1998 yz125?

Recommended Posts

Hey I'm looking to get a yz125. There is a 1998 that has a few aftermarket parts (pipe, silencer, grapics, spoke skins, off the top of my head) the guy wants $1300 does this sound like a good deal?

Its a pretty old bike but it its been taken care its not a bad price for my area. Make an offer of like 900 maybe he will take 1000.

Have a '98 thats been modded extensively,

144 overbore, suspension, pipe, PSI carb,

etc, etc, and its good everywhere. Ride it at the the track , switch to a 12t front sprkt for the bush,

even have studded tires for the winter.

... might not be new, or have an aluminum

frame, but great all around bike, and

tons of new and used parts available

Nice!

Oh I should've mentioned that what I mainly ride is single tracks/ trails. With a few decent sized jumps. Trails aren't that technical, just a few steep short hills.

Have even had it at Glamis a couple times,

with a paddle tire. Might as well have wired

the throttle wide open there, :)

Only place its ever felt underpowered,

...but it did climb the sand mountains

if you dont race it will work fine. they had issues with falling out of gear, and cracked cylinders. the front forks can go bad in a hurry if your big jumps are too big for them.

Oh, okay.

Well I didn't end up getting the yz, I got a kx125 cause it was only 15 minutes away rather than the yz being 2 hours. No problems so far
