That looks good to me. I just sold a 134 with new bearings everywhere and powder coated frame for twice that price. Mine was an 02 with SSS suspension though.

I would buy that without hesitation. The first thing I do to old bikes when I buy them is take them down to the frame and replace all the bearings so if he’s actually done that, it’s an even better deal.

Tarz! Had fun with you at the SX, hope I wasn't too out of hand for ya. Anyhow, if you're in Mankato there is a cycle club who is hosting a practice and race this Saturday and Sunday. Check out Motokazie.com for a little more info.

Looks to be decently cared for, I could have $900 worth of fun on it.

I bought the 125 it is very nice
The guy still has the yz250
I couldn't afford to buy both of I would have
The guy was very meticulous
I believe everything was done that he says !
If anybody in Minnesota or close wants a really nice older YZ250 here it is

For some reason it's not letting me share pictures right now , so I will share some of the 1999 YZ125 when I can
But it's super nice actually a 134cc
It has enzo suspension
Pro circuit pipe and silencer
Came with an extra rear tire brand new
Never mounted kenda millville
Super clean,
And the guy most definitely has more money
Into the YZ250 then he is trying to sell it for!
The 125 he says he bought for his son
And he rode it for 5 minutes
In a field
And crashed and broke his arm severely
Requiring surgery and never rose it again
And says it's been sitting in the garage for 2 yrs untouched

I'm planning to change the oil
And of course do the air filter
I bought a new spark plug
And some yamalube and fresh gas
Anything else I should do ?
Before riding ?

Take a wrench and check over as many bolts as possible, check spokes, fluids, look for anything missing, check cotter pins are in pegs and brake pedal just as much as you csn check over.

Thanks YZ133 will do
Anybody have experience with a 134cc ?
I'm wondering what the difference
Is when riding
Is it a noticeable power increase ?

Its definitly noticeable. 10ccs on a 500 not so much. But 10ccs on a 125 thats a decent change. If its ported also it should really rip. Either way its a steal for the price you got it for.

That 93 250 looks really good for the price....

Awesome!! The really cool thing is you can pick up trick parts off ebay for cheap,I got all the carbon fiber from one guy for $50 and I got a set of 2004 YZ250f forks with ENZO subtanks for $80 several new sets of both yellow and blue plastic for $50 each set and a new upper and lower applied racing clamp set for $75 . I also updated rear bake master cylinder and lots of other things for dirt cheap. I bought a new Clark yellow tank and BUDs pipe and carbon fiber silencer but most everthing else was NOS off ebay our used .

I just got done changing oil etc and took it up and down the street a couple times
And wow I dont remember 125's being this fast
Holyshit it Rips and pulls very hard
It a 134 but damn
Only got to go up and down a couple times before I broke the throttle cable and ended my tryout
Probably brittle I I'm guessing
Anyway seems to Run very well
I ran yamalube 32 to 1
Seems like it maybe a little Rich
But it was only a few minutes i got to ride it.

I dont remember 125's hitting so hard
Maybe I'm just getting old
I'm thinking I need a 250f
They hit less hard right ?
I've never ridden 1
Or any 4 stroke
