Hello everyone! Ive been driving myself and my husband crazy recently. I can't seem to find the right bike that fits me. I've read hundreds of different articles and still coming up short. I'm about 5'7 and 140 pounds. I'm not a huge expert rider. I've done trail riding for 5 years now and only like to do low end, tight trails and some uphill riding. I've had a crf230. Then switch to a crf150rb with an added fly wheel. But the 230 felt very luggy. And the 150 had the worst kick start of any bike when it came to the trails. I don't like too heavy bikes. But I just don't see an option really. The two strokes scare me (maybe I'm just being bias). I just need more on the low end. Any suggestions? (we are buying a crf250x for my husband, maybe that bike will be ok?)
I've been on a ttr 230 for 2 years & I'm finally upgrading. I'm looking at a newer yz 125. I've had minimal experience on a 2 stroke, so it will be a learning curve, but im super bored of the ttr lol. It's a heavy tractor and I feel like I learned a vast amount from it. Im just ready for an upgrade! I do trail riding, but I also want to do track riding. I live 15 minutes away from one lol. One thing I'm worried about is plug fouling. I've been ripping through the trails im familiar with on my ttr no problem. But I definitely plan on taking it a bit easy until I learn the ropes of a 2 stroke. If it's a newer bike should I really have to worry about going "slow" for a bit? If keeping rpms high avoids fouling, hypothetically, couldn't I just rip it in first & second gear 😂 I've heard mixed things about a 125 being a trail & track bike. The closer range gearing is also going to be something else to get used too. I can get a screaming deal on a 2020 yz 125 at the stealership right now. And with the season here, bikes are hard to come by now where im from. Someone even wants to buy my ttr for more than I paid so im really considering it! I was thinking if I end up not liking the bike, I'll just sell it at the beginning of next season & get something else. 😂 How's your experience on a yz 125 if you're an intermediate rider with minimal 2 stroke experience?
Thumper talk; I need some help I've just bought a 2014 yz250f. Great bike love the power around the fields. Took it to the trails for the first time last night after rain and I struggled quite a bit. Buddy of mine told me about the gytr power tuner and according to him the smooth power map is a huge improvement for beginners trying to climb up steep hills covered in mud. On Yamahas website they have a few basic maps for my year of bike (2014). I cant find any maps made for smooth power delivery and I dont want to have to pay the dealer 20 bucks everytime I want to adjust the tune on my bike. I'd love to hear what you guys are running and what you reccomend for a novice rider. I'm considering just buying my own tuner but they cost almost $500 to order in Canada
The do it all bike doesnt exist, I know that, but Im looking for something pretty damn near close to it. My dilema: I live in Mexico and It is one of the most biodiverse places you can possibly think of; I can ride at 12,000 feet between pines, the next day shred a desert, and the last day be in a tropical forest. Any thoughts on a bike that you may think can handle all of these relatively well? Gracias amigos!
