Good Dirt bike for me

Hi guys I am looking to purchase a dirt bike.

  • I am 5 foot 5 ish
  • A teenager, so not a huge price range max is maybe 2400
  • No dirt bike experence
  • I probably want a 2 stroke
  • easy to maintain
 
Ok thanks, Due you have an idea how much that will cost me?

try with the 125, if you think thats too big, or you arent ready for it, try a 100 (KX100)
 
What kind of riding do you want to do?
I almost asked that question too but unless he is extremely naturally talented than it doesn't really matter. lol My first bike was a 94 YZ80 when I was 10 or so and that wasn't a very good decision. Very hard bike to learn how to ride. Not to mention I went through a shit load of spark plugs because I couldn't ride it hard enough to keep it on pipe. Even if he thinks he wants to get into MX I would recommend getting a something mellow like the CRF230 or something similar. He will be able to progress faster IMO.

I agree...I had a similar experience when I started riding on my 73 TM125...It kept loading up on me when ever I'd come into a turn too slow...I changed from premium to regular gas and the problem went away WITHOUT losing any performance...
