Hey Guys, We picked up our first two wheeler this week. We've had plenty of three wheelers and quads through the years, but this is our first bike. Its a 1999 YZ125 and we got it for $400. Not a bad deal I thought. It was bought new by a family we know and not much has really been done to it during it's life...including maintenance. The linkage was frozen up and had no travel at all. We ordered the new bearings today and as we got to digging into it we just kept going. The plan is to take it to get powder coated this next week and get all new plastics for it. We removed the rear shock andthe spring seats were set to about halfway down the thread column. Once we loosened them up the spring had very little expansion and was loose on the shock when we got to about 3/4 up the threads. Going to check with the dealer, but I think we need a new spring. Not familiar with this stuff as I am only in the process of restoring one quad and have never worked on a dirtbike before. We also plan on getting a new FMF pipe and silencer for it soon. Engine runs great and has never been into. We're going to check it out though to see if it needs any work later on.
