Bought this bike about a month ago and was just the saddest poor excuse for a bike. It was a complete POS! Was someones barn bike and just had no clue what he was doing or the previous owner and i honestly felt bad for the bike haha.

Here is a list of the wrong.

-Mix matched bolts (everywhere)
-Carb needed complete rebuild and cleanup
-bent radiators
-ALL front spokes were loose (also bent rim)
-rear rim had a flat spot (both exels)
-Exhaust was for a honda and was cut bent and welded to fit the bike
-sub frame had a bird shit weld holding exhaust on as well as random hardware
-front brakes were frozen
-rear breaks were a sponge
-suspension was blown out
-spray painted chain
-all bearings were rusted no grease
-all seals on motor were bad
-split the case and broken parts were jumping around (Lifter Pawl was snapped in half)
-All Trans bearings were shot
- Half of the bike was in my trash can by the time i got home basically.

The Good
-Frame is good
-brand new wiseco clutch and basket

So This is basically a full build from the hardware out!Photo

I love the bird S*** welded subframe and spray painted chain. That bike was clapped out to the max. Looks good so far. The radiators will hold up for a while but a hard crash they will separate the sides from the cores. The stock radiators could be straightened and are made of far superior aluminum.

ya i figured i probably could but i just wanted some fresh ones on the bike. I went with those just bc i could buy 3 sets before one of a high quality set

Awesome build! I've got an 04. Know anyone selling a carb slide from an rm? Mine is chipping and the part is hard to find new.

That's looking great. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Looks sweet, I have a soft spot for Suzukis

Unleaded tastes a little tangy. Supreme is kinda sour, and diesel tastes pretty good.

Little by little she’s getting closer. Just two more orders and i should have everything to get her on the dirt to let her eat!

Looks incredible. I posted this in another thread: KTM pegs are compatible with rm 125. I ordered IMS pegs for 2007 ktm 125sx, and they fit my '05 and '07 rm 125's.

Ya i seen that they match up but i think I’m going to try out the pivot pegs and see how they work. They look clean and the concept is cool so we will see if they stay on.

Thanks man! And that was my thought behind it. Not sure there is a whole lot of color considering that guys rm is really vibrant. I’m digging this one tho can’t wait for the finish look

Graphics and seat cover are dialed. I hope there is not to many colors ??‍♂️ Hah. Graphics are designed on motocal so it’s one of a kind. Still need to get the air box done was not to sure what i was going to do with it until they were on the bike. Hopefully it will be done soon for the mammoth qualifiers!Photo
