Restoring 2000 cr 125: pipe and plastics


Recommended Posts

couple of questions here.

first it has a fmf sst pipe thats been through some abuse its dented preety bad. ive seen the trick done with a 4 stroke header where you freeze water inside of it to pop out the dents? i am planning on cleaning it out anyways guessing theres going to be a good amount of used oil in there.

second ive heard i can put 07 plastics on it with slight fabrication. is this true what kind of modification would i have to do to the plastics?

You can freeze the pipe, but you run the risk on blowing out the seems or having to try a couple of times to get the dent out.

I would check this place out: http://www.piperepair.com/index.htm

If you do a search for plastic conversions, you will find a ton of threads with pics and write ups about putting the 02+ plastics on first and second gen CR's.

You can also cut a trap door type hole in the back behind the dent and bang the dent out with a piece of wood then close the hole up and braze it shut. I did this on my pipe and it turned out pretty decent.
