I have the exact same bikes and its funny the ratio is about the same for me. I ride the 125 when I want to get back in touch with my wild side!

Added reply in a thread 04 CR250r will not stop running 1/14/2016 7:56 AM

Just going to add my 2 cents because I have had a strange issue with a few of the CRs I have had. I have an 02, while riding one day it felt like the throttle got stuck open so I pulled in the clutch and pushed the kill switched, nothing happened, it ... more »

Added reply in a thread whats wrong with my 2 stroke?! 12/1/2015 7:10 AM

Start with this^^^ I have seen this a few times before. The spark plug may be sparking but at completely the wrong time. Few other ideas. Take the plug out and spray in some starting fluid (just a little) and see if you can get the bike to fire for a ... more »

Added reply in a thread (*)Vital 2 Stroke Community ain't helping the cause... 3/20/2015 10:03 AM

What is it your asking people to do? You want people to spend serious money so we see a pro qualify for a national on a 2stroke? If I have 8k around I am going to put it down on a new camper. I have a couple of 2 strokes, 2002 cr250 and a 2003 CR125. ... more »

Added reply in a thread When you tell people you ride motocross... 9/10/2014 8:54 AM

I never talk about moto to anyone expect motocross people. Its not that I am embarrassed about racing moto. Its just to hard to explain to people why I do it and how difficult the sport really is. Normal people have no idea what the sport is, people ... more »

Added reply in a thread How much could I get for my bike? 6/27/2014 9:46 AM

The truth is your not going to get a lot for it, even though its mint! I did the same thing to a 125, turns out you don't get a lot more money compared to a turd bike. What I noticed is few people wanna spend more than 2500 on any used dirt bike no matter ... more »

Added reply in a thread Please describe what my 2t throttle response should be. 5/2/2014 8:53 AM

I have an 03 125, I did a major rebuild on it before I even rode it. When I got it together it had that same bog you are describing, it just did not seem like a normal 125. Turns out it was my powervalve, I had the gear one tooth off so it was open way ... more »

I did one of the races last year there on my old very tired 86 CR250. I can even begin to tell you the thrill of being on the starting line with a bunch of other guys with bikes from that era. It was one of my favorite races and I cant wait to get back ... more »

Pete24... your age alone will get you in the vintage class. You must have some 80's bike you can ride

Added reply in a thread So I guess we ride MX....because we are " Depressed " ? What the heck? 2/7/2014 11:33 AM

A while ago I went through a depression of sorts (I think). At least that's what my shrink said. She pushed anti depressants and other meds but I just did not want to go down that road. She learned from me that riding moto was the best therapy, it was ... more »

Don't be afraid of what's really in the back of Pete's van, he only uses the gag ball and that leather zipper mask thing at night so you should be safe.

Personally I have done worse, I put an XR200 motor in a CR125 frame to make the best handling XR200 in world...but the slowest bike ever. I think you are going to make a neat bike. And if you take the time to freshen up the 85 motor I think you will ... more »

This is a valid question, and the perfect race to see that would be a 18 year old Damon Bradshaw and an 18 year old Jerry on the same track from the 80's, then on a track from today. I think Jerry is a fast rider with more heart than most anyone around, ... more »
