    I know I said that four-strokes have dominated the pro motocross and supercross scene the past several years, but that doesn’t mean people don’t buy two-strokes anymore. In fact, riders are realizing how expensive four-stroke motocross bikes can be if there is a major failure, so they’re moving back (or to) two-strokes. Don’t fool yourself, the 125 two-stroke is a very fast bike, even stock, when properly tuned. When James Stewart entered the pro-scene on a 125, his lap-times were often as fast or faster than a lot of the 250cc riders because he knew how to ride his KX125 so well. He continued to beat four-strokes in 2004 when 250F’s started becoming “the bike” to race, so you know the bikes wasn’t lacking, that much.

    Unlike most other 125′s, the YZ125 has some bottom-end power. So if you’re not afraid to finger the clutch a little, you can turn it into a woods weapon because it is so light. The center of gravity is lower than four-strokes, adding to its maneuverability. I like riding both two- and four-stroke dirt bikes, but getting on the pipe and ripping it up on a YZ125 is just too much fun!
