I do not have the tools to measure it so maybe I can take it to a machine shop and have them do it. Then I can get the piston needed online and take both to the machine shop.

I just realized you have rear disc brakes. I guess 1987 was the first year for that. My 1986 CR125 has rear drum brakes. Can you run vintage with front and rear disc brakes? So you went to Alabama to get the bike. You need to come back to Alabama next ... more »

I would get this 2016 yz260f unless I could get a 2019 and put this plastic on it.

Awesome picture, awesome bike, awesome retro attire. It is amazing that on these older bikes they painted everything. I assume the fenders are plastic? They are the exact color of everything else thus making them look painted.

Thanks Mark, I hear people say you can spend so much on one of these and easily outspend the value of the bike. It makes it a lot better when you got the bikes for free. So what about the piston. I figure I will check the compression tomorrow. When I ... more »

I think the point is that Clarke could have been more polite. “I am sorry sir, we appreciate your business and We will be glad to accept the tank back for a full refund. Although our policy does state that customers pay shipping on return orders.......” ... more »

One more question. A person near me is selling a 1990 CR frame for $50. It has inverted front shocks with the entire tree. It has a front wheel with the brake. The rear shock and the foot pegs. Would those inverted shocks from the 1990 work on the 1986? ... more »

I almost forgot. It has a Pro Circuit pipe. It was rusty so I put metal rescue on it and after two days the transformation was dramatic!

So while I am working the 1986 YZ125 I also have this CR125. Both were dying in a back yard with no love. When I first got her she was really crusty. Notice the electrical tape in place of the boots on the shocks...

We brought her ... more »

Sorry I missed that. Looks like UFO is the only choice. Partzilla does have the fenders in flash red.

I might just get a Clarke tank. I know they are not the exact shade of white but they are way more white than I would ever get this one.
