Power
it is ok i got it from a friend and it was not fast at all . but what helped was that i put some new parts in it like new Uni Filter, Crank, Wiseco Rod, Wiseco Piston, .020 bore, bearings, seals, gaskets and it runs great and fast now
Suspension
it is ok . i think it is just a bit to soft but what do i know i am 14 and are riding a 95 cr500 and i still run the small pw80 some times
Brakes

Comments

Power
Pretty awesome. I weigh 140lbs and the thing towed around my weight like it was nothing, and the bike weighed 125lbs. Great power in all 3 gears. Good low end and not a bad mid-top.
Suspension
Too soft in front and rear, However It was supposed to be a bike that had riders that weighed less than the bike. It did take trails nicely though.
Brakes
Good for front and rear drums. Front was tuned nicely; the back stuck because it needed a new brake shoe.
Comments
Great bike. shouldn't of sold it; so that now I could be making a fast 50 out of this bike.

Power
power sucks- you get more power out of a 50. it is good for a learning or kids bike, but if you want power get a 125 or 250.
Suspension
suspensions not that hot, although how many little kids are going to be ramping anyway?
Brakes
good, but only cuz you cant go fast enough to need stopping power
Comments
good for begginning bikers 6-10 yrs old.

Power
This bike is not a powerful bike in any part of the RPM. First gear goes like 3 MPH , second gear has such a wide range that you'll find yourself switching back down to first to go up a little hill, third has no power at all.
Suspension
one word: terrible . bottoms out with 1/2 ft of air. Nice ride over little bumps though.
Brakes
The rear brake either skids, or you need to use the front brake. Front is perfect. I found myself mostly using the front brake.
Comments
I have a 1998 PW-80. IF any of you want to buy it for your kids, i am selling it for $800. E-mail me at :
