Good find. Looks like a really clean bike.

It just needs a complete dissambly, grease, lecture, and some TLC. Rear fender is jacked, TUF Racing still has OEM, so I'm going that route.

Where did you find this, I have been looking for an 89-90 YZ-125 for the past two years without luck? Sweet bike, congrats

Nice find Tuzzo! You plan on racing it? Always thought the '89-'90's were good looking with the longer radiator on the RH side.

A local guy by me wanted me to help him clean the Carb, and I said of he ever wants to sell it let me know, I prepared it for storage because I knew he wouldn't ride it, fogged the cylinder and carb with Stabil engine Fog. He never TOUCHED it. Sat in his garage on a stand under a sheet.

I might race it at our Local Vintage series, not sure yet. It would be fun though.

More coming. If anyone sees anything out of whack let me know. I'm not an expert with this, it's my first shot at bringing back a gem like this. Thanks in advance for any help you guys give.

Holy crap stock bars!

Good bike, first 125 I ever rode. Did not like the forks (found them very harsh for a 14 year old weighing 120 lbs) or the refusal to shift at times (usually 2nd to 3rd @ WOT). I foolishly shortened the stock silencer and it screwed up the powerband. Trying to remember what else.

Crazy to find one so mint after all these years!

I had a '89 125 and loved it. It did have issues shifting 2 to 3rd I believe. Race tech made a trick shifter that really helped. Motor wasn't blazing fast but fun.
