Hi from darkest Dorset
Hey all, another newbie.
Having reached the grand old age of 46 and having 2 of my 3 kids off my hands, I succumbed to a lifelong desire and bought myself The Bike.
It needs a bit of work, but on the whole is in good condition.
Can anyone recommend somewhere to get spares?

@jem71 hello and welcome to the forum 🖑
Lot of spare parts used and new can be found on eBay and on few facebook pages.
Hello and welcome.
Yeah spares are drying up, but lots of stuff can still be had new.
What is it you're looking for? Maybe some members here can help.
Bit of a list I'm afraid...
most of which I have managed to find on ebay.
The bike is a French import so the first thing on my outstanding list is some sort of overlay for the speedo
Do they even make these???
Sorry, I'm a bit of a bike dunce.....
@jem71 I would leave the clocks in Kmh unless there is some real need for them to be in Mph.
It would be a new set of clocks, which are either not going to be cheap, or battered. You may also need the UK spec speedo drive.
Is it legal to ride with just the kmh?
Have googled it, but got lots of conflicting answers....

Hi and welcome!
I too have followed a dream and are currently battling my newly purchased DT 125r back onto the road.
As other guys have said eBay and gumtree are great resources.
I find some of the groups on Facebook to be a great help for breaking parts.
Also new parts in wemoto, Yambits, Aj Sutton’s, motorcycle spare parts.
I have found though the original parts cost a lot of money!
Hope you have fun and think of the end result when your patience is tested......because it will be!
@jem71 hiya unit 5 sell an overlay on Facebook or atleast they did I meant to get one give them a check
They don't even test the speedo on an MOT. I would tell the tester that the drive has been converted to measure MPH but displayes KPH. They won't ask.
Lovely, thanks for the info!
I forsee many idiotic posts from me in the very near future.....please have patience...;o)
@calum kmh are legal bud?
@declan Mu Starlet is KMH bud. It's a grey import.
@calum mines in kmh I looked it up a while ago it’s perfectly fine and legal just a pain for the rider

@jem71 Welcome to he club, at 46 your still young dude. I'm 49 and had not ridden a motorbike for 30 years since I was 18, young, dumb and full of cum!!! LOL
I got into cars at 18 and it was only until last year I fancied owning a motorbike again. Of course it had to be a DT and I loved it!!!

@jem71 It's 100% legal to have the speedo in KPH, it's how fast you ride that isn't. Just do the math's in your head eg.
48Kph = 30 Mph
65Kph = 40Mph
97Kph = 60Mph
112Kph = 70Mph
Just be mindful of those speeds and you will stay within the speed limits!!!
Hello, how about a picture of your bike, don't forget to check European ebay as well, postage can be high though but good for finding elusive parts
