    Trying to make some changes on my Z125. Do you have the part numbers for the fenders that you got? What did you use for mounting bracket’s?

    My Front fender is a UFO KX60 84'-04' fender because of the 12" wheel . 1/4" bolt through headlight and drill the bottom headlight bracket for the 2 front fender holes used . the headlight bolt can be tight , but fender bolts cant be run up tight due to the angle so just till they touch with nylon locknuts will keep it there . my headlight in pic's is lifted 3/4 inch . ( a real bi**h so i wouldn't advise it) So without the lifted headlight use spacers to match radius of fender to radius of tire .. no trim at front of fender, but back needs to be trimmed to keep air flow to motor just above head level
    .
    4 pics max so doing another post for rear fender ............

    Rear fender is a ACERBIS KX250 94'-98'... There is a lot of waste !!! It was a bee' to trim from scratch, but with the 8' and 12' numbers marked off on fender before trimming it should be a lot easier . leave excess between the 8" and 12' marks and trim down slowly to fit around tail end. I wanted it 2" longer than it turned out which is why the KX250 fender, but trying to get the trim right to rear-tail gap it keep getting shorter n shorter , so add some evenly to the 8 & 12" if you want . (10" & 14") ... then just the 2 back 1/4-20 bolts hold it on and out to match the rear tail body lines ..

    Wish I knew what it looked like before you cut it down – – I find a ton of them on eBay but they’re all for models in the last 15 years ...

    Made a much needed pipe guard and skid plate due to there being no frame under the motor like most bikes

    My wife's wanted a Z125 since the day she first saw one. I just picked up a nice used bike -- good shape, only 1100 miles on the clock, in her favorite colors, no less -- rode it home, and parked it in the garage. I wonder how long it will take her to notice... :D

    She found the new bike this morning :-)

    And I must say, these Z125s are even nicer than I expected. I'll be watching this thread for ideas, because we may end up with two of them...

    That forum has already been useful. I spent some time last night prowling through the tech section. There's some good stuff there.
