Indicator sidelight mod. Saves weight, battery power and causes less drag :p

Led valve caps. £1-£10 more chavvy fun!

What are some good aftermarket mirrors? I understand there aren't many that fit the angle of the fairing on the R125?

Gp avitars, or you could do what I'm doing and get a thread adaptor so you can fit any handlebar mirrors in there

As said by Gweglez, the GP Avitar mirrors are the best. Not easy to find, and they tend to be pricey however...

Better tyres. Rim tape. Tyre Pen. Remove pillion pegs. Get rid of L plates (ultimate mod). Tail tidy. After-market exhaust.

If you would like any more advice, start a blog and ask away in there!

read somwhere that it might be possible to somehow get an r1 tailpipe on a r125 fact or fiction ?
Very possible, would need an awful lot of work though!
Custom work that is; it won't go on as standard.
