Little dirt bike loaner?

Anyone have a suggestion where I might find a little dirt bike to loan out to a newbie visiting after Christmas.

Are you lookin' to borrow or buy ? I sold my TW's so they are in Oklahoma but I know a guy selling a 2006 CRF 80 for $850 and a 2006 CRF 100 for $920

Little is a relative term. Could you be more precise?

Borrowin' would be preferred over buyin'
As for size, does size really matter fella's? Oh wait, I know the answer to that one.

Back on track here, I was thinking about something that a 5 footer could touch the ground on and a powerband that is gentle enough to teach clutch usage without giving the " Ashton launch" look.

So that would rule out my KTM 200...unless you want to try it out.

Anyone with an XR 250...that would be the ticket.

XR is still going to be tall, especially for a 5 footer.

Wish we still had the TTR for you to use.


Allyn,

Musselmans says it is a clogged idle circuit. Guess we shoulda hosed it out when we had the jets out.

Like so many, Allyn's tape needs calibration.

You can always find XR 100s cheap.

That should have been a cheap repair.
