My bike uses the same engine, I've had a true 75mph and it's dead standard, I've only changed the gearing.
Brilliant little lump, over 100mpg easily and still pretty entertaining!

Hmm, would you say the DT would get there quicker than the 4 stroke?

Haha, I shouldn't be needing to touch the engine for the rest of my ownership. Internally at least, the outside I clean and maintain the chain etc.

I was considering selling or swapping for a 4T as they're more reliable, but I'll be on a big bike next year so absolutely no point for me to change insurance over etc for the sake of 6 months or so.

Personally I would never get a 125 4T. Reliability and two stroke doesn't bother me. It's a couple hours work piston and rings. At least when the engine does give up it's peanuts to rebuild

True, but my DT was ragged before and constantly stuff going wrong. Spends more time in the shed than it does on the road. :(

Even though my bike has been nicked, it's been very good to me, expensive, but good.

Ha, I think most bikes are expensive if you like them a lot. Most bikers probably love their bikes more than their missus, just won't admit it.

Like 600 just for the silencer on some bikes. Akrapovic stubby that was in my local bike shop. Pretty much the price of an old used car lol

I got very tired of the bike throwing b**ch fits, especially when it meant having to get the train to college/work...
For what I use a bike for (commuting/leisure/greenlaning) I would go 4t over 2t any day of the week

I'm tired of my DT playing up as well tbf. Got a leak drip drops in the shed, so got to strip the L/H stuff off and see where it's leaking from. :/
