2020 Honda CRF110F

The Honda CRF110F hit the market in 2013 as the second-smallest trailbike in Big Red’s lineup. A mellow powerplant and low seat height make this Honda an ideal platform for youngsters, yet can easily be modified into a tricked-out pit bike for adults.

2020 Honda CRF110F Reviews, Comparisons, And Competition

Our colleagues over at Dirt Rider attended the intro for the Honda CRF110F when it was an all-new model back in 2013. The year after, they conducted a full review of the bike as well. The CRF110F has enjoyed some changes since then, so we may have to revisit it and put one of our youth test riders on the 109cc trailbike to see how it performs in the new decade.

Some competitors of the 2020 Honda CRF110F include the 2020 Yamaha TT-R110E and the 2020 Kawasaki KLX110. With a retail price of $2,399, the CRF110F is $100 more than the TT-R110E and KLX110.

Honda CRF110F Updates For 2020

Although the Honda CRF110F is unchanged for 2020, it received several updates in 2019 including a Keihin electronically controlled fuel-injection system, a new twin-spar steel frame, and different bodywork.

WTB "In Between" Kids Bike

:tabMy daughter had a hard time with the clutch on the XR80R because of the reach. Also, the XR80R is actually taller than the CRF110F which I got her later. She likes the 110. She turns 13 Saturday and she can still ride it, but she is starting to get a little cramped in the legs. My son is 11. He has ridden the XR80R and had fun, but he doesn't want to mess with the clutch yet. He really likes the TTR110E we got from Pkiser this Spring. It is basically an identical bike to the CRF110F. Both are electric and kick start. Both have 4 speeds. Both are the same physical size. My 9 year old daughter can ride the 110s, but is a little intimidated by it. She still prefers the TTR50E. I'd like to get her on the 110s though so I could sell the 50 and have one less bike taking up space in the garage. It would be cool if the 110s were also available with a clutch and a slightly closer reach than that of the XR80R. I do want all of them to learn the clutch.

Here's the thread about her experience with the XR80R - I think she was 9-1/2 at the time.

:tabI think if I were to spend a little time with her now, she'd probably have no issues with the XR80R once she got the hang of the clutch and shifting.

Here is a thread with a bunch of pics of her on the 110 when she was a little over 10.

Here is a thread for a trip this past April with pics of all the kids riding. Sarah (12) is on the red Honda CRF110, Daniel (10) on the blue TTR110E, and Rachel (8) on the blue TTR50E, and me on the XR80R.

This is from that thread,

It gives a decent idea of how the 80 is actually bigger than the 110s. It is also faster even though it is only an 80. Has to be gearing. The 110s can be lugged but the 80 has to be revved.

A few months ago I bought a Honda CR F110 dirt bike for my son Ruger. I had already purchased another dirt bike for his brother, and he was ready for a dirt bike of his own.

Overall, my review is that the CRF110 dirt bike is probably the best overall dirtbike out there for a kid who is between 7 and 12 years old.  This dirt bike is not a racing dirt bike, but it is very powerful and is capable of climbing steep hills powering over rocks and trees and pretty much anything most kids will want to do on a dirt bike.  It’s really a great dirt bike for anyone who just wants a reliable, relatively inexpensive bike they can use for off-roading on or even use it on the track.

So here is my full review of the Honda CRF 110 dirt bike.

Sizing for This Bike

The seat height of this dirt bike is 26.4 inches, so it is a good option for any kids between seven and 12 years old. I bought this bike for my eight-year-old son and at first, it felt a little big to him. He preferred the 50cc dirt bike for his first few rides. But after the first two or three trips out, he was ready to take on the 110.

For my son, who is slightly tall for his age, the bike fits him just right at eight years old.  I could see my son continuing to ride this bike until he is 12 or 13 years old.At that point, he would probably be better off with a 150 mL dirt bike.As long as the seat height is right for your son or daughter will be writing this bike, I can recommend it wholeheartedly.

I wrote a full post with a great sizing chart for dirt bikes, and also a complete description on how to know if the dirt bike is properly sized for your kid.

Aside from the height, the weight is another significant concern when purchasing a dirtbike for a kid. This dirt bike weighs 159 pounds which is right in line with the Yamaha and Kawasaki dirt bikes that it competes against.  The Yamaha weighs 8 pounds more and the Kawasaki weighs 4 pounds more.  While 159 pounds is very heavy, it is manageable for the kids after some time. My son is able to pick up the bike when it falls over but it does take him quite a bit of effort.  The other problem with a heavy dirt bike is that as the kids turn, they can sometimes be tipped over as the weight of the dirtbike gets ahead of them.

Long-Term Durability of the CRF110

We have had no reliability issues with this dirtbike.It is actually very well-built.I bought this dirt bike when it was two years old so that I could buy it at a cheaper price.We bought our bike for $1400.The bike had been used pretty regularly biopharming family who owned it before us.

The only things we have done to this dirtbike are to change the oil and air filters and put gas in it.  We have not had any issues at all with starting my bike. It starts this very first try every single time.  The family that owned it before us did not take the battery out and put it on the smart charger in the winter, so when I purchased this bike the internal battery was dead. I simply replaced the internal battery and now the electric start works really great.

There is nothing that I despise more than spending an entire Saturday trying and trying to get a dirt bike started. I am not very handy so I really needed a dirt bike that would be reliable.   This has proven to be exactly that.

I also really like that in addition to the bike starting very easily, the bike idles very well.  Unlike a 50cc dirt bike that is typically air-cooled, this bike will idle well for a long time even if it’s just sitting there. Last week we were up in the mountains and it was very cold outside and we had no problems getting this bike started the very first try and running all morning without any issues even in the very cold air.

I have not yet tested how long the bike will run on a single tank of gas but even though it has a small 1.1-gallon gas tank.  It runs all day long.  In fact, we usually only put gas in it every two or three trips.  This bike has a gas tank that is 1/10th of a gallon larger than the Yamaha and Kawasaki 110 bikes. I know it’s just a small thing, but I’ll take the 1/10 of a gallon.

Honda CRF110 vs the Kawasaki KLX110 and the Yamaha TTR110

While I do believe the Honda CRF110 is the very best 110 dirt bike on the market at a reasonable price, I would be remiss if I did not mention the Yamaha and Kawasaki dirt bikes.  The reasons that I choose the Honda over the Yamaha are the 1/10 tenth gallon larger gas tank, it weighs between 4and 8 pounds lighter, and it has a kick starter as well as electric start.  On top of that, it costs $50 less than the Yamaha or the Kawasaki if you buy it off the showroom floor.

However, the Honda CRF110 is very very similar to the Yamaha and Kawasaki.  All three bikes are priced within $50 of each other. All three bikes are within .4 inches in seat height. All the bikes have the same CC ratings all of the bikes are within 8 pounds of each other. They all have 14-inch front end 12 inch rear wheels. They all have drum brakes on the front and rear.  They all have this similar fuel capacity.  And they’ll have automatic transmissions. You really have to squint to find any differences between these bikes.

So while I would prefer a Honda 110 over the Yamaha or the Kawasaki, the differences are so slight that I wouldn’t say that you need to get the Honda. If you find a Yamaha or a Kawasaki at a better price then go with whatever one you can find lightly used in your market.

Automatic vs Clutch

The Honda CRF110 is clutchless.  The bike is fully automatic.

Another choice you’ll need to make is whether to get this dirt bike at this price point or if you should step up to a more expensive bike that has a clutch.  In my opinion, most kids at this age will prefer to have the automatic transmission. The clutch is a lot for a kid to be thinking about while they are trying to ride safely. However if your kid is really into racing or is extremely advanced, they may be ready to start with a model with a clutch like that KTM models.

Speed

You may be wondering how fast of this dirt bike will go.  Unfortunately I haven’t tested this bike with a GPS speedometer; however, I can say that when I am riding my dirt bike along dirt roads out in the Forest, my son often flies past me on is 110 dirtbike.  It’s fast. As fast as I dare to let my kids go.  Usually, my son only arrives in second gear on the Stern bike. It’s rare that he wants to kick it up into third gear because it got so fast.

Second gear is a great spot for kids on this bike because they can go up hills they could even make jumps and go plenty fast without ever even going to into third gear.  This bike does have a throttle stop which you could use to slow them down if they go too fast for your liking, but I think most kids won’t dare go faster than this bike can take them anyway.

Pricing

If you can possibly find this dirt bike used, then definitely go for it.I am not a very handy person with small engines, so want win a dirt bike breaks down on me, I often have to take it into the shop and pay someone to fix it. To me, reliability is very important.For those reasons, I decided not to buy a very old dirt bike that is 10 years old.  Instead, I chose to buy this bike very lightly used.  I bought this bike used for $1,400 and it was two years old at the time we purchased it.

If you buy this bike from the dealership brand-new you will pay $2,299 dollars plus tax title and fees.  Honestly, that’s not a horrible deal.  This is an impressive bike even at that price.  However if you don’t mind going slightly used, you’ll save several hundred dollars.  You may need that money to pay for quality safety and protective gear for your son or daughter.

Generally, dirt bikes don’t start having significant durability issues for many years after they are purchased if they are taking care of properly.  If you properly take care of your dirtbike and you don’t push it to the extreme, you may very well go 10 or more years before anything significant breaks on the bike requiring costly repairs.

Get Good Protective Gear for Your Kid

Purchasing quality protective gear will also be an important choice for your son or daughter.I made a lot of mistakes in purchasing the safety gear for my kids. I spent $500 per kid to purchase their gear. And soon after purchasing the gear, I found that some of it was very poor quality.  You replaced some of the items that we have paid a lot of money for.  I wrote an article that will be really useful to you if you’re purchasing gear.  Click right here to read my article about the very best safety protective gear for kids dirt biking.

In the article, I share some of the really inexpensive pieces of gear and we bought for our kids that have turned out to be great.  For exam, le we got elbow and knee pads for $15 that we’re better than the Fox ones that we spent $70 dollars on.   At the same time, there may be times when you should spend a little bit more to prevent you from making up or purchasing decision and buying the item twice.  Such was the case with helmets for us.

    Default Crf 110 vs 65 2 stroke

    My 8 year old daughter wants to start racing some harescrambles, she rides a 2020 crf 110. She has no problem running thru my woods loop at home fast enough that I cant comfortably keep up with her on my sxs ( I use it when I bring my 2 year old with me). My question is how bad is it gonna be for her racing against 65s since her class would be 65cc 2t or 110 4t? The 65s seem so quick vs the 110. Just figured maybe there would be some parents here that have experience with their young ones racing.

    Typically there are 2 or 3 classes at that level. In the novice class, there are plenty of 110's racing against 65's, and the kids on the 65's aren't rapping them out - everyone is competitive.
    When you move up to the more advanced levels, no one will be racing 110's anymore - all the fast kids will be on 65's (and these days maybe some of the new electric bikes).

    I would let her start on her 110 since she is comfortable on it - will learn what it's like to be in the middle of a pack, what it's like to pass someone and be passed.

    The 110 motor is too mellow, not enough snappy power, and if she starts building any speed at all she will quickly override the suspension on that 110.

    Same here, though I started my boys on 2 strokes and kept them there. She is familiar with what she has. With racing, there is a lot of unfamiliar so introducing a new bike to the mix is a big adjustment on top of adjusting to racing. At some point, may want to get a 65 and let her start practicing on it before racing it.

    Thanks for the replies, you guys confirmed basically what I was worried about. I stepped her up to the 110 in a rush cause the 70 she was on i was tired of working on (cheap ssr for first bike). Ill do like you guys say let her start out on the 110 and see if she even likes it hopefully she hasn't gotten too lazy with the electric start and auto clutch.

    My main fear is if she really does like racing that she's gonna be very behind on skill having rode a trail bike for so long. She's 8 now and I figure there's plenty of 6 year olds out there that are probably starting to learn on a 65. I won't make this same mistake with my other daughter or son (she rides a drz70 and he has a pw50 to learn on). I'm gonna be broke by time they are old enough to by their own bikes lol.

    She will adapt quickly if she has skills to ride. 8 is a good age, she won't be behind on the 65. Once she gets some practice, she will leave the 110 on her own. Sounds like she has the skill.

    my experience says, the 65 cc will be much lighter, much faster, its 4 some inches taller, has a clutch to handle, more gear selection, a much more advanced bike - a "real" kids size race machine. the 110 is a real "trail" bike, its much heavier, less suspension, less gears, no clutch, down on power vs the 65, etc. they are (from my observation) 2 totally different machines.

    Also, electric bikes open a hole new pandoras box... lighter, no gears, no clutch, lighter, good suspension, did I say no gears, no clutch, and lightness? just grip and rip - for kids they get spoiled quickly! They can concentrate on riding technique instead of clutch/shift technique.

    For parents, no gas to mix, no gear oil to change, no air filter to clean, no top ends, no carb issues, lithium batteries can go 2.5 hours flat out. They are a dream!

    yep, but they grow, and big bikes have not caught up yet to the E train. So, they end up WAY behind on skills. I kept my boys on 2 strokes for a reason, to teach them the skills they need to be effective in the woods, or on the track. To me, proper clutch skill is as important as learning how to carry corner speed, or standing. The KTM 65's we had were pretty tame compared to the Jap 65's. No 4 stroke tame, but not bad for mine to learn on, coming from a PW 80, which I would say only lacked weight over a 110 4 stroke. LOL

    Yea I'm regretting not going for 2t right from the beginning especially since that's what I ride. I was going more for the "they are riding trails so I don't want the upkeep of a 2t race bike". Never figured the two little girls that used to dress up in princess dresses would wanna try racing.

    Well she raced her first race yesterday, the 65s weren't all she had to worry about. In the series she raced running a 110 puts you in a 15 yo and under trail bike class up to 150cc which run at the same time as 65s 85s and 105s. Also they don't run the peewee course it was a 45 min race in mud and alot of rocks. She learned how good her suspension doesn't work when the trail gets rough.

    Over all there were only 3 bikes in her class one of which the kid was easily on the upper age limit riding a 150f and another girl riding a 110. Both of them spent alot of time picking their bikes up but they both finished the race.

    Lesson learned for me is if you try to race a 110 you get screwed one way or another your usually under powered and definitely have a lack suspension to race anything other than a pee wee course.

Dirt Bikes For Kids | A Parents Guide

Dirt bikes for kids. What a tough topic for parents. I hope you find this article helpful and informative. Choosing the right dirt bike for kids can be a frustrating task for any parent. As you move forward and start to look for the perfect dirt bike for your kid, you must think about safety, compare different kids, dirt bike types, and what size dirt bike to purchase. Yes, choosing the right dirt bike for kids can be tough. This article will help inform you about purchasing the best dirt bike for your child.

kids_dirt_bikesChoosing the right dirt bike for kids given the available models and manufacturers can be both fun and a challenging process. It’s very important to choose wisely, especially if a young rider has never ridden a dirt bike before. Every child is different and you know your best, so make your decision based on your child.  Typically most kids are ready to start riding dirt bikes when they are 4-5 years old – or when they can ride a bicycle without training wheels. There are dirt bikes with training wheels; as a parent, I would not put my child on a dirt bike until they could ride a bicycle without training wheels.

Is your child ready for his or her first dirt bike? – there are no right or wrong answers. Every kid is different and you have to consider what’s best. But A few things to ask yourself as a parent. Does your child tend to stick to things? Do they have a,  I’ll try it once personality and move on? Are they fearless?  Your five-year-old may be ready but the neighbor’s kid may not at the same age and vice versa. Some kids have natural riding gifts, others need extensive instruction. Only you can help your child determine if he or she is ready to ride. A word of caution, don’t force it on them, they should be asking you for the dirt bike.

Answering these questions should help guide you in determining if you and your child want to get into this hobby and how serious you think your child is. Choosing the right starter bike goes beyond just buying the right bike. Other factors like where your child rides as well as your ability to invest in riding gear will all factor into getting the right bike for your kid.

How to Choose a Dirt Bike for Kids

What I can tell you is – don’t go big!  Go small in both engine size (50cc is ideal for beginners) and the actual size of the bike. Look for a used dirt bike first, this way if after a few months your child doesn’t want to ride anymore, you haven’t invested all this money into a new dirt bike.  A brand new dirt bike, even for kids, can be expensive. After you decided on the right used bike for your kid, try contacting a local dirt bike club community and buy a used bike from one of them, trust me, you will thank me later. You can find these community of Facebook.  If your little superstar starts to ride like Ricky Carmichael, then you can go buy him or her the new Dirt Bike later.

Choose a bike that fits. Kids need manageability. This includes being able to sit on the bike and reach the ground with both feet securely and reach the handlebars and controls with ease. Buying too large of a bike and thinking they will grow into, is crazy and unsafe.  I can not stress these points enough. Please take note, your child’s safety and feeling comfortable on the dirt bike are key factors in rider confidence.  If you don’t get these right chances are he or she will not be riding long.

Finally, test ride whatever beginner dirt bike you look at – new or used. Your child may find the 50cc size is too small but a 100cc is too big, then you’ll know to look at the 70cc and 80cc range. The best starter dirt bike, regardless of brand, is the one your kid can sit comfortably on and handle the power. Start them on a 50cc and as your child graduates and improves on skills, then opt for bigger engine sizes with reasonable and manageable power like the 65cc, 70cc, 85cc, 100cc, 110cc, and 150cc.

Dirt bikes for kids can have several different features but typically the more accessories the higher the price tag. One big factor is deciding on an automatic or manual clutch. If your child has never ridden you should opt for the automatic. On the other hand, if your child learns a more complex task quickly or has ridden a dirt bike, then get the manual clutch. The technical aspects of powering a dirt bike range from the easy (just a throttle) to more advanced functions (throttle, foot pedal gear sifter, and handlebar clutch) all operating in together. From my experience, the easier you make riding their new dirt bike, the better.

There are a lot of dirt bikes for kids, so finding the right one for your child can become a big undertaking. In this article, I only give you my recommendations – but only you know your child’s limitations and needs. Being informed as a parent is a good start, so let us get started.

Electric Dirt Bikes for Kids

Should you start your child on Electric Dirt Bikes for Kids?  Yes because this is the time when many kids start their dirt bike journey. So it is important to get them started on the right electric dirt bike. The bike I recommend the Razor MX350 Rocket electric dirt bike. What I Like About It –  The MX350 is an excellent introductory Motocrosser for your kid. The Razor is a very durable and well built electric dirt bike. Big warning parents: these electric dirt bikes for kids are for real. They can be dangerous and can injure your little superstar, make sure he or she is wearing protective equipment.

Razor Mx350 Rocket Electric Dirt Bike

Electric_dirt_bike_for_kids

All your kid will ever need is a place to ride the MX350. This little bike can be ridden on all types terrain as long as your kid can ride it. Simply grip and twist the acceleration control and away he or she will go. The MX350 is priced around $230 at Amazon and that makes this my top pick as a great electric dirt bike for kids.

The 12-inch tires offer good traction on any terrain. The motor is powered with the aid of 2  robust 12-volt rechargeable batteries.  Speeds up to 14 miles per hour, as I said, these little dirt bikes are for real.  It can hold riders weighing up to 140 pounds.  One drawback, this electric dirt bike only gets up to 30 minutes of continuous riding before the batteries will need to be recharged. After seeing many different types and styles of electric dirt bikes for kids over the past few years – this is the one I recommend for kids ages of 4 and 7.

If your child is 8 and older you should consider the Razor MX650 Rocket Electric Dirt Bike. Don’t be alarmed when you do your research on this dirt bike, as Razor recommends the MX650 for ages 16 and older. However, from my experience, most 8-year-olds and older have no problem with the MX650. It does have a lot of features you see on some of the big gas dirt bike – that makes this a great starter bike. As your child master the MX650 they can transition to the Gas Power Dirt Bikes. 

The MX650 is priced at $450 on Amazon. You can read more about the Razor MX650 here!

Caution: If you are looking at other brands, I will caution you, there are knock-offs that lack durable and safe. Saving a few dollars buying an off brand is not the way to go. If one of these electric dirt bikes is not suitable for whatever reason, then keep reading.  I go into details on the gas power dirt bikes – this may be a better choice for your child. My recommendation is to start new riders on the gar power dirt bikes. However, with the uncertainty of some kids, will they keep riding, is why I recommend these electric bikes as an option.

Dirt Bikes With Training Wheels

training_wheelsI only have one bike to recommend if you are looking for a dirt bike with training wheels. The Apollo 70cc Dirtbike with 10-inch tires and comes with training wheels. This dirt bike grows with your kid, as they build up confidence and learn to ride –  you can remove the training wheels. The Apollo 70cc is priced at $650 on Amazon.

The Apollo is a gas powered dirt bike with an automatic clutch. Don’t let the size fool you, this little dirt bike will move and does well on most terrain. There are other sizes in the Apollo line but this is the only one that has a real purpose and the one I recommend. If not for the price and the training wheels, this dirt bike just doesn’t compare to the name brands like KTM and Honda. Considering you can buy a new Honda for about $1200 and you get many more features with a lot better quality. Again, the Apollo does serve a purpose for parents looking for a dirt bike with training wheels at a very affordable price.

Dirt Bikes For 5 to 7-Year-Olds

For kids in this age group, you should be looking at the 50cc dirt bikes. Most of the 50cc dirt bikes are excellent and there are very few differences between manufacturers. Having said that, my favorite 50cc dirt bike is the KTM 50cc (very expensive), followed by the Honda CRF50 and the Yamaha TTR50.

The KTM 50 SX

50cc

This is the KTM 50 SX  and this bike will cost you about $4500. But like I’ve said if this is your child’s first dirt bike I would buy them a used one. You can find one that’s a few years old for around $2000.

This is gut check time if you’re not sure if your little guy is up for this, then I would look at the  Honda CRF 50 or the Yamaha TTR50.

The Honda CRF 50


crf50

A new Honda CRF 50F will cost you about $1600. A used  Honda CRF 50 or CRF 70 goes for about $800 and the same for the TTR50. The Honda CRT50F is a very capable bike for your kid.  It just does not compare to the KTM. When you look at the two bikes setting side-by-side you can easily pick out the differences.  Again, that doesn’t mean the Honda isn’t a good fit for your child.

If I was buying my 5-year-old his or her first bike, I would buy the Honda CRF 50F.  You can buy a new Honda cheaper than a used KTM. And during the first year, it is not going to matter much.  Like I said earlier, at this age their’s too much uncertainty to go all out financially, a wait and see approach will serve you better.

It is worth mentioning if you “know” your little superstar is going to race, then you must consider the KTM 50 SX or the Cobar CX50. When it comes to racing these two brands have it covered in the 50cc classes. A new Cobar CX50 FWE will cost you around $5000 and a used one for $2700.

Dirt Bikes For 8 to 12-Year-Olds

For many kids, this is the ideal age to start riding a dirt bike. This is the age when many kids start his or her journey on learning to ride a dirt bike.  Having the appropriate seat height is a must at this age to ensure your child will have the full control over the bike without having any difficulty. A seat height of 24 to 28 inches is the recommended height for kids 8 to 12 years of age. Secondly, the complexity of a clutch might be difficult for kids in this age group, so choosing an automatic clutch is also my recommendation. With that said, I  have a few starter dirt bikes I would recommend. Honda CRF110F, the Yamaha TT-R110E, or the Kawasaki KLX110.  All three of these dirt bikes meet those requirements.

The Honda CRF110F

kids_dirt_bikeWith a seat height of 26.8 inches and weight of 163 pounds, it makes the top of my list for kids in this age group.  The Honda CRF110F is the best starter dirt bike for kids 10 years old. It comes with both electric start and a kick start. It has an automatic clutch.

The power of the bike is very proficient and easily managed,  it also has a throttle stop. At a price of around $2300 new, it is the best value for the money. It is the dirt bike I recommend when parents ask me what dirt bike to buy their 10-year-old – you get a lot of dirt bike for this price.

The Yamaha TT-R110E
The Yamaha TTR-110 has a seat height of 26.4 inches and has a ground clearance of 7.1 inches – the tallest in this group of dirt bikes. When full of fluids,  it weighs in at 159 pounds.  With a price of around $2300, it is price comparable to other dirt bikes in this group.  You can find the TTR 110 priced at around $900 to $1,200 used. This is a good dirt bike, it’s just not my favorite one in this group of motorcycles. If you are not wanting to spend a lot of money, then the TTR 110 makes a great choice for a used dirt bike.

The Kawasaki KLX110
It is the most popular among kids because it comes in lime green color.  The seat height is 26.8 inches and weighs in at 167 pounds full of fluids. It’s priced at $2300 brand new. Its 112cc air-cooled engine provides smooth power and rock-solid reliability. It has an automatic clutch. The Kawasaki KLX110 is another great starter dirt bike for kids 8 to 12 years old. Like the TTR110, the KLX110 is a very capable dirt bike, I just like the Honda CRF110 as it gives the rider better feedback, that leads to more confidence in the rider.

Choosing from any of the three dirt bikes above, pick the one that really suits the needs of your kid. All three of them have very little differences when it comes to their specs and pricing. If your kid sits on the KLX110 and likes the feel over the other two dirt bikes, then you should get the one he or she likes.

Dirt Bikes For Kids 12 to 16 Years Old

This is a very tough age group to recommend a dirt bike for because theirs a lot of variables parents must consider. First thing first, is your child new to riding dirt bikes? Or has he or she been riding for a year? Let me address the first question, if he or she is new to dirt bikes, then get them a 110cc dirt bike. I recommend the Honda CRF110F, the Yamaha TT-R110E, or the Kawasaki KLX110. These are the same dirt bikes I recommend for 8 to 12-year-olds. Given, your child has never ridden, find them a use dirt bike like the CRF110. This size dirt bike will suit them well. As they gain more experience and become confident, you can buy them a bigger bike later.

Dirt_bikes_for_10_year_oldsFor those kids that have been riding for a year or more, I would say as a parent simply, “LISTEN”. If he or she has been riding they have a good idea of the type of dirt bike they want, you should just guide them in their decision process. I don’t recommend any dirt bike over 150cc, there are a few exceptions to this. There are a few kids, you will know, that can ride the 250cc but I would still opt for the 150cc or less at this age.

My take on what brand to buy. If your child is going to be riding mostly MX tracks I would buy one of the Asian Brand,  such as Yamaha, Kawasaki or the Honda. If they are going to ride mostly trails I would buy one of the European Brands like KTM, Beta or Husqvarna. Without getting all technical, the European dirt bikes are better suited for trails and off-road terrain. And the Asian brands do much better on the MX tracks, just saying.

Dirt Bike Gear for Kids

The one thing you definitely want your child to emulate about their heroes is all the gear they wear. Helmet, chest protection, boots, knee braces, gloves, and goggles are necessary investments to your child’s dirt bike riding adventures.

Approach dirt bike riding gear for your child the same way you approached buying the bike with the exception of buying used. I recommend new gear unless you’re comfortable using a hand-me-down from a family member or close friend who you trust. Even a small crash can damage and impair the quality of gear – especially a helmet. Read more about dirt bike gear of kids.

Final thoughts, what is the best dirt bike for kids? There is no one good answer, but take your time and make an informed decision that suits your child’s needs. I have given you my personal recommendation for kids of different ages, but there are exceptions. And the only way to know what is the best dirt bike for your child is to let them ride a few different dirt bikes, and observe them while riding. You’ll know by watching them ride if the bike is suitable, just by the confidence they show. Please give us feedback on the dirt bike you choose in the comments, I want to hear from you.

Be safe and let’s go riding.

2021 Vital MX 110 Shootout

UPDATE (8/12/2020):  See new updates below

The pitbike/playbike world is on fire! Everybody is stuck at home (something about a virus...) and they're pulling out their old pitbikes and/or buying anything they can find. We may not be able to ride our big bikes, but most anybody can find a backyard track where they can ride a playbike.

The new Honda EFI CRF110F, CRF125F, and the KLX110L are some of the best-selling bikes in America. They're sold out all across the US and we're hearing of guys driving 5+ hours to get one. A local dealer got 10, the other morning, and sold out before 2:00 in the afternoon. The KLX110 and TTR110 are selling out around the US, as well. A California customer told us that he called every motorcycle dealership, in the state, and couldn't find a single new 110 of any brand. Somebody had a new (in the crate) CRF110, on the local want ads, which sold for $1000 above list!

We're selling out of products, which should have lasted a year, in a matter of weeks. We had a few days where we started with dozens of a product, and then they're all gone before lunch. It's as crazy as we've ever seen it. The main point is, if we have something available - grab it while it is here.

Unfortunately, we can't hold parts while you're waiting for other things to be in stock. We don't have enough room to do it, and moto guys (us included) are notorious for changing their minds. When all the parts finally show up, they back out. Then we've lost potential sales for parts that have been sitting (sometimes for months). We understand that combined shipping (especially for overseas customers) can save some money. Until we can get through this craziness, you'll have to either buy what we have, when we have it, or take your chances that the parts will still be available.

Here's a video, that Duane and Carson put together, to talk about the new CRF110 and all the craziness going on right now:



We're still trying our best to ship orders, same day, if they arrive before 1:00 p.m. (west coast time). But, we're so busy that may have to change. We always try our best, but we're limited by the number of hours in a day. Large orders take longer and may have to ship the next day.



How do I get on the backorder list?  To get on the backorder list for anything that is out of stock, click this link:  

Be sure to include your full contact info (first and last name, address - with zip/postal code, phone number, etc.) and what you want. Even if you email from your iPhone, we don't get your phone number (and often not even your name). Also, don't forget to tell us which motorcycle (and which parts). Believe it or not, when you say you want to backorder "springs for a 110" - that doesn't really help. There are 4 different 110's and they pretty much all take different parts. Please make sure you let us know which one you have. We're getting a lot of emails that simply say, "Please backorder all the cool pitbike parts for my bike". We have about 600 unique product numbers and we happen to think they're all pretty cool. Help us out.


How do I know if I'm still on the list?  If you're already on our list, please don't call us to check on whether you're "still on the list". We're not removing anybody and we're so busy we can't get things done if everybody is calling. Your best bet is to e-mail us and we can double check for you. We're doing over 100 e-mails a day so be patient. Also, if your e-mail is "gnarlydude69", it's going to be tough for us to figure out who you are and what name the backorder is under - so tell us what name we could find it under. We've had a couple of people go ballistic when we can't find them. Eventually, we find it under a spouse's name or a nickname like "Buddy" or their neighbor's name (who is installing the parts).


How do I know where I am on the backorder list (or will I make the cut)?  Most of these parts should have plenty to cover the existing backorders. It's going to take us a while to get through the backorder lists when each thing is ready to ship. We generally leave a phone message and/or e-mail to see if you still want the part, and to get your payment info.


If I pay now can I get it sooner (or go to the front of the list)?  We never take payment until we ship. Backorders we call in the order we receive them. Please do not call and ask what number you are on the list. If you're on the backorder list we should have enough to cover you.





Here's status on some of our most popular items that are currently out of stock (updated 8/12/2020):

CRF110F Stock Comp Swingarms:   These have been a comedy of errors (well, a tragedy is probably more accurate). Everybody's frustrated and we're super frustrated, too. They're going to be amazing and worth the wait. A pile of people have to touch these and the quarantine delays made it that much worse. We have hundreds of customers waiting and we're ready to move on to new projects. The sides of these swingarms are forged in China (unfortunately, it's almost impossible to do this in the US - it hurts our flag waving soul too). The heat-treaters lost the forging dies (after we had received samples made from them), and we missed Christmas. New dies were made and then the coronavirus hit. We lost another 10+ weeks due to that.

2019/2020 CRF110F Throttle Tube:   These have been in process for months. We started working with a new injection mold shop to avoid doing them in China. Unfortunately, the new shop had to close for 10+ weeks (due to someone deciding a bat looks tasty) and also struggled with getting raw materials with the shutdown. As of today, they believe they can have them by the end of May. We're hoping to have it sooner, but we don't have much more accurate news than that. These shouldn't be this difficult and we're super frustrated, too.

UPDATE (5/19/2020):  

UPDATE (6/3/2020):  

UPDATE (8/12/2020):  We now have two different injection mold shops working on these. Hope one of them comes through in Sept.

Now discussing:

Nina liked to write on my face, as well as direct the jet from my penis to different parts: eyes, ears, nose, mouth, like from a hose. Today was probably the last time and Nina will no longer be able to keep me company, because tomorrow she is getting married and these five. Years and four months will be my most beautiful memories.

I was left alone again and now no one will bother me to do.
