Max weight on a XR 100?

Recommended Posts

Considering getting a bike for friends (girls) that come riding with me. I am thinking about an XR 100 for them but what is the max/optimal weight that is suggested for these things?

Realistically 150 lbs or so. I have seen plenty of 200lbs guys on them but it does not work well. First time riders or easy trail ridng 130-140 is close to limit for the bike to work OK.

Im 230 lbs and ride an xr80 up and down hills all day... Not trying to win races but just leisure trail rides it does just fine... My normal steed is a klx125L...

I would say 120. Those things have very weak suspensions and would just be terrible to tide in the woods if you weigh more than 120. If they weigh more than that, i would get them an xr200. I would say a CRF150 would be the best but you problibly dont want to be spending that much money on chicks lol.

Xr200- 500$

Crf150- 1200$
