A KX65 motard seems to be very popular. Easy to work on and once they are setup, they handle very good as well. Most of the guys run the 12" Bridgestones and get a whole season on one set.

that thread has lots of info on TMGP with info on the bikes and classes...
for instance the bike in the add Rob posted is listed to race f4 where he is, but in TMGP it would be an F7 bike.
Several of us on here race TMGP and if we can help let us know.

IMO it would be best to do an F7 bike to begin with your first year...cheaper bikes, more riders...
then once you get into it, if you really like it, you can add another bike like the kx65 to get faster...I am enjoying the out of my crf100... raced it stock for 3 races, then put a 115 kit in it... now considering changing the front end out to get disc brakes...lots of ways to go, just depends on how serious you are about winning and how much money you want to spend.

Good stuff, obed I remember seeing this that thread I forgot about it.
One of the main reasons why I wanted some info is I want to get into tmgp next year when i can afford to buy a track worthy mini ( xr100) and get it all pimped out for racing. Second reason is I keep running across good deals on minis and I want to buy em to keep and play with but I have too many as it is. There fore if you see me selling minis in the near future, its cause I'm trying to save up for a nice track mini, not trying to hoard them all. Thanks for the info

with the right suspension that xr50 with the 108 would do good in f7.. there have been some fast 50/70's out there and i know one of them had the trailbikes 108 kit in it.

i am not familiar with the kx80 so I can not comment on the particular bike.

i think the motard race is an open race for all legal motard sizes, even then the bike would be limited to 2 sprint races on a given race weekend... and if there were not at least 2 other unlimited bikes present, the motard race would be the only race it could run in....
that is one reason i suggest that a new racer get an f7 bike, there will always be races to participate in, and most f7 bikes with a decent rider can be competitive in f6

once you get a season under your belt and see what the competition is like you can then do what you feel is best in the way of mods or second bike...
i left mine completely stock for 3 races and ran super sport, F7 and F6 and had a blast... then I put the kit in it which meant i could no longer do supersport, but that left plenty of race choices in F7, F6, Motard, heavyweight and dinosaur class.

sure but I cant see spending money to set-up a bike that you can only race in 2 races, tmgp is cheap racing but is not cost effective if your only riding a couple classes, any race after ur third is only 5 bucks. also if you decide to endurance your bike will not be legal

Sprint Race Costs
1st race 35
2nd race 25
3rd race 15
Any after the 4th race is only 5 bucks

I can race my klx in 13 different races more if it was stock or I was over 40.. I typically run 6-8 races on a given sprint day and if I wanted to endurance it I could

not trying to discourage you, if the bike is already set-up race it but wheels, tires and suspension arent cheap for any bike
