Thank you for you input omalley....I might look for a used '04 125 on ebay since you had a good experience with one.

Do you have the swing arm for it? If so, any pictures? Especially want to see the LH pivot area where the chain slider goes. Let me know.

Hey all! I picked up a used '03 CR250 to play around with, and when I was greasing the linkage and swing arm bearings, I discovered the LH chain side of the pivot was all chewed up on the bottom side, and the bearing is exposed. The guy I bought if from ... more »

I too had an awesome time....so hope they continue to hold this event every year! The track, weather, and moto camaraderie was the best! If you didn't attend....shame on you! My 13 yr old took some videos during the weekend, and he then put this together

Just mounted a fresh new Bridgestone M204 on her last night.....she's ready to roost up some of that pristine Redbud dirt! Hope you boys are bringing your tear offs with you!

I hope you all realize that these teams do not make any profit, and this whole "show" is about marketing and promotion. Where would the profit come from?? The huge purse payouts from race wins?? LOL! These teams need a lump sum of money at the beginning ... more »

I looked back in my ebay history and my front brake is a 2005 CRF 250 master cylinder and a 97-07 cr 125, 250, 500 hose. It all fit up ok and I did rebuild both the caliper and cylinder and vacuum bled it with Motul 600. Seemed almost as strong as a modern taking into consideration the small rotor... The DP pads I put in seem grabby when hot so I am going to get some organic pads

Great job! It's a beauty! You planning on riding it?

I have SM Pro Platinum rims on my '86 scooter.

The only thing I see that is suspect, is the surface on the cylinder head. It is it grooved and uneven as it looks in the picture? It should be perfectly smooth and flat (see pic below) If your head gasket was not sealing properly, you could have compression

Thank you Sofiedog! Your '83 is a stunner and looks showroom new! So cool to hear you just got started at 58 years young! What is the story/history of your ride?

Added reply in a thread vintage rolling art?? 4/18/2017 1:41 PM

I too am all about riding them. Sold my 250F three years ago, and will never go back. Too much fun tinkering and reliving the "glory days" on these old dogs! LOL!

Added reply in a thread 86 125 Water Usage? 4/18/2017 1:30 PM

The cooling system is a closed loop, so the coolant is going somewhere. I would pull the head off and see if there is any signs of an issue with the head gasket, and make sure the head itself and top of the cylinder are completely flat with a straight ... more »

Since you just bought this bike, first thing I would do is pull off of the water pump cover and inspect it, as it looks like it has the original water pump cover on it. All of the early CR water pumpers ('81-'88) had water pump/clutch covers that were
