You don't need to be pro to use kit suspension. You will feel the benifits for sure. If you can afford it, no questions asked that's the way to go, but once you buy them you still need to get the revalved for your weight and speed, so keep that in mind ... more »
ML should be nominated for a 2017 Pulpy award.
I took mine off with a grinder then sand paper and scotch brite to get the final finish.
For the carbon, I just roughly measures it and then eyeballed it. Hahhaa once you drill through one side, I cleaned it up by going the other way then used light sandpaper to smooth out all the fibers. Wear gloves and long sleeves because the fiberglass. ... more »
I've used mine for a year with no problems. I have a tall van so I can stand and I just roll the bike I, sit on it, step on both clamps and I'm done. I like it because I can move around in the van without the straps in my way, that was the main reason ... more »

I believe it's real movie, nothing with Dirt Shark.
I have a Lectron on my 16 125 and happy with it after a few tweaks. Seems solid at all the elevations I've been riding. Depends how picky you are with your jetting. Very easy to turn which takes a lot of guess work out. I feel like my 125 hauls ass!

My KTM leaks also. Is it just the gasket?
I did mine with dynamite and this silver insulation from Home Depot. My one regret was not insulting the floor enough, the cold comes right up in the winter months.
Once you get the suspension dialed, that bike is really fun.
4 strokes are really easy to ride because the power is always there. Especially with EFI, super easy and reliable. You are on the edge of being heavy for a 250f but if you like the feel go with that. 2 strokes are fun and less expensive to rebuild, but ... more »

You can't compare StankDog problems with any of our own. He's doing 2 practices and 2 30minute Moto's at a pro level. That's like saying don't get a Kx250f because the problems Pro curcuit has. I've heard of guys running the 16 125 for 100+ hours with ... more »
Very true. I haven't owned a 2 stroke since I was 16... Some people tell me 20 hours, then I've heard 40. Thanks for the advice!

Like he said, the only difference in those 2 years is suspension. If you're going to upgrade the suspension either way, just get the least expensive option.
Hey guys my 2016 KTM 125 just hit 50 hours. I got it with 30 hours and put a new Piston in at 40. What intervals are you guys doing Pistons or rings? How are the bottom ends holding up? What's your oil change interval? Thanks for the advice!

Do they have aftermarket reeds for the 16+17 yet? I tried to order some in November and they still didn't have it done.

I feel like 95 E-Free is more than enough for a stock 125. Just my 2 cents. But I run 50/50 VP C12 with 91pump.
My 16 125 had the same. Major gap!
I'm running 50/50 VP c12 and 91 pump in my 16 KTM 125. C12 at 40:1 91 pump at 60:1
