CRF 150r any good for 65 rider moving up?


Recommended Posts

I have the opportunity to buy an '08 from a fellow moto dad who's boy is moving up to the 250f. My son is 9, a full time racer since PW, CRF50, KTM Pro Sr., now KTM 65sx. He is currently a top C rider and will likely point out to B by end of this season. Many kids in his class are already running some bike in the 85C... very few on the CRF 150. A few dads I know well have even bougth 150's -- only to get rid of them and go back to the 2 stroke. None of these guys seem to have a convincing reason. Any help on this i appreciated. I like the idea of my boy getting experience on a four stroke and moving towards the 85C class.­čśĆ

Some have said this bike makes a better supermini ride than a 65 to 85 class ride... .

IT seems to me.... that C grade riders benefit the most from jumping onto a CRf150r, I've seen speed increase by alot with some of them. It's up to you but start learning how to do valves etc, by the way it's not that hard.

Hi your son will have no problems riding the crf 150r,my son got his at the age of 9 and we had it new in 07 its been raced in enduro for 3 years now with no DNF,s,it does not require any special maintenance,check the valves and adjust if needed once every six month's,put a piston in once a year,change engine oil every 10 race hours and use a good synthetic oil,that's about it and he came of a crf 70 and moved up with no problems,take a look in my garage these bikes can go a long way,ours is now a full big wheel with loads of mods and 100% reliable,Martin.
