track tank" from the factory and the 250r was able to hold about .5 0r a gallon of gas more. The acerbis tank would be something to look into for the 86/7's as well as the 500's. It looks like a numberplate, but still serves a good purpose.

do you have a link?

Sorry, but that is the one thing that I haven't figured out how to do on this site. If you type in acerbis auxilliary tank on ebay, you'll find about 8 new ones(all white in color, but I think it will still flow with the Tecate's color scheme). They go for about the same amount as a repro Atc number plate, but at least this has a use and a look factor as opposed to just the look of a # plate.

Sorry, but it's the one that mounts in front of the tripple trees, if you look in the seller's other items, you'll find it. Thanks for the advice on how to post links.

I fail to see what this has to do with Tecate parts swapping.

I fail to see what this has to do with Tecate parts swapping.

The title of the thread says kxt250 Tecate 3 what parts Fit Swap Interchange?

The last 3 words don't have commas between them, but the Acerbis auxilliary tank would be a part that Fits(it's universal and will fit anything with tripple trees). I just figured that I would mention it here because the 86/7 tank only holds about 2 gallons or so and rather than seeing someone try and replace the gas tank with another one. It would ruin the look of the machine and there really isn't a tank that could be made to work without some serious frame mods. I had plans on building an aluminum gas tank, but it isn't possible to make it any larger than the stock one with the room given. This would be a better route, especially if someone were to have a kx 500 86/7 tecate.

fabio is right, it has nothing to do with parts swapping but is an interesting option I will be looking into.

I may have posted this up in one of the previouse 14 pages of postings, maybe,,,
alot of folks think these things are discontinuded. They ain't. Just use this updated parts number when talking to your Kawi dealer.
Can't recall price off hand but remember it only stung a little bit :)

Are you seriously telling me that the Tecate gas tank isin't big enough? I've never come close to running my tank out when other guys on their honda's are pouring in gatoraide bottles of fuel and still running low I pull in with half a tank left.

Has anybody ever compared the front motor mounts from a 86 kx250 to an 86 Tecate? By the pictures they look similar. It is the mounts circled "A" in the diagram. Part 32029.

http://s3.amazonaws.com/www.cheapcycleparts.com/images/manual/production/assembly_images/65388/large/50031.png?1336692040

The actual p/n is 32029-1438 and has been discontinued but its KX counterpart is still available. On the set I have, both plates have cracks so I'm looking for a replacement pair.

I dug out what I believe are 1986 Kx250 front motor mounts and compared to 86 T3.

Kx250 f. mounts have no hole in center and the bolt pattern is smaller than the T3 which means you would need to slot them towards the outside edges of the parts. This would create a thinner, weaker wall thickness. The bend of the KX f. mount matched the T3 when the mounts were stacked on top of each other.

One of the KX250 mounts I looked at was broken around a bolt hole. I held the mount to my KX frame and it seemed to be the right mount (because I had a 1984 KX).

i am suurprised if I forgot to add this to my tecate swap thread, but I put like a 1996 KX250 case saver on my 86 KX250. So KX500 1986-2004 all had the same bolt pattern for the case saver, which basically means tons KX250/500 case savers are out there. You can see Chaplin Kawasaki try to peddle them on ebay for KXT at a jacked up rate of course. They are grey with three holes in them, but keep in mind that is the plastic part, there is a metal spacer part that is to me the real case saver. That spacer can be used to save your case but leave you room to remove the front sprocket.
I think difference in chain guide has to do with stock oem sprocket size.

A couple of things I found while working on my 85 Tecate projects I could not find info about in this thread:

Tail Light and bracket:
Many Kawasaki trikes and some quads from the 80's use the same tail light and bracket. This is the eBay search string I use:
(klf110,klf 110,klt110,klt 110,klt160,klt 160,klt185,klt 185,klt250,klt 250,kxt250,kxt 250,tecate,prairie,mojave)

The tail light without the bracket is used on even more. This is the eBay search string I use:
(klf110,klf 110,klt110,klt 110,klt160,klt 160,klt185,klt 185,klt250,klt 250,kef300,kef 300,klf220,klf 220,klf300,klf 300,ksf250,ksf 250,kvf300,kvf 300,kvf400,kvf 400,kxt250,kxt 250,tecate,bayou,lakota,prairie,mojave)

The rubber gas tank retention strap is the same as a bunch of old Kawasakis and is reproduced although you can get them for like $10. I just search for the Kawasaki part number: 92072-042
For some reason, 2 of my 3 trikes did not have these straps. I was able to get 2 shipped to me for lke $12.

Just saw a picture of a banshee shock on 84/85 Tecate. Rezzie was at bottom. Shock is a bit sorter like half inch though. The owner liked the ride of the shock. Banshee shock fits on LT250R so I still think LT250R shock is option for all years.

Someone had mentioned a replacement for the rear master cylinder earlier, I used one from my 01 kx250 parts bike and it required just a little modification. The stock reservoir was broke and the kx has a smaller one which is further out of the way of the kicker you'll just have to check the level maybe a bit more often. The kx uses 6mm bolts so I drilled em out and tapped them to 8 x 1.25 the tecate uses and I used the pushrod and clevis from the tecate as well since it is longer and necessary because I had to slot the mounting plate holes just a bit so the peddle would come up to a comfortable level but it works great and was an easy swap

Well some KX500 riders are saying the weak small spring pushing together the ratchet gears is why the kickstart gear slips and the slipping causes the gear damage.

Solution 1 was add another washer to push the spring harder or of course coming up with a strong spring.

Having the right washers in the assembly stack or even adding more to the stack.

Cutting back gears if needed but they may be surface hardened???

Kick starter will not always engage when engine is cold. If I lean the bike to the right and pull slightly on the kick start shaft it will usually engage. Once the bike starts and warms up a little no problems after that. Kick starter engages every time.

I had the exact same problem with my 500 when I bought it...once it was warmed up, it was fine.
It was the ratchet spring that was the problem...they're a fine wire spring and get weak over time.
Get the correct part #...and they're under $10.

There was also talk of KX250 engine parts were not changed much from 89-2004 for sure and the changes were minor and all versions are compatible.

trailpros happens... the 3. gear of the ´87 is now for the scrap man ... same problem like on the ´83 kx250 2 years ago ...
First i fixed the transmission of my 87-motor . A snap ring was out of direction. gears still looking like new. so i replaced all snap rings and washers..

KX 250 Transmission Gears and forks are matching from ´83-´89 only the shafts were changed in 85 and 88 ...

Supposed KX250 Factory Race works crank?
190711

Much to learn and now i know quite every part that was mounted on the kx 2stroke 250 and 500 between 1983 and 2008 ... and you would be stunned to learn that a little handful parts in the last kx250 in 2008 were unchanged since 1978...

Kawi didn't change things unless they could make it worth while. Look at the kx500 1988 they found a frame and ergos that carried the bike until 04, 89-04 KX500 engines stayed the same except for a few minor parts that can be adapted to fit all those years, They used the "K.I.S.S." and "if it ain't broke don't fix it" mottos lol

Hi All,

Just one of my options right now since parts are hard to find.

I'm adding up the cost to fix the motor and it's coming close to the price of a good used 2000 kx motor I found.

So how much moding do I need to do to get it to fit?

dinky,

thats definetely a job for the advanced kx-wrencher!... smiley

the 2000 engine fits to the 87 lower motormounts, but its still a lot of modifying the 87 use 8mm motorbolts and 15mm swingarm-bolt . the 2000 engine has 10mm boltholes and 17mm swingarm-bolt...
last year i had a 96 engine in my 87 frame... you need a completed modifyed pipe , bolt-on-headstay or a 2003/04 cylinderhead, handmade-bushings everywhere for the motormounts and swingarm-bolt...handmade brackets for the headstay...
here you can take a look at it: http://der-motopunk.de.tl/projekt-evo_racer-kx250E1-.htm

if i where you, i would rebuild the 87 engine or try to get an good used 88-91 engine. that would make some things easier for the engine swap...
second option: you can try to fit the 2000 crank and cylinder to the 87 motor-bottom, but also not as easy as it sounds in first...

So it seems the 1990-94 KDX250 is a direct bolt on motor swap for the 1986/87 Tecate. Sprockets, swingarm bolt, and Motor mounts line up except the front need spacers and the upper motor mounts always need to be fabricated or modded.

This also means many other KX250 motors fit directly in this frame as mentioned like 3 posts above this one.

Bushing fit, but they don't. Some modification needed


A slight hiccup. The Race Tech bushings are a tiny bit thicker than stock. They fit perfectly in the lower tube by themselves and fit the upper, but with a gap. The old stock bushing was almost touching itself. My idea is to reduce the overall diameter of the recess for the bushing, thus closing the gap and allowing the bushing on the inner pipe to go in the lower fork tube. I'm guessing a few thousandths if that...

Only difference is the hub doesn't slide on all the way as the axle splines stop and there is about a 1/4-1/2 inch gap from hubs hitting the stop point on the axle. Also on area where the nut goes on the hub sticks out about a 1/4 inch from where the splines stop. 192988192987

YT175 source coil fits the stator plate ever so slight modification. Maybe 1-2mm griding on the bolt holes to move it inwards and some grinding on the iron part of the coil to shape it correctly.

It's 270-330 ohms, quite a bit higher than the tecates 198-250. With that being said, it should be more potent on the spark. I'm going to give it a shot and let you guys know. I've got 2 spare CDI's, and knowing all the others that fit...

yt125/175 source coil may not put enough power out. I'm getting spark, but not a really hot spark. Not hot enough to fire. Could be ignition coil. I'll have to take 1 off the blaster to test it out.

EDIT!! I have lost magnetism on a flywheel magnet. No coil sparks well. The yt has done the best so far.. Better than my stock at 192ohms on the source coil.

I installed a moose case saver for 2003-2004 KX250 on my 1986 T3 so like 1985-2004 KX250 case savers fit all years tecate.
(the bolts included from moose were too long)

Now the moose KX250 chain guard case saver did not look like it would allow anything larger than the 13 tooth counter front sprocket.

The KX500 case saver may be the way to go if you plan to run larger than stock front sprocket.

I wonder if the KLR 650 brake parts will fit on the Tecate... If so, there's numerous huge brake upgrades for KLR650's that would make a Tecate front flip from level ground!

The Caliper itself is the same, But the mounting bracket is different.
so unless you can use the T3 mounting brackets on the upgrade I dont know.

Thank you for taking the time and money to give this a shot. There are probably a lot of calipers out there that will fit but sometimes it takes trial and error.

I put an 86 KX250 dog bone on my 85 T3, just needed to use some washers as spacers because the 84/85 dog bones were wider.

I had a chance to compare an original 86 kx 250 connecting rod against the kxt250 connecting rod kit # 13044-5042

I like KDXs, always have done. It was the bike that got me into racing. I had an air-cooled 1988 C3. I loved that bike and rode the bejeezus out of it. That was 25 years ago. So a few years ago I bought a rough ’87 KDX C2 and ended up keeping the engine for a rainy day. It’s as advanced as air cooled two stroke dirtbike motors got: Nikasil bore, reed valve and KIPS power valve and wide ratio 6 speed. It’s basically a mid eighties KX125 bottom end with the bigger enduro tuned cylinder. All in all, a really fun engine. The early KIPS is abrupt and the power kicks in hard, but there’s not enough power to make it unpleasant. And reliable as hell. I remember Jeff Fredette getting a Gold at the ISDE on one of these things! Anyway, I thought I’d hold onto this thing and wait for a nicer chassis to put it in.

That’s when I got the hankering to build something with modern suspension and disc brakes, something that could run with current bikes.

I’d read that the 1986 KX125 was almost a straight ‘bolt in’ conversion. That bike had the first year of Kawasaki’s rear disc brake and modern linkage rear end. The geometry of the frame (rake, trail and wheelbase) was almost identical to a first gen KX250F, so a good start point.

DSCF1214.jpg

I found an ’86 KX125 frame, subframe, swingarm and shock and had a play around. Everything lined up apart from the bottom rail brackets. So I cut them off, along with all the other surplus brackets.

I did a bit of poking round and researched the best conventional forks (keeping with the spirit of the bike). On went a pair of twin chamber 49mm Showa conventionals from a 1998 RM125 (rebuilt and re-valved by Greg Morrison at Pro Ride) and the matching RM front wheel, connected to the frame by a set of billet Applied Racing clamps. Tjebbe Bruin machined a new stem to match the frame. Then came a piggyback shock off a 1987 KX125. That was shortened by Greg to fit the ’86 layout. Things were starting to come together.

Kx 200 1.jpg

I wanted to use plastics that were going to be more easily available, due to my likelihood of breaking them. This meant mounting the subframe and airbox/seat from an ’89 KX125, so that I could use the side panels from the later KXs and KDXs. Jeff from RAW Developments built mounts for the frame to take the engine, subframe, seat and tank.

The next part of the puzzle was the tank. The later subframe and seat meant that this would have to be a custom made job. I mocked one up out of cardboard then got it constructed from 2mm aluminium sheet by Dane at Accurate Sheet Metals.

IMG_5393.jpgIMG_5392.jpg

The wheels were re-spoked by Tom Morris at Wheel & Spoke Services and a new FMF Gold Series exhaust (KDX ’87) and an FMF silencer (’89 KDX) was sourced on Ebay. There was a load of finishing off which took a few weeks – sandblasting, anodising and nickel plating all the bits. And buying lots of small items that didn’t come with the bike. I rebuilt the brake masters and calipers, using new braided stainless hoses. I found a nearly new Keihin PWK Air Striker on Ebay and we were nearly ready. With all the tabs in the right place the bike bolted back together in a few hours, and was ready for a bit of a shake down.

It started third kick, the distinctive ping ping of the finned two stroke filling the night air. I brought the kids and dog out to watch. OK, it was a real running bike now…

So how did it go?

It took a while to get the jetting dialled in. The ballpark jetting was way too rich. I was doing plug chops up and down a straight 2km road in the country, away from non two stroke loving ears (it’s an acquired taste right?). I went a bit too far the other way, nearly seizing it on wide open throttle. This day brought up the first proper flaw in the bike’s new design. Because of the compactness of the frame, the carb couldn’t be turned to get at the jetting – there was no way of taking the top off or the float bowl without pulling the carb off the manifold and out of the airbox boot. Trying to put it back in was a rage inducing knuckle-shredding experience that almost caused me to take my boot to my newborn creation. I got there in the end. Literally the end of the day. After 5 jetting tweaks I decided enough was enough…it was close enough to hit the trails the following week.

Kawasaki has a good thing going with their KDX 200, a motorcycle they humbly refer to as "the greatest trailbike ever made." But what do you do for an encore when your bike is already considered to be the standard by which all others are judged?

A lack of significant changes can result in a loss of sales as buyers flock to what's new from other manufacturers, but even worse is change for change's sake that results in an inferior product.

Kawasaki solved this dilemma by introducing the new KDX220R while still keeping the venerable 200 in the line up for those loyal to that machine. Clearly the powers at Kawasaki were cautious of alienating faithful customers with a "New Coke" version of their famous enduro.

We had a chance to test both bikes back to back along with the new KLX300R which replaces last year's KLX250, at Kawasaki's ride introduction. The three day event took place in a tiny mining town nestled deep within the beautiful mountain ranges of central Idaho. Scenery was stunning with views rivaling Switzerland and Austria's best. Sorry, but we're keeping the place a secret as some things are better left undiscovered. Temperature was the only downside to this spectacular locale as the mercury dropped to a bone-numbing thirty degrees in the morning and only mustered fifty-five during the afternoon.

Kawasaki pulled out all the stops to make sure the test bikes were properly presented to the press. The Team Green crew, complete with their eighteen wheeled rolling workshop, had a fleet of KLX's and KDX's gassed up and ready to go upon our arrival. Off-road heroes Ty Davis (two time ISDE top American), and Larry Roeseler (winningest off-road rider to date) were on hand to guide the group, lend their expertise and do what they do best for the cameras.

Over the next three days we rode all three models in a variety of conditions. The trails were primarily single track loops joined by tracts of dust, mud, technical rocky sections, rutted switchbacks, trees, logs and considerable snow in the higher elevations.

Having personally owned nearly a half dozen KDX models over the years I was anxious to climb aboard the new 220R to see what happens to "the world's greatest trailbike" when it is improved.

KDX220R

This year's all new 220R has generated a great deal of excitement amongst KDX diehards everywhere. Kawasaki claims that the 220R "bridges the gap" between riders who feel a 200cc machine might be underpowered, but consider a 250cc bike to be too much motorcycle. Both KDX models share an identical chassis with the only differences being the motor and carb.

Kawasaki is presenting the 220R as the more race-worthy version of the KDX family because of its engine modifications. The 220R comes on strong off the bottom and builds smoothly until it's time to shift. However compared to the 200 it seems to run out of steam quickly, almost as if it's being held back. These type of power characteristics make the bike more suitable for trail riding than serious competition. Maybe the altitude played with our best judgement but the smaller 200 seems capable of generating power more rapidly and for a longer duration than the 220R. Without a Dyno run we can't be sure but a quick dissection of Kawasaki's new lime green Frankenstein might shed some light.

It's rumored that the 220 engine is borrowed directly from a domestic (Japanese) dual purpose unit. While the motor is virtually identical to the 200 there are a few subtle differences which no doubt contribute to the 220R's tamer disposition. The cylinder bore is three millimeters larger yielding an overall displacement of 216 cubic centimeters as opposed to the 200's 198 cubic centimeters. This looks like we're on the right track, however, from here things go awry. Strangely, a carburetor that is a full two millimeters smaller (PWK33) than the 200's provides the intake mixture. While theoretically this would create improved low end response one would assume bumping the displacement and leaving all things constant would accomplish the same end.

Kawasaki engineers cooked up further changes in their cauldron. At idle both models report almost identical compression ratios but as rpm builds the 200 comes out .7:1 higher. On the 220R both the transfer and exhaust port timing has been ever so lightly tinkered with to produce smoother, more tractable power. We would be interested to see the results of a carb swap but time did not permit this.

We're looking forward to reviewing a 220R for an extended period of time but at this zero hour we're hard pressed to recommend one model over the other. Both KDX's are very good and very similar. With the 200 retailing a full $250 less it's difficult justifying the purchase of a 220R for racing purposes. It makes more sense to buy a 200 and spend the savings on an aftermarket 240cc kit, a pipe and maybe a port job. At least you'll be starting out with a larger carburetor.

KDX200

Kawasaki's KDX200 has experienced a strong following since its inception in 1983 and the latest perimeter steel frame version (H model)is probably the best ever.

While the only noteworthy refinement is the addition of 10% stronger clutch springs the little 200 is still a very competitive mount, both on the showroom floor as well as the trail.

A suggested retail price of just $4,299 makes the KDX a very attractive package indeed.

KLX300R

Frankly, we did not expect any significant revelations from a motorcycle who's powerplant is based on last year's borderline-anemic KLX250. But after having ridden the package it's hard not to be excited about what we discovered. Kawasaki has come up with a combination of engine and component modifications that have made notable improvements in power and handling.

Displacement was increased by boring the cylinder an additional six millimeters to bring total size to 292cc. A Keihin CVK34 (Constant Velocity) carburetor is fitted and performed without hesitation or error during our evaluation although we did experience some minor backfiring during high speed runs when the throttle was abruptly chopped. This did not seem to affect performance, although it did scare off nearby wildlife.

Starting the bike hot or cold is easy thanks to Kawasaki's Automatic Compression Release (KACR) system while last year's rough idling has been eliminated by advancing the ignition five degrees. Modifications were also made to fifth and sixth gears to improve transmission performance while attempting to reduce overall gear noise.

However, during our test the KLX jumped out of gear on two separate occasions, both while under load. This problem wasn't unique to our bike either as several members of the press were able to duplicate this condition.

Kawasaki is aware of the problem and says it will be fixed. Smaller detail changes include a repositioned oil filter for easier access and larger radiator shrouds that are fastened via a plastic "pop-in" tab rather than the traditional bolt-on design. One rider managed to pop one out during a crash but the piece was undamaged and quickly snapped back into place. Very nice.

Front forks are 43mm upside-down cartridge units with 16-way adjustable compression damping. A rear shock with piggyback reservoir and 16 compression and rebound damping adjustments rides on Kawasaki's patented Uni-Trak linkage system. Kawasaki claims that both front and rear suspension spring rates have been slightly increased to suit faster riders. With stock settings at both ends the suspension did a good job of keeping the machine on its intended course and only a few unexpected drop-offs and some large jumps resulted in light bottoming.

The plastic engine coolant reservoir shares the same under-the-seat left side positioning as older KDX models. It's easily accessible, or rather would be if the KLX came with a toolbag like it's KDX cousin. In the event that the KLX requires any sort of trailside maintenance necessitating tools you're out of luck. Although there's plenty of room on the rear fender you'll have to shell out the extra cash for a KDX or aftermarket toolbag in order to enjoy the comfort of having tools.

The KLX's exhaust canister has a removable baffle assembly for competition riding. While this does not compromise the function of the mechanical spark arrestor it does, obviously, result in a louder exhaust note that might be offensive in some parts of the world. Sound levels were not overly obnoxious in the wide open areas we traversed but you should use your own judgment based on the situation.

Both front and rear brakes are the same as last years KX250 and are very capable of hauling the bike down from speed. We were less pleased with the routing of the front brake line which hangs below the front left fork leg inviting possible failure in the event of a severe enough hit. While we did not experience any troubles we would anxiously keep an eye on this.

The KLX has .8 inches less ground clearance than the KDX although its seat is .2 inches taller. Despite the numbers, riding the KLX gives the pilot an impression of sitting very close to the ground with ergonomics reminiscent of the older KDX175, albeit superior in design. Whether it's the seat's slimness or perhaps the positioning of the low footpeg, the layout works well as the KLX inspired confidence in nasty mud and snow-covered terrain. It is a very easy bike to ride and worked well in technical situations that required frequent touching down to stay upright.

With a claimed weight of only 231.5 pounds dry the KLX weighs just 8.5 pounds more than both KDX200's and a full 25.5 pounds less than the 1997 Honda XR400R. Having ridden both machines it's clear that Kawasaki has jumped into the ring with a viable open class contender that can go head-to-head with the XR. Perhaps putting the KLX over the top is that performance gains are easily achieved by installing a steel sleeve and 340cc piston. Larry Roeseler (714-528-1448) claims 375cc is attainable with a bored and stroked motor which, with a different carburetor, would give much more horsepower.

As mentioned earlier both KDX models are identical in every way except for their engines. Both share the same steel perimeter frame based on the KX125 and 250 designs. Both are fitted with conventional 43mm cartridge forks, with 16-way compression damping, and a nitrogen-filled aluminum body rear shock. The rear unit supports 16-way compression and rebound damping as well as a spring pre-load adjustment and uses a remote reservoir to avoid shock overheating. Stock suspension settings produced some rear wheel hop and some front end deflection but worked quite well overall.

"Kawasaki should be applauded for their continuing efforts to produce high quality two-stroke motorcycles for recreational off-road enthusiasts -- an off-road segment that is under heavy scrutiny due to ever-tightening emission regulations."

All three models mentioned here utilize a special Electrofusion cylinder bore. This is a process that leaves a porous hard coating of molybdenum and steel permanently secured to an aluminum bore by using high voltage during manufacture. While such cylinders can't be bored in the same manner as steel units the benefits of the design are a resistance to wear and the ability to transfer heat more efficiently.

An O-ring chain, quick release rear wheel, snail cam chain adjustment, head and taillight assembly, U.S. Forestry-approved spark arrester and a resettable tripmeter come standard on each model.

Each machine comes stock with flimsy plastic handguards designed to protect you from bugs, small branches, the cold and little else. Toss them in favor of some good aftermarket aluminum or sturdy plastic wrap-around pieces. The psychological effects of real protection will do wonders for your riding confidence.

Kawasaki should be applauded for their continuing efforts to produce high quality two-stroke motorcycles for recreational off-road enthusiasts -- an off-road segment that is under heavy scrutiny due to ever-tightening emission regulations. It would seem that producing four-stroke motorcycles is not only the politically correct thing to do but they are also easier to market. With impending CARB regulations we're not sure how much longer you'll be able to purchase new KDX's in California but consider this model the last of a dying breed. Two-stroke off-road machines may soon join their street siblings as classic heirlooms to remember.
Get 'em while you can

Wellding your frame will not afect your mot but you should consider wellding the exhaust and moding it to fit the frame as it is.

Now discussing:

The stock hand guards are pretty hammered. Most importantly, they only offer minor protection on the trails. We wanted something sturdier.

In search of an inexpensive, yet reliable, off-road trail bike, we had narrowed our search to a Kawasaki KDX 200. After a few weeks of searching, we picked up one in good running condition for under $1,000. The bike ran great, had new tires and a clean engine, but it could use some updates, maintenance and a few part upgrades to get it back up to speed.

In the first part of our KDX 200 Refresh project, we focused on updating the front and rear sprockets and replacing the chain with new units from Rental. We also swapped out our old bars for a new set of RC High Renthal bars that are a little more suited to our height. For the second part of our project, we want to focus on updating some of the worn plastic, adding some heavy-duty Acerbis hand guards for the trail and also perform some basic maintenance.

The Acerbis Multiconcept X-Pro kit offers more serious protection from trail debris. The kit also includes fitting for both a standard 7/8” bar and oversized 1 1/8” bars.

For starters, the stock hand guards found on the KDX 200 don’t offer much serious protection for heavy branches, rocks and other trail debris and obstacles. We turned to Acerbis, a staple in the off-road dirt bike scene since the early ‘70s. Acerbis made its name making replacement plastic pieces to improve upon the OEM units found on bikes. It now offers replacement plastic, fuel tanks, hand guards, numbers plates and more for just about every off-road dirt bike on the market (and actually produces a good amount of plastic for OEMs).

Since the Multiconcept X-Pro hand guards attach to the end of the bars, the end of the grips and throttle tube must be cut to accommodate it.

A large number of off-road, motocross, freestyle and ATV racers utilize Acerbis’ products, especially its heavy-duty off-road hand guards. We wanted something that offered good protection for trail riding so we went with the Multiconcept X-Pro, which actually attaches to the end of the handlebars for a secure and sturdy fit. The installation is fairly straightforward and can be adapted to standard 7/8” bars or oversized 1 1/8” bars.

Aside from attaching the hand guards to the bar ends, this piece mounts the metal hand guard frame to the middle of the handelbars. Once catch: If you’re using a stock-sized clutch lever, the ball-end will have to be ground down to fit. The other option is to replace the clutch lever with a shorter piece.

Once the guard is pieced together it is fit into the handlebar end and can be tightened using an Allen Wrench. Fully tightening should be avoided until the hand guard frame is properly positioned on the bars.

Once you’ve found the right place for the middle bar mount for the hand guard frame, tighten the bar end.

With the hand guard frame fully installed, the last step is to attach the plastic hang guard covers. Acerbis includes both small and large plate covers, so install whichever suits your type of riding or personal preference.

We didn’t plan to replace every bit of plastic, but the front and rear fenders were both pretty scratched up. We turned to Acerbis again for the front replacement. Acerbis doesn’t offer a rear fender for the KDX, and we didn’t come up with a great number of options. Our 2000 KDX 200 was originally a potential dual-sport bike, meaning it could be used for both on- and off-road use if it was registered and plated for the street. Therefore, the original rear fender included a taillight, though a high-clearance motocross-style fender was replaced by the previous owner.

The old fender (bottom) has seen its share of trail time, so the new Acerbis (top) front fender will be a welcome replacement.

The new Acerbis front fender is secured via four bolts. It’s installation is simple and it is a welcome esthetic upgrade.

Unfortunately, this two-stroke-powered bike can no longer be used on the street in our home state of California due to the stringent California Air and Resources Board (CARB) emission standards. But with our limited options for rear fenders, we ended up contacting Kawasaki directly for a rear replacement. Although it’s not always the cheapest option, finding original parts from the manufacturer can sometimes be the best bet since there’s no question the parts will fit and work for the intended application.

The previous owner of the KDX 200 replaced the rear fender with a motocross-style piece (left), but it was held on with mismatched bolts and washers. It was worn and ready to be replaced. We went with a OEM replacement fender from Kawasaki (right).

Only a few bolts and the rear fender was installed. There are two cavities on the OEM bumper – one for the taillight and another on top for a tool kit.

The OEM rear fender has a spot for the aforementioned rear brake light, and although we can’t take it on the street we went ahead and installed the light since we still had the proper wire connections and wanted a clean look. The OEM fender also originally had a spot for a tool kit that is no longer available. We went ahead and spent a few bucks on some nice stainless-steel bolts to cleanly plug the holes and give it a finished look as opposed to leaving them open.

Although we unfortunately cannot make our two-stroke-powered KDX 200 street legal in California, we went ahead and installed the rear taillight. Although Kawasaki no longer offer the tool kit for the rear fender, we purchased some stainless-steel bolts to plug the holes and give it a cleaner look.

Once installed, we actually like the original look of the KDX 200 fender. The previous owner installed a shorter motocross-style fender, but the stock unit offers plenty of clearance and gives the bike a clean profile. If we ever want to dual-sport the bike down the road in a state in which we can, the taillight is ready to go as well. At least it’ll give us the option.

After a few rides, we needed to clean our dirty air filter. We used UNI’s air filter cleaning kit to get the dirt out.

File this one under regularly scheduled maintenance, but we were due after a few rides to clean our air filter. This is maintenance that many bike owners don’t do enough, but airflow to the engine directly impacts performance. We grabbed our UNI filter cleaner kit and got the dirt out. The directions are straightforward, but it’s important to note that after using the foam cleaner that you do not rinse the filter with a high-pressure stream of water. Strong water can damage the filter and create holes in it, allowing dirt to makes its way into the engine and cause damage. A slow stream of water is all that’s needed to rinse the cleaning solvent.

After the filter has dried out and is ready for oiling, we greasing the filter end so it sits flush in the air box to prevent dirt sneaking through into the engine.

Once the filter is rinsed, let it dry (probably overnight) naturally before applying filter oil. Once the filter is oiled and ready for installation, be sure to apply a small film of grease to the base of the filter so it creates a proper seal once seated in the air filter compartment.

Since our bike can sit a few weeks between rides, we also used some Lucas Oil Chain Lube on our new Renthal chain. Although the new chain is still greased up since it only has a few rides on it, the chain lube will also help protect it from moisture and rust while sitting.

Since our bike will oftentimes sit a few weeks between rides, we used Lucas Oil’s Chain Lube to keep our chain lubed and help inhibit rust and corrosion. It also is safe to use on our O-ring chain.

For our next installment, we finally find a seat cover option in our own backyard at Stomp Designs (http://www.stompdesign.com/) and fix our dented FMF Gnarly Pipe with Pacific Crest Pipe Repair in Oregon (http://www.piperepair.com/). We also make a few more upgrades along the way. Be sure to check the first part of our KDX 200 Refresh here.
