Results may vary. The stock jetting is actually close to perfect for me, even at 3,000-4,500 feet. If I put a 168 main in my bike I would fully expect it to seize within 5 laps. I actually have a 180 main in right now for the cold Arizona winter.

It's like my buddy who donates 10% tithing right off the top of his gross pay to his church (not to make this a religious thread). I said wow, that's quite a bit of money when you are trying to pay your bills and raise your kids. He said "oh no problem,

Only 1 problem with the Yamaha. It is freakin' huge! This is awesome if you are a tall lanky rider. Not so awesome if you have to take 2 milk crates with you to the starting gate. It sucks that the Honda has such low power numbers since they are built ... more »

Does not look low hour to me as they claim. Look at that clutch cover. And it needed wheel bearings. Looks like a fairly well used bike with fresh plastics to me. $2999 ? I paid less than that for my 2006 when it was 4 yrs old. I had a 94 and liked it ... more »

The engine in the 2005+ YZ125 was a quantum leap. I've ridden plenty of 125's with as much top-end but they are usually gutless on the bottom and mid. The stock YZ screams as well as many modded motors but has impressive bottom and mid (for a 125) that ... more »

He had to check up on that triple because the 2-stroke didn't have enough power.

Been riding my 2006 YZ125 for 6 years. Changed the fiber plates 3 times. Each time I had to change the inner hub as well as it gets notched from the steel plate teeth. I considered buying a Hinson inner hub. Then I realized for $200 I could go through ... more »

I have the same bike. My advice is to run 32:1. If for no other reason, other people's jetting specs will mean something to you since that is what is recommended in the bike. At 45:1, you are basically having to run the main so much leaner than stock ... more »

Haha yeah that'll make it run weird. I noticed on mine it is pretty sensitive to jetting. If I try to drop the needle just 1-clip it gets a lean bog when I crack the throttle. Makes a really noticeable difference.

I love the suspension on my 06-125. I weigh 170. I put the stock springs from my 250 in it and it's perfect. Yes, it does feel like it's floating. I think a lot has to do with how light the bike is. If you are bogging with the 410 main I'd be looking ... more »

First you need to determine what you want to get out of the cam. More bottom? More top? Do some research and determine which cams will do what you want on your model bike. On some twin-cam bikes you can get away with replacing just 1 of the cams depending ... more »

I watched in person yesterday. TG is smooth as silk compared to JM. I personally really like TG's style. It is how I try to ride. JM looks rough and ragged compared to TG.
Added reply in a thread Sugo Japan racing thread 10/25/2015 3:32 PM
Exactly what Dren said. JM always "looks" faster because he has a more agressive style. Heavy throttle and touching the rev limiter. TG is very smooth and flowing in the corners.
