TWO-STROKE SPOTLIGHT: JASON HAYTER’S 2007 KAWASAKI KX125

2007 KX125Before.

“This is a 2007 KZ125 project bike I have been working on. I bought it 3 years ago and stripped it down to bare frame. I had the frame powder coated black. I stripped the engine down and replaced all transmission bearing and replaced the standard crank with a Hot Works crank and also replaced standard cylinder with an after market Athena barrel and head. I put on a Bud Racing HGS pipe and carbon fiber exhaust.

I had the suspension revalved and serviced by Shock Treatment which used Race Tech suspension parts.
When I saw the kit to make the 125 look the same as the 2017 KX250F I started the process of finding out how to purchase the kit. Through phone conversations with Pro Circuit I found I could purchase the kit through a fella in new Zealand named Graig Guy. I purchased the kit then went about acquiring the parts from Kawasaki which included:

2007 KX125After. 

KX250F 2017/2018 PARTS Fuel tank Sub frame Seat Air box

Plastics kit

Through some extensive hours of heating and moulding the fuel tank to suit the KX125 frame, I then attached all the plastics, seat and a 2017 Bud Racing graphics kit to make the bike I have today. The one great thing I can say about Kawasaki’s is most the parts of the 2017 bike will fit the 2007 bike.” –Jason Hayter.
