Endurance will give you the most bang for your buck.
I am not a fan of 4 strokes, but a KLX110 with a KX65 front end would be a great start for F7. You can race up any class as well. If I were building an F7 bike, I would debore a KX65 to 50cc, or to 60cc for F6.

Sprinting is fun, but endurance racing will teach you more, give you more seat time, and the biggest grin factor!

150R!

F7 will be the best class for a beginner, but F5 will have the biggest grid.

For F7, it will depend on what you are comfortable on. If you are taller, a klx110 may be too small. I would suggest a CRF/XR 100 then. If you can fit on a klx110, that is probably the best platform for F7.

F5, kx65 all the way. Best chassis and lots of options with the motor. Also probably the cheapest way to go.

TTR 125 is a nice bike for F6 also.

Really just depends on what you can get your hands on, and get a good deal on. Any of the TMGP bikes can be made to run quick, just depends on how much money you want to spend.

How in the world do u debore an engine? Add a sleeve?

Get a xr100 that's usually what I see for sale as minitards. But it could be for a reason......

150R? - uneligible to run in Endurance, only eligible for one class (Unlimited)
YSR50? - dying class, need proof? Come out to "any race weekend" Most we ever had were 3, lol so yea you will podium pretty much every time you race.
NSR50? - still surviving, but unforunately on the TMGP tracks (Denton/Katy) the motards tend to shine more..
NSF100? - "same as above", that and there are only 1-2 that show up all year long..

WOW...

Here's the low down without BS..

F7 - CRF100 or KLX110
F6 - TTR125
F5 - KX65

oops, yeah, add a sleeve.

The KX65 seems to be the best bike on the grid. Easily upgraded, and a comfy and competent chasis. Your learning curve will be steeper in F5, but go for it man. Get the 2 smoker.....and talk to me when you do. I'll help you with the upgrades

Thanks for the breaking news Moe! See my above post!

kx65 front end bolts onto the klx with a new steering stem and head bearings. I believe that is all that is needed.

Either way, kx65 is the best TMGP bike, as has been said. Cheap, fast, reliable and will pull the front wheel up with ease!
