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.

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.

Ohboy does it take a lot learning to ride 125 after those fourfiddys , so far ridden it twelve hours (hourmeter) and enjoyed every minute . It sure is mid and up engine, thats ok. For my riding style it however needs some more mid to wake up little earlier in corners. It only needs very little more, maybe a one tooth bigger rear sprocket is enough. Does PC pipe and silencer help in midrange (can get one cheap ), any experiences? HGS exhaust really wakens it up (friend has one), but they are hard to get and not exactly cheap

All ready tried a larger rear sprocket that was okay for the really tight stuff like indoors. My friend who owns this bike who other bike is an '03 service honda CR 500 AF. The lil 125 get's ridden much more his bike will be a 139 in say another month. I let him ride my YZ 144 last weekend at washougal and it was all over. It has that little extra your seeking for a pipe won't do it on the 125 I flat out told him I couldn't tell the difference between the stocker and the regular fmf fatty nor the factory fatty. I highly highly doubt the pro circuit will do jack other then make a good replacement at most. I felt the Vforce V3 more then the pipes!

It will come to life once eric gorr works his magic on it turning it into a 139, he says he's built 5 now using wiseco's new 139 piston and it doesn't require the case mod's for piston clearance. think about it like $500 total for him to do that or like $300 ish for a pipe/silencer you might not feel.

Smile 06 Honda CR 125

Ok great job on the 06 CR 125 . You are right on the money on everything you said the bike is a great 125 and yes it's fast. After buying one several of my friends have found them and ran out and picked them up so we now have 6 CR 125's in our ride group . Get the FMF Fatty and silencer ( Shorty ) for a bit more low end and the V-Force . Get the carb jetted makes a huge difference night and day from stock . If you are going to run race gas pick a fuel and oil and stay with it ... Jet the bike for your fuel . I found that Sunoco 108 mixed with 93 pump Gas works the best. i go 3 gallon of pump to 2 gallons of race gas works great if jetted right just put strait race gas in the 125 and it makes the jetting 10 times worse than stock and you loose power . Anyone that gets a chance to ride the 05 to 07 CR 125 should jump on the chance they are great bikes and anyone that can ride will easily run with any 250 F at the local level .
