I'm 55, and I've always owned 125's. When I borrowed a 250f, I'm pretty sure I was faster right away, but I like the way 125's make you ride: All out! In my class the bike is not the biggest factor. Yes, the 450's can pull me in the straights, but that

My 2005 YZ125 would qualify. After adding SSS forks and an upgraded shock, my "Vintage" bike is almost identical to the 2018.

If my wallet spoke to me that way, I'd teach it some manners

. Nice bike. I hope you're able to get it soon.
Added reply in a thread What are these? YZ/F forks 10/6/2017 9:02 PM

These forks are from an '05 YZ125 or YZ250. I wasn't aware of the 250F and 450F having these forks too. It makes sense though. The spacing between the fork centers should be 2mm smaller than '06+, matching the '04 and older bikes. Also, in '06, the bar ... more »

This Sometimes you have to slow down in order to go faster. I'm always trying to ride at 100%. It's my nature. But I found that backing it down just slightly gets me relaxed and then my pace picks up and I'm riding faster than ever, and it's just flows. ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2006 yz 250 oem piston question 10/4/2017 1:59 AM

For my YZ125 one of the guys at the local shop who used to be involved with Yamaha pro racing back in the 2 stroke days, recommended using a D piston regardless what the cylinder is marked once the cylinder has some wear on it. That's what their pro ... more »

I have a dumbell rack with 10-40lbs in 5 lb increments, a small bench, and some barbells as well. I can get a great workout just with the weights, plus pushups and an ab wheel, but not very good for legs. For cardio (and overall fitness and strength) ... more »

Added reply in a thread Should Pro Moto be faster or slower in the future? 9/28/2017 9:59 PM

Slowing it down with any means other than limiting some specs (cc's), or making sure that all of the bikes have the exact same amount of power doesn't give the manufacturer's (or aftermarket companies) room to innovate. It's better to set some limits, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Has Anyone Tried These ZETA KYB AOS Pistons Yet? 9/28/2017 9:43 PM

Thanks Derek! So, it makes sense that bottoming may be slightly harsher with the open piston and missing top o-ring, but not really (or so slight that it doesn't matter) with the bleed holes drilled in the plastic piston. With the open piston or with ... more »

Added reply in a thread Has Anyone Tried These ZETA KYB AOS Pistons Yet? 9/28/2017 11:06 AM

I've been looking at them for my YZ125. I'll be going for the solid ones with both O-rings. It's hard to believe that KYB would leave the pistons solid without the relief holes for 12 years, if having the piston solid wasn't for a reason. I'd really ... more »

We need to manage the speed like most other motor sports. It's very, very important going forward. There's quite a bit of feedback on the last 2 pages of this thread where I posted the following: http://www.vitalmx.com/forums/Moto-Related,20/ALTA-at-A1,1327270 ... more »

The 98-2001 have 6 gears and are much heavier than the 02-04 (At least it feels like it when lifting it up on the stand.) Apart from the Subframe and plastics, the frame, forks and wheels are different too. The 2002-2004 are also 5 speed and have minor ... more »
