Ok new to forum and need some help and advice. I have been looking for my daughter a bike and some how today found a package deal and ended up with a CR85R. I got my daughter a XR100. I felt the deal was good enough I just took both. The CR is apparently a big wheel. I thought well I could ride some. I know very little about bikes and less about this one. Anything I should know about maintance. Not sure history should I do some things up front? Bike is in great shape. Should I consider selling or trading to get something more for fitting for me. Just looking for something to do some trail riding together as a family

thats a great bike. I love my cr 85. for maintnance they are just like any other two stroke.

Depending on how hard you ride you will need to replace the piston and rings. I go about 15 hours before I replace rings / piston but I rape my bike. You could probably just ride it for ever any not really have any problems with just chain lube, oil changes and filter cleaning.

The cr85 big wheel is a great bike. The only thing it should really need for a larger rider is a heavier rear spring.

As far as maintenance, all I had to do to my 1997 cr80 big wheel was a fork rebuild and a good clean. Everything else was great. Of course there's everything else I'm doing to it to make it race & street legal...
