Yep, my 91 KDX200 was one of my favorite bikes, but that is a KDX250, not to sure about them...

I'm going to have to take pictures of my other smokers, but this ones a runner. I'm 23, and I also have a 1979 RM125 and a 1976 GT550 that I am restoring. Just picked up this 1971 TS185 a few weeks ago. It ran when my brother and I got it, but poorly. I pulled the carb to rebuild it, but it was un-fixable. The previous owner said it was taken to a shop to have the carb tuned by a pro, LOL. The needle jet had no shape, it was just straight like a peice of steel just put in there, the slide was tight as fuck, and had been forced in there incorrecty, it had a quarter jamed in there to hold the cable, and the adjustment screws were cranked in as tight as possible, the idle included. I put the settings back to stock and it ran like garbage, rich as hell. After all of those problems we said fuck it, and ordered a chinesse carb for her. Bolted it on, and it started first kick. Fucking right! My brother and I took her for a ride yesturday and it worked great, we rode for an hour or so untill the jacked up chain adjusters let the chain get real loose. Pretty good for $300 I think.




It apears to have later model rims on it. and it does have a side cover.

What can you tell us about the headlights? Also a candidate for posting in 'the cheap bike challenge' thread.

After I rebuild the 250 motor, I'm going to drop it in a 2000 KX250 frame. It'll be cool, I promise.

Thanks! Got it off a buddy who hadn't been riding it and started to fix her up. After almost 20 years had it pulled out and rad it running in five minutes!

Hi all. Long time lurker first time poster here. Some of you may know me from the kaw boards. There sure are some nice bikes in all those pages. Anyways I thought I'd say 'hey' and show my bikes.

75 Kaw S3A, rebuilt engine, ported, stage 2 reeds, Denco repops, ram air induction. I dont know how much hp its got but it isnt stock by any means. Ive had this bike for 25 years.



77 CT125. The 'farm bike' from what Ive seen about it. Only imported one year to the US. Tank is incorrect, but as far as I can tell, 95% is there and in great shape. Only has 3k on it. Runs like a swiss watch. Thinking of selling this little critter though. It sits alot.



71 RT1B. Needs a repaint and new 'undented' tank. Threw a rod in it last fall so it's on the slate for a rebuilt crank.
