Maintenance



Want your KDX to run like it did the day it was new? Then you need to have a maintenance schedule and follow it. A Factory Service Manual is an investment that will pay for itself many times over. BUY ONE!

The followig is a general maintenance chart from KDX 1989-1994 Service Manual. These are only average times between servicing. If you ride in muddy or dusty ares you may need to vary this chart. Check your owners manula for the maintenance schedule for your particular bike.
