I'd ask on Thumpertalk before I gave up. As I said, I think the DRZ125 enigne is very similar.

Re:dr125

There's a fella at T/T who's done quite a bit of that to his DRZ125,he's using a 200cc Chinese copy engine,with good results,so far....That's the drag of it,there's no good or readily available upgrades for the bike if one
wants to make a huge change...as in an engine transplant.

I've got a KLX-125 and I think the biggest jug you can put in there is a 140 kit from Powroll or BBR ( I have one). A bigger carb, Hotcam, and different exhaust. Other than a re-stroke and a 16t sprocket, and you're done.

or you can put that cam in the 200cc engine
but for now the 125cc monster will work
it seems great for buzzing aroung town and teach people how to ride

its not the size of the bike its how you use it

jesse at http://www.kientech.com/ tells me that an lt 185 jug and head will work on the dr 125 making it a dr185 i think it is the same bore as the 200 with of course the 125 stroke
big bore short stroke will sing nice and and torque

i will pass the word when i know more

Don't have it anymore but it would maybe do 60 on a flat road with no wind.

here is pic of my dr125 with my stepson learning to ride and being a teenager
the dr is a great tool for mowing grass and other tools if there is a teen in the house

Forget it. I had that conversation with BBR when I read it, and they said that the engine had changed over the years. It won't work.

BBR is WRONG.
I currently have a LT185 top end on a DR125S, bolted up without any modifications. The major problems with doing this are twofold:
1) Finding the parts is next to impossible. Finding the parts in usable shape is alike to winning the lottery :p
2) Stock, the ALT/ LT 185 came with 7.9:1 compression, which is ridiculously low.

You can bolt a DR200 motor straight in, or use a Powroll DRZ125 stroker kit, or even Engines Only DRZ190 kit. There's many MANY options.
