I managed to source a new exhaust for my CG125 tracker that is just perfect! The end of the muffler is in line with the rear wheel spindle and it doesn’t foul on the stock kick-starter, bonus!

The Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride
New oil cooler fitted
Chrome Carburetor and Taller Gearing
I fancied a bit more bling so fitted a chrome carburetor. Changed the front sprocket to a 17 tooth as well. It will now do an indicated 120Km/h flat out . OK on the motorway cruising at 90-100Km/h now. The bigger sprocket was just what it needed. Not sure about all the yellow though. I will change the tubes and paint the choke lever black.
Fork preload adjusters installed
Front mudguard fitted
Front mudguard sort of done
I got a new Inverter MIG welder for Christmas so today I completed the front mudguard. I’m a bit average at welding, but the angle grinder hides many sins. It definitely won’t come to bits though. Paint job is a bit average too, but I needed to get paint on it quickly before it started to rust. Might give it a repaint once the sun comes out.
Looks better with the headlight brackets the right way up
New Stainless Steel Headlight Brackets Installed
I decided that the nice alloy headlight brackets pushed the headlight out too far from the forks, so I got these lovely stainless steel ones, a bit more retro like the stock ones. I think they look much better. A bit of tight squeeze with the speedo cable and headlight shroud but they also have a hole to mount my new mini indicators when they arrive.
New Big Bore Kit Fitted
got the engine back together tonight with the new big bore cylinder and piston. It’s now 149cc. I took it for a little ride up to the shops and everyone was looking at it. Still some work to do with re-jetting the carburettor, I went up two sizes on the main jet and raised the needle to maximum and now it’s way too rich. Better too rich than lean, but I’ll sort it out tomorrow. Still need to finish the front mudguard and modify the instrument bracket to hold a tachometer. My Christmas present from ange is a MIg welder so I can do those other little jobs over the Christmas holidays.
