Here's the starting point, from craigslist to the dream.

Since I was about 10 years old, there was absolutely nothing cooler to me than the Splitfire kx 125s.

So now 20 years later, im going to go down that road of nostalgia and build myself one. It will be a "quasi-replica" of the true factory machines (to start), but it will be rebuilt and beautifully polished nonetheless.

If anyone has parts, or hook-ups to parts for this, shoot me a message! Currently looking for a works PC pipe and excel wheels.

Here we go!

Exhaust is a bit of an eye sore. I'll be on the look out for some works stuff, but this will do to get her running.

I'll break it down this weekend, rebuild the top-end, flush and replace all the fluids, and get her started up for the first time!

Stay tuned wink

Give PC a call for triple clamps. They’re making 30 sets for the 99-01 KX125/250. Should be available in 6-8 weeks.

I think there are some
Companies like pacific pipe repair who can fix that pipe easily and cheaply and give it the factory look. I don’t have personal experience with them but do follow them on Instagram and they post some cool stuff haha

Well, I've stripped it down, and unfortunately was met with my worst nightmare. The cylinder looks pretty shot. It looks to have already been sleeved and shows signs of seizure. The studs have been replaced/re-threaded and the head won't seal with OEM studs. Dammit.

Now looking to replace the cylinder.

If anyone has expertise or advice at this point, it all helps. Thanks!

FYI I was just reading the latest Dirt Bike mag and they had a product review for US Chrome. Their cylinder had a sleeve in it too. The article said US Chrome can put their Nikasil equivalent over the steel sleeve. Cost was 260.

They may be able to fix your issue with the studs too. Might be worth looking into if those cylinders arent readily available.
