Default 125 help!

Hey Everyone hope your riding season is going good thus far. I just bought my first bike and im pretty excited. Thing is im only 4,11 and having some trouble with Height im very tippy toed. Ive done some research and ive heard from some that as Elka shock would work to lower it? Has anyone heard of this or know of a way to lower the back end. I have the front lowered but for me that is not a big difference. Also with my small hands, does anyone know of clutch and brake levers that are smaller. I have heard the asv but they arent made for the 125. Also I know tailand has made some anyone know of Canada of the US?
Any help would be awesome.
Lynette

Hey Thank you for responding. I have a 2008 125 RR. I think that is the info that you are looking for. Someone said an ELKA skidoo shock might work. I have no idea it seems to frustrate me more and more everyday. Thanks again

No problem at all. I re-assembled my 600 shock & swingarm to get some pics for you. I'm not exactly sure what your 125 has but in the pics, you can see what i circled in red. That's the link you would replace to lower it. Thus called "lowering links" in aftermarket mags/sites. Longer links makes it lower, but be careful not to get too long of a link because it might make your shock very spongy.. From what i can see on the web, your set up looks close to my 600..but i also took a pic of my 250 Ninja's link also. I hope this helps you. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask! Good luck!

Aw that sucks.. And you're welcome! Sorry i didn't help much lol. Looks like you will have to go with a different shock. Might call up your local Honda dealer and ask them first though. Good luck!

Default clutch and brake levers

Hi Lynette,
I was wondering if you ever managed to find aftermarket levers for your CBR125. I have the same problem as you (being short) The levers are a lil too uncomfortably far to really get a good grasp of the brake lever when i need it.
I like Pazzo levers, but it doesn't seem like they have any for the 125!

Anybody any suggestions? I'd love to get short levers.

Thanks!
