YZF for 85cc class

Recommended Posts

To all of you that think there could possibly be a YZ1X0F bike, think about this. What's the worst part of a 4-stroke? Starting it while it's hot. Sure, once you get the routine down, it's usually not too bad. Try teaching that to a 10 year old kid. You don't think they're going to move the throttle at all while trying to start it? I'm not saying kids are idiots, but I doubt they'll have the discipline to go through the routine to start the thing after they dump it in a corner during a race.

You also have to figure that the added weight is a bigger deal on a 85cc bike than a big bike w/ an adult (or almost adult) riding it.

The bike for sure won't have compression release and probably won't even have a hot-start lever. You don't even need to find TDC with 4 stroke motocrossers. Just give her a long hard kick and she will start for sure. Starting cold is a totally different thing. Sometimes she will go, and sometimes she won't. What would be really cool is if the new YZ150F had e-start like the new Huskys'. Oh, and even the aluminum frame. I'm so excited!!!

Speaking of a YZ150F, I saw some graphics for one on the XGX racing website last month in some obscure link, but for the life of me now, I can't find it! :)

I found a pic of someones idea of what it will look like. It is possibly photoshopped.

If it looks anything like this my son may be getting one.

it wont be hard for a little guy to start. just make sure he knows to lay off the throttle when he starts it after dumping it in a corner or somewhere. tell him to put his hand on the mc or somewhere instead of touching the throttle. then it'll start right up no problem.

That looks like a nice little gem. Imagine a few of those screaming around a track!! Cool, brings back the same excitement as the big bikes :) .
