They don't make Gnarlys for 125s, you problem mean a Fatty. 125s can make good trail bikes. I trail ride a majority of the time on my 125 and have no problems.

You didn't mention the year. I use my 04 on trails all the time. It works great, but I really need to get the forks revalved. The MX suspension is pretty harsh on trail bumps. I wouldn't bother with a pipe. Flywheel weight would be good, and a set of bark busters.

Definetely Bark busters, my 125 bent more levers than the rest of my bikes combined, strange though My 250 hasnt bent a single one. My rm125's bent like play-doh :thumbsup:

Bigger rear sprocket, flywheel weight, and maybe even a silencer with a sparkarrestor in it to calm down the toggle switch power hit. Id also adjust the power valve to come on later....

i have a 99 with a bunch of stuff done to it and its the bomb diggity. not so hott for the slow rollers who like to roll over everything (due to zero bottom end power) but its great on 'medium' level trails where i can keep it piped in 2nd or 3rd and skip over the top of alot of stuff. 2C
