Last year we had a KX 109 built by Terry Varner and it was making 32hp. I had a friends JMS KX 109 for comparison and it had slightly better bottom but a little less over-rev. Most builders do not like making the KX a 112 due to the exhaust bridge. The ... more »

Our 16 KTM 125 with only 5hrs had loose inserts. I added some red loctite to get by until we sold it.

NO FEAR was originally a spinoff T-shirt Company from the old 80's Life's a Beach / Bad Boy Club. When baseball players and everyone you could think of started wearing the shirts etc.the brand lost it's image and the MX gear soon followed.

You must always check the squish on the KTM's due to their tight tolerance.

Yes, we had a new fully modded KTM 125 and my son didn't like it as well as the YZ. A few of his friends felt the same way and switched to the YZ125. We did mod the YZ motor and it is on par with the KTM. If you look at the Loretta's results the YZ's ... more »

If the Japanese made new 2-strokes that would give the consumer a reason to buy new. There are several people buying older 2-strokes because they want to buy Japanese and that is their only option beside Yamaha. Maybe when Yamaha is not selling every ... more »

There are several kids that sold their KTM's in favor of the YZ 125. Though if I had the money I would buy a few TM 125s. I was amazed how good their 125 ran.

Yes I agree about staying away from the 16 model. We spent a lot of money on the forks and they were still crap. Now as far as your statement about the Modded bikes not being as fast is not true. We had a fully blown national level EBR KTM 125 and it ... more »

I didn't want to! I was sold on the fact the KTM was better. But in the end the YZ worked out better for us. Lap times and the smile on my kids face don't lie. He likes the YZ better. Though if money was no object I would buy a few TM 125s. I rode a ... more »

Lighter riders moving from minis to 125s will experience headshake to a degree on any bike but what we experienced was worse than normal. It was only going into breaking bumps after accelerating down a fast straight. It happened when my kids friends ... more »

What class do race? What is your weight and ability level? I have never heard anyone have anything good to say about the 4CS forks. Maybe you are not fast enough to expose the problems? But forget about the suspension and let's talk about the other issues. ... more »
