Motocross?

@Beez but anyone else is free to chime in here.

 

Washatched is wanting to take up motocross racing, he currently has a underpowered PW80 and needs and upgrade on equipment. The choice is a KX125 or a 4 wheeler. We not sure to go with 2 or 4 wheels.

 

Also, I have the space to set up some hills/jumps for him to get practice on, what is the recommended hill height you would suggest for a noob?


The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realize it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it!!

Two wheels is way safer than those 4 wheelers. He probably should step up to a KX 85 or 100 before a 125. If he is big enough for a full size bike like a 125, stick with the 2-strokes, don't get a 250 4-stroke, way more expensive for maintenance. 

As for jumps, build tabletops or a jump to a tabletop and gradually make bigger as he gets better. Tabletops are safer for learning.

Thought of one other thing. If he finds motocross to be a lot of waiting around for his race while all the other classes run, he could try hare scrambles or enduros. Both have youth classes. Look at tha AMA website for clubs, tracks and event near you.

I had a PW80 about 20 years ago. Was just the right speed for me :)
