    OK, I have to note that this thread is 100% inspired by Woody, so thanks for the idea.

    (This thread is in progress! Pictures, video, and more content will be added.)

    Here's my story.
    I started riding at 8 and racing at 10. When I was 15 I bought this bike new in 2001. I raced it for about a season and a half before other things took priority over racing. The bike was always garaged and maintained well. Before I knew it I wanted to get back into racing, but almost 10 years had gone by, four strokes took over, and my two stroke 125 was stripped of any technological gains it may have ever had. Being that I still enjoy riding my 125, I decided to revamp it.

    Here are some bike pics. (More will be added)
    These are the oldest picture of it that I have in digital form. Sitting next to my (sold) 954.
    Basically stock.
    Moose torque spacer, Tag T2 bars, Twin Air air filter, PC air filter seal, acerbis flag handguards.
    [​IMG]

    Then I picked up new chain and sprockets (Renthal Gold Chain, Renthal Black rear sprocket, Renthal front sprocket) and a decal kit.

    [​IMG]

    Then it was time for a top end, reeds, pipe, silencer, fork and shock revalve, and some other things. So I had to strip her down.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I sent out the suspension but did the rest of the work myself. I didn't take many picture but here are a few. Although it was still fully functional, the RC valve had a ton of carbon on it. I had never cleaned it before, but now I will regularly. The 10 year old studs were corroded, so I bought all new studs and dowels.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Because of all the carbon, the RC valve shaft didn't want to come out. It took a lot of PB blaster and alittle leverage to work it out.
    [​IMG]

    I took these right after I finished the top end (wiseco pro lite kit), boyesen pro series reeds, rejetted the carb, new pro circuit pipe and silencer, changed the oil, replaced all the studs, installed the forks and shock, and cleaned everything meticulously before assembly.

    [​IMG]

    Here are some action pics.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    some old trophies and my smashed streetbike helmet (which saved my life)
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Next on the list are a gripper seat cover w/step up kit, graphics, new front tire.

    More GoPro Hero HD videos to be added next season.

    Here's the new seat cover (didn't go w/step up kit), lower fork guards, removal of front disc guard, removal of stickers on shrouds, new numbers, and new front tire.

    I don't know this guy standing in the picture (sorry guy)

    Here's a video from spring of 2011.
    http://youtu.be/tmY3TSSilqo

    Clip of me falling, summer 2011.
    http://youtu.be/YSoeZn-jHkg


    After the winter I picked up a newer style front fender (04-07), new radiator shrouds and number plates, graphics, and two sets of new plate backgrounds. I took off the handguards, put in new Hinson clutch plates, and a new OEM clutch cable. I also replaced the rear wheel bearings/retainer, put on a new back tire, tube, and motion pro lite-loc bead lock. In the picture are the old number plates. I haven't put on the new ones with the second set of background yet.

    I did a crappy job using microsoft paint to block out my name. I will take some better pictures outside when the weather cooperates or I actually get to ride.

    Derped the rims to see how much my bike can melt my heart with black rims. Didn't hold up well so I peeled it all off.

    I picked up a used 450 this is how she looked when I brought her home...

    Awesome thread! the picture of the bike stripped i can see where it looks like you polished the frame! I spent hours polishing the frame on my 2000 Cr250, looked awesome but after 2 minutes on the track it was messed up haha.

    I have to admit you have that bike looking pretty and i bet it runs like a champ! Im gonna steal your idea about the helmets, i have a few of the thrashed helmets laying around :anonymous:

    Honda FTW

    yeah, polishing the frame is definitely not worth it. it's good for pictures, but that's it.

    this friday i'm going to the track, so hopefully i can get some good video footage of it screaming. if i get my new helmet in the mail (no tracking # wtf?) before i goto the track it will be on the helmet, if not it will be trackside and shaky. i don't want to waste a mount on the old helmet.

    Yea I used to only polish before a race :rolleyes: Now i dont really give a hoot about how it looks as long as she starts haha.

    What kinda helmet did you get? I just got a set of the new Fox gear and the v3 helmet is crazy light.

    Edit: I always order off of motorsportsoutlet.com they are quick on shipping and have great prices... my Excels were on backorder for like 6 months tho

    Nice bike! was that the first top end you've done on the bike? You're gonna be amazed how much better it runs now.

    steve- the top end was done twice before, but my friend's father did it for me. i was 15 or 16 at the time, this was the first time i've done it myself. but when he did the top end i don't think he decarbonized the rc valve, b/c the carbon on it was brutal

    yeah you gotta clean all that out, and the honda's RC valve is definitely known for not working as well as the other non cable ones when dirty.

    thanks. if money wasn't an option i would have a big four stroke, they are nice!

    i raced from ages 10-17. now i'm 26. i just got back into it last year but i've only been doing practices.. less pressure to do stupid things i guess. if i were to race i'd hop in 250C for a few then prob 250B or +25B. up here in PA we only have the option to ride motocross or hare scrambles, no desert. i have more fun on the mx track than the h.s. track..

    stay safe on it!
