DT 175

  1. hi guys
    ive just picked up a DT 175 of ebay for 330 88" model, its just for a bush basher
    i rode it today and was very impressed for the quality and for so cheap. im not sure how fast one of these things should go , and my 2 mates have a yz250f and a kx125 so im used to race bikes, it goes pretty good, do you have to change the rings on them often and how do i test if they are good without a compression test. 1st gear is very short and torqy and then its just normal , it takes ages to wind up but when you have the space it does,
    should it be alot slower than a race bike?
