My new to me. 01 CR125

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. New guy here. I just picked up my first (kinda long story ill get to that in a min) bike. Let me know what you guys think. 01 CR125 original plastics decals and topend. Pro Circuit header and exhaust (race pipe and spark arrester included), Excel rims, Renthal chain and Renthal handle bars. MotoGP 50 tooth sprocket.

So far its great compression tested out to 155 psi. starts 1st for 2nd kick. Just got it from a friend who picked it up last weekend for a buddy bike took it out and changed the tires, oil and air filter. Rejetted it and got it pretty close to dead on. Decided he would want to make it a MX bike if he kept it so he sold it to me.

Only problem that i have seen is the back rotor is slightly warped not bad tho less the 2-3 degrees from what i can see. And there is a slow(extremely slow) leak from the peatcock. Pretty sure its just the o ring.

I already found a OEM rotor on Ebay but not super enthused about getting used rotor from ebay so looking for a new on and failing. I could use some help with finding parts and also which years and models are interchangeable.

I cant wait to get it out to the desert.Having said that I havent ridden since I was 13(12 years ago) and then my bike wasnt mine it was my cousins. I got a 1985 yz250 as part of a trade for my jeep. Took the cash and bought her a funny/weird story check it out hears the thread http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1017348&page=2 . I decided it wasnt the best idea to just jump on a 250 when the last bike i rode was a CR85 12 years ago. So here I am 01 CR125 and ready to ride again. I have to relearn to ride and basic maintenance.All suggestions welcome.

Thanks guys

Welcome. Congrats on getting your bike. It looks very clean. I have the 08 Husky CR125 now 144 and they are awesome bikes. Check out the Cafe Husky site there are lots of guys that can help you over there. I get all my parts from Halls; they are great to deal with and have many parts in stock. Take your time on the bike and it will all come back to ya. Change the oil about every 10 hrs and keep the air filter clean and oiled and you will get lots of use from the bike. Husky's are very tough bikes and the 125's are tons of fun; enjoy!

Very nice clean bike. That front fender looks like it's off a Suzuki RM. The original from that year was not so angular.
