Hey whats going on Vital, been a member for a while but this is the first time posting a bike build. Ive been hearing a lot about MX Sports doing a 125 Dream race series on the east coast (Southwick, Budds, and High Point) and had been tossing around the idea of getting another 125 after getting off a 450 so this was the perfect excuse. Ended up finding this bike from the second owner out in the middle of PA. The thing was mint, all original even still had the nipples on the original Dunlops. I did not get any pics of the bike when I bought it (I think we all know what a YZ125 looks like haha). Since I picked it up I did the following-
Pro Circuit Works Pipe
EBC Front Brake Rotor
Bills Shorty (Stinger)
V Force Reeds
Dunlop MX3S Tires
Tag Metals bars
139 Designs Graphics
OEM Top End and a port and polish job

I have a set of ENZO A Kit forks and a Two Piece Kit Shock for it which should be going on soon as soon as I get all the parts to make them work (Shock needs a different spring collar to work, and the forks are off a 450 so I need clamps, a front wheel and axle to make it work)

Progress should be fairly slow on this build as I've got other priorities other than the bike, but I will try and keep everyone updated on how its coming along

*Ive since ridden the bike with all the mods so far and am very pleased. Very fast in the midrange and hits hard on the top. A little tweaking with the gearing and jetting and this thing will be perfect

Heres the bike so far-

That silencer is straight up old school. You need a custom painted helmet with a checkered flag to complete the look for sure! I love it!

Agreed.

Also I dig that people have places they can just go shred like this. Nothing like catching sand after a good rain. If you could get a place like this worked in with bumps and a few good turns you would be golden.

That place is honestly really cool in the sense that it can pour 3 inches in a night and not only is that sand perfect, but any bumps or anything get washed away and you have a fresh canvas for a new layout. Its to the point now though that we have a decent loop in there that's getting pretty cut in, I think I hit that spot 3 times last week haha. When the weather breaks up here and its nice out we try and ride as much as possible

Pictures look awesome and I am definitely a fan of the old school silencer. Excited to see this thing come back together with the kit suspension!

Curious where you found/purchased these puppies! Much prefer the old-school stinger style to the new 'safety' end caps...Congrats on a clean YZinger cool

I actually got these from Brett at ICW Radiators he had these two lying around. But they actually pop up on eBay quiet often you just have to take the time to look around for them

Brett is in the know for anything cool that has to do with Yamaha two strokes.

Got the suspension back from getting freshened up and set for my weight and mounted it up for the final time. Also got my rads braces by ICW, a Hinson cover, and mounted my WC skid plate as well. Things are starting to come together pretty well. I should have the A60's laced up to my hubs by Tuesday night and hopefully I'll have a first ride report for Wednesday. Stay tuned!
