I'm looking for spacers with a bore of 22mm and a 25 mm OD, to get a 22mm alxe to fit into bearings with a 25mm bore. And also spacers center the wheel.
Stuff like this is why spending money on a metal lathe is not wasteing money. Get to know someone who is , a. into bikes. b. has a lathe or acsess to one. c. willing to help.
They'll need all the parts to make things fit.

I don't know where to buy metric tubing in the US. I will have to look around some.

Btw, my dad owned/operated a metric bolt & nut warehouse for over 30 years. 15,000 sq.ft of fasteners, even had lots of cold rolled precision shafting.....but no tubing. Not a lot of standard fasteners on vehicles anyway...Oh well.

Could you swap out the bearings for some with the proper ID?

Ha, I guess.

A quick search at Mcmaster.com will show some bronze flange bushings with an ID of 22mm and an OD of 27mm.

Items 6659K45, 6649k46

About $4/pc.

My axle is 22mm, if I change it to a 25mm then the brake caliper mounting hole, which the alxe goes through needs to be enlarged to 25mm too. Then I could use 25mm ID bearings in the wheel and the cush hub. That is probably the simplest solution, because 22mm ID bearings aren't standard with the 62mm OD of the cush hub bearing. But then I'll need to swap the bearings out in my dirt wheels too (I'm doing a motard conversion), if they will fit my dirt hubs.


I really appreciate all the work involved in the detailed conversions I've seen in this thread. Just modifying a set of mag wheel for my dirt bike is enough for my brain...., and my patience!

Maybe I already posted these; but anyway...

My D/S conversion 1983 FT500 Ascot, in the Collegiate peaks, Colorado, 1985 adventure gem hunting expedition.

Braided steel brake lines, regeared 15/52, RK o-ring chain, Acerbis plastic mirror, Cobra aluminum muffler, Sargent seat, Progressive rear shocks, Progressive front springs and air caps, hand guards, headlight guard, IRC D/S tires 2.75 x 19 front, 5.60 x 18 rear. I spent 6 days riding the high country searching for topaz, garnet, smoky quartz, beryl and epidote crystals, with some success.

This is my 2007 CBR125R,,, or what used to be. It currently has 49,000kms on it, so I decided to do some custom work on it.

First I put a set of Shinko 244 tires on it: 2.50-17 front/3.00-17 rear. I swapped the stock clip-ons for Moose Racing CR low handlebars by drilling into the stock triple, mounting a used set of TRX450 clamps, then some Rox 2" pivoting risers. I also raised the front end up by 1" by lower the forks down the triple clamp. Then I replaced all my cables with 4" extensions, and replaced my front brake line with a stainless steel braided hose. And lastly, I added some PowerMadd universal hand guards.

I call it the CXR 125 dual sport!

(After installing handlebars, grips, switches, levers, cables/brake line)




(TRX450 handlebar clamps, Rox 2" Pivoting risers, and Moose Racing CR low handlebars... I also used some JB weld to fill the rectangular hole left by the Honda emblem.)


(Stainless steel brake lines)


(PowerMadd Handguards)


My next plan is to add a Puig touring windscreen.

Thanks!

I bought it in 2008 with only 1500km on it too. 49,000 is nothing on one of these 125s. You see them are everywhere in Europe and Asia. I've even seen them go well and above 100,000 !

I just wanted to let you guys know how horrible you all are making my life...lol I'm out here in Iraq as contractor...a month to go...looking at these builds and just drooling. I've been looking all over craigslist and found an 83 Nighthawk 450 for $500 that just needs a battery. All that is well and good, but with only a 10x10 shed at my girlfriends house already filled with her 77 TS 250 and my 82 SP 250..there's no room to work. (and she wont let me put it in the basement) Thanks for keeping my brain occupied. Might have to sell the SP 250 this winter.....or maybe use the parts...hmmmmm

Can you expand on how you accomplished the cable extensions? Just starting a CBR125 build.

I got my buddy who owns his own shop to do them. He has a whole cable kit with assorted fittings and cable thicknesses. I can't say how to properly do it, because he's the master of his trade. He basically just cut the length of cable I need and fabricated it with the proper ends right in front of me. I measured the length I would need with some fishing line and let him borrow my stock cables to create new ones with.

It's really not that hard to do, but you'd be hard pressed to find anywhere that'll do it for you at a decent price. I knew the guy, so he charged me $30 per cable. But most places I found online will charge a lot more than that. You would also probably consider getting a longer brake line. I went to a place that specialized in hydraulics, and they made me up a stainless-steel braided hose for $70. A little pricey, but completely worth every penny. If you unplug the wiring from underneath the tank, you can reroute the wires to have JUST enough length with a reasonable amount of play for turning the handlebars.

One more tip... zip-ties are your new best friend.
