Mini moto advise required to race on TMGP

I am interested in start racing mini motard at TMGP specifically at GCKI track. I have a CR85 that I was thinking to convert to a motard but now reading the rules at TMGP website I can only run in Unlimited class (I donít know how fun is this class) and I canít do any endurance race so I am thinking to sell my CR85 and get a 65 size bike. I would like to stay in the 2 strokes world but any other bike suggestion will be considered. I have been trying to contact TMGP staff to get some info but I havenít had luck getting and answer back. What bike, based in your experience would you recommend to me. I am 6í-2Ē tall and 220 pounds. I am in between the Kawa KX65, KTM 65 SX or Kawa KLX 110 4 strokes. Can you run the KTM 65SX with the stock front brakes?. Any help/orientation would be appreciated.
Thanks.

I'm your size and I felt way too crammed up on the small frame bikes.

I loved racing my CRF100 in F7 & the F6 races.

Thanks. I was concern about it because I went to Wild West to see them and I felt the bike small for me as you said but having your opinion makes me think I will have to go with 4 strokes.... Sad because I love 2 stroke bikes.

It was nice meeting and talking with you at the races last weekend. Please come out and ride some different bikes sometime to see what suits you. I am the one with the GROM and Rob78 is the one there with his son and two KLX's.

It was very nice meeting you as well. Many thanks for all the info. I have my CR85 in this web and craiglist for sale. If I don't sell it in a short period of time, I will keep the bike, convert it and start racing since the bike is in like new condition. I know it will be only legal in 2 classes but It will be better than nothing.

Thanks, was nice seeing you again too. Thanks for all the info. As soon as I sell my bike I will have bunch of questions looking for the right bike. I have been looking at the SSR 110. They run cheap and a set of motard wheels for them are only $250. I saw a couple of them at the track and they were running good. But if My bike doesn't sell then I will convert my Cr85.
Regards

Plans changed, was only supposed to be here for 2years, but my company got sold and all my plans fell apart. Looks like another 2 years here. Going to be upgrading to a crf150 or from as the series getting started here have different classes more aligned to what Josh Herrin is doing on the east coast.
