Hi, recently bought this rarity italian bike and now looking for some advices and parts.

Im not prety sure about the year, cause frame already was in 4 colors but esle looks like 1989.Bike is in rough shape and was siting for a long long time with few liters of water in crankcase. Saw few topic from same bike owners so looking for help about cross-refenrece parts, manual and some engine parts.

Parts my bike is missing - some of cts and pipe, also intake boot is cracked like hell and Im not sure crank cause its a bit rusty (gona take it out tomorow)

P.S As I searched a bit you still can get piston,clutch discs,parts for suspension,plastics and parts for carb but what about bearings,cables etc

Thanks wink

I love the old Cagiva's and wanted their 125 desperately as a kid.

I see parts come up on Vintage Bike Ads fairly frequently. It's a good place to start watching.

Already "hunting" there , as for me the most problem is with pipe and I was thinking maybe old Honda 250 pipe will fit sad

Everything you need is available. There are about 2 contacts you need to get anything. It's worth joining Facebook just for the Cagiva WMX community. You can get all the parts and service manuals/dealer bulletins.

If you have an 89 it will have a rear disc.

Here's my 88 250

For pipes...a Husky shop in California called UP Tite made Cagiva pipes. I've got one on my 250 and they can still be found. Dynoport in New York lists a 1990 Husqvarna pipe that's the same as the Cagiva. There are used SPES pipes from Belgium that come up for sale occasionally.

A guy in Germany is using a DG CR 250 pipe on his Cagiva that just took a few easy mods to work. Scalvini just started making 85-89 Cagiva 125 pipes and the 250 may follow.

So i got a bike Cagiva wmx 250 to 2t.
i would like to know if anyone can tell me what oil i should use in the gearbox.

I would definitely pm hillbilly.

He raced those things for years around that time frame and wouldn't be surprised at all if he had boxes of parts in the barn.

750 ML of oil. Any brand is good.

I have been messaging Hillbilly for years on here asking about Cagiva parts and can’t ever get in touch with him.

since it´s classic i don't know what oil should i use and also nobody can tell me.
of these types of motorcycles here in Portugalthere are not many

Send me a message with your email and I can send you the manual with all the information. There is a big Cagiva group on Facebook that is very helpful also.


2/10/2019 11:43 AM

Does it turn over or is it stuck from the water inside the crank

20/50 castrol gtx motor oil.. or 80/90 gear oil. That's what my buddy said. Oil if you need the motor oil I think and gear oil type. Don't use motor oil in your gear box though just saying


2/15/2019 12:25 AM

Or IDK maybe you can let me ask him


2/16/2019 5:56 AM

i am from Portugal and certain types of oil that do not sell here.
so i'm not sure if any of these have around.

You can use a motorcycle engine oil for wet clutch, its not so critical.
If you use engine oil for cars, the clutch can slip
