Kx125 good for track?

Got a guy wanting to trade for my non running 450. Would thus make a good sumo track ?

I would venture to say that there are many other MX bikes that would make a better sumo. Like your 450.. lol

I'll guess no. In motard trim, I geared my kx250 to 95mph, and it will do it, barely, and it will almost stall coming out of first since first and second are so close it makes it a chore to get into first, and then second is pointless, on pavement at least. I don't see the 125 being any fun on anything other than a kart track, or maybe parking lot tracks.

Have chad do the work for you. I would have done that in the first place. That or buy a nother 450. I have seen them go for what it would cost you to build one. then you can just have spacers made to fit your wheels on the new bike.
I thought you bought a new 450? Husky 450 that was street legal.

That is a track bike made to be street legal. If it was mine it would hardly be put on the street due to maint.

i think a 2t supermoto would be a blast, but i really like 2strokes. i'd go for a 250 over a 125 though.

What good is it if you dont ride it. Go take it down a dirt road and dump it already. Put that thing to use.

That's exactly what I was going to type but didn't want to sound like a . LOL. It really does help get over the new bike feeling if you just slide that down a dirt road.
