Added reply in a thread Are people actually buying these over price used 125's? 9/21/2017 8:03 PM

I bought two 03 CR125s (from two different people, at different ends of Australia) for 900 AUD each. Probably about 600-700 USD. Parted one out on eBay and completely rebuilt the other (like, literally everything except the head bearings). Recently bought ... more »

Started new thread Relocating CR250 CDI Box 9/3/2017 5:26 AM

I've installed a front end of an 09 CRF450 on my 03 CR250 and want to install the steering damper. obviously the CDI box is in the way and I understand the CRF CDI is significantly smaller than the CR's one. I was thinking of places to put the CDI box ... more »

Added reply in a thread 02 CR250R pipe question 9/2/2017 5:11 AM

I haven't read anywhere that can confidently say that there is significantly better power gains (or any gain for that matter) from running a shorter silencer. From a logic standpoint, given that there is no back pressure created by the silencer itself, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Washing your bike at the track. 8/25/2017 10:17 PM

I'd much rather wash my bike at home than haul extra supplies. I just throw in my gear in the back seat, a small socket set and an adjustable wrench, get some ramps and load the bike up. Way too much effort to bring a drum and pressure washer since I ... more »

Added reply in a thread Someone explain something about freestyle guys 8/12/2017 5:06 PM

At the 01 X Games Pastrana rode his RM125 and had to start outside the course to make one of the jumps (I think it was 100ft or so). Given the small stadiums they ride in, a 450 or 250T is the way to go. I doubt the weight difference is enough to compensate ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2018 Rm125?? 8/11/2017 7:20 PM

You can still buy crankcase sets for an RM125 though? I doubt Suzuki destroyed any molds. I know Honda must keep the originals because they recently started making parts that were previously discontinued for my NSR250. Additionally, doesn't Suzuki support ... more »

Started new thread CR250 Cylinder Studs - Long or Short? 8/2/2017 2:40 AM

I bought a new cylinder and was tempted to use the studs from the old cylinder, however I'd rather just get new ones. The microfiche says 4 long ones and 2 short ones although I was wondering if I can just get 6 short ones as it looks nicer. My CR125 ... more »

Added reply in a thread Do you have more 2 stroke or 4 stroke memories? 6/17/2017 5:22 AM

I didn't have too many bikes growing up but my cousins 93 Polaris Trailboss 350 is one of my favourites in my youth. I know it's a quad bike but when it came to riding a PW80 or a 350L, the quad bike was way more fun. So all up... definitely 2 stroke ... more »

Added reply in a thread Honda Twostroke Parts 4/19/2017 1:54 AM

That's only partly true. Honda will reproduce certain parts given enough demand. There's no way to determine how many parts to manufacture or how long a bike's "life" will be. For example, certain bikes might be more likely to be scrapped (i.e. farm ... more »

Added reply in a thread Anyone try these 3/24/2017 5:05 AM

Wow, that's a neat idea. I'm keen to get a set given the fork tubes (gold parts) on the CR250 budget bike I got are completely knackered. I was going to use this carbon wrap but I hate the adhesive. I looked around and you can get 50mm heat shrink wrap ... more »

Added reply in a thread Save budds creek tax troubles 12/27/2016 4:29 AM

Sounds like this dude needs to get his priorities in order. No one forced him to do anything... a local track having financial issues I can understand, but a track which is routinely used for professional racing? Something isn't adding up here.

Added reply in a thread Rebuild 12/27/2016 4:24 AM

Wouldn't it be easier / cheaper to just part out the bike and buy another one? Or just buy a second-hand head or something like that. And it seems like there may be some other components inside the head you maybe could reuse? For the price of that engine, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Methods to sale... 12/6/2016 3:51 AM

Gumtree (Australia's Craigslist... we have Craigslist but no one uses it) is the cheapest way to sell anything. Just set your price and wait. Putting up with the poor offers is annoying but eventually you'll get a good bite. I sold a 1999 CRM250 for ... more »

Added reply in a thread KTM publicly testing FI Two Stroke 12/4/2016 11:38 PM

I have no idea why people whinge about complexity or reliability. Plenty of boat motors, snowmobiles and even older GP bikes had some form of fuel injection without issue. The benefits might be slightly more weight but I would wager that would be offset ... more »

Added reply in a thread Long term effects from riding wheelies 12/3/2016 3:47 AM

Depends where the pick up is for the oil pump. I have heard of both a CRF450 and DRZ400 blowing the bottom ends apart due to extended wheelies. You can get oil pick up relocation kits specifically for stunt bikes.

Started new thread Best all-rounder? (MX, Enduro, etc) 10/30/2016 3:37 AM

So I have an 03 CR125 and it's a nice bike but is woeful on the trails and is a little difficult to ride on '4-stroke tracks'. Also, most (all) tracks near to me aren't groomed very often so traction is hard to come by and the poor 125's suspension takes ... more »

Well you can probably get the bike back if you sign a waiver so you can't sue them if the bike has other issues. Like others have said, getting someone to grind back the weld and fix it was the cheapest solution. But $700 for a fitted new frame is pretty ... more »
