    I am interested in trading this bike for something smaller that would be more fun to ride with my lady. Needless to say even if she was a bad ass rider, she's not keeping up with this bike or my 450 anywhere on a KE100.

    It's a '00 YZ125. (six speed) The top end is solid, it kicks over easy, new levers, new renthal bars, new cycra probend bark busters, SDG gripper seat, I have brand new still in the bags factory yamaha plastics for it(full set minus fork guards), brand new renthal chain and sprockets (up 2 teeth in the back from 48 to 50 for a little more trail-ability) new grips, new throttle assembly, newer MX51's front and rear, front fork seals were done last season and it got ridden maybe 6 hours last season total, rear shock isn't leaking, acting fine, no idea when the last service was. I've only had the bike 2 years/seasons. I bought it from Grand Prix Motorsports when I worked there, everything was gone through before purchase. It will need front brake pads before next season I would imagine. It's jetted for altitude, it's got a spark arrested FMF turbine core 2 muffler.

    The only things wrong; Cosmetic - Seat cover isn't ripped but it's not really a great looking seat. Boot rub on the frame, typical roost rash on the swing arm/rear wheel, dented expansion chamber. Nothing exceeding normal wear for a bike like this, and if anything it's in exceptional shape for its age. Mechanical; I've been keeping fresh transmission oil in it every other ride because the clutch plates are starting to wear. Clutch plates are cheap and still available from bike shops.

    Other than that I could go out to my shed and kick it over right now and rip up thunder valley on it. She's a runner.

    Pics available if there's interest.

    I'm interested in anything play bike sized. two stroke 80/85 - TTR 125 CRF150R would be a dream trade. I could throw in an 03' XR50 to trade up to the 150R if anyone's interested that way too... I'm open to suggestions. She just gets frustrated when we ride and she sees my back tire for about 15 seconds before I'm gone.

    That's your fault, it's also why my Sister rides a 130 HP Ducati. :D

    Looking to trade my 1997 KTM 620 R/XC for a 250 2-stroke set up for the woods. Bike is street legal with title. Has 3300 miles in very good condition. Only known problem is it needs a throttle return cable. Unable to post pictures if you give me e-mail ad I can send to you.

    WTB: 150 ish thumper

    Hey guys.

    It's time for both my kids to move up. Looking to move my daughter off of the PW 50 and onto my boys KLX 110. to do that, I need to move the boy up the ladder.

    He's a big 10 yr old, but a definate thumper guy, and a trail rider, not a racer. Not looking for a two-stroke or high strung bike. We visited the dealers and he's right at the edge of going along the lines of a CRF 150f or KLX 140.

    If the price were right I'd consider DRZ/KLX 125L, TTR 125L etc...but due to his size/weight and rapid growth, I'd love to find a 150ish bike.

    Prefer to work with an ADV member when I can.

    Prefer something on the more affordable end sub-$1500

    If you have something that fits or suggestions PM me.

    Rod

    For what it's worth...

    Went through this a year ago. Shopped for a CRF 150 but after a lot of research, bought a KTM 85 SX. My boy was 8 1/2 at the time. The KTM, like the CRF, has small/big wheel kits. We trail ride - Rainbow Falls, 717, etc. Great bike for trail riding. Also strongly considered the KX85.

    Have you considered a trials bike? Like a 125? Limited in range but the fundamentals riding a trials bike sets the stage for riding anything well later on. Guy Cooper was the first to initiate cross training with a trials bike.

    A lot of options.

    I have 2 spare CT90 motors that are taking up previous garage space that could work with that bike if anyone is interested. I am willing to sell both for bottom dollar $40-50

    DOH! I wish I would have known that months ago when I took my 90 in for trans issues. Jim still has it an I don't know if I will ever see it again :lol3 Not that I am in any hurry.

    What are the malfunctions on the engines you have?

    damn, i should have posted earlier!

    I have no idea of any potential maladies with these motors, i went lifan when i purchased my CT (wanted e-start for the lady). I have one complete one and one missing a top end. I might sell them to ian, but if not they could be yours for cheap.

    Damn so many of us have these little CT's we should do a CT only rally sometime!

    Here's mine (not for sale):

    CT Rallye NOW, or wait until I get mine back :lol3

    That could be fun in a very odd sort of way. :evil

    Maybe we should have a central CT parts collection for whomever needs something.
