If you're planning to race get a 125. You're plenty big enough for a 125 and at 16 you are in the last year you would be eligible to race Supermini already so after this you'd be racing 125's and 250F's on that KX100 in 125C.

Unless you've got some really short legs, you're going to be cramped on a KX100. I'm 5'4, 125lbs, 29" inseam and I could use another inch or two, and that's after installing Tag T2 Top & Bottom Triple Clamps with Stem and Moose high bend bars. I'm considering some Fastway F3 pegs.

i am 5' 5'' and a 125 is perfect for me. i have to lean it over a little bit but i will grow into it. i love my kx125.

you should be able to find them easy. kawasaki stopped making 125's in 2005. you can find a good used one for cheap usually if you do some looking
