    dont pay it then. I spose auctions will come back when there is profit to be made. Low aussie dollar pushes up initial purchase price and shipping(for pitpro) ..gotta make the cash to stay open thats just usual business! no use putting auctions up if they are only gooin to make $50 a bike wouldnt be worth it

    but i broke the 140 engine by riding with boots i think. but 2nd gear went in it.. so it has a yx 150 in it now.

    but i ride it as if im racing my 250.. and nothings broke yet.. quite impressed

    yeah fun bikes, i picked mine up for about $850-$900 with pro tapers but had to pay a pick up fee think about $20-40,the bike is well worth the money, its worth the asking price, but i think $1000-$1100 is a fair offer or maybe hold out for a second handy.

    Im 5ft 11, its not cramped for me, ive had at least 2hr riding sessions and not had any probs, i have the pro taper low handlebars, thinkin of getting the higher rise ones to give that little bit more height when standing. Other people my height might have a different opinion but i also have a z50J and thats less roomier so compaared to that its great for a small bike. Just think, if you get something bigger it takes the fun out of it, its the whole point. Oh also my mate is a litle over 6ft and he loves my pitty, if you stand up a lot definately piss off the standard low bars.

    good luck.

    Thought I would give this review template a go :)

    Front Suspension: Heavy duty USD front forks (longer travel than stock)

    Rear Suspension: Genuine Fast Ace shock, heavy duty spring, special edition,
    adjustable compression and preload

    Max Speed: 100km/h (depends on rider weight, and conditions)
    Maximum Output KW/HP: 2HP (7500 +/- 500r/min)
    Maximum Torque NM: Max. Power & Rotating Speed: 8.0kw/7500r/min

    Who This Bike Is For: This bike I believe is for people who love riding round tracks, jumping and anything in between. It's a great fun bike and puts out a large amount of power, plenty for what I use it for. Any ages could start on this bike as its easy to learn on and once your skills progress the bike will still please you.



    Price: $1299

    Notes: This is my first bike in which I have no owned for roughly 8 months. It has served me good and no major problems have surfaced. The only troubles I've had was the spark plug blew and the carby and jets inside had to be cleaned out. When I think about it this bike has been excellent and very reliable so far. I expected problems to be popping up here and there seen as most pitbikes are china etc.. but again, nothing major has occured. I have had a heap of fun with it, riding with my neighbour around our tracks, and it held up well when I took it up to my mates farm.

    Here are some pictures and a video of the bike and me riding:

    oh thanks for that.
    yeh I was just copy pastingoff the pitpro site and do you have a clue why they do that?
    tell you its a lifan when its a yx.
    dad has a theory that the head or whatever its called is yx but the main section is a lifan, like where the flywheel is?
    what do you think

    ohhh and while your reading this, I went out today to buy some offset feeler gauges to do my valve clearances.

    we went to super cheap auto, repco and another large auto store but cant remember the name.

    we could find the offset ones but none of them went down to .003
    the lowest one was .005

    the only gauges that went down to .003 were non-offset.

    im guessing you have bought some, if so where did you get them from?

    you don't need offset ones, they're flexible.... just to confirm, by offset you mean bent tip right?

    No the motor is 100% YX 140, lifan 140 bottom end has the oil cooler fed from the crankcase, weak kickstart gears and a different color flywheel

    they apparently started out with the lifan 140 but got too many broken motors coming back so they switched, they might just be too lazy to update the specs. another theory is because of the lifan 125's great reputation the general public are led to believe the lifan 140 is a superior motor, so they advertise it as lifan to get the popularity

    yeh offset do have the bent tip to them

    well without dads permission I tried a while ago using the non-offset ones and it did just snap
    but, was probably bending it more than I actually needed...

    ok, scingy pitpro
    lying isnt good for their reputation if it is the case
    lol
    thanks anyway.
