like i said i have a 125 and over the years i have had a few but there all the same their mainly designed for hi rpm riding or raceing and there not verry good for trail riding cus the foul plug problem i havent rode any 4 stroke dirt bikes yet to acutly say any thing on them cus all i have really ridden was a xr 100 i did some work on and it had good bottom end for a 98cc motor but figure in the factor of getting a xr 250 or ttr if u really like trail riding and u can jump it 2 stroke is all top end very little bottomend and i found out the hard way and lost it on a hill and me being my size i rooled a few times and had to get some parts but i have had my share of recks so i got a rm 85 and its got a big bore kit and alot of after market goodies its like 135 cc i feel good on it cus i can tuch ground and it has more balls than i need but it comes in handy for climbing and flat out gettin it

no 125 is more of a mid range bike depending on ur pipe and or porting and gearing has alot to do with it to. hill climbing in my opionion is better on a 2-stroke cuz they dont have the touqh to flip ya backwards as long as u lean forward and keep it in the power band u shouldnt have any problems. now a 4-stroke is alot easier to ride but the bigger u go the more torque ure gonna have which u have to control more with the gas and a 2-stroke u just let it rip and lean forward but thats just my .02 of if a 125 is to big id look for a big wheel 80 they are fun

If you buy good plugs and run a good synthetic oil like AMSOIL, you wont have a plug fouling problem. AMSOIL mixes 50-1 for any 2-stroke. Very Happy

on a stroke around here 16oz of oil to 5gal of gas on a good tuned 2-stroke is all u need i ran my 250r atv for 2 years on the same plug never fouled it out. iv riden in everything from heating my clutch up in first gear to where it wont dissangage to balls to the wall. as long as its tuned correct u wont have a problem and runing more than thnk it comes out to 32:1 is a was of money on ur part

Bigred is right, you can ride a properly tuned 2 stroke at 18:1 in the woods and not foul a plug. Plug fouling is caused by improper tune or mechanical issues.

well from what i hear eric gore is recomending for you bike joe so u dont foul plugs to add 1/4 cup log cabin maple syrup 3 cups sugar 1/2 cup radiator fluid and 1 packet of pop rocks for that extra boost and a pinch of cyanne pepper at 14 to 1 lol!

Yes I did pick up a little red pinger. I rode it just the other day and wow did it bring me back to life again. I felt like a little kid in a candy store. I will enjoy this summer for sure

Not much out there as fun as listening to a small bore two stroke turning 12k rpm......

I always really enjoyed the hit of a 125. It's hard enough to be fun but not so nasty it gets tiring quickly. And they're just so damned easy to work on.

I'm not sure if only a 1/4 cup of syrup will be enough to fight off the detonation with 13.5:1 compression? Maybe a half cup, plus it'll smell like Bob Evans for all you 2 stroke guys trying to catch me geek . This forum has a terrible emotiocon selection.
