Kx 125 Build

Recommended Posts

So i have had this 2001 Kx 125 for about a year now and thought i might as well put all these pictures to good use.

Damn, Really looking good now. You need to slow down. You're making me tired. LOL  You've done alot in a short amount of time. My age is showing. Getting tired from watching other people work.

 

You've done alot of work on that. Just don't keep it a beauty queen. Ride it like you stole it and enjoy the hell out of it. Awesome job. Bike completely resurrected for the cost of a completed rebuild of a 4 stroke.

I really like what you've done. A small suggestion...straighten the cooling fins on the rads. With those tiny radiators, you really do need to keep them as efficient as they can be. They make combs for it, but I generally gently push an appropriately sized plastic zip-tie through. If need be, I might have to straighten a fin with needle-nose pliers. Most of the time I can clean up a nasty lookin' radiator in about an hour.
