Default 2006 Honda CR125R Full Restoration-Factory Build.

     

Soooooo you know how it goes.....
I had to do a top end on my 125 and started pulling things apart... And let's just say it's turned into a bit of a project!!

I've had several cool ideas for my 125 and since I love riding it so much I thought I'd freshen it up and have some fun while getting everything up to scratch.

The cylinder was toast from the last piston but thankfully a shop got it all cleaned up and we're good to go again!

So far Ive ordered plastics, a new exhaust ( the old one was bent so bad that it clung to the frame and took about 2hours of fiddling to get off! ) and I'll be getting graphics but need ideas for a retro Honda wing/HRC incorporated graphics.
The suspension will be service by Performance Moto and I'll do the engine.

Stay tuned for pictures and updates

I already had the bike mostly stripped down but still had a lot to do...







Progress







Everything is looking ok and surprisingly the bike is in 'reasonable' condition.
Unfortunately I noticed a crack in the left side case by the sprocket so frustrating but this is why I wanted to tear the bike down to fix anything that's needed it...
More pictures on the way...

This should be a fun project, much lighter on the wallet than a Dogger Special! I would check out Throttle Jockey for your graphics.

Default The good the bad!

Got the motor out an looks like it's not been opened much before! A lot of the parts look fresh and quite new...
Here are some pictures of the disassembly...

Everything looking nice and shiny in here...



The bad news is that the chain let go and must have cracked the cases!



Hardware in great shape all round!



Here we go.....



Some tools just make life easy



A little cable tie trick





All wrapped in cling wrap to keep the moisture off and extra dirt until I'm ready to clean... I also keep components together this way... Makes it easy to clean and reassemble.



I like to drain as much oil off before I clean so these will drip overnight



I still have to get the bearings out as they are all far gone and then get the case repaired and check that crank too......

Well the frame is completely torn down now. It's ready for Aqua-blast as are many other components.
The cases have been ported/flowed so I'm hoping I can get a weld repair on the case then reuse them.
Getting excited!!

I'm thinking about theming this bike around the Honda wing gold, red and some blue ( just because I can lol )...
I like the HRC graphics and hope I can replicate something similar with my own touch

Well I just placed the last big ticket order for the bike-new engine case, crankshaft, bearing throughout and a host of other parts
The radiators will be here shortly.
This has turned into a full on build.... Don't think I could ride this thing after its done

I'm going to call the anodising shop today and work out some pricing on things. Also taking in a lot of the parts that need blasting....
