I am wondering how a kx125 will do at at Glaims. I am 14 years old 5 foot 4 inches  and 100 pounds. I will have a paddle tyre in the back too.

Nah, at 100 lbs., you'll be fine out there.  Just don't expect to win a lot of races up Oldsmobile, but just riding out there is a blast.  Sit a bit further back on the seat and keep it in the powerband...have fun!:banana:

Richen your main jet by two sizes because once you get atop the sand and float - you'll be keeping it pinned all day. 32:1 with high quality oil.

This.  That little 125 will be totally worn out after a day or 2.

They're only 100 pounds. It'll be fine assuming it was in good condition before the dune abuse.

My son ripped his Big Wheel CR85 around Dumont when he weighed almost 100 pounds.  I don't think you'll have any issues other than not being as fast as the bigger bikes.

In the sand the throttle might as well be a switch...either full on or full off.

As mentioned above richening up a bit would be a good idea.

Don't forget that two strokes aren't designed to be held at WOT for a long time.

uhh, yes they are

I have a crank in my garage that would suggest otherwise.

Sure, one can jet them rich to run at WOT but under normal riding they would be too rich.

bike will do fine.   no need to change jetting if you are already jetted good.

how many paddles are you running?  with a 125 i recommend a 6 paddle.  air it up too.  like 35 psi.

i also highly recommend running castor oil premix.  it helps when engines are run wide open all day and in the heat.  especially small engines that are screaming more.

(Do not mix castor premix with other types!  drain your old gas out first.)

when you are done, be prepared to clean up a lot of sand.  it gets everywhere!
