Jet Dirt bike on Ebay

Home  \  Motorsports  \  Jet Dirt bike on Ebay

Hey Guys Im 17 years old and next summer I plan on spending around $3,000 CND on a 250cc dirtbike (around 1995). I was looking for a dirt bike on ebay just for kicks and saw a ad. The ad for a JET bike that claims its as good as honda or yamaha. Its only $899.00 US brand new. Im from canada so I would have to pay fees to get it shiped over. Im just wonder if this is a good idea. Or is this wanabe just a piece of crap? heres the Link. I don't know what do you guys think? I want to do some small jumps (around 20 feet) so would this thing have good enough suspension

go to this link ( _W0QQitemZ7184493557QQcategoryZ98082QQcmdZViewItem)

One wierd thing I noticed was that all the pictures they had of someone jumping was on a Honda CR or a yamaha. Why don't that have pictures of there bikes jumping. A lot of the stuff on it looks cheap like the front forks look pretty
skinny (but I guess it would have to be cheap to have such a cheap price). One thing that I like about it (besides the price) is that it has a 34" seat hight which would fit me nice (I'm five foot seven)

theres also a whole bunch of other bikes that are cheaper.
Check out the other ones that are brand new. Zkm?

Also heres another bike (200cc Viva) ( _W0QQitemZ7189345992QQcategoryZ98082QQcmdZViewItem)

I want a bike that is powerful (but not too powerful becuse I am a newbie on dirt bikes) and good for jumping and maybe in the future lisence it for street use.

Whats better JET or Viva? (the viva looks like a better quality bike to me)

Get a Vespa, those things are actually pretty fast...don't know about the jumps though :doh:

The first one is really cheap. I always thought that bikes went for way more. In general that is. I just found out that the Suzuki GSX-R I want is not $25,000 but only $3,000 used. :smoke:

Way to revive an old thread. :clap: And sorry, your xr250 is not fast, you are just trying to trick a beginner.

That Jet bike is a pos and a total rip off its just a cheap noname brand trying to rip you off so stay away from it.

the xr250 seems fast to me. i topped it out at 85 and i shure wont do 85 on a motocross track. im not trying to trick anybody, i especially cant trick a beginner because i am a beginner.

Well I noticed this a while back but this topic is revived, since when did they make an 85cc in 1997?

posted by  Benson

If you were smart stay with a 1999-2004 Suzuki/Honda/Yamaha 250's They're Known And I've bought a 500$ 50cc Dirt Bike For Kicks. It Sucked.. So Just Sayin. Cheap Things Are Hard Too Be Repared (Unless You Can Do It) And Replacing Parts Is Super Hard On Unknown Bikes.. So.... I Say Suzuki 250 :)

Advice is useless considering this guy hasn't came back since he registered, I really doubt he even saw the first response.
