Added reply in a thread CR250/CR125 RESTYLE KIT (FINALLY) Woohoo! 2002-2007 w/ 2015 Update Kit 12/16/2014 2:11 AM

I was actually gonna DIY this exact thing. But I'll ask the same question I asked myself: What about the airbox? Do the side plates just go over the top? Like others have mentioned, a new front fender/plate does wonders for the look of the last gen CRs. ... more »

Added reply in a thread KTM leading the way again with High School MX 12/11/2014 4:41 PM

Back in 2005 or so they did this at my highschool. A local Kawasaki dealership supplied bikes (I think). Of course attendance was maxed out quickly. Then the next few years they did it you had to bring your own bike. And organise your own transport. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Post a picture of your garage 12/11/2014 4:35 PM

That's where I lived before. I didn't get around to plastering the wall or doing the lights. Did the tiling though. Had my CRMAR and Polaris 400L outside as well. Current garage. Out of sight is my 600RR and the CRM and Polaris I ... more »

Added reply in a thread Works-style pipes for CR125 '03 12/4/2014 7:04 PM

I wasn't going to. I don't think silencers do that much for performance, especially carbon ones. Nor am I fast enough to notice the difference. The bike came with a PC silencer so I'll just repack it and it'll be good to go! Cheers for the links guys, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Which bike would you choose? 12/4/2014 6:58 PM

Probably an NSR500. Arguably the best and most successful bike of all time. As far as dirt bikes go, probably the last CR250 RC rode. That was a nice bike too.

Started new thread Works-style pipes for CR125 '03 12/3/2014 9:33 PM

Anyone know where I'd be able to get a works-style pipe for a 2003 CR125? Sort of am after pipes not dissimilar to the ones for my NSR250 MC18:

Added reply in a thread What would you pay for this 1994 CR500? 11/30/2014 6:15 PM

Yeah, the engine alone would be worth a few thousand (not with that cylinder though).

http://www.travispastrana.com/#/en/SPONSORS/ Suzuki is still listed as a sponsor. Like others have said, might be more of a Cernics thing, but he has a Suzuki logo tucked away somewhere. Even the RMzilla had the Suzuki logo still on the seat cover and ... more »

The air filter was layered with grime; No idea how it even started. But yeah, remove all the graphics except for the shrouds and stuck some spare fender graphics I had lying around. It's a '02 model and besides being hard to start, it's a fun bike.

Added reply in a thread I have an obsession with before and afters Rebuilds post yours. 10/25/2014 11:02 PM

The only thing wrong with it was a kinked timing chain (due to failed tensioner). Was a budget build though, so I used cheapy parts and stuff around the garage. The Tusk gaskets on the head are crappy so I need to replacement with ... more »

Added reply in a thread locking up spare bikes 10/16/2014 12:41 AM

If you can't do any of the suggestions above, just drag along a wife/daughter/friend to sit in the car and mind the bike. Helps to park in a way (once you've unloaded your bike you're gonna ride) so a would-be thief can't simply roll the bike off. If ... more »

Added reply in a thread CR125 Transmission is hard to turn, crankcases seems difficult to get together. 9/24/2014 6:58 AM

So I found out the problem; Nothing wrong with Wiseco (i think, at this point). What happened was, this was the first bike I ever rebuilt. And when I rebuilt it I did two wrong things. Obviously the first thing wasn't replacing the crank but funds were ... more »

Added reply in a thread making a 125 fast 9/24/2014 6:48 AM

If you're on the chunky side of things, lose 10 kg. On my clapped out 98 CR125 I was still neck and neck with my friends new (at the time) YZ125 (2011). He was a bit heavier than I was though.

I removed the main bearings again so I'll reseat the tomorrow. Hopefully that will work. I'm at my uncles place so I don't have my heat gun (or a mates blowtorch) to heat up the case half. Anyone know what a safe temperature in the oven is?

Started new thread CR125 Transmission is hard to turn, crankcases seems difficult to get together. 9/15/2014 11:33 PM

So I finally started to put my 125 motor back together and ran into a problem in the early stages. First I'll tell you what I did; All of the engine is ok, except the crank but I bought a Wiseco bottom end kit so I decided to swap out the main bearings ... more »

He rode Yamaha when he first went Pro, and a brief stint at Suzuki before going back to Honda's. Pastrana always raced on Suzuki professionally and through most of his amateurs, but I believe he did ride some Yamaha bikes at one point very early on.

You can let it sit without oil until you fix it, and put a helicoil or timesert to replace the thread. Used a helicoil to fix stripped threads in an engine case before, no problems.

Added reply in a thread Honda - don't win Sunday, still sell Monday 7/27/2014 9:03 PM

Just because they don't win championships doesn't mean they're not good bikes. I rode a 2013 CRF450 earlier in the year and it probably was the best (albeit newest) bike I've ridden. Plus, IMO, Honda have very easy engines to work on and parts are easily ... more »
