I haven't done a strip down but I have done a complete from parts build up which took me lot's to figure and try out to get the best results from a bunch of parts I later found out were 2 complete different bikes.

So shoot :) Also and this tip I am giving alot of folks is to check these exploded views: http://easyparts.nl/choosesubmodel/1/1595/0-4019-1-m412-m1604-m1595/RS-125.html

These helped me put the whole bike together with hardly any effort

For nuts and bolts it's tricky. Most hardware shops sell their bolts/nuts/washers like they are made out of gold. Find a fabricator that uses stainless steel in their construction and ask if you could get a bunch of stuff from them if it isn't too much of a problem or contact someone in your direct surroundings who has access to what you are looking for, this easily brings down the costs you are making immensly..

stuvvie thanks for your help .Im in the middle of doing the swing arm but I don't have a clue were the the lower an upper chain guide plate go from what I can work out only one fits an I dunno were the other bolts on

Have you resprayed your swingarm by any chance?

These are both of them with the flat one mounted on the above of the swing arm and the one with the bump on the down side:


And this is how they are mounted and see corresponding hex socket bolts in the parts list:

Ill looked at the picture but stil dont get how the top plate bolts on as ive already used the holes for the bottom plate witch then leaves no were for it to bolt on sorry to be a pain

One on top of the swing arm and one on the bottom of the swingarm.

Atleast I think that is what you are confused about?


Hell yeah fear my paint skills

Tried to clear it up like this flipping them how they should be mounted (what left and right is for the sliders) altho not 100% sure about the bottom one but pretty (80%) sure it's like this

Otherwise please make some pictures so you can elaborate what exactly the problem is

I get mine from a company in my town. Best bet to do is find out which lengh and thread you need and go on ebay and buy from there.

I have like 5 big trays full of nuts, bolts, washers, then 2 trays of bolts which are oem bolts on rs125 which i have had plated and some new boltes gold pasifeted.
