What Model Of Dirt Bike Should You Buy
The selection of a dirt bike is never a simple activity but here are some all-important aspects that will help you pick the right bike: Height and weight: Your height as well as weight plays a large role in dirt bike selection. The most critical thing is that one needs to feel comfortable on your bike to be able to drive it across difficult or dirt terrain. The more comfortable you are the better your control on the bike. The important thing is that you should sit on each of the bikes and see if your feet can touch the ground or not. If your feet are touching the ground then it means that you will be able to hold the bike up on both wheels and will also be able to start and stop it safely. Here is something for you to consider: The top women drivers in the motocross circuit are less than 5 feet 4 inches tall and they race 250F and 450F bikes.
We are talking about motorcycles that are larger than the motocross bikes. Now did you get a boost of confidence? Good! Your weight is another important issue. So what you really need to do is lay down your bike on the ground first and then try to pick it up alone. If you are able to do it for a particular bike then thatâ€™s the bike you should consider buying. 4-stroke or 2-stroke: There is quite a lot of difference between a 4-stroke and a 2-stroke bike and most of the difference lies in the way the engine of both the bikes work.
A four-stroke bike will deliver smooth power whereas a 2-stroke bike will deliver power in an abrupt manner. This basically means that 2-stroke bikes are harder to control. If you compare cc to cc and the displacement of the motor then the 2-stroke bike will have more power than the 4-stroke. Both the 2-stroke and 4-stroke bikes donâ€™t need much maintenance. If you buy a 2-stroke bike then you will need to take care of pre-mix gas, which is basically adding oil to gas while maintaining a specific ratio. 4-stroke bikes can easily run on the regular gas but you will need to ensure that the engine oil is changed more often and also the oil filter will have to be changed on a regular basis. Type of track: A lot depends on the type of track you are going to ride on. Of course dirt bike as the name sounds is supposed to run on any dirt track but it is not always the case. There are all kinds of tracks and some tracks can be handled well by 4-stroke bikes while some are handled better by 2-stroke bikes. If you are thinking of riding tracks or motocross then you should ideally look at the 250F race bikes (4-stroke) or even the 125cc (2-stroke).
You will need a bike that is lighter and has a better suspension to enable jumping.
