    yz85 top end

    02 purchased used...was serviced reguarly (i have some recipts none for top end though) starts pretty good has great power but i was wondering if i should rebuild top end for insurance and if i do should i replace piston or just gaskets? thanks!

    yz85 or ktm65??????????

    moto-dad, thanks for replying.... i agree w you... but i broke down and i bought a very clean 03 rm 65, this thing was extemely clean looks new for the age, and i got a great deal on it. i got him on it and he seems too perfect in size as i expected but he can control it better than the 85. i wanted him to be confident riding the 2 stroke w clutch without loosing confidence in his riding ability. i am pretty sure a couple of months and he will be done with it! oh well, i guess i will inherit a pit bike!
  5. i have a 11 yr old (short guy) 4ft7in...and i brought home a yz85 as a surprise!well after all said and done i was gonna let him take it for a spin and it just seems to fit him too big...he says it is ok...he can ride it....but i have to help him on and if he were to fall he might not be able to pick it back up much less start it..so i am thinking maybe a ktm 65....every thing else seems out of the question. what do you guys/gals think?
