General Two Stroke Talk / 167lb CR125

Not my bike. Belongs to a friend that I traded some bikes with. It was tempting.

Other than a different wheelset and a trick pair of inverted works forks, that bike is still as it was back then. I almost got in in as part of a trade a while back but opted for a Factory Mugen 360 instead. While extremely cool, it was a little impractical as I would be wanting to ride the damn thing and probably crack some irreplaceable piece of carbon. :D

Date on that article shows May of 09. Why bring it up now? KTM had a problem and took care of it. Wish everybody else took that kind of responsibility. Go KTM!!

And the above post was not intended in any way to take away from the original Pro-Clean topic. Just for those of you with no Pro-Clean dealer, there is always an auto paint supplier around. As for Pro-Clean, get their bike wash concentrate in gallons and dilute it in a pump up sprayer. Best stuff ever for red clay stains. Red clay stains on your white riding gear? Mix a small amount in a bucket and pre soak your gear before tossing in the washing machine. White tennis shoes.....Pro Clean :)

If any of you need a good cleaner for bare metal pipes, go to your local PPG Automotive paint supplier and ask for a quart of PPG DX579 Metal Prep. It's a phosphoric acid based metal cleaner. Dilute it 1 part DX579 - 2 parts water. I would remove the pipe from the bike for this as the acid will discolor the zinc plating on the bolts. Put in a spray bottle or just apply from a bucket with a scotchbrite pad. Keep it wet for several minutes and scrub as necessary to remove the corrosion. If it dries, rewet. Once clean rinse well with water, wipe dry and immediately spray down with some WD40. Very easy to use and works extremely well. You can dilute it 10:1 and use on aluminum frames.

Still looking? What all year models will interchange with yours? I have a FMF ported cylinder and head off my nephews CR. Not sure the exact year, probably 99-00 model. It's doing me no good sitting on the shelf. And Millenium has done a bunch of cylinders for me over the years, top quality work every time.

Does anyone know if Newmann frequents this forum at all ????

He's probably one of those lurker types.
