My son is on a yz80 and rides it like a boss, but he needs something bigger. We ride in the mountains but he needs something he can go fast and jump on, but I don't know what the next bike to put him should be. What are your thoughts? I looked at a Cr150r not sure if  four stroke  is the way to go or stay with two stroke really would like to move him small steps to feel comfortable.  My nephews on a bike that's way too big for him and he don't want to ride  thanks

How tall is he? How much does he weigh?  Is he riding MX tracks at all or primarily trails?  What's your budget?  Are you looking at new or use bikes?

I don't think the CRF150R is much (if any) of a step up from the 80.

I just had the same issue with my kid he was on a kx85 , just moved him up to a kx125 and he loves it . He's only 5'6 ,100 lb and has no problem on that 125 with stock suspension no lowering link or nothing I think the only option is a 125 because that 150r will be about the same as 80/85 and they are pricey .
