    Hey

    Think about saving a bit and getting a older crf50 with some mods if you want a 10/10 that is.

    I agree with nicko451, put it off for a bit and save more. worth it in the long run. If you buy a cheapy you'll be spending on parts that break, and it all adds up.

    This thread so NEEDS TO BE CLEANED UP ! ! !

    Okay, why have you chosen a 140cc? How old are you and what sort of riding experience do you already have?

    You've picked two pretty similar bikes and then a bigfoot...probably need more info from the above before we'd know which bike is better for you. Also what is your budget and does that include your cost for helmet, boot, etc...

    Nicko makes a good point about saving for a better quality bike as the above bikes will most likely need upgrades sooner and depending on weight you might have parts that break(rear shock blowing out), so there will be a high cost for on going maintenance than if you buy something that already has a better quality set up... like adjustable forks and shock.

    Ok now that we know what you want this is my suggestion

    Just a suggestion if you want more power, you may want to consider getting a 150, because the set from a 140 to 150 is pretty good. (way more responsive)
    This is only a suggestion but you might want to look into it, even if you get an older model.
    I know this from experience with a PitPro Xr150 and my mates Xr140. Mine romps all over his. :p
    I picked up my bike second hand for $500 (an absolute steal)

    But you might want to spend the extra money on something with better suspenion as Rach88 has suggested.

    Cheers Jono

    Um not really sure about DHZ, never rode one before so i couldn't tell you, but i know that they have a wide range of spares and they are really good to deal with.

    My Pitpro is extremely reliable, first kick most of the time, even when its cold its surprising, the only reason for that is because i treat it so well.

    I clean and oil the air filter after every ride, check and change the oil reguarly, and i treat it with respect and dont thrash it. I clean it all the time aswell

    I hear of all the guys that bag china bikes, saying that they are shit and they break down easy. This isn't always the case, imean sure they may not be built aswell and the quality of the parts arn't as good but thats ok if your not doing huge arse jumps.

    Cheers Jono

    Okay so few years means you have some decent throttle control. So 150cc or 160cc is going to be a better choice. There isn't much power difference between a 125cc and 140cc, so you'll most likely upgrade to the 140 and be disappointed.

    150cc or 160cc... from dhz this is probably closest to your price range:
    DHZ DPRO 160 - DHZ Mini Moto

    I personally don't recommend pitpro's and also have heard of issues with the rear shock.

    If you do want a big wheeled bike and want to get bikes from a good seller with good quality bikes look at this bike CX140L MINI

    Other then that i don't really think there is much else to look at unless you are willing to save a bit longer and look at like some higher quality ciniworx or a revmx.

    this offer is now nearly 2 weeks old so you'd probably need to either get in quick or put a deposit down to secure one of the last bikes as i'm sure they wont be this cheap again

    http://www.miniriders.com.au/minibike-reviews/27888-revolutionmx-ttr-style-155z-wait-over.html
    read thru this review to get an idea of the quality the revmx offers... unlike some of the cheaper brands like atomik and pitpro this bike will have far less issues than any bike you can buy from them.
    plus the spares kit will be or is second to none as it says in the review suppliers needed to be sorted back then for chain and air filter, but even with just the jetting kit, tubes, oil filter and butt plug (muffler plug :p) its still great.
