250/300 2T or 250 4T for offroad use only. 450 if you want street manners. My 300 2T is miserable on the street, but the plate got the job done for trails that required it. I'll go poke around on it for 5-10 minutes on the street and then i'm ready to ... more »

Not Tech 7's. Bought mine just over a year ago, have 1 solid season on them. Currently getting the soles replaced. Not so annoyed soles are worn out, but between me shipping them to get re-soled and getting them back, i'm at nearly $200. After this repair ... more »

Added reply in a thread Are the Fuel Injected two strokes worth it? 6/11/2020 5:16 PM

Have you ridden modern 2 strokes? My Beta 300 is very linear with out a huge hit. Rideability is the best out of any bike i've owned previous. I think the OP will find that with most newer 2 strokes aimed towards offroad. I like the simplicity of the ... more »

Buy a 2019 used bike with low hours. I paid just over $5k for my 2017 YZ250F in early 2018 that had 5 hours and not a single scratch or sign of wear on it. Sold it a year later with probably 35 or so hours for a ~$400 loss to a member on here. You'll ... more »

What type of trailer? My father is running a 2x6 wrapped in carpet that butts up against 2 things in the trailer and then runs straps to the pre-installed hooks. No issues with the big bikes or dirt bikes this way.

If you're already $4k into a bike + another $1200 minimum for a wheel/tire set the options for a dedicated street legal supermoto has way better options out there depending on uses. For a mix of uses, definitely a good option. The KTM LC4 engines are ... more »
