What should I do?

I have a 1994 KX125...and I'm starting to get good at riding (I've only been riding for a little less than a year). I wanted to buy a YZ250F but I think I really like 2 strokes...so should I buy a new YZ125 and get the 144cc kit? or get the 250f? I'm 5'9 140 lbs., I find that the newer 2 strokes have way more power up top...4 strokes are fun but I cant jump on them good....I dont know why...

any further help appreciated


get a 2 smoke, it was arguable with me too, but i went 2 stroke. there more fun to be on, lighter, hard hitting, but fun powerband, its just something about 2 strokes u cant get rid of.

Yeah I think I'll go with the YZ125 and get the 144cc kit...that way I can keep up better with the torque monsters (250f's)

Dont waste the extra money on getting a 125 then putting a big bore kit in. They are expensive and unnecessary. You might as well take the money you have for the 125 and the big bore kit, and get a 250 or 200 instead.


Get a new 125 or be a man and upgrade to a 250 smoker!!!.

Do any of yall who say get a 200 or a 250 understand that some of us want to race the competative class? and not the old drunk 250 class? 250s are a blast to ride, but I want to race a different class, 134 it is.

at the amateur level the 250 class is every bit as competitive as the 125 class.

not around here....

      Hey guys, I just picked up a running 03 yz125 a few weeks ago and upon tearing down the top end, I noticed the cylinder head looks a little beat up. Is it possible to just clean it up or am I better off just buying a new one? Thanks guys.

      Hey guys I just bought a bike last night. So the seller said the bike will turn on but then die. We didn't try it because it was really late at night and it was raining (seat was wet). But he said if you bump start it, it will turn on and ride. So what do you think the problem is? I just want to make sure it runs... I probably won't be able to bump start it till Saturday (rain)... It's a four stroke, and I know absolutely nothing about them. Thanks.

      Hey guys, 
      I've used this forum as a "guest" for awhile now and I thought I'd share my build now that it's all coming together.  The primary purpose of this project is to help me train for roadracing my 2009 R1 at lower speeds as well as giving me a cheap alternative to racing the big bike. 
      Here's what she looked like when I picked it up from a local shop.  Paid $800 cash for the bike as you see it with 17' rims, FMF pipe, EBC 250mm front rotor and clip on handle bars.

      Fits PERFECT!

      Shake down run at the Herrin Compound last summer:

      As she sits today:
