Hey guys I was wondering what bike I should get I havnt rode since I was in 7th grade but I had a kx 85 so I was experienced with riding I could pin the bike on tracks so I'm not completely new to riding now I'm 6,2 190 I was contemplating what bike to get, should I go with a yz 125 or should I go with a yzf450, I would never sell the 450 prob have it forever thank you tell me your opinions plz!!
Briefly---I have a 230L, love it but want more and now just bought a 230f and am excited by the three rides I've done in and around Tecate so far. I'm overwhelmed by the suspension mod choices available, most of which are expensive. I don't want to throw money at the bike without knowing how it rides after spending $$$. My suspension is stock and I'm considering fork and rear shock upgrades. I would love to get even the briefest of rides on anyone else's bike who has done any of the following:
1.Emulators or new damping rods and rebuild
2. Steering stabilizer /damper
3. Either the Works, Fox , or the other (Hein sp?) shock
4. A reputable shop in town who has done these mods before. Mark at DMC is where I've been going for routine stuff.
I'm pretty sure I'm not up for finding an entire other set of forks from another model and fitting them. Too complicated for my patience level and old man riding style. Unless you know the shop/guy who can do it all.
Can I buy anyone a beer to let me ride around the block on their bike? I've been reading up about other peoples opinions on their suspension upgrades and it just isn't enough for me. I'd really appreciate a hand-on experience. Thanks in advance for any help.
I understand that I'm going to sound like a complete rookie on this one. How do you tell if you have an aftermarket kit done to the front forks? I just recently pickup up an 05 yz450f and on one of the forks it has a (1) fast lap racing suspension sticker on 1 of the forks. The guy appeared to go alittle sticker happy with this thing before I got it. Runs good and the front end feels great but I've never had anything aftermarket suspension done to any of my other bikes. Any tell tale signs aside from the feel? Thanks.
