Getting another 125

Recommended Posts

I currently have a 2002 yz125, hopefully not for long. My friend is coming to look at it tomorrow and if he likes it we have agreed on 1600 for the price. If I sell it I am definitely getting another 125. Here are my favorite choices so far (by the way the 04 rm125 and 04 cr125 are my favorite)...so here ya go:

What do you think? I have already talked to the guy with the rm, it looks really clean to be an 04. I was looking for something newer but both 04's are more in my price range and both in great shape. Give me your opinions

I prefer the RM over the CR. Those year CRs motors seemed really weak unless you sink some money into them immediately for things like a port and polish. The RM has a strong motor and just about the best suspension avail.

Man jump on the Suzuki in Atlanta; first one listed! I actually like it better than the Honda a little. IMO both great bikes. Good luck with your sale.

Thanks guys. I was leaning more towards the rm too. I found it first and I've already talked to the guy about it. So far I'm the only one that's contacted him about it so wish me luck!

The Rm would be the only one I would consider. Why would you get rid of the Yz for any of those listed?? The RM would be the only upgrade and only slightly over the YZ just because it is a bit newer.

I'm just looking for something different. The yz was my first big bike and I want to try out something else. I've ridden 250f's, 250 2t's, and 450's but considering I'm 5' 11" and only 120 pounds, I like the 125 the best. It's the easiest for me to ride and the most fun for me, but I want to try out a different 125.

I hear ya. My 08 CR144 Husky is my favorite bike and I'm an old fart at 52 now. Good luck tomorrow.

Just picked an 05 Rm125 up this way for $1000 this past weekend. If you look there are deals to be had on 125s, those are all nice but way over priced. Saw a 2006 YZ125 for $1200 the other day on craigslist and there is a late model CR125 for sale a couple hours north of me for around $2000. All the brands put out good 125s and you can't really go wrong with any of the later models.

Ditto on overpriced, at least for my area. I just picked up an 03 CR125 with original tires for $1100. The bike was a little beat up but still basically new.

If it was closer to me I would jump all over that RM. Offer him $1600 and go from there.

I have no clue where you guys are from but that's cheap around here. I saw a few 97-99's the other day for almost 2K! Someone's gonna get ripped off haha. Oh well it turns out the guy didn't even come look at my bike because he bought a 00 yz125 for $600 less. Haha too bad it's a piece and he's already having it worked on for the second time and hasn't had if for a week yet.
