its not really hp or torque, its mostly the rider but if you want to match the hp and torque, get the eric gorr 144 kit, id say the 125 make between 30-34 hp depending what year it is

More important than the torque - make sure you install the purple powerband and you'll most likely win all your races

Its almost irrelevant. A 125 doesn't need any magic number of torque and horsepower to win any race. Its all about the rider. a 125 will easily beat a 250f if the rider is better, even if the 250f has 10 more horsepower and 10 more pounds of torque on it.

A stock YZ125 is enough to run down and pass a field of 450F.

It's all about the rider and how he adapts to the bike and the track.

Great article MikeyLikesIt.

IMO best arcticle ever. Pro rider on 125F vs test rider on 450F.

Crazy timing, a buddy and I were talking about this one maybe 3 days ago! I thought I still had the original magazine, but couldn't find it.
