Nice CR! I made another steel silencer repackable. I ground the rear edge so the the center wound seperate from back. Then I sliced the rear portion off. A 1/2" strip of sheet metal was formed around the cone and tack welded on one side. A couple a sheet ... more »

I appreciate it. The key I have found to buying a few in my collection is polite perseverance. I once spotted a 79 RM125 leaned up against a house, muddy as it was being ridden. It was obvious bone stock original.I like those kind when buying. Stopped ... more »

I have a 83 KX125 too. That is definitely 83 if you don't know. I paid 800-900 14 years ago for one similar in condition. Don't get caught up in small stuff like oil level or rad level or clutch stuck.A bike sits a month and the clutch will stick. This ... more »

I own both a TC125 and TC250. The 250s always need smaller jets from my experience with these and others models because of the vacuum/draw is greater on the larger bike. Both my bikes have slides cut on the mikuni carbs.The main jet is 30-40 smaller ... more »

Most fox recommendations back in the day was 1/4-1/2 longer than stock as most wanted more travel. I Built 16 1/2s fox air shox for my own 1979 RM125. I had to mix and match 2 different sets together to get that length. You may get those new repo ones ... more »

Thank you! I spent hours pouring over issues and google trying to find where that was. I kept think it was in 250 shootout issue or the modified 250 test issues.

I never forgot that DB article. Same time it was printed in 1985 I was racing 125s,,and watched the 250 class starts to get my gate timing. All season at Flagler this 82 RM250 pulled holeshots against new 250s.How impressive! 30 years later I found a ... more »

The 1982 RM250 was fast for it's day,,,so fast I remember reading a 250 shootout test issue a few years later and they had a sidebar explaining a stock 82 showed up while they where testing,,and that bike beat the current models they where testing in ... more »

I also have the v force,,but stock porting. I found that my bike,,with the Buds pipe and matching shorty silencer,,needs the power valve turned in 4 turns if I remember. Trying to run less gave me a bog. 32.5 pilot,42-75 needle top clip,S-7 nozzle,,,and

Kelsey made me a one off insert for my 18 TC125,,,,,I like it. I run straight 110 race gas,,so it's high compression. I feel like it improved the bottom and gave my bike a wider power delivery. Buds HGS pipe/silencer and stock porting. I only race MX,,but ... more »

I have both a 18 TC125 that has some mods,, and a 17 TC250 with carb mods,reeds,and longer PC silencer. The 250 is a torquey ride and would be fine with the stiffer PV spring ,turned in 4 turns or so,and good jetting. Good jetting smooths out the delivery. ... more »

My 2018 TC125 when stock would hesitate when I was rolling out of corner and twisted it wide open..it would initailly take off then fall on its face then recover and wind out. My solution was 32.5 pilot,s7 nozzle,42-75 in middle or top(depending on weather) ... more »

Yes I have blued the header on my 125s and 80s(yes I have competed on 80s in past couple years for fun). Good jetting and running wfo will do it.
