Do they have race classes for them where you race? or Do you know of a place where they race the bigger pit bikers
Like the 85cc bikes with air cooled 4 stroke conversions

I'm thinking these YCF's would fit right into the La Photongtown type racing

There’s a couple series around here we race them in. It started at Mini-X in Oklahoma, they have a class called “Maddog” for the bigger pitbikes. That became a big hit and trickled down to some other AX series. Midsouth AX, Fear AX, and Holeshot AX all added a Maddog class for us, along with the usual open pitbike class.

I had a 150f honda, that bike just would not pull a wheelie over anything, not even a twig. My ttr125 would pull a wheelie anywhere.

Ever since i first seen the Langtown Racing, back in 1991 on Motoworld i was in love with it, I have always wondered why that type of racing did not get more popular, the tracks are small and can be made on 1 or 2 acres,

Are them big wheels or little?

Maybe all my friends and I suck at the wheelie thing. but the ttr was not a problem. On the ttr you could just grab throttle and it would come up.

About all I do on this bike is ride wheelies. There is an empty parking lot next door. It’s about 100 yards wide. I run out of parking lot and have to set the front end down.

I agree, 50's, 70's etc are all too small. Big fan of 125 4 stroke bikes, TTR, DRZ, KLX, CRF ect. I'm 6ft, love my DRZ125L. I've seen others install 85cc MX suspension on TTR's and DRZ's. So far I've installed forks and clamps from a RM85, rear shock from a CR85, BBR frame craddle, Pro Circuit exhaust system. Now I'm ordering stiffer springs for the suspension. Engine is still stock for now, but bullet proof. It's an addiction, always wanting more mods. Great bike for friends that don't have a bike and want to ride, or fun for me.

My wfe rides a 150f and you correct,what a dog. Have taught many to ride using that bike.Whan we go camping it's used for tooling around the area of course at a snails pace.

We use 2 rm85 big wheels that the wife and her friends ride as cheap reliable pit bikes.

I’m 6’2” and I love riding my 50. I obviously would barely be able to ride it in stock form, but the challenge of 10” and 12” wheels is what makes it fun. The bigger minis are fun too, but it’s not the same for me. I’m actually building a 110 (194) right now simply because nobody rides 50s anymore. I guess that means I’m in the minority as a 50 fan.

Went on a trail ride on an SSR 150 this weekend and couldn't believe how much fun it was. I am 6'1" #230. Surprisingly tall seat height and capable for what it is.

Capable, yes. Durable? Negative.

Those DRZ’s are cool little bikes. Motor is a lugger. Add an 85 carb to it, cut top of the air box off, and add a Suzuki LT230 Cam. It’s all plug & play. The 85 carb really helps it move. If you need more, just bigbore it, and buy the bigger valves. Then they really move well. Nice bike!

By the way look at that link town track how cool is that track? I think it's better than any pit by track I've ever seen otherwise that look like it was so much fun back in the day I wish I'd a went when I lived in Southern California

Thanks for the tip! Any particular year RM85 carb? I've done some reading, people installing VM26 carbs with varying results. Sounds like 26 carb is too big, a 24 should be just right? Didn't KX65 use a VM24?
Airbox snorkle has been removed. Also the stock gear shifter with linkage is junk. Installed a shifter from a DR125.

They race them at the hell on wheels club in southern California. It is more TT type racing, but it's still fun. Photo

What is that abomination?!?

I wonder why they felt the need to tack on a mid 90's era 125/250 radiator shroud instead of leaving the standard 80/85/100 (whichever base/frame it is) shroud.

The KX80/85/100 tank doesn’t provide enough room for the taller XR80/100 motor. There appears to be a custom tank hidden under those shrouds.
