You could probly ride a full size bike ok. "Very cheap" usually ends very expensive.

He wants to hear: Go buy the time bomb 250f, you will instantly be faster! Upkeep, buying used, and coming off an 85,,,,, Go 2 stroke!!!!! How tall is 175cm??? 13? You really do not need to race a 125 till you are 15. If you are tall enough now, go ahead and start riding it, not racing, yet! Can you finish top 5 out of 40 riders in your age class on the 85? A year or 2 on the 125, maybe mod it up to a 144, or go to the 4 stroke(if they are still around?)

Metric years, I asked first? An FIM racer? They still have the 4 stroke handi-cap rule in effect, tht sucks! Yes, you would be better off on the 250f. Buying used, I would tear it down and check the top and bottom ends! But, I still believe a 144 is competitive.

Where did you get that he's an FIM racer?
he's obviously not in the US or Canada, so he's probably not in the AMA or CMA, thus, he could very well be an FIM racer.

I'm not sure what they belong to or how their rules stack up down in the land of Oz

Why do you have to race against a 250f if you get a 125? Local ama that sanctions 98 percent of the races around here, undone the worst ruling in motorsports, the 4 stroke handi-cap. The fim still goes by it though, Europe and Canada. 125 races against ? But the 250f guys race against 250 2 strokes. Paybacks. Who sanctions your races? Makes the rules? The 4 stroke will be easier for most to ride faster. The 125 can make you a better racer. Its better in the corners, and in the air. If your club allows you to mod the 2 strokes to 144's, good bye 4 stroke advantage. The 2 stroke will be cheaper to maintain. What country do you live in, New Zealand? Sure thought the fim had you also.

Until you become a lot more experienced the bike isn't going to make a bit of difference. Whatever you ride will be slow because you are learning, and learning to be fast takes time. So learn to ride the wheels off the bike you have, THEN start worrying about the "best" bike.

It is odd telling a 13 year old to go for a 125. BUT, you are too tall for an 85! I am 1 inch shorter than you. I can ride the piss out of an 85, till it comes to jumping and some corners, not enough room! You want to race? Your size would make racing an 85 dangerous for you. You need a bigger bike, yes! Who sanctions your races? I thought the fim was down there also? Australia's flag is very similar to New Zealand's! In your information, it shows your flag, then it says you do not know where you live? And if, and when you get older, you will start getting shorter, too many years of gravity? Are you any good at basketball?

don't worry about what the FIM is.

Buy a 125. You are obviously not ready for a 250F.
