I have a 1997 cr80r expert which besides the big wheels and longer swing arm, is the same thing as a 1996 cr80r. They are very good bikes with excellent top end power but very little down low which requires you to use the clutch a little more. The bikes come stock with Showa suspension and D.I.D rims and if you have been racing for 7 years I think you will be happy with this bike as it is more of a motocrosser than an offroad bike. My bike has not had any major problems yet besides its fork seals leaking,(getting them replaced tomorrow) so I can say it is pretty reliable. If you need any more info on this bike at all, post a reply and I will do my best to answer! :ride:
