88cc big bore or 125cc motor...

for about the same price i can pick up a big bore kit for my honda fiddy or a 125cc motor with a 4 speed manual clutch.

has any one done the 125cc motor swop? i know i will proly have less problems down the road if i keep the honda motor (and do the 88cc big bore) but for the price if the 125cc ever brakes i can just get a new one.

Better yet just buy my 70 with the 88 kit and race head /cam already installed.

no thanks Tony, i need to slow down on buying toys. i tripled my collection this summer. i just want to "pep up" the fiddy a little bit. i would put a turbo on it but i can't fined one small enough for the life of me.

if i could get the xr50 to keep up or pass up the crf80 on the trails i'd be happy.

if you buy the right motor the swap is worth while. you can sell the stocker motor pretty easily. if you decide to sell the stocker motor for cheap let me know, I'm building a stocker z50.

if you want specific suggestions and recommendations, pros/cons, etc. let me know.

Swap front sprokets with Alex, his will be slightly more manageable and yours will have more acceleration.

This is what Ken and I did

they say it "bolts right in" all i will need to get is a clutch lever and cable.

how are the stock clutches on the fiddy motors? are they reliable with the big bore kit?

the stock clutch with the big bore will be short lived. If you swap out the springs for HD ones it will last longer and grip harder without slipping. I did springs on my 88/head stocker build and it held up pretty well, though by the time I sold I was starting to think new plates would be needed soon.

the china lumps will bolt right in, just get a good one. You get what you pay for. I'd make sure it was N-1-2-3-4 pattern, finding neutral on the 1-N-2 gearboxes is tough. GPX makes a nice solid china lump.

buy a quality engine, that's all I'm saying. they all look the same, but internal build quality is the difference. gpx 124, 4 up, would be what I would do. It's about the same as a stocker running an 88/head but you dont have to build it, it has a manual clutch(good and bad), and the extra gear is good for more top end speed if that's your thing. 1st gear is pretty short though.

No one is going to pay $900 for his used fiddy. $800 is the most he will get. I have seen some stock 2006s go for as little as $500.

how does that mean jack fucking shit? I know more about 50s than you could ever dream, so as a resource I'm much more useful to him, but all this is moot since he doesnt know what he's going to do and I still had first dibs.

I am taking my ball and going home. In all reality I am just giving Cook a hard time. But I really do need the ignition fixed, stupid points.

if you're really slick you can advance the ignition timing with a points system easily. Though you can with the cdi system too.

Offhand, I don't know how to advance or retard timing on a bike with points. If it's anything like a car it's super easy either way.

How much is a transistorized ignition for a dirtbike? Maybe $30 I'm guessing? Screw checking point gap and filing down burnt points on the side of the road. Blah!

UPS man is dropping off a box 'o parts toady. I get to take shit apart this weekend. Yea!

FTR Maynard is a firm opponent of 2-wheeled ghetto fixes. The truck is a different story. I'll fix that bitch with duct tape and coat hangers if I have to.

Smartdrug fixed the throttle cable of his Taurus with a pen cap, and the clutch cable with the body of the same pen. True story.
