I think I can speak for many SX fans when I say that we miss seeing him compete in SX. I hope this renews his passion in racing and ignites his competitive nature compelling him to race SX in 2017. Pipe dream I know but he brings a ton of excitement to the sport.

Beautiful bike! Can you post a video of it running? Preferably holding your phone sideways so I can watch on my tv?

I ran accross this "youth large" jersey on Ebay. It only says "L" on the tag. Maybe you can get confirmation it is or isn't a youth size. Good luck. Let us know.

I did have a '99 KX125 which I mocked up for a minute. It looked good in the garage, but I had too many other projects at the time. I want a cleaner platform (and preferably a 2002 model-year) before I get that involved.

I have a full set of used plastics and complete seat from Matt Walker's 2002 PC bike. I will surely make a replica bike if I ever buy a 99-02 KX125. It's on the bucket list. I really like those bikes too.

You are in luck! I just removed the stock needle out of my '93 kx125. I replaced it with a 1469, which was recommended by Pro Circuit. Get a hold of me and I'll send it your way. Text if best (916) 337-5862. -Ryan

Thanks Dick! Yes, it is all coming together nicely. I finally got the long-awaited #100 backgrounds from EVO MX yesterday. I will be getting the number plates dialed soon.

Oh, by the way, if you're refurbishing a kx125 swingarm, they are painted. You can use a "stainless steel" spray paint. It seems to match well. Although, a nice scotchbrite finish is a nice look. Make sure all your scrubbing lines are perfectly straight. ... more »

Super stoked to have nabbed this year-correct 1993 Hotwheels/Splitfire PC jersey to go along with my build.

Hi there. Thanks for the compliment. Sorry for the slow reply. I use Rustoleum clear coat for a gloss finish, Krylon for a Matte Finish, high heat stuff for cases, and flame proof for pipes. They all seem to work well. I suggest the glossy look for the ... more »

I had this problem before. I noticed the header pipe would glow red at idle. Would you guys agree that's another indicator of a lean condition? Richening the pilot helped both issues for me.

Speaking of Twinwall bars, I always wondered if the end pieces would slide out of the bars. Does anyone know if they are fuzed together somehow or what?

I bought a zinc coating kit off ebay. The brand is "Eastwood", if I remember correctly. It works really good to renew original fasteners. It helps protect against corrosion and rust. It also comes with a polishing paste for the final polish.

X2 Did you remove the timing chain? Could it be off one tooth when you put it back together???
