Hi there. I am not an owner of the z125 (yet) but have been playing in the small bike scene for almost two decades. Mostly I have some insane built Honda CT70's and some sick custom CB100's with big motors stuffed in them.

One of the next things I want to start thinking about is the z125...either as a parts source or as something to build.

I'm hoping someone on here can do me a solid and do a few measurements for me. I really am looking to find the dimensions of the forks on this bike, because I want to know if they are the same as the KSR110 which was never made available here in the US. I actually have grafted KSR forks onto one of my bikes, and do have them sprung with preload tensioners on them.

If someone would be willing to take a few minutes and provide me some measurements, I would be grateful. Looking for the following.

Top clamping area
bottom clamping area
total length to axle center
width, center to center of the forks.

Thanks!

Top clamping area / 1.530 Dia.
bottom clamping area / 1.610 Dia.
total length to axle center / 25.5 Length @ full drop
width, center to center of the forks. / 7.250 cl-cl
.
Did some cross reference for KLX110L forks that have 1.5" more travel and the triple clamps seamed to be the same matching OEM part numbers , maybe needing the different bottom bearing and grind ledge trick
.
Gave up myself and just bought another bike . But made my Z' look Dirt/Dual Sport but still totally stock suspension and motor except pipe

Welcome (potentially) to the Z community! I have a CT70/140 that has been my DD for about two years and just grabbed my Z a few weeks ago. It’s comfy😜 Since Kawee beat me my work is done lol.

Thanks for the dimensions...they seem to be the same as standard KSR110 forks, at least on the outside. If that's confirmed, that should open up a whole lot more tuning options since the KSR110 has been around for more than a decade, and the overseas tuning market is pretty mature on them.

Welcome fatcaat! I remember reading some of your posts on lilhonda forums over the past few years. I sold my ct70 last year and bought a z125, sometimes I miss the nastalgia of the 70 but I now have a more suitable daily driver in the Z. Looking forward to seeing what you do if you decide to buy a Z!
