Opinions on KX85 to buy

Recommended Posts

I have cash to buy my son a 2006 to 2012 KX85 and wanted opinions from the group on the similarity to a YZ85 in terms of get-up-and-go (my YZ85 is a rocket with wheels), parts swapping with a YZ85 possible, and/or persistent maintenance issues. 

 

What year models to stay away from? 

 

Is it a good buy for a fair price? 

 

Highly unscientific poll:  KX or YZ ?

 

Thanks Y'all

KX has a power valve, YZ doesn't. KX power is smoother. 2001(or 2002, I forget) through 2013 are the same bikes. No real differences.

 

Both are great bikes. KX parts seem easier to come by.
