This is the order in which I would rank them. All of them are good and dominated the 125 class. I would look into an 05 or newer though.

1. 2006

2. 2005

3. 2004

4. 2003

5. 2002

6. 2001

7. 2000

8. 1999

9. 1998

i had a 98,99,02, and a 03. the 99 was the best by far. they were all stock too. the 99 was just way faster. it handled great too. that was my favorite 125 ever!

05, 06, and 07 because of the aluminum frame. My 02 is pretty quick tho, no complaints at all.

The 99 still had a 36mm carburetor so i guess it was not as pippy as the 01 and up with 38mm carbs.

The addition of the 38mm Carb produced slightly more overrev and made the engine more responsive to modifications such as porting and such. Otherwise, pretty much useless and not really faster on a stock engine.

I have a 01 and mine can kick the crap out of a 03 crf450f and a kfx400 fourwheeler and mine is stock, but it all depends on your weight and height and if your a good rider and if you know when to shift and know ur powerband i wouldnt listen to any of us i would go with what you like the best. :thumbsup::ride:
