There's just a lot of blabla here. I'm a diehard Honda rider since almost 30 years but seeing they simply ADDED 7 lbs over a already 6 lbs heavier precedessor....means we are now looking at a 13 lbs heavier bike than the leaders of the class. This alone is making it a big NONO for me. Then regarding power: a 10% increase won't still be enought to get even close to the Austrian powerplants. Handling alone won't help it much. We are still looking at a overweight and underpowered bike.

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/

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.

You are right but in the end it still has to look good. At my age i don't do it for any championship races anymore but for the pure joy of it. And these graphics are at least lighter than the ones i used before. So i was still removing weight by doing so (-55g total). And if you look closely you could see i also added a steering stabilizer and PHDS bar mounts which both add some weight BUT in the end it is also the performance that counts and these items do awesome. I was not after a record weight. If so i would still put lighter parts...I just wanted to reach the lower weight limit which i succeeded in. By putting my usual handguards and exhaust protection i'm just at the lower limit which is perfect for me. This also includes the graphics.

Thanks - your brakes are really awesome ! You will be surprised by how much the steering stabilizer calms your ride in the choppy stuff and at speed.

It's UFO plastic. But o didn't just change the plastic. It's a CRF chassis which got modified to accept the 125cc engine. NOT a 125cc bike with plastics to just look like a CRF.
