you'd be alot better off getting a 4-stroke for practice on.. those small 2 stroke are going to be alot more difficult to practice on because of the power delivery of those little 2 stroke engines especially as big as you are. ttr125 or crf150 or something like that..

well ya compared to a full size bike.. but the cr80 or yz80 are also kids bikes, just racing kids bikes. These 2 strokes will have alot less torque than those 4 strokes.. they will be overall faster but will have less torque and in my opinion would be considerably harder to practice slow wheelies. I've ridden both bikes and used to own a cr80 for a few years. But that's out of my opinion and my experiences on those bikes.

that's also why you see alot more guys stunting with 4 stroke bikes over 2 strokers. hope that helps you out
