    Default JD Jet Kits?

    Where do I get one?
    I know some of you guys have ordered them in the past.

    Skip all the suggestions about just getting individual jets from some local place and playing guessing games.
    For the $40-50 a JD jet kit costs, it's worth every penny in my mind because he's bang on the money every time. (According to anyone I've ever spoken to that got a kit from him.)

    You mentioned about BJ's bike being more snappy, keep in mind that it has the Boysen Reeds as well as full FMF? exhaust

    Figures, no KDX kit. I've sent them an email.

    I've got the same exhaust. The difference may be just the reeds but I doubt it.

    My bike is harder on fuel and more spooge. Two things that lead me to believe it's rich.
    Plus, I backed the air screw out a quarter turn yesterday and noticed an improvement. My guess is that is is rich throughout the entire powerband.

    Since JD doesn't make a kit, I guess I'll just have to pick up a series of Keihin gets and needles and start messing around.

    Cool, since you already backed out the air screw and felt improvement, drop the needle 1 clip position (raise the clip on the needle by 1 notch) and I'm positive you will feel improvement in the 1/4-3/4 throttle range. Excess spooge is an indicator, the airscrew and needle adjustment made a world of difference in my old KX, seemed like a different bike, I also went 50:1 oil ratio. Just easy tinkering to try out on the next ride before re-jetting IMO.

    Cool

    Hammer: You might try here: http://www.dynojet.com/jetkits/motorcycle/kawasaki.php

    I don't see anything listed for a KDX200, so you might have to ask. You could also check here:
    http://www.denniskirk.com (I bought a few KDX parts there).

    One more: http://www.frpoffroad.com/ (Jeff Fredette's site...he made the KDX famous)

    Mine ran good when I got it, but then when I put on the pipe and Boyesson reeds it really came to life. It also has the No Toil air filter and replacement sprockets (front & rear) that I believe are different than stock.

    I think the real secret is the black fenders !

    Thanks Ben.
    Robby and I dropped the needle one position last night and went two sizes smaller on the pilot. I think we've got the pilot too small now but he didn't have a 45 in his bag of tricks.
    I'll go and pick up some jets today or tomorrow.
    I think we've got it pretty close right now. 1/4 to 3/4 seems to be bang on, full throttle has always been on the money.
    I think we're just a touch lean right off idle right now.

    And I'm ordering reeds this week.
