2-stroke and electric start?

Recommended Posts

Does it exist. Fairly new to the dirt bike scene. I have a 94 wr250 right now. I love it except for the seat height and kickstart. Being 5'7" and stalling in the woods makes for some difficult re-starts.

I like the 2 stroke for simple maintenance. I am in the market for something newer. Would prefer electric start. Seat height is no issue as long as I can easily re-start the thing.

My budget is $2500 and less.

Any ideas or suggestions?

thanks!

Mike

I do believe KTM makes a 2 stroke e-start...not totally positive though, sorry.

KTM have e-start on the 250 xc & xc-w or the 300xc & xc-w.

Ya '08 and newer KTM's have the estart on the 2t's... it's pretty kewl to have but really not necessary. KTM's have a taller seat height though so you'd have a tough time with one.

I say you should get a 2005+ YZ125 or 2001+ KTM 125SX. Both are easy to kickstart and prolly have somewhat comparable motors to that old WR. These 125s have the best motors available for their size and for woods work, super lightweight, and effortless to kick.

I would save yourself the extra $$ your gonna spend for an electric start. That would save you a considerable amount.
