Re: Kasea, Arctic cat, Polaris or Kymco?
As a suggestion, visit a few local tracks in your region and if possible, wiggle your way into the Pit area. If the riders and/or mechanics aren't in a rush, chat with them. People being people, some won't give you the time of day, and others will share their knowledge with you. If they are "chatty", ask them about the Kasea, Polaris and other brands. From their racing perspective, they should be able to give you lots of pros / cons from their unique racing perspective.
From a brand perspective, many like the Kasea and Polaris brands. If Kasea was available in my area, I'd have a serious look at their 50 brand. The Polaris Pred-50 is also great but a few have stated their factory A-Arms look a little weak. If you'll be racing, I would assume you'll be replacing the factory A-Arms with wider ones. The Kasea has a foot brake and the Pred-50 has brake levers. For recreational riding, the Kasea 50 & Pred-90 are great brands. For racing and greater need within "ease of control and ease of performance upgrades" for your type of track conditions, these brands could be on opposite ends of the scale. Again, it's best to dive into the pitt area and gather the "real details" for other experienced racers.
Hope this helps...
