Rebuild YZ 125 or get new KTM 125 SX

Recommended Posts

I have a 07 YZ 125 that's been collecting dust for the past 8 years. I'm looking to get back into mx, so I'm thinking of getting a new bike or rebuilding my YZ. I've considered the KTM 150 SX but am heavily leaning towards the 125.

My YZ is in decent shape but I want that new bike feel. I'm contemplating on doing a full rebuild on the 125: engine, wheels, body, suspension revalve, controls and other pieces. What I'm looking to do will probably cost me around $4k, roughly. The new KTMs are around $7600 OTD last time I priced them in Texas a few months ago. If I take that $4k and sell my YZ I'd have a little over $6k.

What should I do? Buy a new bike or rebuild? If I buy a new KTM I'd wait for the 19 model.

(I don't race, just ride for fun)

If either way you're planning on spending $7600, i'd go for the new bike unless your looking for a project.

 

Putting $4k into a bike worth $2500, doesn't make sense from a resell/value perspective. At that point, you could probably sell your bike and buy an already built bike for not much more money.

The new ktm is leaps and bounds ahead of the yz. Putting money into a bike over a decade old is just throwing it down the drain.
