They're a bit plastic fantastic close up, and obviously a 14.6BHP 4 stroke is not going to be a flyer, all the restricted bikes ride like a stangled weasel. It may well be the best learner legal 4 stroke though. Up close, it's not as foxy as an RS125, there's one of those parked outside the window here.

To be honest, if I had the choice of a 4T 125, it would have been that, I kind of raced one, it accelerated faster than my cbr but he didn't have the same size balls as me ;)

They do about 84 top speed tucked in, as for sound, not good with the standard can, with a performance exhaust they sound okay, have a look on you tube.

that one has an yoshi can on, i dont like the standard painted ones but i like that

What do they sound like? Check on Google. Sound ok with the standard pipe on, in my opinion. My friend has one.

MT- a 2 stroke with that pipe? :p:

They're pretty slow but top speed is ideal.

EDIT: They're silly money though for what you get. Think of a big bike you could get for over 3,000!

I'd also never buy off that person on eBay. Ok there a lot of CAT D bikes out there, but how many R125's have had someone take a screwdriver to the clocks? If you have been looking at this seller for months like I have you'd see that the high majority of the damage is the same.

Something definitely isn't right.

With that kind of dosh, you are better off with the Aprilia. Handles so much better, derestricts to 30 odd BHP, you could get an 08 or 09 plate one for 3k no problem. 2.5k gets you a very smart low mileage one. That ebay seller had an 08 l;ast week, 2.2 on a buy it now, the fuel cap was knackered.

Nice, only seen that once. Not the best color scheme in my opinion.

Oh you're going new shape, nice. Look out for the restrictions in those.

So what's the plan for you then? When are you 17?

Sell the 50, get a 125? For how long? Then car? Bike? Both!?

There's a way round the restriction. Not as complex as it seems, I have a cunning plan, as they say.

Old Geezer
11-08-2009, 11:50 AM
My cunning plan is a quick mod to the snorkel, 1 side is blanked off, a programmable aftermarket CDI/rave controller, a rave solenoid and valve, and a carbon can off my RS250. Plus the re-jet of course.

The carbon cans are what it came with. I put a set of Tyga pipes on, made a huge difference. They are 10Kg lighter, and add a lot of mid range, maybe 15% at 6-8k, and about 5 brake on the top end, and about 200 decibels more noise.... but I have a few grey hairs, don't get much grief for it.

I think the jetting was well off for the std ones, and came good with the tygas. Nowadays, if I'm a good boy, I don't take it into the powerband if drving into London, it'll do 90 in 6th without, and pulls quite well below 8k. However, the best intentions so often fly out of the window....

Being a grown up helps in the thrashing stakes, been there, done that, I choose my moments with care. I have no idea what the top speed is, faster than I am prepared to go on a public road, can tell you that much!

I'm just careful about where I shit on the tarmac. I get to ride the A24 and the zig zag when nobody else is on it, so I can be Captain Sensible on bank holiday mondays when there are about 30 cop cars at Rykas. If I get seen going a bit quick when the roads are quiet, they are much more likely to turn a blind eye.
