Im just starting out, (switching from a quad) I think Ive made up my mind, I am looking @ a 1997 yz125 in PERFECT condition ~w~ Pro C pipe/silencer, Pro Action susp, V-Force reeds, Mikuni f/s carb & One Ind. yellow plastic with hurricane graph's (really cool btw) and painted frame, most stock parts included... I think I can get it for $1700, Good deal? or not.
I will start with a 125, and after I grow out of the power switch to a 250, but so far am SO excited about dirtbikes :)

Later.

Hi there Mark
If I were you I would contemplate on getting a 4-stroke as you are a beginner instead of a 2stroke, as they can be quite vicious. But if you think you would be able to handle a 125 I think $1700 would be a good deal.

Awesome deal. Weird how the graphics off of the old Yamaha's could look so cool.

Thanks guys, Ill be riding in a gravel pit ~w~ another slightly modded yz125 & a stock yz426, what mods after the mods I listed would be best, would a p&p and head work add a noticable amount of performance?

Also any riding tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
