I had some pretty bad injuries back in 2014 that made me sell my 450. This entire time without a bike has been hell so I started looking at bikes this weekend. Anyone own an 01 rm125? Opinion on this old smoker? I just intend to putt around and have fun on this thing. Are these good bikes? Photo

Old smokers are always good bikes. Cheap parts. Easy to work on. 125s are great for fun they just wear you out. Only down side is that i had with my last bike that isnt made anymore was getting parts. They are out there but some things take a while and had to search ebay for some stuff. As for that particular bike ive never owned one. Plenty of yz125s, cr125, rm250s and cr250s.

Consider the fact that Suzuki parts are significantly more expensive than Honda and Yamaha parts, of you’re looking at a project. If cost isn’t a huge deal then by all means go for and enjoy it, just wanted to give you the heads up.

I think the 01 had a known transmission issue. That’s the only thing that comes to mind and I’m sure somebody on here can elaborate. Looks like a nice bike for $1,200 though.
