I have seen people do it, but it is not the most popular choice for a motard. With that said though, it is all about what you want to do with it. There is not really a class to race them in in TMGP or CMRA.

I am sure a 125 tard would be a blast though, my 85 is a handfull! All in what you want to use it for.

Yo did you fall on your head at the track lately? You have a drz400sm. Look at it and now look at the 125. You get the picture. Besides you may have a time passing emissions tests with all that blue smoke. Sounds fun but lots of hassles to deal with. TJ.

tap into the stator. you may need to purchase a higher wattage stator. Also, moose makes external stators. From there the headlights are easy. Brake light is wired from a pressure switch. i do not think that turn signals are required.

It's very simple. I have all the wiring and stuff for my 426, but I never did install it, because i knew i'd goto jail with the supermoto setup on that bike.

consult thumpertalk.com, as I'm sure someone has done it with pics.

I did my KTM200. It was easy. Filled out and had one form notarized showing the changes I made to make it street legal and I was off and running, blue smoke and all.

would the aggressive powerband on a two-stroke 125 cause a traction problem on cement?

a heavier flywheel would help tone it down a bit
