    Bud, no offence meant but just search ‘aftermarket dtr125 kickstart’ in the web. No idea what you like or would suit your bike…

    Unless you have some pics 🙂 …

    @Rxvert2k-0 Hello 😃

    Yes lots more updates. I've taken photos, but I am awaiting a good point at which to update this thread.

    I've bought:

    A bunch of Aprilia RX125 parts (better spec than ETX) Aluminium Swinging Arm Gas Shock Absorber Rear Brake Pedal New Bearings Linkage Rerefreshed Dual Radiator Setup Arrow Expansion Chamber (A lot lighter than stock) Polini 160 Big Bore Kit Italkit Pneumatic Powervalve Dellorto VHST Flatslide Carb Lightweight Clutch Pressure Plate I just dropped the frame off for powdercoating last week. Engines out for an overhaul All new bearings and bushes New Old Stock Genuine Fairings New Old Stock Genuine Graphics Kit

    I wanted to update this thread when I had it in a viewable position.

    There is lots to update on, but I want to get it in a more showable position before I blog about it.

    @SpookDog
    Usually 2-3 days plus customs, and maybe another 2-3 days depending on the carrier and if it’s a Friday when it lands. I’ve been tracking my bit of Japanese exotica for the past week and waiting for customs clearance, not like an impatient parent at all 😂

    I remember reading an article in superbike magazine about oils in the uk some years back and basically they said most of the oils sold in the uk are manufactured and refined in the same place, by the same company that owns or trades under the Fuchs Silkoline banner. I know not all oils are the same and it’s down to cost and personal choice. But I still love the smell of Castrol R and Shell advance Karting oil comes a close second. 🤣

    @UngeMan Also worth getting some Bark Busters or similar wraparound handguards as they protect levers/master cylinders as well.

    @Stevie-Wonder Pretty sure he documented it all on this website...

    Ye I know @Calum I’ve re-reading it but all the photos are now gone 😞

    @Challenger I’ve got a v force blaster 200 Reed cage that should help right ?

    And thanks @scrimsmustang! If I’d been known it was simple earlier I think I’d have already done it 😂

    Excusing the powervalve blade itself do you need the WR’s Servo motor, pulleys and housing etc

    And I presume you need either a 200cdi or a Zeely/Ignitech programmable ignition too

    No you can use a 125 servo and a 125 CDI with no problems at all

    @hotshot-iii My current bike is in the house, but I own my place. And it's because I have ran out of garage space!

    @calum I only found out myself a couple of years ago and they are very subtle differences. Most people wouldn't even notice. I only know because I read it somewhere.

    @calum I'm sure there's some to be had in the EU if you could find a good example and import it back into the UK. I'm not sure what the import duties are like now since brexit, but it would be well worth the hassle if it could be done. i bet it would be a beast on the road for-sure. 🏍 💨
