I got knocked out in a shoei vfx evo, currently wear a 6d atr-2 and just ordered another if that says anything. the fit,finish and feel on my head is so much better with the 6d.

loctite makes a bearing retaining compound that ive used in the past with good luck, it is green. i used it on crank bearings in a pinch with no troubles, it should work fine for a tansmission shaft bearing.

When i rebuilt an 04 rm 125 a few years back i used one off a 05 kx125 because it was alot cheaper. It worked just fine.

It’s far from the best but I was happy with how it turned out.

I’d pass on that one for $1800. Looks really rough. I bought an 04 last year that needed a stator for $1000 and rebuilt it but ended up selling this past summer.

The newer 4 stroke rear brake will work. I have a 2012 rear brake system on my 2004 kx 125.

Reply to 2003 KX125 Front Fork options 8/6/2020 4:08 PM

i just put 2011 kx250f forks on my 04 kx 125. I had to use the triple clamps off the 250 and a trick engineering steering stop. the forks were 5mm longer than the 125 forks so i have to run them higher up in the triples.everything bolted right on.

I paid $8800 otd for my 2020 yz450 back in May. I found them a little cheaper but I wasn’t driving 200 more miles to save $200 so i went with a dealer that was fairly close.

I just payed $8700 otd for mine. I priced around and couldn’t find it much cheaper so I just went to a dealer that was close. the Yamahas don’t seem to get the big rebates like the kawis do.

I have about 5 hours on my 20 yz450f and I’m super happy with it. I came off a 2019 150sx and was considering a 350 And actually rode a new husky and ktm 450 but I just couldn’t get comfortable on the ktm so I decided to change it up after I sat on a ... more »

I just picked up a 20 yz450f. The bike I got rid of was a 19 ktm but the bike before that was a YZ250. I just couldn’t get comfortable on the ktm and a yz 250 is my all time favorite bike so I wanted to get back on a yami. I’m 5’10” and about 195# and ... more »
