I have never owned a Cr but have ridden one. Compared to my kx it handles the same and everything but my kx has alot more bottom end. You have to clutch the Cr alot more but it handled good. Hope ya like it!

Ya I picked it up, I like it how it rides, It has a fmf gold series pipe and powercore2 silencer (neighbors dont like it to much lol), boyesen reeds, new tires and pro taper bars, and got a pair of boots with the bike. I havent got to ride it much, been to cold but will be able to ride it a lil now it warmin up a lil. Im hopin to black the bike out, get some different #'s and put some graphics on it. I think im gonna order a gripper seat cover for it to. IDK yet wat im gonna do, throw in some thoughts on wat i should do. Here is a pic of the bike the first day i got it.

Hondas are a good bike all around. Their 125s were down on power certain years compared to the others in the class, but the cr's handeling is good. Overall a good bike. Honda has always made everything very well rounded and functional, goes for dirt, street, and quad.

+1 there. Honda has made a lot of well rounded machines in almost every form of recreation vehicles and cars as well. Super reliable, dependable, and long living machines.

^^^ take it easy dude! go for it, I had 98 CR125 for short time ( bought it brand new as a leftover in spring and got free $699 craftsman toolbox as a promo deal ) I love the way bike handled , excellent arm pulling 1-4 gears and then it flat out at top pretty quickly, I miss that bike for sure! run 32:1 oil mix ratio either AMSOIL ( dominator would suit this very well ) or honda HPV 2 stroke ( gold color verison )

See the seat on this bike? It's a gripper on top and some sort of stiff plastic/vinyl on the sides. Don't get one of those, they absolutely suck. get a full gripper seat and your arse will thank you.

People are gonna tell you how the 98 cr 125 was lacing in power, from what they read im magazines. In reality no one short of a pro rider will even notice. I have a 99 cr 250r, amazingly reliable for a bike that has a recommend rebuild interval of 9 hours. Rode my bike for years before i decided to do a top end, when i took it apart the rings where only slightly worn, cylinder and piston where still mint.

My suggestion, keep all bearing, wheel, head, and especially swingarm/linkage bearings well greased. When they dry out and rust you linkage and swingarm get super sloppy and they arnt cheap to replace. My swingarm+linkage bearings cost me more than my top end.
