Tracking the 125 2-stroke

Just settling curiosity...

What tracks in Cali are best for the 125? Kart tracks like Sears Point? I've borrowed but never owned one and loved the little brappers!!

What kind of 125? Converted dirt bike? Grom? Tracks that cater to that size bike are Stockton, Dixon, Sonoma cart track etc. Now , if we're talking about an RS125.....

125 GP bike (tz125, RS125 etc) any of the tracks, I doubt I’d run one at a place like Stockton. Thunderhill west would be really good, but even east is appropriate

A Kayo 125 is a Mini. It makes ~10HP and has 12” wheels. A production 125 makes ~30HP and has 17” wheels. A full 125GP bike makes ~50HP and used to be raced professionally. Same engine size, vastly different performance and cost.

This. I suspect most trackday providers won't let a small 125 with 12" wheels on a big track. Just too slow.

I once got to take my YSR with a YZ80 motor in it on the Thunderhill East track. Did great through the corners, even passed a big bike or two. ON the straights it was another story. Basically rode in 5th and 6th gear around the entire track.

Sounds like an angry bumble bee!! Teaches patience and cornering skills. Some of those fast kiddo's smash in B group at many of the big tracks, but the noobs stay at the kart tracks lol I always love seeing / hearing / smelling those lovely little bikes!!!

The fast NorCal kids started at the kart tracks, and often go back.

Ladydragon, you're either confused or you're trying to disguise an ad as a question. You ask about 125 2-strokes at the track (they can be fun), but then you post a bunch of stuff about a Chinese 4 stroke that would be a dangerous joke at the tracks discussed here on this forum. I'm guessing you're just trying to help a friend sell product. Good luck.
