Alright guys, this is my first thread(Hi my name is Sp4rks, I'm new here, blah, blah, blah) based on my bike. Now, that is my '02 KTM 125sx, started life as a competition ready MX bike, it was neglected, after I bought it, I started getting it ready for more enduro riding, after fixing/ getting fixed all the stuff that was wrong with it. Now, I was looking at some numbers, and it looks like this bike makes more power(But with much less weight, stock) than a KLR650R, one of the preferred "low end"(But nearly indestructible) bikes on this forum. So, I figured, 2 stroke 125 adventure bike? Why the hell not. I'm 17, giving me the ability to make up my lack of experiance with poor judgment, and beat up on my body by going on an adventure with a 125cc 2 stroke mx bike. Of course, there's some problems(and non-problems) with trying to do this. Here's my list Problems: Gas mileage(Acerbis makes a 6.6 gallon tank for this bike, that settles that, if I need more range, I'll add a baja designs rear auxiliary gas tank) Cooling(After market over-sized radiators, assuming they'll fit with the Acerbis gas tank) Oil Capacity(Don't have a solution, maybe an external stator that increases capacity?) Powerband(Space out the gearing, toss in a flywheel for good measure) Power(75W Stator, I don't need much, just for lights and GPS, don't even need enough to start with, it's kickstart only, I don't plan on using heated grips, or other comfort stuff) Durability(The frame needs to able to handle enough gear for where ever I go, that's the only problem I see so far, other stuff such as pipe armor, skid plate, and handguards are readily available Fairing(Some wind-protection would be nice, if I could find a rally style fairing for this bike, that'd be great, if not, a mountable windshield would be fine) Luggage(I need to carry stuff, water proof would be nice) Non-Problems(Basically, stuff that doesn't matter to me) Vibrations(Unless it shakes the welds loose, I handle some vibes, I'll toss in some inserts on the pegs if anything) Comfort(SDG seat is pretty nice and I already got it, heated grips, passengers, noise, and the like is stuff I don't think I need, mostly because I intend to exploit the benefits of being a 17 year old male, such as being able to be hard on my body because it's nearing it's prime) Anything else I missed? Once I get started, I'll either post here in the "two smokes" forum or the "some assembly required(speaking of which, where would this conversion go?). And out of curiousity, has anyone else(Other than that guy that tried to do Paris Dakar on a KTM 150xc, yes, really) tried something similar to this? A 2 stroke adventure bike built from a modern 2 motocross bike?
