A 2006 Yamaha YZ125 project from Faster USA is our main focus on this week’s Two-Stroke Tuesday brought to you by Boyesen. We feature products from Regina Chains and DP-Brakes in the 2-Stroke Hardware section and don’t worry 2-Stroke Theater is packed with project bikes and OEM first impressions of premix burning machines for your viewing enjoyment. Check out our exclusive link to 10-Things You Might Not Know About Yamaha’s YZ125 at the bottom of this post.
The Faster USA 2006 Yamaha project started out as a $1,500 purchase on Craigslist and ended up as one of the trickiest YZ125 builds we have ever been apart of. Check out that frame powder coated a metallic blue by San Diego Powder Coating. The engine was completely rebuilt using Wiseco performance products and some Cerakote coatings were added to spruce it up a bit. The Pro Circuit Works Style pipe and Ti-2 Shorty silencer added some bark.The Galfer oversized front rotor kit and custom built steel braided lines added much needed brake power to the 2006 YZ125. As you can see the OEM Nissin caliper received some TLC as well.The R-Tech Revolution plastic kit completely transforms the look of the Faster USA YZ125. A VHM head allows you to adjust compression ratios with different domes and the cylinder received some porting as well. V-Force reeds and a Pro Circuit exhaust also added some performance gains. Luxon is a new company in the triple clamp market out of San Diego. Their YZ125 clamps are designed to be lighter and stronger than the OEM units machined from billet aluminum. The handlebar clamps are also machined from billet and feature titanium hardware. Vince and Colin did a great job on this build and we will be the first ones to admit it’s on the extreme side of a Craigslist build. But, if you really start crunching the numbers you can realistically build one brand new machine this way or two used ones for the same money. Just let that sink in!
The DP Standard brake pads are direct OEM replacement items featuring a sintered metal compound. Designed for everyday street or off-road use the DP pads providing all-around braking performance in all types of weather conditions with low levels of pad wear and no thermal bedding-in required.
REGINA RX3 CHAIN
The 520 RX3 gold chain from Regina is designed to be lightweight for maximum performance while withstanding the severe stresses of off-road riding. Specially shaped bushings and chromized pins reduce elongation and are designed for maximum wear resistance.
