125 pit bikes
The fun of 125cc pitbikes.
Getting 125 pit bikes, isnt a hard task but it is a precarious one. For instance cheap pit bikes, are not normally that cheap and if you see one very inexpensive ask yourself why?
Is the bikes engine running or could the seller be hiding something from you? In worst cases it could even be stolen.
Marvellous 125cc Pit Bikes
Looking at 125 pit bikes can be a great deal of fun but an awesome, almost overwhelming job when you're ready to purchase. At first appearance, they all look great but you'll probably fall in love with the Yamaha YZ125 or another great bike, the Kawasaki KX125. These are both great for riding and racing.
The Yamaha YZ125 corners easily and because it's a two stroke, requires you to pay close attention to your gear selection. The Yamaha YZ125 has a liquid cooled 2-stroke engine, six speed transmission and disc brakes.
The lightweight 208-pound body has a nice open mid section that makes it comfortable for those as tall as six foot or slightly taller. The bike takes corners with ease and provides a great training bike for someone wanting the experience but not ready to fork over the cash for a larger bike.
The Kawasaki KX125 made some major changes in 2004 and 2005 that made the bike more competitive and one of the best selections for 125 pit bikes. They changed the design of the bike that made it more comfortable and less cramped for the rider. This improved the rider's ability to corner.
For the beginning rider the bottom-end and mid power is great but those looking for massive high-end power will find that the Yamaha YZ is slightly better. The changes in the Kawasaki also made flat end corners far easier and gives the rider a lot more confidence than the older models did.
Advantages of 125cc engines.

Lighter riders too benefit from a dirt bike 125 cc, plus you don’t have to be as skilled as these bikes give you time to avoid a dirt bike crash (mostly). But they don’t have so little power that you find each jump wondering if you'll manage to reach the other end.
