he said your bike 2Ti, not town bike ;)



as for mods, Id be building a factory spec 125 chassis and purchasing an Aprilia RSA125 engine ;)

Nothing like a 50hp 125er with more midrange than one would expect

What would I put on my bike?

Me -- in better shape with more skill.  ;D

My bikes are so much better than I am its ridiculous to put performance stuff on them.

Yamaha CT3, RT3, MX125, SC500, Toy Prius, Diesel F250 (it all balances out)

2003 CR250R

Body/ Chassis-
   Frame would be slightly modified to allow the engine to sit lower in the cradle and drop the center of gravity without changing the frame geometry
   Carbon fiber gas tank w/sight gauge, made to sit lower in the frame and smooth out the bikes ergonomics from the gas tank to the seat    Carbon fiber seat pan
   Carbon fiber radiator braces and mounts
   Titanium foot pegs (wide)
   Titanium foot peg mounts, adjustable up/down/forward/      backward
   Carbon fiber Sub-frame
   Carbon Fiber air box with custom air boot for maximum air flow and efficiency
   Titanium bolts for high torque/load specs
   Aluminum bolts and drilled washers (anodized red) for all low torque/load specs

   Cycra power flow fenders front an rear
   Carbon fiber radiator guards/louvers
   Custom Blue seat cover with ridge panels made of the sticky stuff to keep my rear in place
   Reinforced swing arm to lessen flex and sway for a true to feel suspension action as well as increased stability

Suspension-
   Showa A-Kit front and rear(maybe try running the new air fork)
    Titanium Rear spring
   Custom billet triple clamps with 22mm offset
   Custom linkage and linkage arms for optimal suspension action and ride height

Engine-
   APT Billet Smart Carb 38mm Taper bored or oval bore
   Boyesen Rad Valve
   Cylinder and case reed ported to broaden the power band with as much over rev as possible
   Head modded to support maximum and even fuel burn and support the broad range power band
   Exhaust valve modded for max exhaust flow and to smooth out the hard hit for a bit more subtle hit
    Custom Cone pipe to suit the broad power band
   Balanced OEM crank with Ceramic bearings
   Matched cases
   Micro Blued internals (not too sure which parts would benefit from the process and which wouldn't need it)
   Wiseco single ring flat top piston (stock bore)
   Carbon fiber silencer with Titanium Stinger
   Carbon fiber ignition cover
   Carbon fiber clutch cover
   ECU relocated to air box with custom wiring harness
   I-Cat(maybe, don't know if it would be necessary)
    ***All engine mods would support 110 race gas***

Drive-
   Titanium sprockets and chain from Sidewinder or similar (if $$$$is of no concern, then aluminum sprockets and non o-ring chains would do, just change them frequently)
   Carbon fiber chain guide
   Carbon fiber drive sprocket cover
   Sealed bearing chain rollers
   Titanium chain adjuster blocks and bolts
   Transmission gears and internals would be Micro Blued for less wear and buttery smooth shifting
   Ceramic transmission bearings

   Braking Bat Fly 270mm front rotor
   Braking Bat Fly standard size rear rotor
   Brembo calipers front and rear
   Steel Braided brake lines
   Carbon fiber rotor guards and caliper guards
   Carbon fiber master cylinder and resevoir caps

Controls-
   Easton 1-3/8" handle bars (I am currently running these bars and they are much nicer than my Pro Taper Contour or Renthal standard)
   ARC composite unbreakable levers
   Kevlar grips
   Aluminum throttle tube with bar end bearing and adjustable Cams for greater variation in throttle control for the rider
   Hammer Head Brake pedal with adjustable tip
   Hammer head shift lever

Goodies-
   Carbon Fiber self venting low profile gas cap
   Red Plastics
   Custom Graphics (not sure what to put on them yet)
   

I know I'm forgetting a bunch of stuff that I would like to do, but it's a start!

All Carbon Fiber and titanium parts are intended to make this bike as light as possible using the existing frame and engine!

Just my thoughts on my current ride!

If you could mod your bike exactly as you want it.. What would you put on it?
« Reply #11 on: January 13, 2013, 01:08:52 AM »
01 Honda CR125:

Full Ohlins suspension and sent off to PC for their most hardcore treatment, possibly Showa A-Kit.
Scalvani Cone pipe and silencer combo
10 Sets of black excel rims, front and rear with different tire combos mounted on all
Full eric gore engine work with 144cc and every ounce of power possible and the very best race gas money can buy
Replace everything that is not engine and chassis with titanium/carbon fibre (except plastics)
Full hinson clutch kit with magura hydraulic control
brembo calipers front and rear
Oversize rotors
All sizes of PC triple clamps available for my bike (So I can choose what offset suits best)
Renthal titanium sprockets front and rear
Titanium chain (Would probably need to be custom made, repeatedly)
2013 CRF450r plastics
Smartcarb or Keihin 38
Thats all I can think of at the moment. Theres easily 10s of thousands of dollars worth of stuff there.

Miranda ain't no town bike(well I would like to think so anyway) ;D Hmmmm motorboating

A couple of things here  airboxes (on mxers)don't have air flow or efficiency they just have a volume and have to fit around the suspension. Titanium bolts are not torqued to higher specs a 6 or 8mm bolt should be torqued to the same figure regardless of material. Manufacturers spend a lot of money engineering the right amount of flex into frames and swing arms, if you stiffen the frame to much you reduce the feel.

Porting the cylinder(or worse still the cases) won't change over rev, the ignition does that, and by moving your stator you can do right now if you wish.On a CR you can spend a few 100 on a an ignition/pv controler that will allow a custom PV/ignition curves.
You would have $20k left over.

Is there ANYTHING you DON'T know about two strokes? I'm not being sarcastic either, you seriously seem to know EVERYTHING.
