Just yesterday i got the correct fork guards for the above 1989 Mugen forks. They differ in shape to all following models and these days are as rare as these forks as well. I searched the net, various forums and also vintage marketplaces...but in the

My hand is still hindering me from doing any work, let alone think about riding! It might be another couple of months. Meanwhile i ordered a quick-turn throttle which i hope lets me continue to ride when my movement might not get back to where it was

Here you go! I'll post pics of the "stock" '89 alongside so you can compare the two. There's no port modifications done to the '89, just the addition of that tiny port on the exhaust and some material has been taken off at the base to have it sit a little

Last year i was a lucky guy the italians let me compete at that race in Montevarcchi since my bike was still outfitted with a '90 Mugen engine. But it was clear that for 2016 i had to get a good running '89 ATAC engine. I already have that sweet stock

Maybe the rear numberplates are not your design...??? I just wonder if you know that the german words in the white cross on the rear numberplate are spelled wrong? (Wrong term). It's really a strange read for me. BTW - I'm swiss and our written language

What a nice bike! But you already have a custom exhaust. No good? Just give it some revs and it will get some nice coloured tan...

Yes-same size front and rear. It makes some small wrinkles but that's no problem at all. There is a whole thread with more details and pictures on my bike on thumpertalk here: http://www.thumpertalk.com/topic/993917-my-new-cr-125-afs-aluminium-framed-mugen-powered/

Correct-it's the design that changed. The CR 250 was always 1 year ahead so in '90 the 125 still had the "old" design with the smaller volume airbox while the 250 had already the bigger, grey plastic airbox. That VRP airbox was already much bigger 1

I'm using those Schwalbe Fatbike tubes all year long in all my wheelsets. I guess it depends on the terrain you ride in but over here they hold up really well. I don't compromise in tire pressure either. I'm running as low pressures as i did before.. Those tubes weigh just 380g/pc. so that's easily 2 lbs less than your typical heavy-duty MX innertube.

I know-but actually riding these engines speaks volumes. And if you look at Honda RS 125 GP pistons you also see they are flat-top. Also the HRC kit pistons. Those engines were all about top-speed as well...

Just try a Mugen and then tell me flat top pistons are "bad" for top-end
