I just bought a 2006 Honda cr 125 for my 13 year old son. After taking it for a ride, I realized how much I missed those light inexpensive two strokes.

Keep an eye on that top shock bolt. They come loose from time. I check mine every time I wash my bike. Watch the rear wheel bearings. When they go they take the hub with them. They are easy to change and when you do be sure to put some grease in the new ones. They will last much longer if you do. Pull the swingarm pivot bolt and axles. They need to be cleaned and lubed often. If you don't you will wish you had. I always buy a spare air filter and cage. I wash and oil both and put one in a zip-lock bag. I take the spare with me when I am riding in bad dust or I am riding a two day race. It only takes a few seconds to change the filter if you have a cage in it. Your top end will last much longer if you keep a fresh filter in the bike. One more thing, change your oil OFTEN! I change my oil every time I ride my bikes. It only takes 700cc and oil is cheap, clutches are not!

That looks like a good bike. You should have lots of fun with it for years to come.

P.S. I can't say for sure but the silencer that says KTM on it is probably a SXS unit from KTM.

Does it look like this?
