TTR-125 Suspension Help - July 11, 2012, 11:11 PM

Well finally I'm getting some time to work on my TTR-125 pitbike. It's in serious need of springs both front and rear. I know BBR makes one but it's not stiff enough.

I also want to know what is a good website that sells just general parts for mini motos. Anyone have any favorites?

They will help you get the right springs. Also look into the BBR frame cradle.

I've got the BBR springs and a frame cradle on mine.
If you aren't jumping it this set-up will be fine.

That's good to know. I was scared of ordering it thinking it wouldn't make much of a difference. Thanks pimp!

Thicker fork oil too.
Fork brace helps.
Hollywood got me a great one.

I use 30wt.
And I added a bit more than stock to help against bottoming.

Sweet!

Just spoke to RaceTech and RaceCraft. Looks like RaceTech might have what I need in stock. The recommended .5 spring for the fronts and 8kg spring for the rear. Does that sound about right for a 270lbs person?

No idea.
I just got the BBR springs.
I knew the tires would be sliding before I got any serious cornering loads into the chassis so I wasn't too worried about it.
I only planned on riding dirt with my Trailwings but used it at Allsports with no problems.
Just change the fork oil regularly.
I change mine twice a year and amazed each time how bad the oil looks. ( shaddup Stillie)

Dayum. I got the bike about 6 months ago and its been sitting in my garage. The previous owner didn't touch anything since he bought it in 07 so once the springs come in I'm going to tare the bike apart and do a general once over. It's in great shape and used to start but now it just cranks and doesn't want to start so I'm guessing its the carb I have to clean. How hard is it to do the fork oil/spring change myself? It's not as involved as a modern day sport bike fork is it?
