3. Test-ride any bike
This is a crucial step to take whether you're shopping for a new, used, or vintage motocross bike. In all three situations, you can't be 100% certain whether a particular motocross for sale bike is right for you until you take it for a spin.

Also, you might find certain "reviews" that are basically subtle advertisements for a particular motocross model. So use your best judgment when surfing the Net to get information about different makes and models of motocross bikes.
The history of YOUR Motocross bike.
You need a full description and a true write up of the MX bike. You don’t need to go to the extent of finding the blueprints of course, but be aware of its genuine history.
Even a reliable Honda motocross bike will have damage if it’s been hard ridden for many years.
Should the owner have maintained it well you might still have a tip-top motocross for sale ride; but the more info you have on the bikes background the better. That’s how you buy a great motocross for sale bike.
Motocross track time
Ok, so you have your used (or new) motocross bike, now it’s time to ride it. When you get onto the track for the first time, go slow, you want to know all the gauges work and the engine feels right.
Is it sputtering, rattling? Or anything else not as it should be? Then begin to open it up, and try a few small jumps, again listen for noises and any juddering.
Always stop and wheel the bike back to the pits if it begins to smoke or make unsavoury noises, you don’t want to cause more damage by riding it. Also don’t get too disappointed if you do have a few niggles first time out – every rider of a used bike has them, so you’ve just joined the club.
