    I had that bike for years, but orange. I got it when I was 14, as a leftover, held on to it until a schoolbus pulled out in front of me three days before I turned 21... GOT MY WINGS THAT DAY!!:rofl:rofl I had no pipes on it when the bus got me, she tried to say she didn't hear me. I spoke to a kid on the bus later and he said they were all saying" You're going to hit him!" Guess what, they were right.
    Oh well, I lived, even kept my leg, which took the brunt of the hit, that and my foot, kept that too!:clap:clap

    Hey Thread!

    I just sold my project bike and used the proceeds to pick up a used and aesthetically abused 2008 Honda CBR125!

    Its not the best looking bike, but its mechanically and electrically sound. Its had a bit of an identity crisis though - it started life as the red model CBR, but the owner decided he wanted a navy blue bike so her repainted it, and when he sold it the guy i bought it from decided he wanted a white bike, so he repainted it again...with tremclad spray paint... without removing the fairings :fpalm

    I have looked around and can't seem to find a CBR125 thread, search function always seems to only return a blank page for me.. like blank white.. so i looked around but don't know what section it would fall into since its a single, a street bike, and small enough to maybe be a battle scooter lol

    Recreateme - Best wat to search is thus:

    In Google, type:

    yoursearchterms + site:www.advrider.com

    As far as I know, the CBR125 has never been sold in the USA, so there is probably not a dedicated thread on ADV.

    Soild bike, I'm curious about the spark plug replacement as well (i assume it would apply to my cbr125, or be similar) - the best i can figure is you would have to remove the fairings if you can't reach it with them on. I have seen a couple youtube videos and its about 4 screws each side.

    Also, any of you guys with CBRs carry luggage, or even a bag strapped to the pillion seat? and if so how to you strap it down since these bike seem to have nothing back there but seat haha

    The guy i bought my 125 from removed its grab handle and then bondo'd over the screws and repainted it to make it disappear so i'm sure how i would strap something down..

    I have a Honda OEM Tail Pack. It's the same bag for the 125/250/500 and CBR650F's, with a different mount/bolt/strap kit depending on the bike. It's 19L in size, has a built in rain cover, is easily removable and can be carried with a shoulder strap. The kit is some bolts and straps, that fasten under the pillion seat. The bag attaches to the straps with buckles.
