    it depends on your height, weight, strength, and ability...do you have any experience riding dirt bikes, quads or 2 wheelers? also, what is the problem with yamaha yz's...

    The 80s with the most updates and high tech stuff this year (2002) are the Suzuki and the Yamaha. Just bought a 2002 YZ85 for my son. All of the 125s are good, including Husqvarna and KTM with the KTM having the hottest engine. Of course Yamaha makes the YZ250f 4-stroke which races in the 125 class, and if you not tall enough for a 125 but too big for an 80, Kawasaki makes a KX100.

    There are very few in the area of them. But theres not a bigger problem tha that. I have just got a moped for now. Im about 170cm tall and 65Kg heavy.

    Conversion please! Going from a moped to an mx'er is a big jump. It makes a difference on how tall you are. You might be to tall for an 80, I'm trying to convert your height as we speak. I think you should go with the 125, sounds like you are around 5'10" or so, definately too big for an 80.

    Thats the problem. A 80s engine is suitable but the bike is too small...

    143 lbs is a good weight for a 125. i am just under 150 lbs and it moves me around pretty good. in the last dirt rider magazine they had a weight chart and i think 130-160 lbs was good for a 125, and anything bigger than that it was time to pick up a 250

    What about a YZ125? They have been the king of the 125 class since 96. They fell of the top last year but after all the reports I have read about the 2002 they look poised to take the top spot again!! Go team BLUE!!
