    Does a cr125 have enough juice?

    Well, for being the very first 2T that I've ever been on, it was just a tiny bit disappointing at first, until I really wound her out on the road and then I realized what you all have been talking about. I thought it did ok at high rpms. It is certainly more nimble than the other bike! Not bad overall once you figure it out. I think I'll be ok with it. Thanks again. Cheers

    Cool. Thanks again for the help guys.

    If a guy has a big bore kit installed, to make it a 144, does that indicate anything good or bad about the bike? Does that mean its possibly been raced? Does it make redoing the top end more expensive or difficult?

    I love the way you explained that. That's all I needed to know. Looks like I'm buying a cr125. Thanks guys!
  5. I sold my 1984 xr350 because it was just too heavy on the trails. Like 300lbs. I'm needing something lighter. Ideally I would like a crf250 but all I can find right now is a 2000 cr125 but will it have power that I'm happy with? I haven't had a chance to ride anybody else's 2-stroke 125 unfortunately. I'm 6', just under 200lbs. Need advice!

    Ok. That's what I'm hoping but I'm so new to all this. Thanks for your input.

    Like how quickly would I know? It works fine now. I've put about 10-15 minutes on so far. What will happen if they don't get oiled or enough oil. Will I burn up my plates?

    So, got another question now. Btw clutch is still working, haven't been out much at all. But, since this is my first time doing all this stuff, I didn't oil my clutch plates before I put them in. They were the old plates, so they've been soaked for years. I just cleaned them up before I reinstalled them. So no surface oil on the plates anywhere. It's a wet clutch. Will the plates oil themselves? Tried to find stuff on this and I couldn't. How big of an issue is this?

    Well, got my new parts. Cleaned everything, put it together, clutch works fine. Didn't do anything different. Have no idea why my clutch wasn't working before. But it is now. Thank you everyone for the help and ideas. Cheers

    Clutch never gave me any trouble at all. But changing from synthetic to standard can't be the cause, could it? Doesn't seem feasible.

    Yes I can feel the actuator pressing against the clutch basket, trying to release pressure. But it won't. Or can't. I have put quite a bit of pressure on it and it doesn't release. The guy before ran synthetic I think. I put in standard dirt bike oil. Can't imagine that would make any difference.

    Took my clutch pack off. Never done that before. Broke it. But, I think I learned something valuable. I heard somewhere that the plates can cut grooves in the outer housing and then catch on them thus not wanting to disengage?? Here's a pic of what I saw. Could that be enough to cause the issue? At this point I need a new pack regardless so I'll know if that's my issue as soon as I get my parts I guess. Tough way to figure it out but whatever I guess....

    That's exactly what I keep telling myself. I'm a pretty particular and organized guy in general. I have to be because of the work I do. I can't see where or what I could be missing. It is going together exactly like I pulled it off. I guess I won't have much of a choice but to dig deeper or bite the bullet now and take it in.

    I've scoured those springs and I can't see anything stuck in there anywhere. I don't think I have a choice except to pull the clutch basket out too?
