More photos so you can see all of the edge around the opening. There is a small Knick out in one place.

I took the impeller of my 1986 CR125 off and found some pitting. I suspected it was not making a good seal. There is appears what to be a weep hole on the bottom of the side cover. Here is what I found. The rubber seals were mush. Do you think the cover

My guess is this should be straight.

Thanks, I think I will just go ahead and replace mine on my 1986 YZ125. The bike sat for 5 years. Before that it was ridden for years without replacing them by the previous owner.

This is my favorite year bike. Fantastic job!

How long do reed valves typically last? I hear a lot of people say they replaced the reed valves and saw a power increase. Obviously their valves need to be replaced.

I had a pair of 1990 or 1991 CR125R shocks but people told me the 1986 shocks were better. Of course they were not CR250 shocks. Seeing that I weigh 210 maybe I should get some 250 forks and a 250 rear spring. Would both work with the 125 frame?

Thanks Matt. I will check my cover this weekend. I had one bad area but I do not see much pitting. I will know better when I get it off. I think I will be ok. Even if I do not need a cover at this time I plan to buy one in the near future to have as

Thanks Smed, I ordered the UFO fenders and they look great. Now I need to sand the gas tank and polish it up.

I hear you! I am doing a 1986 CR125 now. I may have to get an aluminum clutch cover. I will know when I get the old one off. When I take the clutch cover off do I need to remove the impeller? Also, how do I know if the seal is bad or the cover needs ... more »

How do you like your cover from Russell? I have heard they work great. Looks like shipped to the US is around $360.

It is not corroded very much. I was lucky in that respect.

I bookmarked this site. I guess I really meant magneto cover.
