If there were racing and a scene here in Utah I'd pick one up tomorrow. They are so dang fun. I rode the heck out of my modded 50 back in early/mid 2000's.

I bought a Ycf about a month ago to chase my kids around at the track.

Id love of the new Hondas but they are quite expensive for being China made. I wish they had actual classes for them at the practice track, or allowed them go out with 85's.

That is a beautiful looking thing. 65cc wheels?

Is that the BigY Factory 150 and which exhaust? I have contemplated going this route rather than continue with 110Ls. I like that you can customize their bikes with custom color parts straight from YCF.

It looks Super nice , how do you like it ?
They are air cooled right?
Is that the same wheel size as a kx85cc?
How would you rate the power , like what does it compare to? An XR200? An 85cc 2 stroke ? Or
And how much do you weigh and how is the suspension,
Lol lotta question Thanks

Did it come with that set up or have you built it up?

I believe that is a YCF BIg Y (either 150 or 190). Then he probably got a different exhaust and plastics/graphics. Wheels may be stock, not sure.

This is just a guess in my book as I was looking at a YCF Big Y 150 not too long ago. Their website is ycf-riding.com, can see all the aftermarket parts they have, certainly cool. The Big Y 150 is $2000, the Big Y 150 Factory is $2500 I believe with a better swingarm, forks, and suspension.

It’s a Ycf bigy 190 Daytona guys. Came exactly how you see it besides the graphics of coarse. Power to weight I would say it feels like a 250f. No exaggeration there. I am 246lbs. I was a 450 b rider. The ergos feel like a big bike. Piranha is made by Ycf. I will get some more pics up. OP if you want me to I will get out of your thread

Thanks for the answers, i seriously think i want 1 of these
I have a SSR125 right now , but i would like to get 1 of these to ride , and ride with my 11 yr old with him on the ssr125

Quality of the parts are good. Other things I did was change most of the Allen head bolts to flange 8mm

|

3/29/2019 6:25 PM

Do they come with the Renthal bars ,
And obviously come with WP suspension, $2500 seems pretty reasonable for that.

|

3/29/2019 7:02 PM

Bought this thing not too long ago, it was stock as a rock when I got it. I’ve done most cosmetic stuff, but suspension will definitely be done before summer time. Anyone know of races going on in the NW this year?

I wish but no. Comes with Engi forks. Which are replicated off of Showa. Supposedly the crf150r 20mm valve are a direct replacement internally. I see no reason to change it for now though. I put a wp decal on it. The bars are Ycf 1-1/8 with a renthal pad. I know, a lot of posing going on but it’s what I like. Actually for this one brand new is $3500. Shipping was free. They also have the Ycf bigy 190 zong shen. That one has a 5 gear box (one down four up) as opposed to my 4 (all up) Also that one has electric start but is a 2 valve motor not a 4 valve like the Daytona. It produces a couple horsepower less than the Daytona, although I don’t think it would be an issue. Few people have had problems with the electric starter on the zong shen because of a chain from the starter to the gear. As for the price, I wanted what I wanted. A big wheel pit bike with the biggest motor. 212cc kit will be the next purchase and 14/12 wheels.

Why do you want smaller wheels ?
Just wondering

3/29/2019 8:23 PM

Only one track around here runs an outlaw class. The rest are 14/12 classes.

Makes sense. My lower end pitbike has 17/14 wheels, and feels so much better than my old modified KLX110. But if they're against the rules...
Those 170 and 190 pitbikes are are fun little monsters. Mine is a cheaper 125 and it just doesn't have enough low end power.

Oh Good Reason, i have always wondered why
Racing something like these never caught on , ever since langtown in the early 90's ive wondered that, it was fantasy to race there ,
There is A Ktm, Honda , Kawasaki, Yamaha, dealership
Near me , and they also Carry SSR and there are some SSR's that look really similar to that, they have 125, 150, a 189, do you know if they are similar?

Very similar. My friend rides his SSR170 at my place all the time. That thing is badass in every way. All those Chinese pitbikes use similar (if not the same) parts.

I would have to say no. I’ve done a lot of searching mainly looking for quality which landed me on the Ycf ( or piranha). I’m not saying the SSR Tx170 is a bad choice but it is more entry level. I looked at parts like exhaust, brake pedal, shifter, wheels and hubs. I’ve seen and ridden the Ssr. Power was good but felt Chinese. Just didn’t have that “tight” feel.

The Piranha that i got has the 190 Daytona engine. That thing rips! Hard to keep the front tire down in any gear.

3/30/2019 11:30 AM

Yeah those Daytona 190s are monsters

Yeah i Have ssr125 with small wheels and the 1 i have is all around slow, i sat on a ssr 150 ,170, and 189, with bigger wheels , feeks like the Size of An 85 to me , and they felt really comfortable, i would love to race something like that (the little bigger ones) against others on the same size bike.
Do any of you have racing like that in your area?

I haven't kept up with local racing since 2007. Alphado would know more about our local scene. TV Land is the only place close to Erie that I know of with a peewee/pitbike track. Me and a couple friends ride pitbikes with our kids on my track damb near every day the weather cooperates.

MX Acres in Mercer is having a Pitbike Series this year. They are near Mercer, PA.

Ive been thinking about parting ways with my YZ since I dont have anywhere to ride and getting a 110. Some old friends from high school have pitbike tracks and keep inviting me to ride with their group. I was into 50s years ago but theyre so damn twitchy and sketchy on a track. 110 with tall bars would be perfect.
