Just found a '94 DR125se on craigslist. how is this bike? I do a lot of sand riding would my wife be able to follow or is it under powered. Her never ridden a motorcycle before I think this would be a good learning bike for her. I figure that if she isn't riding it I could ride it with the kids to keep from overheating my YZ.

Lend me your input.
Which way did they go? They are suppose to be following me, I am their leader.

Guys, I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure the DRZ125 engine is totally different from a DR125Se engine. I'm sure the BBR guys are talking about the DRZ125 (which is the same as a KLX125). IIRC the DRZ/KLX125 was made by kawasaki.

A DR125Se wouldn't be my choice for a dedicated off road bike, especially not in sand. It'd be a fine bike for bopping around the city and exploring dirt roads. Its rather heavy, slow and poorly suspended as dirt bikes go.

Just curious - Is the frame the exact same as a DR200?

I fount a dr125 with title for next to nothing and I have access to an off-road only dr200 for really cheap.

This might be bad form but the ThumperTalk forum is a wealth of info. More specifically the DRZ-125 and DR sub-forums.

A large proportion of the Suzuki DR/GS/GN/DRZ/SD/LT internals are interchangeable. This means it's possible to go up to 190cc with the DRZ bore&stroke kits or use the heads&pistons of some quads to bring up the capacity.

Myself I have only a LT250 camshaft in my 82 DR125 atm which has a noticeable midrange boost but i'm leaning out at top. Next month i'm getting the Wiseco 61mm forged piston (originally for the DRZ-125) which requires an LT185 head-gasket (or a DRZ125 61mm top-end kit from cometic gaskets) and a rebore.
