  1. Any particular year to look for? I thought i read the seat height went up quite a bit for the 08' and newer models, any idea what the best range of years for them would be?
  2. A lot of things I have been reading have pointed to KTM 200 xc-w or exc. I'm curious if you think I would have issues with the amount of power it has (mid 30 HP iirc), and how much the running costs are. Thoughts?
  3. Hello, I am 20 years old from Michigan, 5'10, 150lbs and about a 32 inch inseam. I was curious what kind of bike you guys would recommend for me, I owned a TTR 125LE for about 5 years, and sold it a couple of years ago, as it was just too small and i didn't have the time to ride it very often. I'm looking to get back more into riding again, and my budget is around $2500-3000. I do not do any motocross riding, it is all trail riding. Trying to look at other people's topics like this, I see things all across the board. I would probably only ride about 30 hours a year, or less, and I would prefer something that doesn't require too much maintenance, but a few hundred dollars a season would be fine. Thanks for any help in advance!

    Hot Cams Instalation

    I have a 2005 TTR 125 Le and i would like to know how hard it would be to install new hot cams. I don't know much on repair but my dad know quite a bit. He thinks it would be very difficult. Also is it a good performance boost, better that an exhaust system. Austin

    Value of a TTR 125 le

    Sorry if this has been posted before, i couldn't find it in the search mode. I was wondering if anyone would now how much i could sell my 2005 ttr 125 le for, it has aftermarket graphics, acerbis rally pro hand guards, and an Acerbis head light. It has low miles and is in perfect running condition and excellent cosmetic condition. thanks Austin

    Yea your right about the kx not lasting me that long, i am looking at a Wr 250f, i don't really know if it it going to be right for me. Does it have too much power for tight woods? I am 14, 5'6, 120 pounds and have been riding a ttr125Le for approx. 8 months and i am a decent rider. I do mostly trail riding, and i am starting to put a few jumps in my back yard but will still do mainly trail riding. I don't know if i should just wait until i am tall enough for a Wr 250f or buy that later on?

    What are some ways i can convince my dad to let me buy a new bike? He keeps saying "There's nothing wrong with the one you have now","You just got that one", and after i tell him i want a new one because this on is too short, "There isn't a certain height limit for bikes". I know he is right but soon i will buy a car and i am afraid i will never buy another bike until i am old (well about 25).

    How easy is a 250f to ride, because i imagine it would be very aggresive compaired to my bike and even the kx100? Is it true that if you ride a yz you have to keep it reving high or the engine will die? Is there large amounts of maintenence?

    I dont think i am good enough or tall enough to ride a 125 or 250f, but if i could ride a 250f would i be better off with a Wr?

Do you think this bike is too powerful for me? I also herd that you can modify a kx100 to be a good trail bike, thanks in advance. -Austin
