Added reply in a thread Crf250 forks to cr125 96 can it be done? 12/16/2014 10:50 PM

Go to AllBalls racing's website, they have a page that will show what bearing kit is available for your 95 CR125.

That's what I tell friends when they ask to ride my CR500, " If you can start it, you can ride it". Only one has got to ride it. And he's 6'2" and 260

I would still contact Yamaha, they may have issued a recall or such, and they may help you out. It's worth a try.

I wear these also, and I've found that my astigmatism in one eye effected my riding and balance, I was crashing more often in situations where I normally did not have these problems. I can run(in the past), bike, etc, with no problems, but on the M/C

Added reply in a thread Why did my bike seize? 11/28/2014 11:44 PM

Intake seizure usually is from contamination. Maybe there was debris in the lower end from previous problems. The LH (mag) seal would also be suspect. That's cheap and easy to fix while you're at it.

If you can afford it, the 250F is fine, but be prepared for the real set ups and cost that go with it. If you race for fun, can work on things yourself, and are on a budget, the YZ250 2T would be the way to go. 06 and later has the good suspension, you

My Wiseco Crank has been doing fine, going on 2 years now. Of course I run Maxima oil with 110 race gas.

Wow, that's a good start, for twin shock racing. I have a 79 KX250 apart in boxes, waiting for budget. The 80 YZ250G is first in line. Both of your guy's bike are way cool. In 88, I bought a new YZ250, a big step up back then.

My Showa forks were already revalved by Pro Circuit, as well as the shock, so I rebuilt them myself with the bushings, seals, etc. The shock was dead, so I sent it to Factory Connection. They rebuilt them, and they changed the rear spring for my weight.

I raced both the 1980 YZ 250 & 465 back in 1980. Both were purchased new> Never had a DNF, no seizures, no tranny issues at all. Moto and GP/Hare scrambles. When I got out of the service, I bought a used G model 250 in So Cal, raced it until 1985

Galfer makes a shorter brake line that routes it the Honda CR way, you don't need a different brake caliper. If you want more power, do an over sized rotor kit, they are pretty impressive for the money. I did a full RM125 resto, the bike is in my avitar. ... more »

Back in 1980, I raced a YZ465 G model, it would light up every tire except for a Terra Flex 5:50x18. I miss that bike. I found a YZ 250 G basket case for $50.00. I've just started the restoration. I wanted a 465 though, for vintage racing. I'll build
