2001 CR125 What do I need to know

Recommended Posts

Gday Guys n Gals,

 

Just bought my son a 2001 CR125, fresh top and bottom end rebuild, looks in great condition.    It has just had $2200 spent on it, cables, stator, tyres, brakes, plastics, graphic, FMF pipe and silencer, carb rebuild, the list goes on.

 

Is there anything I need to know about or should check on the bike.  The stuff you only find out about after something breaks.

 

Appreciate any advice that will keep my son riding.

Put some anti-seize on the chain tension adjuster bolts. Also, check your steering head, linkage and swing arm bearings.

Yes, service adjusters, I just dealt with a stripped adjuster bolt and swingarm, balls!! Bike sounds mint though, should just need routine stuff

get a 05+ air boot

What difference does the later air inlet make?  Do I need the later models reed block as well or just the boot?

He's describing the part that goes between the air box and the carb so no, you don't need the reed block to replace that.  The newer model air boot allows more air flow, the 00-04 125's seem to like more air.  Another mod you would probably like is a 38mm carb, I put a 38mm PWK carb on my 94 from the 00 CR250 and it loves it, revs like crazy, and it will clean up the finicky jetting the Mikuni carb has on that particular model.

Cheers Mate, a bit more bottom end has gotta be a good thing with the riding we do
