  1. LOL, not many people know. A uk moped, ie 50cc bike is not legally required to have main beam. My daughters Aprilia did not have main beam, i converted it because the headlight was shite using kx 125 parts. So it may well not have main beam.

  3. my last jaunt found me leaving the A/B roads and exploring some country lanes. one of the great things about biking in the UK, is all the lovely places waiting to be discovered once you leave the beaten track. passed through a scenic little village called Wherwell at one point. my pics dont do it justice-

  4. If you have not come across this Legendary Bike builder it's well worth a couple of hours on his channel. I'll start it off with a look at the six cylinder Kawasaki https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uW2YFNDjN_o&t=434s Perhaps Admin can embed the video for me

  11. you can thank bike magazine journalists for its reputation. they can be a bit prattish. much like Top gear, if its not a super fast track machine, its a boring old farts ride enjoy your ride and take pleasure in knowing you bagged a hidden gem.

  12. Hi first post. Been giving this some thought and I think yes and it will give 180cc. The con rods are 1cm different in length, the 125 is 1cm longer. But the cranks have different placings with the 250cc about 1cm further out giving a longer stroke. Essentially by the looks of it you would get proper compression of fuel when fitting a 250cc head to a 125cc but with a shorter stroke so reducing the cc you get. Based on the kits that used to be sold the piston shape and 49mm bore looks identical to the 250cc cylinder and piston and those kits where 180cc. 180cc because you have a shorter stroke with the 125 crank set up. Here is a 250cc cylinder kit from China that looks identical to the old 180cc big bore kits you used to be able to buy. So much cheaper than the old kits, but quality unknown. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32762639325.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.525713c42Rj4gz&algo_pvid=bf04f88d-4f15-4ffc-a08a-daafbdbcdc63&algo_exp_id=bf04f88d-4f15-4ffc-a08a-daafbdbcdc63-11 You would of course have to rejet the carb. I think the 125cc has 12.5 pilot jet and 77.5 main jet. The 250cc I think has 17.5 pilot jet and 110 main jet. So go for somewhere in the middle of those sizes as a guide. The actual carbs are the same on both 125 and 250 but with jet size differences. There is an air box mod you can do that would help get a bit more power too. Also check your CDI (actually a TCI) and see what model it is. You want the TDNF45 as it is unrestricted 66mph. The TDNF44 is 50mph and the TDNF43 is 57mph. I have just got my hands on a XV125 1997 (TDNF45) with 6,700 miles on the clock and might go this direction myself. Garaged for 20 years now needs new intake and chain for MOT. But with a taped up intake (cracked) and a service it is sounding lovely. Has the original Cheng Shin tyres.

  13. Hi, I have just taken on my first project, a 1978 Yamaha DT175 which needs some attention. Managed to get the engine running. VID-20210815-WA0001.mp4 I ride a XT660z on many adventures around SA and have also got a 2006 WR250 which is somewhat underused. Looking forward to sharing info on the forum

  14. Almost certainly NOT something you want to attempt, even if you're SURE that there's no real traction going on!!!

  16. i go out after 7:30pm to avoid traffic, or before 9:30am on weekend mornings. taking it easy preserves your licence and allows you to enjoy the scenery my last ride i decided to treat the bike to some salt air. stopped at Barton on sea to enjoy the view across the Solent to the isle if Wight. the car parks had cleared out a lot by the time i got there. its always nice to avoid other people when your a miserable old git like me

  17. went out with a mate to Southport carousel Took it really easy as too warm and the car drivers just CBA driving sensibly. Avoided a few situations if I'd been a bit faster. Lots of harvesters and tractors out too ATM
