hi guys, im about to sell my Rs 50 but iv long been thinking about what 125 to get
iv seen a few aprilia AF1 125s going pretty cheap in need of paint jobs but not much ect (OLD models ie, 1988, 1997)
and some Rs 125s going fairly cheap (1999 2000)
i just wondering what is the reliability of the two? a mate of mine had a Rs125 in really nice condition (2000 model) but ran it low on oil and trashed top end - the AF1 i have very little knowledge about
i was thinking about getting a 4 stroke just because they are cheap and reliable BUT the power of the 2 stroke is tempting me too much + im on a very low budget hence the second hand purchase, i dont have a problem with buying a old bike like the AF1 but i dont wanna have to stick a top end on it all the time because i wanna scream it a bit
so how long do top ends generally last if the owner didnt rap the revs off the clock all the time?
how reliable are the AF1 AND RS as im going to use it regulary?
im going to pick up a compression tester in a couple of hours and if i decide to veiw a two stroke i will ask to just screw in the tester so i know im not getting one with half a piston ring haha
thanks in advance
