    That's not too bad, did you get the old stuck off him aswell tail tidy etc....
     

  4. no they kept the original tail plate holder and screws for the fairing where the crash protector was fitted, i was going to ring him but truith be told i couldnt be bothered lol! its quite a long way there to pick up somethin im never going to use and i thought i'd mention it when i take bike for service

    you can sell it otherwise they will sell it. Call them and make sure they don't get rid of your stuff.
     

  6. they probs already did m8 i got the bike last month it was delivered on xmas eve lol, i read somewhere that they did the same to some1 else so it wasnt too much of a shock maybe if i say somethin they will send me another 1 they have lieing around lol i would just stick it in the shed incase i come to sell it at some point, tail tidy looks a lot nicer tho lol.. all i can think of why they made it how they did is maybe it improves handling somehow

    yeah it's the same but they brought it out again maybe because sales were so good on that colour type.

    Well I've never seen another GPR like that in a shop, or eBay or on another R125 etc.
    Sold it now anyway for £150 and now bought a Remus. :D

    More torque and a different sound. No more than 5mph top end though.
    Going to have fuelling checked at Yamaha. Must be that.

    Are you still only topping out at 65mph??

    Yeah. I reckon I need to have Yamaha check the fuel/air ratio.

    I have that Remus exhaust and the K&N panel filter.

    Perhaps if I tucked behind the screen and laid there for 20 miles Id get faster.

    Pissses me off.

    But the acceleration is faster than a McDonalds meal.

    You almost pull a wheelie each time.

    No probs with acceleration.

    Just top end is wank.

    Had around 80mph on mine (stopped looking at the speedo at 79mph lol) but, the norm is around the 70-72mph mark, depending on other factors like the wind direction and strength.

    Somedays though, it'll struggle to get there more than others

    Average is 70 to 72? That's not quite right.

    Yamaha claim 76 as stock and most people get 85.

    Basically the speed for the R125 to get when 100% healthy is 85 (or 86 when keep bouncing off rev limiter).
     

  18. took my bike in for service a few week ago and they sent me the tail end plate holder back.. they have to cut the wires so maybe thats why they just throw them to the side after fitting the tail tidy

    Oh wow, my bike reaches 88mph top, it'll easily get to 70 however if I have a pillion 70mph is the max...I thought that was the norm until I saw this post! :eek:
     

  20. So the outcome of this is chances are my air fuel mix is incorrect or air filter needs cleaning as on my MT I was getting 76 now down to 65 mph ..
