So I have a 2003 CR125 bogging problem where if you go WOT it stutters and stumbles and then rips with heaps of power. And I first assumed a jetting problem which could be likely since I have a KX125 pipe there. Unfortunately I can't get another pipe ... more »

Unless I'm missing something, didn't get your message.

Sent a comment about the carb by the way.

Thanks for your reply. I did get it all lined up. I mucked around with the Mikuni more and it seems to pull better now. It just really like the top end and is quite explosive in the power. Not really a bad thing but I generally like bottom end power. ... more »

So I should have measured it/research it but the 98 Carb (which is a PJ, mistakenly thought it was a PWK) is slightly too small, I think 37mm. Whereas the 03 rubber intake is 38mm. So it can be clamps down but you can still pull it out without much force ... more »

Good to know! Well I'll have to see what happens then. The engine has no leaks though so that can be ticked off the list. Power valve or carb is definitely the problem.

Also, I made a leakdown tester today so tomorrow I can test the engine. And I'm also gonna test out my CR125 1998 carb as it's a Khein PWK too. Any big difference between that and the air striker?

The play I'm talking about is in the connection on Part #10. All other parts are installed (including #12).

That's a good point; I've heard the Mikuni carb is pretty poor and the PWK is the best. Although it is $250 USD ($350 AUD roughly) so a little expensive but there will be instant benefits. I would like to have the Mikuni though so if I sell it I can ... more »

So I finally got around to fixing the bike up. I found out the water pump shaft was worn so I replaced that and did a top end because I was in the area. So I fired it up and it runs fine at idle, but feels like the RPM isn't rising too high enough. It ... 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 »
Started new thread OEM Parts for a shock rebuild 9/20/2015 3:07 AM
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 »

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 »
