Question 1998 rm125 bog issue

     

So I have had my rm125 for about a year now and have always had a issue going up hills like really small hills too, the problem is when I get about halfway up the hill I bog out but if I pop clutch it's starts to go then bogs again

Have you checked your float height?

Check your manual or wait for someone with your same bike (or that manual) to chime in. Meanwhile, you could check your compression, exhaust packing, and plug. Once you get the float and things mentioned right then you can move on to getting. Oh! And check your air filter.

Alrighty! There's also a thread on here about how to build a leak down tester for around $20, in case it is a right side crank seal or some other sort of leak that is coming into effect under full load.
