How come you don't have a car /truck with the license plate "TA125" ?

No problem with following but, all kidding aside, be prepared to have coner speed like you have never had before. The thing is with these little 2 strokes is you have to keep the revs up to stay in the power range. The TA doesn't make power until 10K rpm and drops off at 13,500.

I'm out of vehicles for another vanity plate!!

"out of vehicles for another vanity plate". your so... vain. you sure you're not gay? i went on the line for you in the clip-on topic. the font on those numbers is a bit , well, delicate. maybe a san serif bold type face would look more manly. certainly more appropriate. not that you care what i think. (i just heard you say "like i give a s&^t what you think?").

why didn't you paint the front fender white with a red stripe? It looks as though it is all red.

jc, I don't know how much the TA engine shares with an rd125. Camelhairy has one of my spares right now. He tore it down to look at the internals. Something about beating Branson. The works shocks came with the bike. I have a sales slip from Works dated 1991 for a cost of $210.00 for the pair. I don't know why the springs are blue. And oh yea before parks61 says some wise ass remark the yamaha decal on the tank is tilted, i can't put decal/transfers on to save my sole!!

hey, I need a tach for my MT125. Anyone want to trade a Scitsu barely used that was on my honda 175 (twin, wasted spark) for one that will work on a single two stroke? (preferably scitsu)
