Loss of Speed and Revs
So here is the story: I bought my Dt125r 2002, 2 years ago, it was driving fast, quick response to 75 mph and i could redline the RPM.
But it wasn't reliable, sometimes it bugged and acted strange.
Than I thought, let's put it back original. I removed the carb, cleaned it and replaced the main jet (280) to original (240) the rest on the carb was original.
I drove to work and on my way back it acted strange, it bogged and died..; (to lean) piston rings worn, so no compression.
The previous owner, drilled holes in the airbox and cut the whole top open. (way to much air + main jet 240 = to lean.
Took my Dt to the garage and the bored the cilinder out. it was alive again.
Now i fixed the airbox and putted a main jet 260 in it (scared to run lean again)
But after the rebore, the bike isn't that fast anymore, maxspeed is 56 mph and max revs 9000 RPM.
Does anybody know what to do or what can be the problem.
I would love that my DT could get his Speed and Revs back..
Thank you. (Sorry for my english)

I'm Stef from Belgium and this is my Dt125r.
I repainted the exhaust and put some new dirtbike tires on, to go riding in the woods ;).
It's my first bike and I love it, sometimes it can be a pain in the ass, but I love it :D.
(I'm glad that I found a Dt forum that is alive)
