Added reply in a thread 1987-1989 CR125R cylinder year Identification?? 6/19/2019 11:21 PM

I had the 87 and a couple friends had the 88 and 89. If I remember and I'm not 100% sure but I think all the port timings were the same except for the heads and the CDI boxes had different ignition timing. The 87 had some reliability issues so the 88 ... more »

Not to bust your bubble but that is a 1982 motor. The 81 motor was piston port/semi case reed, the 82 was full reed valve which is what you have. The cylinders will not interchange from case to case. Both are great motors by the way. The tank decals ... more »

Get a degree wheel and time out your port duration's the right way. Find out at what degrees the ports are opening and closing and the total blow down, you can much more accurately understand whats happening within the motor and work with a good tuner ... more »

What about Marv? The guy was absolutely ripping and if not for a bad gate pick for the main and a small mistake in stalling the bike, he probably would've won the damn thing!

Added reply in a thread How well does powdercoat hold up on AL frames? 2/11/2019 3:05 AM

The prep work is most important also the quality of powder. You want to make sure you use the right media to blast the part, it should feel rough and scratchy so the powder has something to bite into once it melts and cures. I've had plenty parts powder ... more »

They KX 125's had strong motors back in the day. If any bike to have that kind of power band I would say the 97 YZ 125, that bike had great low end and much more mid and top then the older 84-85 KX's. Yamaha's first few year case reed motors had very ... more »

Yes, everything that could be powder coated is, cases, frames, hubs, brake pedal, pull rods etc. The cases took a lot of time and prep work but it was worth it and yes I get yelled at lot. “That bike needs to go back in the shop TODAY” LOL
