Cheap Dirt Bikes , Ultimate Fashion Within Economy

Aug 17, 2007
It is always better if you manage to get an authentic dirt bike in exchange of a small amount; in that case, cheap dirt bikes would be a good option. A 4000cc dirt bike can cost you almost $8000. So, if you are willing to enjoy the irresistible excitement in a small cost, then used bikes would be suitable for you.

Where to buy a cheap dirt bike

If you are vigilant enough to choose the right model for yourself, you can get several options. Initially, you have to decide which dirt bike model you will purchase. You must also be very particular about your budget. In this case, you must approach the dirt bike dealers, since they are much cheaper than the established dealers. You can get the necessary information about dirt bikes from the classified pages of the local newspaper and the Internet as well.

There is another way out to purchase dirt bikes; that is through auctions. There are quite a number of websites, which arrange for such online auctions. Through these sites you will be able to know about the exact locality where the auction will take place, and would not have to loiter around much.

In order to use a second hand bike, you need to have a substantial knowledge about different parts. The dealer would show you something very shiny and well kept from outside. But that does not mean that the bike itself would be good as it looks. If you do not know enough about the dirt bike parts, take a friend with you who can judge the condition of it.

The private sellers too can be a good option for buying a second hand dirt bike. But before buying, make sure that it is not a stolen bike. If the bike looks a bit overused, and you find the numbers missing or altered, then it could surely be a stolen bike. You have to be very cautious about this matter, because, there are plenty of examples of such thefts.

Before buying, you must inspect the bike closely, and ask some relevant questions regarding its previous owners, date of manufacture and other subtle details. You must also ask the seller if the bike has ever been raced or not. The seller would tell whatever you like to hear and you must be very watchful in these matters.

Make sure that the clutch and the gearbox are all right and no jarring sound is coming out of the bike. Finally, if you are convinced and ready to purchase it, you must take the bike for a mock ride to test its potential.

In order to take the bike for a mock ride you have to follow these rules:
1. With the help of the rear wheel and the swing-arm, move the bike forward to check the swing-arm bearings.
2. Repeat the process with the front wheel and move the bike backwards and forwards.
3. Pay attention to the top ends and the timing chain and check if there is any bizarre noise coming out of it.
4. Kick the bike once to feel the compression.
5. Examine the kick-starter seal, and also check if oil leaks from anywhere.
6. Have a feel of the brake disks too.
7. Bend the bike side wards and have a good look underneath.

All these conditions need to be checked to be sure you have an A grade bike.
