The CR and YZ are both very capable MX bikes. There are a ton of things you should be looking for...rotor wear, engine cover wear, peg wear, frame wear, oil/coolant leaks, wiggle the wheels and swing arm back and forth to check for slack. Dont forget engine performance/wear, which can be challenging to guage.

Power is everything for 125's. Get 2004 KTM's or newer. They have lots of power in stock configuration. Stay away from Honda CR125R. Great build and everything but geez....the power is in such a narrow band.
