Last time I checked there was just one supermini class but divided into age groups.

Did something happen in the past year?

You can race a bone stock 85 in supermini if you want. Supermini max displacement is 112cc

If your buddy is looking for a supermini, I have an expert 150r for sale:thumbsup: My sister-in-law(lives in NJ) is driving to my house in a couple of weeks, if you do want the bike I can have her bring it back to Jersey:smirk:.

Your KX 100 is an outlaw supermini. You will have to check the rules of the track or race series you want to run on the 85s. In other words if you ride a standard wheel 85, 14" rear wheel and 17" front, you are leagal in all 85 classes and your age will divide what age class you race in. However, many tracks or mx series consider the 85 big wheels, 16" rear wheel and 19" front, to be beginner class, outlaw, supermini or school boy class bikes. If you go with a Honda 150, it in its own class or you can run it in the outlaw, supermini or school boy. You must run a big wheel in the school boy class. Now if you hit the nationals its broken out in to mod and stock class by age. Wow this is to much to remember. :banana:

Dude, you're way off. 85s race in the 85 class, divided up by age and stock or mod class. A KX100 is totally supermini legal and so is the crf150r, supermini. See llink below:

hahahahahaah

How can you tell him he is wrong when different organizations follow different rules? Not every track or sanctioning body follows MX Sports rules even if they do run some of the biggest races in the country.

Like I said, check your track or race series. And it gets more jill-flirted when you go to a local track and the rules change again. 100cc is super, and we call them outlaws.(run what you got and hope its fast enough). And here the honda 150 is in its own class unless you go to a local race and they run in the beginner, school boy (big wheel only) and outlaw. Everyone should check your state rules.

Obviously all local tracks do things "their" way. But the rules for the AMA Amateur National Motocross Championships 2010 are what I posted.

Do you seriously think these kids are going to try to qualify for the AMA Amateur National Motocross Championships 2010 when in his posts he says "wants to race"? They just want to go out to their local track and have some fun. Padgett is giving solid advice here.

you're right, it is good advice, check w/ your local track. I posted the classes that defined what supermini is. Like I posted, it is obvious that local tracks will do what they want but that doesn't change the definition of supermini.

He does know that the KX100 and 105 SX are two strokes, right?

Thanks, but my question was directed at the OP about his friend. Since he said his buddy wanted an 85 because he had a CR85 and missed the 2 stroke. So, I was wondering why he couldn't get a KX 100 or 105 SX to race in the supermini class, because they would be that same 2 stroke in which he is missing.

Maybe I was more sarcastically inquiring if the friend realized the KX and SX were 2 strokes or not.

      Garrett Poucher and Skyler Howes of Garrett Offroad Racing are headed to Dakar!  These US privateers are headed there for their first times but Skyler is fresh off a victory at last week's Baja Rally, won the Sonora Rally in March and this team placed third in the Baja 1000.

      They have a fundraising link set up and could use your help.
      I raced with Garrett at Baja Rally last year and then both of them at Sonora and was honored to pit with them as well.  They're both super guys and work their assess off.  I think they both have good chances of not only finishing the 11 days of Dakar but placing well.
      They're doing some rally training events this Sat, Oct 20 in Santa Clarita, CA and then another Oct 28th in St. George Utah so if you've ever considered learning rally raid navigation, this is your chance!  It's a lot of fun too.  More info on that at the link.
