You are getting some good insight from the fellow inmates and nearly all the advice is spot on. A mild motor is faster at the end of hare scramble or enduro. Think carefully about reworking a motocrosser, once you get done with a suspension revalve, detuning and taming the motor, a large tank, lighting(?), chain/sprocket gearing and protective gear it gets expensive and time consuming. Some Pro riders can race a MX-based bike in the woods, the rest of us are looking at a trip to the hospital when an aggressive powerband explodes in tighter trail. A novice / C class racer can be very competitive on a well setup lower budget bike, it is 80% rider skill 20% bike.

A watchdog computer is a dedicated enduro timekeeping computer (about $300), and says a lot about how the previous owner was using the bike and how he set it up. An enduro bike is competitive for hare scrambles, the reverse is not always true.
