    I have a 1997 Honda RS125 with a generous spares package that just isn’t getting any track time these days, so I’m looking to trade it for something that I’ll be able to use more often: an Aprilia SXV550, ideally 2008 or newer (CA emissions approved starting in 2008). Pics probably do more than words, although all of the ones I have are too high-res to post and I don’t have them edited to reduce size at the moment. PM if you’re up for a trade.

    Sorry - I didn't have the tools to get the images resized below 1MB when I was posting this originally, so here we go! Bike is located in SoCal, pretty much a standard 1997-spec bike with a few upgrades: Marvic Penta wheels, radial caliper fork lowers from a 2001, powerjet carb harness & ECU. Spares packages includes gaskets, 2 cylinders, 4 heads, most bearings & bolts and a handful of other things that I'm forgetting at the moment. Ideally, I'm just looking for to trade for an Aprilia SXV550 but I could be open to reasonable offers.

    FYI, those are actually the 2004 and newer radial spec fork lowers with radial master cylinder. It also has a newer spec tank, it has the sculpted out area for your chin bar when tucking.

    Thanks Rob - you're correct that those are from 2004 forks... My memory was elsewhere when I was writing this morning. I didn't realize that the tank was the newer spec - thanks for the info!

    :beer:
    The forks I was sure were the latest spec, as we had them on one of Tyler's bikes. The tank is newer than what we had on his last bike, which was a 96 or 97, so I'm presuming it is also 04 and later.

    Good Luck with your trade or sale.

    They didn't run the power jet until 98 as best I am aware. The body work also looks to be 04 as well. I might be wrong. Beautiful bike though

    Yep, the powerjet stuff was brought from a newer bike ('99 or '00, if I remember correctly) and now that you mention it, I believe the bodywork, airbox and radiator are A-kit parts with the side-entry air scoop. Thanks for catching that!

    Yes you are correct. Do you know if that actually runs an A kit ecu.

    No, it's not an A-kit ECU; it's a standard '99 or '00 part. I can pull the exact part number to confirm which ECU when I get home.
