You can always push start it ... It is a worry but so is global warming.

The battery will give you signs before leaving you stranded - usually.

Put in into 3rd, or 4th gear, then turn on the ignition, press the clutch, run with the bike. After you're at a decent jog, let go of the clutch completely, if it starts, press it back right away. Some people also call it "bump" starting.

Anyways, I think if you are a complete beginner, the CRF150F would be a decent bike. It depends how strong, and tall you are. For a weaker build, it is very heavy. Maybe consider a TTR125(LE) (Yamaha) or other 4 stroke 125.

I bump start my CR 125 in first gear haha

My bro has a CRF 150f and you can definatly tell its heavier than my bike but for a begginers bike it would be good.

Haha no. I run or go down a hill, pull in the clutch, put it in first and let go of the clutch. Starts every time

Ahh i gota 07 150F and its a little trouble gettin it started when stone cold but after a few pushes of the button it fires up. Never has it not worked first go once the engine has warmed up a little.

It is very reliable and like the others said, you can always bump start it and the battery charges while you ride so yeh. You'll be fine.

      This continues to be my favorite trail/race weapon!! In our Eastern tight woods, power is not King, handling is. And this thing outhandles them all!!!!
