I gave the performance a 4 star because of the stock pipe - it is heavy and it also reduces the true power within the bike itself. The bike in all ways is a great creation, it has good suspension that can be adjusted and rebuilt to your liking. The power can be endless with the modifications that are out there. You can go with a pipe, reeds, 2 stage air filter, flywheel weight, gearing, and more. The mods are really endless with this bike. All in all the bike is a 1 of a kind, no other manufacturer makes a bike quite like this, and by far will beat most bikes out there to this day, big or small.

In 2004 I was looking to get back into dirt biking after not riding since I was 16 (that was 12 years ago). After much research I really wanted a 4 stroke. This was mainly because I heard they were headed for extinction. However, after much research, I narrowed my selection down to the KDX 220 and the CRF 230. I didn't want to spend the extra money to get a 250cc class 4 stroke. In reality, these two bikes were quite different. However, I narrowly chose the KDX because I was afraid I would outgrow the CRF in a year or two. After bringing the KDX home, I was initially afraid I made the wrong choice. I could hardly touch the ground and the power was SCARY. However, as I grew used to the bike, I found it very manuverable with a nice broader powerband than I expected from a 2 stroke. After riding it for a year now, I must say thank God I did not get the CRF 230 play bike. I think I would have loved it for the first 2 weeks (when I was afraid of my KDX). However, by now I would surely be wanting more. This bike is super comfortable to ride for extended periods with a nice plush seat. The suspension will bottom out in jumps of any height and will need adjusting if that is what you are into. Love how light and powerfull it is. Easy to start!! (which is important without a magic button like the CRF 230) I would definitely recommend!

Big bores can be a big bore in tight stuff.I lost my trusty xr600 and bought an 03kdx220r,tabu for die hard honda fans! crf450s are race bikes not woods bikes despite the size of your ego. .XR400s could pass for 1986 models by putting orange plastic on them. I get more smooth low end torque than I could have dreamed on the 220. My enthusiasum for the sport hasn't been this strong since I was sixteen. While riding wheelies I need to remind myself I'm not on a bicycle. Proof that a toting 280 plus lbs through tight woods and fire roads should have stayed in the era of any sunday.

This is a realy nice bike in the tight trails and has great low and mid range power. not so much on the top end. very soft front suspention for a 180lb+ rider. Thought about buying another kdx 220 but changed my mind and bought an exc 300 another nice woods bike. Never fouled a plug with the kdx in the two years i road it.

the kdx is an excellent bike for the price. but kawasaki had to skimp to offer it at 4399. the stock pipe and silencer much to heavy and restrictive. the stock carb on the 220 is too small even thou kawasaki makes the smaller carb sound like a good thing. overall its a good bike for a 170lb rider but if you are heavier than that your best off with a bigger mount.

The kdx is a great bike. I have hade mine for a few years now and like it very much. This Bike can do just about anything. Ive climbed endless hills, tackled rocky stream beds, fallen logs, mud, snow and ice (with a little help from srudded tires), and some 45ft. jumps in the local gravel pit for good measure. the handling is great, suspension is awesom, ergos are nice, and breaks are srnong. the only bad thing on the kdx is the stock exhaust. it should be replaced by any thing else imediatly. i personaly perchased an fmf fat boy pipe and turbin core silencer of ebay and it makes a great differance. the bottom end is even stronger and it gains some much needed top end. you also save about half the weight of the stock silencer and sound is much improved. I would also recomend either trading your carb with someones bigger carb off a kdx200, you will gain more top-end and not loose anything noticeable of the bottom. GREAT BIKE!
