2004 Suzuki RM 125 – Test — Review – Dirt


Tuesday, February 24, 2009

2003 RM125 is a great that ended the Dirt shootout with a score of 95 out of 100. Competition in the small-bore is so tough, though, that 95 left it fifth. With the of the new, lightweight Honda, and Suzuki baby-thumpers, surely the will be even more

Surely Suzuki’s R — D had their hands full their new RMZ250 thumper, but of pushing the RM125 aside, made some great to keep it competitive. They re-engineered the 2004 RM125 and added a swingarm-mounted (rather frame) linkage. Some of the new are visually less noticeable as improved hardware, better to tolerances and many small changes to increase the durability and of the Suzuki.

They also added first quick-adjust clutch our test our first discovery was the new changes. The seat is 10mm for a more natural relationship to the and handlebar. The change allows riders to feel more yet are still suitable for taller The lower seat foam is than ’03 but still inviting to some.Over all the motor feels than competitive.

The track chosen for the test was loamy and hilly Cahuilla definitely a good place for a test. The Champion Yellow makes short work of berms and up hill straight-aways, you let it fall off the pipe (drop the or lose momentum. Then it some serious clutch to get the motor revving again.

A rear sprocket helps the to recover more quickly you make mistakes, though it may not be for a less hilly track..Suzuki put a lot of into the brakes on the new machines, and it was well spent. They always been lacking in the department, but no longer.

The new brakes are very powerful and seem to fade during the despite hard use that some rear rotors.The and suspension on the Suzuki’s has always a very responsive and this is no exception. The suspension is well and plush. The fork also has bottoming resistance.Below are some of the new and changes made to the 2004 RM 125 check the October issue of Rider for the full story.
