weighted 125 sx

Recommended Posts

My son is slowly taking over my 200 exc which is great that he is stepping up to a bike bike,but now this means I have to find something else.

I have been thinking maybe step up to 250exc for myself even though my 200 is great for the single track we ride.

I dont see many 200's close to me for sale but see a good amount of 125 sx bikes.

How would a 125 with a flywheel weight compare to the 200 in the woods?

it all depends on your riding style and where you ride. I rode with a 17 year old kid on Saturday. he was on a slightly woods modded cr125 and i was on my very modded 250sx.

On the hills and in the more open fast sections i left him behind but in the tighter single track or slightly wider tight trails i couldn't keep up with him as he is able to just flick the little 125 all over the place.

if you can get a sweet deal on an 125 sx you can have the suspension tuned, get a larger gas tank, throw on a sparky, and a kick stand for around another grand.

I have went from 450's to a 300 and now a 250. In most woods riding situations i don't even need all the power that my 250 can put out but i can tell you that the smaller i seem to go in cc's the better the bike seems to handle and the easier it is for me to man handle. maybe i will find a 150 for my next bike?

Same boat here when I started riding I was on an XR600 and through the years I have lightened up and went smaller on cc's my 200 will do anything on the terrain I mostly ride and doesnt wear me down.

We'll see what happens
