Robert...I have some questions about pocketbike racing...

Okay, a friend of mine has a YSR for sale, and I was wondering if this is a competitive bike in pocketbike racing. I have NO experience with pocketbikes, so please don't laugh at me.

I grew up racing go-karts, which I still think is the pinnacle of auto racing. Are the pocket bikes as fun to race as go-karts? I know that they won't go 130+MPH like go-karts, (or will they? I have no idea!!)

Are they pretty cheap to race?
is there a sanctioning body in AZ?
I guess I just need some general info that I'm afraid to ask on pocketbikes.net.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

YSR's are not allowed in Pocketbike racing.

Cool

We don't bite, really! And we did answer most of your questions over on PBW.



IMO YSR racing and PB racing aren't comparable except that they're both on two wheels. YSR's have suspension and shifting, and weigh about 10x more than pocketbikes. They also cost a lot more to keep running in top condition which is one other reason I prefer pocketbikes.

Give TT's Motorsports a call (602.862.0023) and tell them Erica sent you. We'll be riding next weekend and you're welcome to join us.
