Looks like a 1995-or-later KDX200 or 220 to me.

Yup, it's a KDX for sure.  My bet a 200.

We have a winner.  2002 KDX 200!  The tool bag on the rear fender gives it away.  Currently pull the suspension apart for a rebuild.  Runs pretty strong though.  I took it out for a shake down run a couple days after this picture.  It's going to be a trail bike for the mountains out in the western part of the state.

The KDX is the mountain goat of "trail" bikes.  I had a 2002 220, was a torque monster, not meant to rev though...quickly runs out of steam if you try to race it.  I miss the days of two strokes zipping all over the place ;-)

KDX for sure. Id rather ride that through the woods over a kx500!! 500 is too much bike for between the trees. At least for me it is.

KDX 200s were the go to bike for Cross country in a few classes.  Absolutly no comparison on a open class to a 200.  Open Class in back woods are more art and finese than going fast.  I had a 1979 CR390 Husky, now that was one freakin fun bike in the woods.  Like any typicle Euro bike in that day, it hated to turn, so it took a bitof understanding to steady that bike, but MUD, Man tha Bike loved MUD.
