Nothing down low. Would stall if it wasn't kept on the pipe or the clutch wasn't fanned. Exploded on top. This is the scariest bike I've ever ridden and I nearly fell off the back of it the first time I brought it up on the pipe.
Front was good. Back shocks were way too stiff for riders under 160 pounds.
Very good. All the 125M's had nice brakes. The back brake used a cable.
By 1977, the rest of the motocross world had caught up to the 125M and passed it. Honda couldn't sell them. I bought mine in 1980 brand new for half what a new CR was selling for.
