help! lt125 83'


Ok so I have this little 125 that is giving me trouble and I am not quite sure what it is. All regular maintainance has been done but the chain and sprockets.... So it will go along fine and then It looses the drive power (but the engine is still going the same) and then will jerk. It does not feel like the sprockets or chain... I am wondering if anyone has had similar issues.:thumbsup:

I had an LT230 that the stator bolts became loose and it started to miss and spit at higher engine rpm's. Might start there and make sure your timing is correct.

I do not think it is missing because it does not sound like that, I work with cars and know that sound I am thinking it has something to do with the clutch or tranny....

      Was wondering if a newer model exhaust can fit on my 05 RMZ-250. My stock exhaust is rusted out and I prefer the look of the new ones and have seen great reviews on some, as I also want more weight savings. I have been unable to find out if a newer model can fit on my bike, was wondering if anyone could help me out.
