Best Pit Bike for the Money

Recommended Posts

I'm new to the world of pit bikes, but I must admit they look cool.

If money was an issue, what would be the best pit bike for the money. I have heard that Icon puts out a very good 90cc bike. What about modifying a CRF50? Too costly? I'm looking for the best bang for my buck....

Modding a crf50 can get VERY expensive if your looking for more than just say a big bar kit and an extended swingarm...

Best bang for the buck all depends on your price range? $600? $800? $1000? $1500?

Some where in between...

For around $800 check out the SSR 110-A1, or C3

For around $1000 I would look for a new SSR C4, or 90R, or maybe a slightly used Pitster.

For around $1500 check out the Pitster X2, X4, or SSR B2

I got a fully modded 04 KLX110 for $1500. Suspension, 138cc, pipe, bars, carb, the works, couldn't be happier with it. Try to look for something like that.

Oops.

My Sentra SER was made in Mexico, but I still think it is Japanese (although I have had some problems...).

crf 50s are great..all hondas are great, but generally people ask way to much, or they beat the crap outta them. i got an ssr and its great. it needed a few minor things like grips and levers, but i had a budget, and to mod out a crf you'll spend alot more than if you buy a sikk, or ssr, and eventually completley mod it out

Thank you.

So basically I should look at Pitster, Thumpstar, SSR, KLX (already moded), Orion, or a CRF (already moded).
