Tdr125
 
Any one any known snags with these? My daughter wants to get started and this is one option. 2002 is what I'm looking at and I'm handy with a spanner.

Top ends wear like feck .iirc some are nicasil plated which if scored barrell it gets expensive real quick . It's like any 2 stroke, they need full rebuilds often enough and any tuning tends to fuck em

Varadero 125 if she is tall.
Cbr125 if she is small.

Keep it honda and 4stroke for a first bike.

I think the later models had no power valve,be seriously down on power but get a bit more longevity from the motor. Thereís a courier on one in Dublin,Iím sure heíd be able to tell you any downfalls they have pretty quickly :lbhbh:

Maybe a wr125 is another option if itís a trailie youíre after. Good to be higher up for starting out I think

I had one for 5 years from new, first bike and loved it. Missed how easily it was to get thru traffic once I moved up to the cbr

Cheers lads. I remember them from back in the day but I went down the Aprilia route at the time. Would have considered a TDR if I couldn't have had an RS125. Useful that the 2002 is bang on 10.9KW for an A1. Plenty of parts out there and piston kits are very reasonable. I get the barrel issues but replating is an option and certainly cheaper than a cylinder replacement. Seat height may be an issue for her but she's not a complete short arse so. ...

I couldn't get over the insurance quote. 1060 for a total newb 16yo on a 125? I probably paid nearly 3K pounds as a 19yo newb. Does this compute?
