What bike do u recommend

Recommended Posts

What's the better bike the 2008 ktm85sx or a 2010 yz85? Or 2007 crf150r?

I ride track more often but I like to ride on logging roads/trail too but what's the pros/cons for each bike and maintenance cost and how often? thanks anything helps!

All are fine bikes... but... I'm not sure you want to deal with the maint of the CRF.  The CRF requires frequent oil changes, valves checked for clearance, and reshimed.  The valves will also require replacement,  On a 2007, I would expect that it needs a complete top end.  Quick estimate for piston, rings, valve replacement, timing chain, gaskets, could easily be $1,000...  

 

The KTM and the YZ... both are probably due for a top end, (less then $200) but its a tough call...  I'm a KTM guy, so I'd recommend the KTM, but you can't do wrong with the Yami.  Look at them both and pick the one that fits you.
