I have him in the 8th - 11th range in terms of speed, But I think injuries and his consistent starts will push him a few slots higher.

DRZ400 have similar externals, but are open bath. The '96-98 RM are twin chamber forks.

2 year old KLXs? They typically won't budge much from MSRP on those and sell every one.

That's VERY left over. You can't find a KLX like that (too much demand), but if you could it find new stock that old for 30-40% off sticker, that would be the same as 700 in '88 . Consequently, you can nowadays could get something like a Pitster or an ... more »

A Yz85 (updated this year with a power valve and new suspension) is within 10-15% of the cost cpi adjusted of what a CR80 was in the 80s. The RMZ250 discussed is cheaper, cpi adjusted, than the last RM 125. If the "less than a grand" KD80 cost, let's ... more »

Some do, some don't. Either way, the bike is stinking cheap, looks good, is competitive on the track if not the spec sheet, and nobody wants it. So maybe cheap isn't the answer.

$6300 sticker after mfg rebates. Steep dealer discounts available off of that. Competent, reliable, no-frills bike that needs only set up to race against anybody (has won stock class at Loretta's). Looks Great. They can't give them away.

Suspect all let lose on thier fabbed cradles. Note none of the manufacturer built bikes of any make have a mid frame failure like all of those. There also appears to be some aftermarket triple clamp failures in there.

Year 2 AD (after Dungey), and we have three returning SX Champions and three other class veterans who you could argue are due... And I question every one of their abilities to get the job done.
