Hey everyone, we just added this forum to our Sponsor lists.

The Z125 Pro is our newest Project bike.
So we will being doing a bunch of Videos, write-ups, reviews, and general discussion about the bike.
We've had our bike for a little while now, and had a chance to put some miles on it.
So far it's been a blast.
Since many of us, had a Grom or have a Grom, it's a good bike to compare to the Z125.
If nothing more then just having a baseline.

The bikes are very similar in some ways, and quite different in others.

Over the next few months, we will go over all our findings, and experiments, and modifications.
What works, what doesn't. How it works.
Is it worth it or Is it not.
Reliability, Maintenance, and much more.

SOME NEW SHOES.

Michelin PURE SC 120/70 & 130/70 .

With proper Sized Rubber. ;-)

In addition the taller tire will also help gear the bike down a little so it's not reving out so quickly and easy.



both are wider making the bike feel more stable.
And the Rear is taller, which brings the revs down a little.

This bike needs the revs brought down badly. It's so over geared.

The Stock Airbox is very restricting. The inlets for the Airbox are barely the size of your finger.

So getting rid of the airbox, and installing a Chimera Short Stack Ram Air intake was a must.

This setup has worked great on the Grom over the past 2 + years... and the concept works just as great on the Z125.

This setup also saved over 1lb of weight, while increasing airflow and giving the bike a little extra grunt.

More Air = More Power.

The K&N Filter is washable and will out last the bike... so it pays for itself over time.

Another bonus is it retains the stock Crank Breather tube.

All in All it's a very quick and easy installation.

One of the first mods we do is a full system.

Yoshimura has a long standing reputation on being one of the best exhaust.
The Z125 Yoshimura exhaust is proudly Made in the USA.

It Saves approx. 4lbs of Weight
Sounds amazing
Looks fantastic
Gives the bike a little kick in the pants.

Overall it's a win, win.

Installation was very easy and straight forward.

Cari walks you through the install step by step.

Some Great Sound clips included in the end.

The Mirrors match the Lines of the bodywork much better then stock.

Less Bulky looking.

Those mirrors do look a lot more fitting, really like those
.


Most definitely.

We have some miles on them now, and once we got the alignment just right, they really give you a great view of what's behind.
