03 kx 125,Comon Problems?

Just picked up a 03 kx125 very little use,to be used as a second trail\track bike. Any comon problems with this year.

Is the 03-06 the same? or 03-05.

I have a 2003 that I picked up as an ex race bike, I think they are bulletproof. I have been riding mine for 3 years now every weekend with no problems. They are great bikes, just make sure to keep up the normal maintenance and replace piston/rings occasionally if ridden very hard.

Almost the same. 04 and up had different porting piston and exhaust valve. real nice easy to ride bikes. For trails they are great, they make alow of low/midm for a 125. Add pipe, correct jetting, reeds and a FWW and they make darn good trail bikes.

Good luck!

Thanks for the input,The last time i owned a KX125 was a 1980 What a P. O. Stuff.

Bad suspension,ill handling and SLOW. They don't make them like they used to ,thank god. My new one is still apart,(i like to tear down bikes when i get them and do what needs to be done before it breaks 20 miles from the truck.)

Iv'e been riding the big 650 too long,everything is so light and tiny on this bike.Can't wait to get out and hammer it like a bent nail!

Wow, XR650R to a KX125. It's gonna feel like a Razor Scooter through the trees. I had a 03 KX250 that shared the same frame geometry with the 125. Those ergos where too small to me.

      Alright, found three bikes all located where i live in Texas. I know they're all very different, but if you could tell me what you think each bike is worth, and which one would be the best deal. Thanks.
      Notes: Both 2 strokes have new top ends. I think the front brake lever is broken on the kawasaki.

      So I'm at a bit of a cross roads, I currently own a 06 rm250 and I love it. I also have a 02 kx250 which I'm selling with intent to buy a newer two stroke. I can't afford a newer ktm and the older ones aren't that great and kawasaki never impressed me. so I'm stuck between 06 yz250 and 05 cr250. I've heard the yz and rm after 06 are almost the same bike just the Suzuki handles better and the Yamaha has better suspension. So I'm not sure if I wanna buy carbon copy of my bike with slight differences. That's why I'm interested in a cr250 I heard the 02+ models RC valves are shit garbage but was mostly fixed in the 05-07 models. I ride at a track and at some bogs down the road from me. So from people who have owned both, what would you recommend. I know the cr is known for a hard hitting power band which I enjoy since im an aggressive rider. Should i just see which deal comes my way first.
