    KX 100 a good enduro bike?

    Is a KX 100 a good enduro bike stock? I know that it is a motocross bike but people say that it can be a good woods bike. I really wouldnt want to spend that much money on it if it does turn out to be a good woods bike. And I REALLY don't want to go and buy one and it turn out to be a REALLY bad woods bike. I have a few quick questions.

    1. Does it have good down low power?

    2. Could I go 20 miles on one full tank of gas?

    3. Can it keep up with a 200 and a 220 (both 2 strokes)?

    yes if you aren

    I rode my friend's wife's bike(kx100) and I was impressed. I am 220 lbs and it carried me better than expected. It was a short ride just to play around. It wasn't bad for a 100.

    It can easily get 20 miles riding out of a tank... but really.. It isn't fair trying to compare a 100 to a 200.

    I guess if you are not very tall and you are quite light build-wise , and you got a cheaper price. .. That could be good. .. or if you ride ugly muddy nasty tight stuff and you don't need to climb long uphills...It is nice and light. If you have to push and carry It is an advantage there.

    Good luck. hope this helps a little.

    My finacee has one with a Steahly 12 oz. FWW that she rides in the woods. She got it as a step up from a CRF 100, and she is not sure it was a good choice.

    1. No small bore 2T has "good" down low power. It has more power down low than an 85, but it is still a small bore 2T.

    2. Yes.

    3. Depends on who is on them. If Lafferty is on the KX100, then yes, easily. If comparable riders are on them, then no way. The 200 and 220 will have larger tires and wheels and way more torque.
