38special, I agree with feeling like you sit 'in' the seat. If you notice, my bike has a tall (flatter) seat.

"That 97 looks nice RyanLester761! How was the performance of the PC exhaust?" PC exhaust ran awesome and sounded great! I believe they claim it added 1-2 hp...not sure.

That's bad ass. I like the darker (red) seat and the forks and gold wheels...and the pipe ..and the triple clamps...damn! That bike rwally pops!

This was my '97 back in the day. Great

1996 was a good bike. I'm not sure why it would bog. Maybe you need a new piston and ring. Does it smoke excessively or drool oil down the front of the cylinder? It could need a right-side main seal. I think you're on the right track with the jetting ... more »

I was thinking the same thing! MXM, where did you get the white tank?

Nice bike Sneak! I'm pretty sure I saw your thread on that one. Great job! I agree with the smooth powerband on these bikes. I had a '97, '99, '02 and currently '05 and the '94. All easy to ride except the 94. I have a gopro video of my '94 (still with ... more »

Yes, 1996 on were great. I did a lot of reading on these engines. For what it's worth here ya go: The 1994 was the first year of the guilotine power valves. In 1995, they moved the valves 1mm closer to the piston and 1mm lower. Yamaha also made the pieces ... more »

Manpower, I hear ya on getting the newer engine in there. I have a 2005 yz125. And man, I've never riden a faster 125! The thing, like MXA says, is a full race motor. Maybe I can test fit that one soon. Thanks for the compliment.

Thanks for the replies guys! Yes, these bikes have a unique and funky shape but I agree that's what makes them look cool. Notme, this is Damon Bradshaw in 1993. I actually have some awesome video footage I took of that particular race from the mechanics ... more »

Chad and Trey are the 2 riders I pull for the most so no biased opinion here. Bottom line is everyone made a bad decision. Trey assuming Chad would go wide, Chad for the timing of retaliation (which let's be honest was pretty g-rated) The worst decision was to black flag Reed,...more

Canard comes off a bit clueless. You land on someone and take them out, you can see they are pissed as you get back on your bike, you make no visible 'sorry, my bad' and then you have no idea why Reed went after him?

Bad luck / bad timing by Reed to give him a bump just as...more

I bought a clean '94 yz125 a while back and decided to make an Emig replica bike, if possible. The 1994 model was a great find because it already has the purple frame. I contacted k-rae graphics and threw it all together. The seat cover was impossible

Motor wise, I understand the '94 had a decent mid-top powerband, although not very fast stock, but still rated a good engine. The '95 had the 35mm carb and two-stage powervalve cup (as stated above)- slow and hard to keep on the pipe. The '96 had a good ... more »
