I'm looking into oversized bars for my 05 YZ125 but the bar mounts are cast into the triple clamp. I see they changed this in 06 and up. Does anyone know if the 06 top clamp will bolt right on? I looked at the Pro Taper Universal bar mounts and I really ... more »

36mm Keihin PWK Airstriker Carburetor. The Mikuni TMX carb on my CR was very temperamental. It always needed adjustment and from what I gathered from others was just sub par compared to the PWK. I did the swap and had it jetted by a local shop and I ... more »

I posted this on another thread, I'll just leave it here. I feel they are awesome bikes as long as you don't want to race. It would also make a great beginner or trail bike. I had an 01 CR125 I did the 05 airboot Drilled out the side panels for air flow ... more »

This may be the way I go, I noticed the Protaper mounts rise an extra 3/4 of an inch, I think these tusk ones may do the trick. Have you had any experience with them?

Thanks for the response, I remember back in the day Pro taper wold make a kit that would just come with the top clamp. I guess they discontinued that.

The Theory is that the racing would be closer because it is very hard to run 20 perfect laps on an SX track when riding a two stroke. Riders will make more mistakes allowing for more openings.Block passes become incredibly effective because you need ... more »

If they made the same exact game for a modern console, with the track editor and online play I would be all over it! My brother and I used to keep track of our lap times and try to one up eachother, those sessions used to get pretty heated!

Good Morning! I've received from good info from the Vital Crew lately on an issue I'm having but I thought I'd run it by you as well. The forks on the 2005 YZ125 apparently came with too much Preload, The common fix was spacers. We did the spacers last ... more »
Added reply in a thread 2005 YZ125 suspension question 4/20/2016 12:21 PM
I did have the forks sent to a respected local shop. He added some spacers to make up the preload, What else could a shop do to improve the performance? Even after the spacers were added I can still tell there is a bit of "negative preload" on the forks. ... more »
