now thats what im talking bout, i always thought of the 125 as not being able to cut it but seeing that has really impressed me. i have certainly bought the right bike for the job, so the 125 can do what the bigger bike can, and to be honest im a novice with 0 experience of road so perfect, and the pipe on that cant be the original too

I have a yam wr125r (off the road at min) verry capable to say it's only really a road going enduro looking bike, ive been allover on it trail riding, even as far as devon. It goes anywhere the big bikes go (just slower) never let me down out on the trail, bit heavy but apart from that i thought it was a brill bike to start out on.
I would get rid of the stock pipe, its bloody heavy and sounds crap.
Decent set of knobbly's on it (AC10's) i think suit the bike.
I stuck some pro taper bars on, they look well.
Hand guards and a good idea.
Bigger back sprocket to help it accelerate quicker.
Upgrade the headlight bulb.
Take pillion pegs abd top chain guard off.
And a tail tidy makes it a different bike.

Happy riding.
