is it or not?

is the kx 100 good for me to get. i weight 120 im 5'11 or 5'10 one of those two so should i get this bike or a different on. this is going to be my first 2 stroke and im good at riding with clutch and all of that good stuff. so is it?:D

get a 450, JUST KIDDING, how long have you been riding? and if you are that big you might just want to go for a kx125

I'd second the 125. At 5'10" you will fit better and have more fun on a big bike.

Try a 125; at 5'10" you'll be folded up like a pretzel on the 100.

im 6ft and i fit ok on a 100 not like a 125 but i can ride it pretty good,

and weighing 120 lbs the kx100 will for sure still haul your butt around,

i would say sit on one, find someone thats local and ride it for a little, im sure you can find someone local through TT or CL etc. that has a kx100 that will let you ride it,

i wanted to buy a cr125 once and asked the guy to meet me at the track to see if i even liked it i told him id pay him 50 bucks for an hour on it at the track kinda like a bike rental, well it was a 50 well spent as i didnt like the bike at all and got a yz125 instead, if i would have bought the cr without really riding one first i would have been disapointed and i would have sold it soon after i got it.

overall chances are you will like a kx125 more then a 100, but everyone is built different have longer arms legs etc. so sit on one or at least ride one before you make a choice to buy one:ride:

i was 13 and 5,5 probably 130. and i got a 125 i could barley sit on it, i think you would be better on a 125. also if you get the 100 your just going to have to sell it in another 2 years for a bigger bike anyway.

go with 125 for sure.

im 6ft and i KNOW for a fact that you will be crumpled on a kx100.

so go with the kx125!!!!!!

might i add they are very quick bikes :D

      Hi all,
      I have a 2004 Kawasaki kx250 that died suddenly on me the other day. all i can get it to do is backfire every once in awhile. Tested the resistance and everything of the magneto and stator with a multi-meter and all is good.  Coil is new oem Kawasaki the reeds are brand new vforce and the top end and carb have been completely rebuilt.  key on crank is intact and all the timing marks are lined up. I hooked a timing light to it and spun the motor over really fast and found that it is sparking way to late.  The service manual says that it is supposed to fire 14 degrees before TDC but it is sparking way after TDC.  Im thinking its a fried CDI box since its the only thing i wasnt able to check.  Any help would be appreciated

      Hi all,
      I have a 2004 kx 250 2 stroke and it wont start.  it only backfires.  I was out riding it one day and came up to a stop so the bike was just idling and it started to try and die so i revved it up a few times then let it die and now it wont start back up.  It only pops or backfires when you kick it.  Its getting good spark and i just put a brand new plug and coil in it. I took the reeds apart and they look like they're brand new.  It was running great before so i dont know what happened.  Im thinking it could be a fuel problem even tho the plug is a little wet if you take it out after a bunch of kicking.  Any help would be greatly appreciated

      Alright, found three bikes all located where i live in Texas. I know they're all very different, but if you could tell me what you think each bike is worth, and which one would be the best deal. Thanks.
      Notes: Both 2 strokes have new top ends. I think the front brake lever is broken on the kawasaki.
      KX250 2002 $800-$1000?

      YZ125 2000 $1250

      KTM 400SX 2002 $1200

      So I'm at a bit of a cross roads, I currently own a 06 rm250 and I love it. I also have a 02 kx250 which I'm selling with intent to buy a newer two stroke. I can't afford a newer ktm and the older ones aren't that great and kawasaki never impressed me. so I'm stuck between 06 yz250 and 05 cr250. I've heard the yz and rm after 06 are almost the same bike just the Suzuki handles better and the Yamaha has better suspension. So I'm not sure if I wanna buy carbon copy of my bike with slight differences. That's why I'm interested in a cr250 I heard the 02+ models RC valves are shit garbage but was mostly fixed in the 05-07 models. I ride at a track and at some bogs down the road from me. So from people who have owned both, what would you recommend. I know the cr is known for a hard hitting power band which I enjoy since im an aggressive rider. Should i just see which deal comes my way first.
