I fully expect to get flamed for this but here I go... My 426 is too damn heavy! I never thought I would say it, but it is oh so true. Why would I say this after happily riding my bike for 3 years? I rode a cr125. My wife's bike, actually. It was a tough transition, and a real eye opener. The first thing I noticed was how much I rely on the 426's awesome power. I kept stalling the 125 because I was in 3rd when I should have been in 1st(for that bike.) There is no way to argue it- Big Blue has the juice! About 1 hour into the day, I figured out which gear to use and remembered how to use the clutch. From then on, I was riding just as fast as I can ride my 426. Not only that, but I was able to ride much longer with fewer breaks. Now I have to choose which bike I want to take whenever I ride. It is a tough choice! The Point: Someone needs to figure out how to get the power of a 426 into the weight of a 125. When they get that sorted out, I know what I will be riding.
