What differes my 01 to an "03+"

Recommended Posts

What are the major (or minor if any) changes from the 2001 to the newer...say 2003/04...and the 2007 RM's..I really can't tell other than I heard something about switching from Kayaba to Showa?

So nothing "major" that would make say an 05 or 06 any better than my 01 that is setup pretty well?

the engine on the 06 is way more 4 stroke like, the showa stuff is supposedly better, but your 01 will be just as fun on the average ride day. if you race you may look into an 06+

Cylinder changed in 02, the 01 has the PV selonoid that only the 00 and 01 poseses. 04 when to showa supspension. 02 and 03 also has different cylinders. 04 the rear brake master cylinder changed along with the front brake cable routing. I think the Stock bars come out with renthals in 05 stuff like that.

Plenty of small changes since '01, but the biggest are Suzuki's changing the cylinder design starting in '03 (YZ clone) and the switch from KYB to Showa in '04.

yes but the 03 rm125 is notiorous for destroying the transmissions
