The bike is not slow or underperformed like the 50cc, so they will truly love the increase in performance and speed. These bikes don’t go too fast to cause a lot of worry in parents and kids, so that is another plus point in favour. 85cc motor bikes are all two stroke bikes, but some companies have discontinued the production of these bikes. Honda is an example of a company that has discontinued its two stroke selection. The 85cc bikes are low cost and they don’t take up too much in terms of performance, so many people preferred buying these.
If you have deep pockets and would like to provide your kid with the best ride handling and performance, than the 150cc would be the ultimate purchase. However, not everyone is ready to start off big, so the 85cc should start it. All 85cc dirt bikes are meant to be raced with and not just driven. If you see someone who is selling a used 85cc, you need to do some work before you go into the purchase. Firstly, always make sure to test drive the bike before you hand over the money. Test driving includes the whole bike check-up as well. Look into the parts and see whether it needs maintenance work, because there is a high chance that it would.
85cc dirt bikes don’t really have power valves so they will hit harder on bumps and tracks. When you are driving the bike off track, you will notice every single bump on the track. Due to the lack of power in the engine, it does not have a lot of acceleration. If you are going up a track through rugged grounds, it is important to be able to accelerate when you want to. With the 85cc motor, accelerations is bit a delayed. Kawasaki and Suzuki both make excellent 85cc bikes, which are amazing for races. As mentioned earlier, those just starting off on the bike should get an 85cc, as it has the right amount of everything.
Maintenance is a major issue for motocross bikes, so you always need to keep it in good condition. Focus on keeping your bike clean by washing it all the time. If you wash it after and before a motocross race, it will be clean all the time. After a wash, you can use an air compressor to dry it off or simply start the engine. When the engine is turned on, the dirt bike carburetor and engine will dry off together. When replacing parts on your bike, it is important to know where you are removing the parts from. If you are not sure of what you are doing, simply ask a mechanic or someone who is knowledgeable.
