Pit Bike Recommendations?

Recommended Posts

Looking to get a pit bike for my son (and me) to use primarily to get around at the MX races. But my son may also want to race it in the pit-bike class.

We currently have a Thumpstar but are selling it and looking for a KLX110 or a Suzuki DRZ110 (I think it's a DRZ...).

Any recommendations? Is one better than the other? I am thinking the Honda CRF70 is too small...

Thoughts?

Kawi KLX110 & Suzooki DRZ110 are exactly the same bike, literally. Except for the color of the plastics. Great bikes, millions of mods you can do to them. (suspension, motor, etc...) Stay away from 2002 though. (First year of KLX; bottom end of the 02' engine is different from 03'^). Kawi strenghtened the output shaft in 08', but aftermarket forged versions are available for 03'^ models. You can usually find used KLX's (or DRZ's) on Craigslist for anywhere from $500-$800. Build it up from there, depending on what you want to do with it.
