Got this in a trade for my 2006 raptor 350, very awesome trail bike and sorta easy to ride. got it as my first dirtbike and plan to upgrade to a yz125 next spring because im bored of the lack of power espeecially when riding with my brother on his ktm2 250.
Great bike. Wide ratio 6 speed. Lots of torque and power, very reliable. Easy to work on and aesthetically beautiful. Shifting can be kind of clunky trying to find neutral, and going from neutral to 2nd is clunky. Might make a good 2 stroke dualsport someday. Open up the carb boot and youll get great top end power
My sons first race bike. Great 2T learning bike. Throttle is pretty much a light switch… either luggin or trying to keep the front wheel planted … I had to learn more clutch control just to teach him. Bike is easy to work on and reliable
Found a good price on this bike from a local dealer selling on consignment, so bought as my son’s “next bike up” once he outgrows his CR85R. Power of a 125 on a mini-moto frame. Fun bike, but a lot of work so far. The cheap after market top end (Namura) the dealer installed combined with me riding it to hard before breaking resulted in two blown head gaskets. On the bright side, it’s been a great training aid for my son on how to mechanic!
