Added reply in a thread Making the switch.. 450 to 125 7/31/2014 11:55 PM
I also sold my CRF 450 and bought a ex team practice bike of Davi Millsaps. It was sold out of the MTF facility some years ago. The cool thing is it's totally loaded with all the PC parts, pipe, etc. Since the motor was dead, I replated the cyl, new

What bearing kit did you use? My 97 CR125 KYB's have a larger stem size, as well as the larger axle. 95 was the year they changed it. The KYB's that year were used on all the CRs in 96. They are 46mm instead of 43's. They are much easier to set up well.

I'll check the axle, the front end has the original axle with it. I mainly wanted to use this front as it is KYB, and in 96 Honda went to the larger tubes, and they can be set up better than the earlier forks. I'll check it out tomorrow.

Did you use the whole newer front wheel or were you able to just change the rotor on the 86 wheel. I might do this swap myself, so that I can use a stronger front brake on my 87. I have a front end off a 97 CR125 I can use. But I like my Gold wheels. ... more »

Yes and he tangled with Grant making an inside pass overtaking Grant and they connected. When the Dunge makes only safe passes, everyone says he's not aggressive enough. When JS starts aggressivly working through the pack, everyone rags him as well. ... more »

I think that if you are not in a hurry, I'd sit on it until someone who's looking for a cool 125 with the goodies will offer at least 2K for one that nice. I scored an ex Suzuki Team 125 and rebuilt it. After 250's and 450's, man, a 125 is so much fun, ... more »

I think Tony got mad when he did not get the "contract" back from Steve. The MCR team had a bad day (mud and rain) , Tony saw Steve coming over to their pit, and scribbled the contract in the heat of emotion. After giving Steve the contract, and it being ... more »

Added reply in a thread JS7 setting up the bike 5/25/2014 10:53 PM
As far as JS7's bike, the Suzuki RM(Z) have very aggressive steering geometry, and those who ride Suzuki know, they are a bit nervous and head shake quitw a bit. JS7 runs a steering damper I believe. And JS7 rides it pretty hard compared to IT9 and others. ... more »

Disbanded, you need to get someone in your group to join their organization to keep tabs and get the future dates, etc., so you don't get blind sided. Good luck with your efforts.
