Default moose torque spacer

My 2002 CR125 doesn't have much low end even with a fmf fatty pipe, exhaust spacers, jetted correctly, and a uni air filter. I was considering buying the moose torque spacer and would like to know if anybody has had any good results with it. Can i expect a difference?

I had nothing to compare my 01 cr125 with...I let a pro ride it the other day(arenacross track)...he was surprised how much low end it had. but...he could out ride me in a pair of flip-flops and blind to boot!...the gearing was the same on his bike, 1 up from stock...my entry speed and exit speed was WAY different and in completely different areas of the power band. so I KNOW I need to go up one more(54)! not even sure I can pull that!??

...look up in the owners manual and have a look at HOW many needles Honda offers for a stock setup! I am jetted NOTHING close to what FMF recommends. in fact boyesen and fmf TOTALLY are on the opposing side of what to start with! using the stock pilot, needle, and main are still going to most likely result in crap transitions between them! mine is not spot on but I am working on it ALL the time! using different needles, pilots, and air screw settings...the possibilities seem endless. jetting for steady state is one thing and my changes would have no effect on them. jetting dynamically is another ball game and my changes produce very different results...good luck bro!...I wish my 125 was 1/2 as easy to tune as my 500!!

PS:the bike has FMF SST, titanium II,Rad valve, and boat load of other non engine performance related stuff on it/in.

A shorty silencer(fatty pipe) and clean airfilter along with proper jetting keeps my 03cr somewhat better then stock in the low mid area...

guy an easy way to get more lowend out of you 125 is to mill 1mm off the base of your cylinder, and then cut the squish at a 10 degree angle allowing for the extra clearance you will need.

I did...what are your thoughts on having two different cc'ed heads for this bike...one for arena and one for mx???...any thought on timing with or w/o a compression changes? I know if I was better and my exit speed was higher (indoor) I would not even be talking about the above...this coming week I am going to try 1 more up in the rear. I think the decreased swing arm length will help in whoops too?? if I can't pull the same gear out of the corner, there is no chance in hell I'm going to pull it at the end of the straight either!

stating the obvious I think the better you are the less low-end you need...my idea of where the bottom end is and a pro's idea,that was riding my bike, are a lot different!

ProDesign makes what they call a "Cool Head", with interchangeable domes. I am not sure whether they make one for the 125 though.
WolfCdi offers a programable ignition that I hear works pretty good.

I ran one on my old '87 RM125. That thing had zero bottom. After putting on a 10mm reed spacer, I noticed the bottom and lower midrange had alot more snap. I did lose a small amount off the top, but that bike would pull as long as you twisted your wrist. Fun bike.
