The motor alone is worth more than the whole bike. I can ever remember seeing a 500 under $4k, unless it was a pre-water cooled model and clapped out like no other.

I had a PW80 as a youngling and fast forward to a few years when I could buy my own bike and it was a CR125. Since then I had a CRF450 and two CR125s again. Also had a number of other Honda road bikes and stuff (CBRs, NSRs, CRMs). I did have a couple ... more »

Added reply in a thread Easy DIY Wooden Dirt Bike Stand Holds 300+ lbs 4/10/2016 2:32 PM

Downside is you need to then lift a 145kg bike onto the stand. Good and cheap fix if you have the wood as scrap though.

Added reply in a thread Best bang for your buck? 4/9/2016 1:17 AM

New tyres are always the best value for money, assuming the rest of your bike is in okay condition. And since I ride 2 strokes, dialing in the carb (JD Jetting, new jets, a few tanks of fuel, whatever you need to do) is the next best thing. I'm pretty ... more »

Added reply in a thread Compact Tractor Track Maintenance? 3/31/2016 4:29 PM

My uncle has that same tractor and I did muck around with it on my track a few times. It has a diff lock if you hold the brake halfway, and a hydrostatic transmission (good for going back and forth) but otherwise is a pretty poor tractor for working ... more »

Added reply in a thread What is the best oil for a 4stroke... 3/30/2016 7:44 AM

Anything that comes in a bottle, says "motorcycle oil" on the side. I get Castrol as it was on sale, and half the price of Silkolene. I also will get Castrol premix since Silkolene is causing too much 2 stroke spooge I think.

Added reply in a thread Crushed/minced washers in transmission? 2003 CR125 3/23/2016 5:19 PM

Yeah, that's the plan. I also found the outer clutch basket to have two chipped fingers and the inside clutch basket has some slight damage but is okay. And the crank has a blue spot as well as the main bearings being near-shot. It was getting a new ... more »

So once again, more trouble with another 2003 CR125. This one I bought for $900 and obviously something was wrong with it. Turns out the 3rd gear does not engage so naturally I assumed a bent shift fork or something. But! It appears as though there is

Added reply in a thread Team Championship SX / MX? 3/16/2016 12:38 AM

I like the idea but the current system only counts the best finish. I think it should include a nominated group of riders from each manufacturer and count all those points. That way the manufacturers won't rely on a single rider to rake in the points. ... more »

Added reply in a thread 07 crf250 wont kick over!! Idk what else to try 3/13/2016 3:56 PM

Possibly up to $1000, depending on what you need done. On a 10 year old 250F, worn valve seats would be no surprise. Have you checked the clearance? Difficulty starting the engine is normally due to out of spec intake valves. If they won't shim nicely ... more »

Added reply in a thread Best way to check for blown crank seals? 3/13/2016 1:32 AM

So I gave the engine a pressure test and it seems to slowly lose pressure. It lost about 2 PSI over the course of 3-4 minutes. But I'm not 100% sure if the inlet manifold was sealed 100% but I'll try again tomorrow and maybe make a new thing to seal ... more »

So my 2003 CR125 is giving me some trouble. Last ride the bike was ride-able, albeit it slightly smokey and underpowered (bogging at the top) but I think that was mainly the carb needing work. I plan to get a Keihin PWK AS soon, but the problem is now ... more »

The 4 stroke whipper snippers are pretty good though. They're not too heavy either; If you can lift a dirt bike onto a race stand you can operate a Honda whipper snipper. It's also the preferred engine/body for concrete vibrators I've noticed. In regards ... more »

Pretty sure the loan bike for the foam bit was a CR250. I've seen him ride a KTM a few times, although very briefly. Think about it, for his purposes an RM250 is fine. I'm surprised he hasn't switched to KTM but he is a very loyal person especially to ... more »

If it was similar to what Reed did on Canard as posted earlier then it is totally not Canard's fault. We all hate it when riders cross-jump at our local tracks so how is it not the same for our professional racers? You know what options the guy has, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Direct injection when? 2/15/2016 2:49 AM

When FI (or DI, they're not the same thing) becomes cheaper for manufacturers than carbies. I'm guessing you mean 2 strokes and I'm unsure if Keihin or Mikuni make injection systems for 2 strokes. Direct or fuel injection for 2 strokes has been around ... more »

Added reply in a thread Bogging at the top end? CR125 2/8/2016 2:35 AM

I believe it is stock jetting and the power valve (and top end, brand new head) were cleaned recently when I did a top end rebuild. The bottom end is unknown since I plan to swap the motors and eventually sell one.Everything seemed in decent nick. I ... more »

This is my 2003. Mostly stock at this point with a KX125 2003 expansion chamber with a Pro Circuit silencer. I plan to do the reeds and carb, possibly the air boot too and call it a day. I wasn't even planning to do graphics. I have two 2003 CR125s,
