Very Nice mate!

Just naturally, it's a two stroke. You may want to throw and engine rebuild in there for good measure. An extra 200. Worse case scenario. Looks nice that though!

Same as that year YZ liam. My brothers annoyed about supermotoing and road legaling a 5 speed box one :(

I think 5 will be enough for me, all my local tracks are tight and short, i rarely hit 4th on my kxf with standard 13-50 gearing

Fuel injected? Still looking for a decent yz liam, want an alloy frame one ideally

I wish you could get EFI two strokes. That would be insane! Well insane is an understatement. Ifhey figured out fuel inject for two strokes, they could come back in a big way!

Wow that's an interesting read. I clever stuff, but you would lose the power curve of a two stroke that much is certain. Instead it will be much more linear like the four stroke counterpart.

Thats a 500 though, surely 125 you need all the peak power you can get because thats where you will br keeping the revvs at?

They got a 5 speed box and non ally?

It's cheap! What's the risk, it goes bang. So it's 100 mitaka piston kit rebuild. Piece of piss.

EFI sorts the mid range out mate. It's at the mid range that two strokes suffer, where fuel is lost straight out the exhaust port. So EFI would really benefit a 125!

Bang that on the DT 170 and that'll be savage aha!

Oh injection is the way forward then! Only problem is its just another thing to go wrong, and from experiance its expensive when it does go wrong, happened to my dads kxf 450

I dunno that guy could be a genuine guy or he's just talking s*** and done that long description just to persuade you its genuine so you buy it

I want an alloy frame yz tbh but they all seem so expensive and not many of them popping up

Cal engine wise what would the newer 2005< engines have over that 2001 one? Considering its had a recent rebuild technically which one is 'newer'?

Oh yeah mate, if I were to get an EFI two stroke, IT WOULD HAVE TO BE FACTORY EFI! I can't stress that enough. You don't want to be fcking around with someones bodges. I was just saying they would run really nicely.

I don't know. Scrim does. I know that the non ally frame YZ's have a 5 speed box in and are really short ratios. My brother never complained about it on the track though I don't think anyway. It was just when he made it road legal did it become apparent.

Rode both ally frame and steel frame yz's yeah the ally frame was lighter easier to throw round in the corners, when it comes to the power it take off and pulls a lot quicker but I'd say that's down to the lighter frame and upgrades to pv etc, riding the steel frame still great fun certainly feel the vibration a lot more but other than that still good fun and still good power

That yz has been on eBay for a while! A lot of the time that's not good! I wouldn't go for it personally.

The CR does seem like the nicest of the 125s. Very sought after compared to everything else. Probably the lightest as well. Power wise I reckon the KTM is on par or better than YZ, and there is a lot of later year ones about.
