    i bought a frame cradle once for my ttr 125....that thing was twisted more than a spring!....the front bolts were good..but the back bolt and the holes didnt even line up! what a bummer....i called bbr and they said they would check it out when i sent it to them....put it on my door step to send off...and it was stolen!

    hey that reminds me.....since the small 125 has the small rear tire...with a 49 tooth...and the large 125 has the big wheel with a 55 tooth....do they sorta go the same top speed? that bugs meh

    when we got our ttr we checked it out with a gps and it winded out top end at 54...then a cpl years later lol we changed the front sprocket from 13 to 14 tooth...and the rear sprocket...49 to 47 and we checked it again...said 58...keeps up exact with a CRF150F mebbe next time i think we will go about 45 on the rear sprocket...does ne body know if the front sprocket will take a 15 tooth? without tearing or having to take off ne parts...like the case-saver?

    flywheel question

    is the only down-side to the lightened flywheel the tendency to stall out at low idles? or at putting around in a high gear?

    Spray Paint the Plastics

    its prolly been a cpl weeks since we painted ours with regular black paint....front and back fenders are still lookin good..but on the gas tank...where my knees rub..it gets a lil peeled..unless u put a sticker over the open spot...gas does bad also...found that out today!

    Cam Shaft Trouble!

    :thumbsup:that was it....when we took it off the first time i remember it popped off the shaft..all we did was loosen it up and it poped on and then we retightened it...gives the bike a noticable power increase..another question though...would it be a good idea to turn the fuel/air mixture up a lil bit?

    high octane gas?

    i wonder if u clean it with desiel and leave a lil in the filter if it will make blue smoke...thats cool!

    what do you use to clean your air filter

    if u use the Gojo and water to clean ur air fliter...do u have to let it set and dry for a lil while? or just ring it out and and put it in?

    Cam Shaft Trouble!

    could it also be that the chain is on the bottom sprocket and everything...excepts its like double lapped on one tooth..or folded up so that it makes it a lil shorter?

    Hard start when cold

    i have a easy procedure for startin these *cold-blooded beasts*...i have a 150 by the way...and all i do when i pull it out to go ridin...flip the choke switch up all the way...give it a lil gas...about two kicks later it starts...take off and move the choke back down to normal...and it never dies...works great for me!
