CR125 fouling plugs

Recommended Posts

My 04 125 Which I have had no trouble with till now is fouling plugs. Its running a standard jet. 40-1 yamalube 2r. Had a new plug and fouled it after 40mins of trail riding. It had sat for 4 months (with fuel in carb):wacko: I drained carb, new fuel off I went. Done 22 hours on piston. Its not been nana riden either. Carb overhaul?

My 04 125 did the exact same thing. I could put in a new plug and after 30-45 min of riding it would foul. Turned out to be worn rings/piston. Oil would get past the rings and just cover that plug and it couldn't burn fast enough. Check your piston.

I dont know why you would run 40:1 in a 125, i suggest run 32:1.

I've got the exact same bike as you. Mines started that brand new off the showroom floor. I do a lot of trail riding and went through around 4 plugs every time I rode. Called the local honda shop, shop tech told me to adjust the carb needle down one notch, and put a one size hotter plug in it and I've never had a problem since. And I also run my bike 32:1.

hi mate

i bought a 07 cr125 about 8 months ago and right off the bat i was fouling plugs like crazy !

After alot of research i fount out that it wasnt the size of the just but the tape of the throttle needle.

I bought a JD jetting kit, installed it and havent had a problem since!

follow this guys instructions, go to about the 3 minute mark and watch from there, see if ur problem is the same as this guys was having.
