Hi all, My son is almost 14 and outgrowing his CR85. It's a wicked little bike and he's done well on it in spite of mostly trails, hills and hare scrambles with that MX bike. Shouldn't have gotten him that in the first place- but I know better now. He's hunched over on it now, and he can ride my highly modded crf230 with a 37 in. seat without getting in too much trouble. Don't want to get him another mini bike at this point. Mostly looking towards next year when I figure he'll be significantly bigger- his voice is changing. Looking at full size bikes with lower seat heights and 2 stroke for light weight. Considered taming down a CR125 for trails (don't want another MX bike- .), but the guys on that forum suggested we'd be better off with a KDX 200 or KTM 150 or 200 exc or exw. So here I am. Would a 200 be a good bike for him? (I'll probably be riding it too) And I found one for sale that looks really interesting: 2004 200 SX converted to an EXC. Older guy selling due to health. Originally built by a KTM mechanic and sold it to the present owner. He said the guy only works on KTMs, and went all out since he could get the parts wholesale. 5 spd. w/ some gears (1st I think he said) swapped in from an xcw. Tweaked brand forks- not familiar but he said they're very expensive. High end crank, new cylinder (old cylinder had a small internal water passage crack) and piston w/ thinner base gasket. Engine NOT bored or ported, etc. Aftermarket exhaust w/ original exhaust to go with it. Accel rims. V-Force reeds. Aftermarket bars w/ risers and bark busters. New chain, sprockets, tires- needs nothing he said. All high end parts used. Asking $2500. Pics look like it is in very good condition. My main concern is the SX engine. I want something w/ low end torque. He said you can lug the heck out of it, and that the 200 engines for the sx and exc are the same. True? Thanks for any advice!
