Go with a TTR 125 or CRF/XR100 and you'll be nearly maintenance free, on a much larger and comfortable chassis than a KX65 or KLX110, and with a tire swap you have a dirt bike for the off-season and weekend. Neither are particularly competitive, but there is always one or two well ridden CRF100 a season that put the spank on F6 and some F5 classes.

TTR125 comes with decent power, some electric start, and a disk on the big wheel versions.

If it's your first mini, go with low maintenance, easy resale, lot of them on the grid.

A 1985 XR100 is identical to a 2010, except for bodywork. They are easy and cheap to upgrade. If not hopped up too much, they go forever. If you decide to go XR, I have a cheap disk brake set-up, 17" excel rim with RM80 forks that bolts right on... I had it machined to fit a CRF100.

Two strokes use up pistons and cranks.

True, but the 4 strokes are slow! (unless modded to the moon)

A TTR might be a better choice than an XR/CRF. F6 should be a pretty competitive grid next year.

2 strokes, although requiring more frequent maintenance, are cheaper to repair than a 4 stroke in most cases. Plus, you can rev a 2 stroke to the moon, unlike a 4 stroke. Besides, you can't highside a 4 stroker nearly as cool as you can a 2 stroker
