Started new thread CR125 Reed Valve Baffle 8/14/2016 2:29 AM

So I'm doing some fairly extensive modifications to my CR125 (2003) including the Air Striker carb and 03 KX125 pipe (already bought and prepped up). Upon taking the engine apart to rebuild, I noticed there is a baffle inside the intake (white plastic)

Added reply in a thread 2018 RM 250??? 8/12/2016 4:12 AM

Why would Suzuki make a 250? Where is there a professional racing league on the world scale where a 250 can be competitive. I can believe them making a 125 over a 250 as at least you can race a 125 competitively.

Added reply in a thread Can anyone ID these parts? 8/5/2016 8:33 PM

I'm guessing the shock is a 1994 model too. Really want to just get the year/model on the electrics as it would be a shame to throw it away.

Started new thread Can anyone ID these parts? 8/5/2016 8:31 PM

So trying to clean out some parts so I can make space. Might as well sell them or give them away rather then throw 'em away. I got these with a 98 CR125 I bought some years ago. Any help is appreciated! If you want anything let me know too, good deals

I know people say get insurance but... people like me just want THEIR bike. The best thing is a dog. One that makes noise is perfect, i.e. a small dog will do the job. My family dog was a Chihuahua/Silky Terrier and every house around our one was burgled ... more »

Added reply in a thread Spy Photos: The Production 2017 Honda CRF450R! 7/26/2016 4:49 AM

Keen to see what the 250R is like next year. a 450 is too powerful for my liking, so hopefully they carry through the changes to the 250R. I wish they would update the 450X though. I don't think it even has fuel injection yet...

Added reply in a thread Brand new or stick with used? 7/26/2016 4:44 AM

There's nothing wrong with a used bike if you go through it and check everything. Obviously the engine is the a big one but for a 2 stroke, for example, you'd be crazy to not just rebuild it right off the bat.

TP was probably fed up with X Games kind of throwing FMX to the wayside, a sport which he pretty much helped grow. I was disappointed by some of the judging though. The commentators kept throwing around numbers for difficulty and I wasn't sure if I should ... more »

Added reply in a thread Removing air from forks for transport 7/16/2016 12:40 AM

I still do that when I don't have a spare fork block or can't find mine or we're tying down a pit bike (i.e. not a full size bike). Forks aren't even compressed and the bike is rock solid.

Where and what were the size? I'm just after a filter to keep debris out of the carb.

Added reply in a thread Ridiculous prices for old two strokes 7/2/2016 1:06 AM

I bought two 2003 CR125s for $900 each. Both were pretty clapped out (one being significantly more clapped out than the other) but one I have cleaned up pretty well. They both ran when I bought them, but both had blown out silencers, terrible tyres,one ... more »

Started new thread CRF50 Foam Filter 7/1/2016 5:40 AM

So I got a little 50 just to muck around on i.e. wheelies. And of course it didn't come with the stock air box nor even a air filter of any kind. So I jumped on eBay to get a foam filter and I can't find any to fit the stock carburetor. What's the deal ... more »

I have a set of Tyga pipes for my NSR250R. Excellent build quality, almost too good for motocross. Last time I talked to Paul from Tyga I think he mentioned they are more likely to do pipes for KTMs although I did ask for him to maybe do Honda pipes

Added reply in a thread craigslist droool...for once 4/20/2016 3:55 AM

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.

Added reply in a thread Brand Loyalty 4/15/2016 6:35 PM

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 »

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.

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 »
