The tangs on the rads that the guard clips into are soft and easy to work with. Your guards are only a few mm's off so you may be able to bend the tangs inwards a little. Then use a zip tie or 2 to be safe if the guards are still a little loose

Christ, that team could cause utter devastation. Even though I'm a Simpson fan, I'd also go: MX1- Anstie MX2- Searle Open- Wilson

Yes! Great article and love the use of the forum (quotes) along with the reporting. As usual, photos are spot on. Keep up the great work. This is why I love Vital.

I've also seen it done, on a YZ over at thumpertalk. He had to do some questionable material removal and use washers to get the correct spacing for the disc, but it did fit. I will try and find the thread. Brembo Master Cylinders are easily used however ... more »

When were they last serviced? That's always a good place to start with a poor performing fork. Tell us what bike, model etc you're riding and we will be able to give you more advice

Awesome! Fantastic attention to detail, a truly beautiful build. I'm so torn on whether I like the aluminium tank or not. I can see it being a massive benefit what with not having tank decals that bubble and get rubbed through in 5 hours. It looks as ... more »

Added reply in a thread 88 RM250 Rear Brake Calipers 6/16/2017 1:41 AM

The RM250 nearly always shares the same braking systems as the RM125, so keep an eye out for a rear brake caliper for both models when searching ebay etc I believe the brake system changed for 89+ so doubtful a newer brake system would work. However ... more »

I also spotted this in the pit bits and found it very interesting, its quite obvious but something that I hadn't even considered before! I will definitely follow the strategy above when I do the next strip and build

Do you know the history of these, where they came from etc? Do you know the offset? Email me at rusboyles@googlemail.com Cheers

Added reply in a thread RM125 rear master cylinder options 6/7/2017 3:45 AM

It would be interesting to see if you could modify the frame to suit a modern rear MC. All it is is a plate with 2 holes in, I'm thinking you could remove the existing rear MC mounting bracket and re weld a new blank one onto the frame, and then drill ... more »

That would have been an interesting combination! I can't imagine Everts being impressed with the way Barcia rides a bike! His style is pretty much the opposite of how Everts rides.

Added reply in a thread Best Suspension Setup for RM Chassis 6/6/2017 7:49 AM

Completely understand. However if you get the chance to ride the newest model RM125 I would highly recommend you do. The changes they made are noticeable. If you have 05 triples then that gives you lots of options. Either run your KYB, or go for 05+ ... more »

Added reply in a thread Standing Difficulties 6/5/2017 8:25 AM

Sounds like a fitness/strength issue. To ride in the standing position you need good all round strength, particularly in your core. Try doing workouts which use full body movements, check out Ryan Hughes's training videos. You could also buy a set of ... more »

Although I agree, you cant just can the 450's. They are a fully established CC bike made by every major brand and none of them are going to be happy if they are forced to stop production due to them being banned in pro racing = it wont happen. Restrictions ... more »

Added reply in a thread Suspension for 2004 Suzuki RM 125 6/5/2017 5:32 AM

Cant say for the 04, but for my 08 RM250 I needed to bore the lower clamp by 1mm to hold RMZ forks. I can never remember what year the RM125 went to the newer linkage/triple clamp, I think it was 04 in which case you will need to do the same. You will ... more »

Added reply in a thread Suzuki RM triple clamps options for 48mm forks? 6/5/2017 5:19 AM

Boring out your triples would be the best way to go, you wont need to mess around with steering stems and getting steering stops sorted. However once bored out you wont be able to use the triples to hold the stock RM forks again, so would be handy to ... more »

Added reply in a thread Best Suspension Setup for RM Chassis 6/5/2017 5:14 AM

Lots of options here K-Dubbb. I guess the ultimate way to go would be to buy on 05+ RM125 which benefits from a different style rear linkage, different triple clamp offset, Showa suspension, along with a whole host of engine and brake upgrades. If you ... more »
