Cool man. Yeah the exhaust bolt problem is one of the biggest flaws in the V125 design. Seems like a lot of bikes that have hit the 8-12k and beyond mark start having that problem. Obviously, 2WD qualifies in the 'beyond' category. Keep riding.

This is a great thread. I've been contemplating buying a 125 for a few years now and have finally convinced the wife "she" needs one. I've tracked down a 2005 model with 2300 miles for $1k. Seems like a good deal from everything I've been looking at. I'm not sold on the red but I figure I can have it repainted down the road. Gloss black or maybe a hunter green/tan combo.

This thread has been an inspiration as I've been looking at most of the pieces you've installed and you've turned me on to a few new ones.

I have a question for you. Why did you not change to 12g rollers or sliders? Most mod threads I've read this is where people start. Is there a downside to it that I'm unaware of?

I'm going to leave the engine mostly stock to start with. I haven't ridden a bike/scooter in a dozen years and my wife's never ridden one. I'm thinking about starting with some things that will pay off later like the air filter, exhaust, new turn signals front/rear and that taillight you used. Your scoots rear end looks amazing.
