From Husky SM to DT125RE Enduro!


  • Hello, I always wanted to ride an enduro, but never had a choice to buy one though... Since 15 I had SUPERMOTO-Scooter which I had rebuilded, it looked like this.

    Then succesfully I got A1 category (for 125cc enduros) and sadly I got Husky SM. It was terrible to ride on forests and quite uneasy to ride on roads..

    So I sold it for ±2400 euros and bought this DT125RE for 1.3k!

    Still, It got much more perfomance than husky, and I'm glad that now I have my first enduro! Now ordered new parts (hand guards, now thinking of new exhaust, spoke covers and etc) which i spended about ±400 euros. Hopefully I will de-resctrict it, and get much more perfomance than I have now!

    anyways any suggestions what could increase perfomance?(deresctrictions included)thanks!


  • @Edvinauskas.Very nice bike you have there mate! I hear the best thing you can do to increase performance is to buy an aftermarket Cdi unit! A few forum members are running these with there bikes other than that you seem to have everything else covered like new exhaust etc 😃.


  • Very tidy bike and for 1300 euros is a very good price by the looks of it. Bikes in Europe are always so much healthier and cheaper than here in the UK haha.


  • @Biker_123 Is there any aftermarket CDI's for DT125RE? I don't think that it will help to increase acceleration or higher rpm's, wire trick should do.

    @Minia Absolutely not, there is no good offers here in Lithuania, I waited for 9 months to get this kind of offer, a lot of people make a pile of s**** of motorcycle, or sell it for a lot of money (for example 2500 euros like me for husky sm :D(i got it for 1.5k tho))


  • @Edvinauskas. Yes mate there's a few aftermarket CDI units available a popular one is the zeeltronic I think it's called and it de restricts the bike as the current CDI restricts the Rev range even when you de-restrict the bike using the wire method! Yamaha apparently encourage the use of an aftermarket CDI unit and it gives you the best performance gain you can get for your cash! There are 3 restrictions in place on the later dt's so take care of them first and then look into the aftermarket CDI unit 😃


  • @Biker_123 so you're saying that there are 3 restrictions on place, so what is it? Wire method, exhaust and?..


  • @Edvinauskas. Maybe not in Lithuania, but in France you'll easily be able to find clean DTs for very cheap. I would know, mine was bought for 1050 euros, just over 20,000km and not a single scratch or speck of rust. You would not find that in the UK. There are also 2 very clean DTRs atm on LeBonCoin for 1300 euros, once again no scratches or rust.

    Honestly, I go to France 1-2 times a year. I'd love to go down in a van, grab some clean bikes and come back up and sell them here. Instant profit. No way you can find a clean, stock DTR like mine here for the £820 or so quid it was bought for. Impossible.


  • I got a big van if u ever fancy getting a couple too make some cash


  • I'm surprised the husky wasn't to your fancy, in terms of spec they destroy the dt, they simply were designed to be better.

    Dt can be pretty cool off road but after all my mates sold theirs I decided it was too dangerous to off road by myself so went sm.

    Tidy re though!


  • Nice DTRE man, surprised you swapped to a DT, the Husqvarna WRE is miles better.


  • @Calum Here in Lithuania its VERY VERY VERY hard to find something like husqvarna wre or wr, or ktm exc (2 variants in lithuania here only(im talking about 125cc)) So yeah, if there would be something like husqvarna wr 125, I would take loan, buy it, and then sell this dt, but now, im in love with it 😄

    BTW Husky SM has lower perfomance than dt, but CR and WR is faaaar better 🙂 Also, mods on Husky is expensive af 😄

    @Minia Also, my DT125RE has 3k kilometers in it. It was bought by bussinesman in italy (in '07), and he bought it for his children, and he ride only in forest, and held it for 3 years 😄 tbh it started very hard, had to change oil, fuel, but now its clean and nice af!

    Definetly a nice find, be proud of it!

    There's a company on eBay who does exactly this "unit5motos" they brought me a DTR over from France and it's quite possibly the cleanest DTR I've ever seen as most of the DTs here where I live are junk and it's near impossible to find ones that can go back on the road there normally treated as field bikes.. I own 3 dt's at the moment love them 😃 My French DTR was totally scratch free when I bought it with the equivalent of 800 miles on it and bought it from the above company and they supplied the NOVA registration number, French v5 so registering here in the UK is simple.


  • Yeah unfortunately the dt is quite a sort after bike, by thieves especially...Once they get robbed, it's hard to get them back to perfect health


  • @Biker_123 I've heard of them 😉

    @mad73 Thanks for the offer, but It was really just an idea. For now XP
