So I was gonna order a top end rebuild kit, but it turns out going 100% OEM is the way to go and is much cheaper. In addition to a top end and water pump rebuild, the shock needs some work too. I was wondering what is required out of the OEM parts. I ... more »

I have never seen anywhere that says Japanese OEM parts breakdown faster. But generally for anything, euro parts are more expensive. Honda and Yamaha have always been pretty cheap for me.

2 stroke pipes are typically quite universal. Plus, this one was $80 for the complete system and a PC pipe was over $300 (AUD). So worth it right now. Plus, apparently it's the best pipe.

The CR silencer fitted perfectly onto the end. The rubber Honda thing was difficult to get onto the Kawasaki pipe though, but a little oil or lube made it work. The kickstarter knuckle is worn so right now it does hit the pipe but once I get a new one ... more »
Added reply in a thread OEM Parts for a shock rebuild 9/20/2015 8:57 PM
Well I'm not gonna do that much rebuilding of shocks to need my own supply of nitrogen. My local shop can do nitrogen filling for a small fee. All I need to know is which parts are needed.
Added reply in a thread OEM Parts for a shock rebuild 9/20/2015 6:19 PM
Well I have 7 motorcycles and out of those, 3 dirt bikes. I have a pretty good tool library so I'm not worried about doing it. Literally the rear shock is the only part of the bike I haven't done myself but after getting a few specialty tools (mainly ... more »

So after some recommendations from the internet (where everything is 100% true and factual) I fitted an 03 KX125 to my 03 CR125. According to many posts online, this is the best exhaust. It's mated to the Pro Circuit silencer that came with the bike.

Added reply in a thread Why no EFI 2 strokes? 9/13/2015 7:12 PM
Pretty silly points if anyone with half a brain reads it. Fuel injection is way more precise than a carburetor and thus can produce more power. I mean, why did Honda go to a injected system on the legendary NSR500? Many 2 strokes in the past have been ... more »
Added reply in a thread Two Smoke Silencer Weights 8/29/2015 10:29 PM
The easiest way to get a lighter silencer is just to cut the end off. Never read any reports that said silencer length affect performance, only the noise of the bike. With that said, can't see the silencer being the part worth saving weight on. They're ... more »
Added reply in a thread Removing transmission and case bearings; Can it be done? 8/18/2015 7:50 PM
I've reused bearing when changing to another set of cases. I used a blind bearing puller (Rocky Mountain has them) and lightly tapped out the bearings with a slide hammer. I also checked them afterwards for play and made sure they were still usable. ... more »

They may not have won the championship but Tomac destroyed Dungey during the first few rounds. That's what Team Honda is capable of, they're just cursed ever since they made the poor decision of letting Carmichael go.
Added reply in a thread Wild idea about changing the scoring system? 8/17/2015 10:53 PM
If you give out points based on people being lapped, what about people who fall over, crash DNF etc? It just leaves the door open for someone to run away with the championship. Also, why does it need to be exciting every second of the race? Motorsport ... more »
Added reply in a thread Pastrana at Straight Rhythm? 8/8/2015 7:38 PM
Pastrana is an old school rider. He raced against Reed/Carmichael/Windham etc so his style is from that era. You never really saw Reed or Carmichael doing scrubs. Pastrana's strong point has always been whoops and rollers as well, not particularly rhythm ... more »

Where did you get the seat cover from? I've got pretty much the same bike colour scheme, except your white plastics are black on my bike (it's a 125, 03 model).
Added reply in a thread 03 CR125 Pipes 8/2/2015 6:34 AM
In that case, there is a full stock system nearby to me. I guess it would be fairly easy to install with a few brackets. Still can't believe a Kawasaki pipe is apparently the best pipe for it; and a stock one at that. I've also read the stock pipe is ... more »
Added reply in a thread 03 CR125 Pipes 8/1/2015 11:21 PM
What kind of modding? Cutting the the end partly and bending it to line up with the flange? I don't really want to cut up a brand new pipe but I'll look out for a second hand one.

Does it last? Prone to chipping or gouging, or just do 3-5 layers to prevent that?
Started new thread 03 CR125 Pipes 7/31/2015 2:18 AM
So I'm looking for a works style (raw metal finish, not cone pipe) looking pipe. It pretty much rules out FMF, and Pro Circuit don't seem to be making their works pipes for that model. DEPs look good but I can't find decent deals on shipping and stuff. ... more »

I'm hoping they do this too. A 2 stroke cup would be awesome, but a 125 only class would be the best. Even better if KTM or Yamaha (or even TM and the rest) were allowed to enter bikes as factory teams. It's a shame American motocross is locked into ... more »
