YZ 125 Rebuild Time Lapse (1)
My bike broke down yesterday while drag racing people on the highway, and i
took apart the top end and subframe to see what was wrong with it. The
whole process took me 40 minutes, the video is at 5x speed.
1983 Yamaha YZ125 Brought Back From The Dead!!
Update 5/20/14: I really miss this bike. It was an awesome runner and never
gave me a single problem. Perfect trail/play bike. Ran perfect just how i
would believe a new yz 125 would back in 1983. I really regret selling it
now. and this is more than 2 years later guys.
Update 2/9/12: Just sold the bike for $550. Really need cash. As much as i
hated to sell it i feel i got great use out of it. It was a beastly little
old machine. In the end the bike was a little underpowered for me, but
never failed me and was a great machine. I would definatly recommend this
bike to anyone!!
Update 6/12/11: Ive finally taken the bike out twice and it runs
fantastic!!!! Needs fork seals but other than that its great. I love riding
this thing. Feels good to get on a bike again. Enough power for the type of
riding i do. If anyone knows where i can find a 6 cup paddle for an 18''
rim let me know. Im going to oceano dunes and i want to try it out there.
No hard riding as a 125 is not very good for sand. just to play around on.
This is my 1983 Yamaha YZ125. The bike has not been in service since 1989
or 1990 i believe. I got it for free from a friend. His grandpa bought it
new in 1983 so its been in his family since new. When i got it home i
cleaned out the carb, put fresh gas/oil, a new ngk plug, refilled the
radiators, and refilled the trans with gear oil. started in 4 kicks. Not
bad!! In this video I had not started the bike in a little over a month or
so. I didnt have the choke on either and it was dead cold!! I just need a
new chain, brake lever and an air filter and I'll be able to test her out.
Another old bike saved from the junk yard!!!
