I have a chance to pick up a 2001 65sx and a 2002 KX65 for close to the same price (KX is more) and wanted to know which would make the best trail/occasional race bike. My son is 10 and this bike will likely be passed down to his 2 younger brothers when hes done with it. He currently rides a XR70 and I want him to learn to shift with a clutch. Are the bikes similiar maintenance wise? We had a KTM 50SX a couple years ago and it was a maintenance nightmare. Any input would be appreciated.
