DRZ 125 L: Decent, mild trail

By James N. Stephens(Owner), May. 24,

I have an 04 KLX 125L (same as DRZ 125L). I am an older (51)trail 5’8, 155#. This is fine for my needs. I ride in the sometimes at moderate speeds, but I do to ride fast or climb hills too. This is up to the task.

It’s definitely not a bik. e but it has good torque and can most anything. I put on a 15 tooth sprocket (coutershaft sprocket) to top speed and I’m happy the results. My bike now has good top without much loss of

I opened up the airbox and raised the jet with a thin washer but use the main and pilot jets. is stock for quiet operation.

I like to maximize power and plan to exchange the stock jet with a 105 or 107. I’ll exchange the stock pilot jet I believe) with the next up 120 for better cold starting and off power.

The suspension is ok stock but springs from BBR would for any rider above 120# or so. The springs on this bike are soft and I plan to go heavier first and see how this feels. I plan to install a BBR frame to protect the engine case and and to prevent frame stretching.

This bike is a little in size for me but not too bad and I like the small, size for tight woods and loading on my truck cycle

I have owned many including a Honda xr 100, an xr and a Yamaha TT 12L all of which are similar to the 125L. Which is my favorite? If I could pick one now I would the TTR 125L first, the DRZ/KLX a second, the XR 200 third, and the XR 100 last.

If I was a small kid the order might be different with the XR/CRF 100 above the XR 200.

The TTR 125 has a better curve and feels a bit faster in the than the DRZ/KLX. Both handle pretty well and pretty comparable. The Honda 100s have lighter with less travel is definitly worse than the

Even the XR 200 has slightly worse than the 125s with the springs being particulary

I also like the sound of the and muffler of the TTR 125 better than the My DRZ just doesn’t sound as as the Yamaha or the Hondas I’ve though this is a subjetive The DRZ/KLX has more mechanical and whirring noises coming the engine and the muffler emits a more harsh thump the Yamaha and the difference is even when compared with the (Hondas have a certain thumper sound to me that I

The XR 200 did have the best ergonimics for my though I didn’t like the weight (223# compared to 176 for my I did really like the power of the XR It has a really torqey motor good speed.

Of the others, the TTR closest.

All in all I like my KLX just so far. It is comparable to the Yamaha, again, to me just a notch it in power, and sound. The differences are I haven’t mentioned the Honda CRF 150 or the 140 and have no experience with though I have read review about all these

I would definitely strongly the CRF 150 along with the TTR 125 if I were to buy a new The CRF probably has the power that I with my old XR 200 with the smaller that i like of my 125 (though the is more like the XR 200). the TTR have the advantage of lighter (172#, or thereabouts).

All bikes discussed seem to their following and would well for many with differences amoung them. In most people seem to the Hondas or the Yamahas with the and Kawasakis following closely
