    Yamaha YBR125 '08
  1. Hi all, My bike (YBR125 2008) is due for it's first MOT, and I gave it a quick check over. One thing I did notice was oil seeping out of one of the fork seals, so I'm guessing I'll have to replace that before the MOT itself. Is this a job I could do myself? Or is it worth getting the local (!) bike shop to do it before doing the MOT itself? Bear in mind my access to tools has been limited, although could easily buy what is needed if it's easy to do. What would I need if I tackle this myself? For reference, I just serviced the back brake (seized due to dust) and also replaced chain and sprockets (quite easy IMO), so I'm not afraid of getting my hands dirty.
  2. Hi, I've been riding the last 2 years, first on a chinese disaster, then I got my Yamaha YBR 125, 08 plate. Lovely bike, great ride. Currently off the road dues to having an MOT and I've got to re-do my CBT. Funds didn't allow for a test yet, but will be looking to get my licence early next year. Couple of questions I need to ask about the MOT - so I'll stick them in the workshop forum. Rich (aka arkive2097)
