Faster

Suspension

Power band

Turn

Acceleration and top speed

I somehow have a VERY hard time believing youre 34.. But if you are 34 and can't handle an 85 nor know the difference between two 85 2 stroke mx bikes. Then you don't race and don't need a bike. But if this is all true and you can't handle an 85 2 stroke, get a crf70f 4 stroke....

He's got 69 in his username so he's got to be about 13. You're not going to notice enough between the two to make any big difference. Both are 85 2 strokes, both are meant for mx, and both are going to have similar powerbands to your kx. If you don't like 2 stroke snap get a crf150

An 85 is an 85, they will all ride almost the same, I'd say the YZ is the hardest hitting out of all of them, but my 10 year old brother rides one... Its not too bad.

It's like saying what's better a Wendy's cheeseburger or a Burger King cheeseburger, yeah they're different you'd be hard pressed to describe the difference to someone who had not had them both. And neither one is anything like Fish Taco's....

One last word of advice, condition is more important than brand at this point for you.
