Klx140 vs Crf150f

Recommended Posts

I'm an older pit bike racer (48) and I currently own two klx110's I'm looking at building a bigger mini...17 inch class. Between the KLX140 or the CRF150F which bike has a better base starting point? I've read a few posts here and it seems like suspension is a fairly easy modification by either adding the cr85 or the kx85 stuff. Seems like the forks are a direct bolt on. Which rear suspension is easier to do on which bike? I've also noticed that there may be more options for the Honda Motor then the Kawasaki motor. Any info you guys have would be great! Thank you!

a 110 will get the holeshot but the 100 will get it at the end because of its top speed.. but im trying to say 100's are slow and you will not have no fun with that. Get a crf150

how old are you? Just curious.

I have had fully modded XRs and fully modded KLXs and the XRs in stock form are faster and accelerate quicker then a modded klx, the modded xr will kill the klx. XRs are sweet bikes, the crf150f 's are heavy as hell, have electric start(just adds weight , plus it has no kick start) and the klx 140 would be a better option then the crf150f but the xr or crf100 would be best decision , I used to race pitbikes reall hard for several years.

you are thinking about the CRF 150r wich is a race bike, the crf150f(the one the op is considering) is a strict trail bike..

Ummm.... and 08 150f has electric start.

 

Now, I'm no expert, but I think that the OP is talking about the 150f, especially since he is talking about the klx140. These two bikes are in the same league.

 

The 150r would blow all of these out of the water! Except the 2t 85s.
