    older ttr 125 help with plastics

    my son bought a 2003 ttr 125 and it could use a little cleaning and fixing up to look good again. the problem is the bike needs new plastics and im having a tough time figuring out what to do and what really works. so here is my questions.....


    will 2008 and up ttr 125 plastics directly bolt on to the older bike?
    I also have read the yz80 rear and front fender from the 93 and up are a direct bolt on.

    my other question is can I put the smaller wheels 14/17 on the big wheel bike?

    thanks in advance.

    Hey congrats on the new addition. And welcome to the forum. The plastic update can be expensive. you need the 2008+ fuel tank, and seat, everything else bolts right up.

    The 1993-2001 Yz80/85 rear fender does bolt right up, 2002 and up is not a direct bolt on.
    The 1993+ front fender does require some modification to work. you will have to redrill the 4 bolt holes to match the TTR forks, also you will need to trim the back of the fender so that it does not hit the exhaust.

    I know the rear 14" wheel will directly fit, for the front wheel you need the non L forks because of the front drum brake boss. also you will need a non hydraulic brake perch/lever.

    if you are really wanting a small wheel with new style plastic before you spend any money id recommend selling the current one and spending the money on a 2008+ small wheel it will be cheaper in the end.

    thank you so much. ive been searching the web for days and trying to figure out through pictures what works and don't work and nobody could give me solid answers. so from what I gather the 08 and up frame is basically the same. is that correct?

    I was able to lower the suspension enough by moving the forks up to the bars and taking some tension off the rear shock. with a little growing over the winter we wont need a small wheel conversion.

    Frame is the same some variances with electric start and non electric start frames but that's about it.
