Love the KDX, everyone else I've talked has commented that an aftermarket silencer is not gonna give me big gains over the stock one. I've got most gain out of the KDX with USD forks, carb & head mods by RB Designs, and lastly the expansion chamber. However, wanting a little more 2T power, so I just got me a KX250 to try this season...it's street-legal plated too.

that's a gorgeous KDX I must say!!! Looks new or you ride barefoot razz , but I just had to comment on your silencer:
You see, the bike itself weighs about 105 Kg, of which the exhaust-chamber is a large part.
That you've taken care of by the looks of it.
But now the std-silencer you still have on (~52 Kg Cool ) pushes the back down!
Look at your sandy pic - er, logical I'd say?
pirat

Jokes aside, years ago I only had money for an FMF cilencer, so only put that on. The chap told me there's zero difference as the pipe made a huuuge one, but, lacking cash, I didn't put it on.
On the way home (suburban area) it wheelied a LOT easier off the various speedhumps..... so the next morning I went back for the pipe!!
Never regretted that, but that silencer does make a big diff - maybe get one?
Enjoy that bike, it's already a classic (not made anymore, surely you know?).

Actually, I lost out on a hill climb challenge with my riding buddy. His KTM300 2T has noticeably more power than my KDX220. He made it up the hill. mad as heck
