    2002 Honda CR125R dirtbike, in excellent condition. The bike has very few hours on it and has never been raced. Trail ridden only and not much at that. I no longer have the time to ride and need the extra space in my garage. The bike is completelly stock and has not been modified in any way. The bike needs absolutelly nothing other than someone to ride it. It cranks up on the first kick everytime. There are a few scratches from riding in the trails and one of the tank stickers has a small piece missing. The tires have 75% tread or better left on them and the chain and sprockets are still like new. The bike cost $5,000 just 3 years ago.

    If it's in the condition he claims, it's worth about 2 grand. Used bikes are definitely a buyer's market right now. Plus, no one wants a 125; everyone wants a 250F, and the CR has the weakest motor of all the 125s.

    A properly jetted 2 stroke will light up faster than a 4 stroke every time.

    Its more than just one kick starting though. Try getting on the throttle with a 4 stroke as fast as you do on the line with your 2 strokes and watch it die 9 times out of 10. Not sure why, probably greater rotational mass, but a 4 stroke needs a little time to settle out before getting on the gas whereas you can jump on a 2 stroke almost immediately. :)

    a 2 stroke vs. a 4 stroke is up to the rider and what he rides i personaly like 2 strokes for the cheapness of parts and the snappyness of it.
