Good Little Bike.... (Score:1)
Power
The power is weak on the Bottom End (but a 53 Tooth Rear Sprocket fixes that), Mid-Range is good and that is the sweet spot of where I ride the powerband, Top End is good also, the bike is a screamer up Top with a long pull.

Remember these things can be made to go fast. Ron Lechien won the 1985 AMA 125cc National Championship on a Honda CR125.
Ergonomics
It feels very good. I really like the layout on 1984-1990 Honda CR125's. Feels like your in the Bike and not riding on top of it.
Suspension, Front
Front Suspension is a little soft and I can't find a nice balance out Front. It doesn't do anything weird it just feels soft throughout the Stroke. I jump it with no problems and it takes the landings well.
Suspension, Rear
Good rear shock, maybe a tiny bit harsh in the Mid-Stroke. Some time on sharp braking bumps it will kick side to side.
Brakes
Front Disc Brake is as good as anything on the market right now. The Rear Drum is an issue for me, you can just never get it adjusted exactly correct. It just can't match a Rear Disc Brake.
Comments
Good machine overall. I am actually going to Race one full time in 2009! Yeah I am serious, this will be my Race bike the entire 2009 Race Season.

No bottom end, ok middle, but when you hit the top that mofo takes off. It's pretty crazy
Suspension
No problems, doesn't bottom out
Brakes
When the front brakes are working their good, but their a bitch to bleed.
Comments
It's a fun bike to mess around on, and it can get pretty fast.

Power
Unbelievable top end. Put 3 grand into the engine. Nothing like the feeling of doin a wheelie at 70 mph
Suspension
For me, just right. I do lots a trailriden/hillclimbin. Great for the whoops. Just hit em perfectly and stay in sync all the way through with the power.
Brakes
ya the front brake is great! What? the back brake? IT HAS A BACK BRAKE??? nahhh
Comments
Just sold it. I miss it. Oh well, hopefully a CRF450 is comin to replace it.
