Default Pit bikes

I want to get a 125cc like a SSR but I've seen them from $300-$800

What's a fair price?

Just to put around the yard, probably make some dirt jumps. Maybe stroll around the hood at night a few times.

Should I avoid chinese ones?

I like how your brain works late at night.

I've seen them for sale a lot recently. Now I want one. Was going to get a lifan 125 cc to slap on the ct70 but that thing can't jump.

As far as the hood, I've ridden my 50 cc mini chopper (20mph) for hours. Shit was fun. First warning you don't take it out again.

My roommate has a little Honda 50cc and it's bored out to a 110 and that thing is so much fun to mob around and pop wheelies on. It hauls ass. As for the Chinese off brands ones I'd stay away from them. You definitely pay for what you get and with those buying used you're really taking a chance. If you troll Craigslist enough you be able to find a Honda or Yamaha for under 800. My other friend found a ttr110 for 300 on there and thats an awesome trail bike. Perfect for what your looking for

Don't get a Honda 50
You will need to get stuff for it to do anything on it (bars, rear shock, fork extensions, big bore kit just to start)
My friend destroyed the frame twice just from landing hard, and the foot pegs break off

The Chinese ones are a great starter bike and will hold up a ton better than a stock crf50 or even one with a few mods
And can be had cheaper

$500 is a ok price for a Chinese one and they come with big bore kits and all the stuff you need to ride and jump it
In the long run it won't cost nearly as much as a crf50

what?

no, you can pick up a stock crf/xr for 300-600 and drop a few hundred and it will out perform most chinese garbage, not to mention it wont grenade between your legs.

i used to be huge into pit bikes, i built a few from the ground up. stay away from the chinese crap, i read horror stories of engines literally blowing up. pick up a bone stock 50, throw some bmx bars and taller clamps on it, along with some wider foot pegs, stiffer spring in the front and back, toss a 88cc kit on it and call it a day. or what also was popular was a kawasaki klx110 which needs even less mods but a bit more pricey. regardless a name brand will run forever.

tbparts.com is your friend.

+1 on getting a stock crf 50 and building it. I find that building one is 1/2 the fun. I've ordered a lot of parts from TBolt USA: Pit Bikes, Engines, Parts, SSR, Pitster Pro, CRF50, KLX110 Also check out the planetminis forums
Mine started out stock and now it's extremely fun to ride

Chinese bikes are junk, frames and important parts are made out of cheap pot metal and aluminum parts that would normally be steel.
I'd look for an xr80 or xr100, then you have a better suspension to start with and don't have to worry about boring and stroking an xr50

Oh and I do believe they used sintered metal.. yeah that's just what I want, is a sintered aluminium rear hub.

Also, the lifans are pretty much exact "clones" of honda engines, but the Chinese that build the lifans have no concept of the word "tolerance". Could be buying a brand new bike that's good to go, could be getting a bike with a motor that only has a 10 hr life span.
