So since a few of us are building TTR125's I figured I'de start a new thread. Mine's a recovered stolen bike I'm rebuilding on the cheap for a friend. Got all the parts necessary; (mostly bearings, paint, & plastic). And ALOT of cleaning. Waiting to get the steel swingarm back from powdercoating now. Found a ProCircuit pipe for $75, since the rusted exhaust that was on it had the worst re-welds i've ever seen, plus I think some mice built a nest in it. All full of crap. Needed a whole new rear wheel for it too. The little rednecks that stole it had evidently put a different wheel on it with no spacer on the sprocket side. (No idea what wheel it is, had a cush drive in it?) Rusted spokes, black drum hub, POS.
The good news is I think the D-bags parked it before they did any damage to the engine. So I'm wondering, what are some cheap power gains for this motor? Will a new cam with a stock motor make much difference? Can I do a hi-comp piston with the stock jug & head? So far I've just got the PC pipe and I've done the airbox mod.
