I personally prefer the 90 over the 91. I am in the lucky position to have the choice between different bikes with different Mugens

Just 3 weeks ago i had the opportunity to test ride new 2016 Yamahas and Kawasakis. Since the suspension of my AF was off for revision i took my '98 CR 125 along (with '91 Mugen kit). I got a lot of flack already in italian forums because of my comments:

No - those are Kite triple clamps. Mugens are very hard to find. They got made up to '91 only and these days they are collectors items with sometimes ridiculous prices.

To save weight i basically swapped out every bolt on my bike. Most is Titanium. But the rear axle nut is aluminium and i got it from a guy in Italy who does them for Supermoto. Aluminium nut:

As mentioned already Mugens have the exhaust ports AND HPP valves/guides placed 1,5mm higher compared to stock cylinders. The other ports are raised only about 1mm. Compression is like stock (so rather low). In the last 25 years i have seen many 125s

No-as mentioned everyone believes it was about lighter weight but that wasn't the case. But it was much stiffer than the stock Cromoly frame and this translated in a much better feel/ride. Earlier this year i weighed my '90 VRP together with my ultralight

I remember at the time it was a completely different feel. The aluminium chassis was so much stiffer than the stock cromoly frame. The same suspension would work much better with this frame, the bike tracked straight while the stocker was going "everywhere".

This is Not a 'crazy one' - it's something very, very special - and well beyond the usual 'bling mobile' . I, and a lot of others here, have followed 'LuckyNinos' many posts on his VRP(s - he's got a few of them!) in the Old School Moto section. Thank you Nino, for sharing your wonderful bikes with us.

Thank you for...more
