So I currently ride a 13 CRF450 but I'm out in Utah for college now and I didn't bring my bike with me. Looking for a 125 but a cheaper one like under 2k. Located in Orem, Utah and I have my truck so I can drive.

I just bought a 2000 to rebuild. It was in excellent shape to begin with but my goal was to rebuild one from the ground up before it was all said and done. I bought it on craigslist from someone I knew already but I didnt know that they had it. I paid $1200 for it. I hear stories all the time about guys picking up CR's and CRF's from $200-$700 but I think they are full of BS. You cant get them for that, not on the east coast anyhow.

For $2k, you should be able to buy an 03-06 125 easy that is in nice shape. Or if you want to stay 4 stroke, you can get an 05 for $1800-2000. Ill have $3000 maybe even $3500 in my $1200 bike but Im not building it to sell. They are out there, check CL daily.

What should I go with? What's the most reliable? RM, CR, KX, YZ?

All good choices. I'd say RM and YZ are the most popular. The CR is slow and I'd personally go for the KX just because you don't see many around anymore.

There is a nice KTM 150 in Gaylord, Michigan......

They are out there...

My crew all roll CR125's. We are old and fat, easily riding beyond our usefulness. I just got back into it a few months ago. Bla-Bla YZ. You CAN loop a CR125. Easily.

Fuck it. We agreed to always have a spare or two on hand... I scored 2007 "Little Sister" just last Sunday. Princely sum of $2400 from an honest to a fault lad on CL... The great part is a semi-common platform amongst us. My Red Bone® still hold sway. Nasty little fucker. I did a lot of work.Photo

Damn! That is one sweet looking little CR right there!

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Keep looking, and prepare to spend some time finding honest folks...

Going prices in VA are $1600-2400 for 05-07 CR's... The last one I paid $2400 but he had a veritable "Hit List" of receipts and once on it, I knew it was a winner.

I don't know Utah market, but around 2K seems sound anywhere for a runner. $2300 for a YZ of the same era.

Damn, the "My Little Pony" bikes are pricey.

EDIT: You are far better off buying from an experienced rider who uses/maintains the bike rather than a "Barn Find", especially with 125's.

YZs are completely bombproof and have great suspension 06+. I'd start there personally.

Yeah I'm looking around. Thanks for info

This is what I was going to say. I look on here all the time and I know there are quite a few 125s on there right now and they would be close to you.

I would highly suggest a yz. 2004 was a great year.

Totally unrelated, but I just so happen to have one for sale in Missouri

Buy the cleanest summbitch you run across on the craigslist. Spend $2500 and you'll be a happy college kid. Drive up to 8 hour radius for it. She will love you long time.

I just did the opposite of that. I paid 550 for a yz125 with a leaky carb and compression. I have a lot of money to spend on upgrades though.

OP, Good Luck!

Why not go home over " Whatever Break" and get your 450? Is it in another Galaxy?

Based upon my experience as a College "Stoogent", messing around with/on a 125 will interfere with PU**Y and your GPA. J/K!

EDIT: Rethinking the above, you are smart to not risk your 450 at a kegger

Remember parts availability and prices too... Honda and Yamaha are the most affordable.

Throw in the spare parts and I'll give you TWICE what you paid for the bike, right now.

CASH, Bro... think about it.

LOL cool thing is that trick parts for a 01 YZ all over Ebay and dirt cheap. I am getting a Hurricane retro graphics kit from Fusion and I have a complete set of new Blue plastic and stock tank so I dont mess up the hard to find yellow plastic.
