I have no bottom end lag on my 05' cr125. They come way to rich from the factory. Vforce3 reeds were the best mod so far. I went one leaner on the pilot jet, and one clip posistion leaner.

i had a 03 cr125 and i had all the vforces pipes silencer and all that crap. and the only way you are goin to be able to tell a differents is sending ur motor to varneer or mileliuem and get it bored out to a 134 so it is still legal and that is not goin to cost u but around 600 bucks and its goin to be the best mod u have ever done to ur bike

Damn it this was an educational forum so that way peeps could get an honest view of the two bikes in this discussion and some dweed comes in and pops off with the lame a.. comment get a 4 stroke. First off been there done that ! Hate'em! sure threw kewl but not everyone wants one.

If you looked at my photo album on here you'd see that past various bikes I've owned recently. I could of had the lame twin piper CRF if I wanted to buy it but why buy a bike I couldn't be as fast on vs the one I can be. What a dork. In fact I race my 125's in open classes and still beat lamers on bigger bikes who can't ride cause they got no skills hell I could beat them on a 65! I choose to race 125's my 125's a fueled by hatered towards dweed 250F's riders who think they have an automatic advantage cause they got one. in fact the friend of mine who got the '06 CR 125 had an yzf 250/290 before it. So untill ya have something intelligent to say *shut it!*

*sorry rant mod off due to someone idiocy above*

Now to comment bout the guys asking bout the older CR's having experience with them I know for fact the newer style '05-06 smokes them. But if ya ask nicely I can tell ya how to do some simple mod's for more power.

Guys, lets keep this thread clean of attitudes and name calling. There is no need in that stuff here.

I second that notion. This has been a good thread that I've followed for some time, and ... well, you know what.

What older years do u know a lot about cuz i got a 96, id say its fast but with all the new engine developements the 05-06 sounds like its a much faster bike.
From my experience the 03 cr125 seemed slower than they are.

The '00 thru mainly '02 I sure of it will work on the '03 / 04's but I'm not gonna tell ya how to magically port it. But I can help lead ya in the right direction due to spending hours with other owners online finding out little tweaks here n there that help the bike in fact they are more like fixes from the stock setup most of it is very simple so most anyone can do it. So it's not like it's going to make your bike unreliable or some crap. It's just a good setup.

It's still alittle lazy off the bottom (time for a V force V3) and transitions to a nice mid range then it hits good and just pulls strong all the way threw the top end making good power all the way just before it flattens out it gets alittle bit of usuable over rev surge! Put on an FMF fatty and well it was hard to tell if it made any difference over the stocker but honda makes really good pipes stock so no real surprize there.
How about some update? Did you try V force 3? Atermarket silencer? Anything else? btw excellent post

Oh yea that's been a long while ago tried the Vforce V3 and it runs crisper with it definetly an improvement. Had also tried FMF fatty and factory fatty honda makes a good stock pipe I didn't notice anything from the pipe nor adding the a shorty but hey it sure looks good.

Haven't done much more to it other then ride it mostly did try a little easy mod drilled to small holes on the exhaust side of the piston skirt using an OEM piston. Stock it doesn't have any it does look like it ran it alittle cooler there compared to the piston that didn't have it. We'll see after this next top end if it was worth while.

Next mod is well CR 139 maybe a 144!!

Good comparison on the two it is nice to see that the 2 smokes are still being developed on. I am and will always be a 2 stroke guy I just like the sound powerband and look of the pipe and everything. I used to have a 91 cr125 and back in the early 90s honda was the ****. I am glad to see them make a badass 125 again though. What about their 250s? I wonder if they are getting better.

Bought a 2007 CR125, have ridden it few times and it sure is fun after thumpers (last three were CRF450's; 03,04 & 06). Last season with 125 was back in 1982 so I'm kind of re-new to two strokes . Being testing crisper jetting on 07; found that my CR's pilot was rich, leaning needle felt crisper but powerless, main maybe a tad rich, now running 50pilot, stock needle and main. Havent tried any mods yet. Thats why interested what mods actually makes it better Suspension and handling feels really good after CRF's. And did I mention it's really really fun to ride

Wiseco makes a 139cc 57mm kit for the CR that is really light and works the best out of the overbore kits. I've installed 5 so far over the summer and they're holding up well. The porting on the CR125 is really close to a YZ now and it doesn't require case mods.

This was post I copied from eric gorr off another site he posted just yesterday interesting cause I saw the porting/design of the my friends cylinder and I thought the same thing hey it looks like a YZ now.

I love my '06 YZ 144 he did for me, I'm sure now he'll have my friend's cylinder etc soon to make it a 139. After he rides my YZ 144 at washougal tomorrow there won't be anymore hesitation.

I thought it ran best with a leaner pilot and leaner needle clip pos, the bike is run mainly on trick 101 unleaded race gas at like a 50:1 ratio with 927 pistons look good.

May dive into the suspenion afterwards going to try disabling the bladder system in the forks to maybe give it a plusher feel. I spent alot of time learning about those forks cause the setup on my '04 KX 125 was all confused at least honda got it right. I still noticed the little bit of springy/bouncy feel in them on repetative square edge's.

best way to ride the bike mid and top work each gear for max rev's when I ride it like I want to blow it up it works the best use the clutch to shut off the power not the throttle the lil CR just takes the abuse all day. I can get a wicked flow going on it.
