modify drz 125L

Recommended Posts

I am interested in modifying a '05 DRZ 125L for motocross. Need to know where to locate jet kit, suspension setup and any other equipment needed. I would also like to hear from someone who has modified a 125L and what they used.

Scratchy

If you want a rear shock with adjustable dampening just go with a shock for a newer CR85/80. It will not raise the seat height. Also depending on your weight you may need to buy a stiffer spring. In the front you could use KX100 forks. And just get stiffer fork springs. You will need to get a longer neck bolt to fit your drz. You may also want to go down a few teeth in the rear sprocket. Or go up one in the front. Thats what I did and it still has good tourque. And if you ride at sea level you may want to go with a 107.5 main jet and a 20 pilot jet.

The steering stem and bearings from an RM 85 are the same. So, if you get a set of RM 85 forks and triples from ebay or whatever all you need is a longer axle and an RM 85 rotor. To some, this might sound like a lot, but it was worth it because my stock rotor bolted right up to the forks and ALL parts are stock Suzuki. Don't need to fabricate this...shim that.... Also, the reason I said all that was because the Honda steering stem and bearings are proprietary and won't fit anthing else unless you had custom triples made. Be careful with the Honda stuff.

I bought an aftermarket rear shock from Works Performance. Cost me $500 but it's been worth every penny. And, because I weigh 250lbs I needed it!

What year/s RM85 will fit?

Do you Know if older RM80 stuff will fit the DRZ125, like 1996 forks and shock?

Hi Steve,

The RM-85 went to USD Forks in 1999 I think? Anyway, I wanted USD (up-side down) bought some from a 2002.

My best guess is that the steering stem and bearings are the same. There were so many parts that crossed over to my DRZ that I figured they just used mostly the same parts. That is the first thing I checked when I began this process. If it's all the same, rock on!

I have all the parts listed in my signature; The kx100 inverted forks bolted right up. I did have front axle issues due to the fast that I have the smaller 125.

BTW mtotdrz, I am almost done welding my lower frame onto my 125. If that frame of yours ain't too bad, I could fix it for you!

I will be posting pictures on my website of my frame when it is done. I just have to prep and paint now.

Keep you all updated!
