2006 125cc Pit Dirt Bike Motor Trail Thumpster

  1. If it's a chinese one make sure it is a Ducar engine. It is a good idea to have a single rear shock with conventional traily swing arm style too as you can then upgrade the shock from most bike places to a heavier duty item for us big kids.

    Oh yeah and the 110-125cc 4 strokes are wickid fun, my cousin owns one and they are a ball.
  2. We got a couple of 125's just after christmas.

    Be aware that you get what you are paying for.

    If you do get one, go over it with a fine tooth comb before riding.

    Replace sprocket, existing bolts with high tensile (?) and put a decent quality o-ring chain on. Check the air filter that it does actually seal and get one with an aluminium frame. If you sieze the motor, a new one is about $400.

    My husband is a mechanic, not me, so I could have left a few things off :grin:

    We have a blast on these things and are looking at getting two more for the big kids :LOL:
  3. Heh, why not get in touch with Atomik direct, you might get a lower price than off ebay.

    600 bucks for a 125cc fun machine... Now that's got me thinking. Damn you.

    /Are there any that are rated for 120 kilo riders? heh.
  4. I bought the first one on ebay, and when I rocked up to Atomik to pick it up I got another two. They wouldn't go any less than $900, (the one I got from auction was about $850), and that was for buying the three of them. They usually sell them for $1,200 out of the warehouse.

    Loz I think you might be a bit too big for one...our 13 year snapped his frame clean in half on the weekend. (He reckons he's going to try out for Crustys :shock: ) On closer inspection, the welding at the top of the frame was a bit dodgy.
