Man oh man I wish I could.
My dream bike is a DRZ400SM.
Or an XR650 with the street rims and tires.

But, I dont have the $8000 to put up for one.

Ive had a 2001 XR400R, which was a dream. But again money was tight so I needed to let it go.

I just want something cheap and fun!

my friend had an SDG 110, had some issues, mainly cause the previous owner beat the hell out of it and never bothered to do any maintenance, but we got it cheap, had fun with it for a while and then sold it for like 200 more, fun little bike

so I drove it around some to build up the battery, parked it.
a week later I tried ... it would not start
I took the air filter loose and it cranked
a few days later I tried again ...it will not start no mater what I do
I put on a new fuel filter...still won't crank. it is firing good...
I took the air intake hose off ... spray a little gas in the intake,
it kicks over but won't crank up....
I think it is just not getting gas
any ideas ?
what dose this have to do with a pit bike?

BBR motorsports makes a production pit bike that looks pretty cool for $4300. I stick to my CRF250 i always hurt myself on the little bikes.

I found a 1986 Honda CT110 for $150 on CL.
Couldnt pass it up!
They have a huge following, alot of parts available, and they use the same motors as all the rest of the pitbikes!
