First I doubt you'll hit topspeed, or a differance if you do. I think the kx 85 is actually faster though.

Your eleven years old. Get the 85. Im hesitating about putting my sister on an 85, and shes 14. The 100 has more displacement and bigger tires, but to say "which is faster" would depend on who is riding it. An 11 year old would be a lot faster on the 85, faster on an 80. If a bike is too big for you, it will slow you down, and could hurt you. You have a lot of growing to do, and a lot to learn. Dont be so anxious to get a huge bike, i remember you were looking at 125's a while back. My vote would be 80 or 85. But to answer your question... in a straight drag the 100 would be faster (stock). You can mod the 85 to beat the 100, i think Tryce got an 85 up to like 93mph.

Thats what I meant. And I really think the kx85 is faster. Not sure why, but I have read some stuff, and heard it, from some pretty reputable people.

i think the 85 is faster, but he 100 will get to top-speed faster. so in a drag kx100.

gearing. the 85's make more power than the 100. jus the hundred makes more throughout the whole range.

I think the 100 makes more power, but its actually a very differant engine supposedly. They're all fast, so pick a bike that fits best, and works for you. Speed is nothing without control. And by control, thats good fitment and everything else.
