    MCM .. I miss you guys, miss riding in China and miss everything Chinese. I might be coming over for a visit next month.

    A friend of mine wants to buy a bike and learn to ride and I recommended this little Yammie as the perfect thing to zip around Beirut.

    Thing is, the local yammie dealer only has the bike with sporty headlights and thats something neither of us like. Could it be swapped out to the traditional round headlight? He's trying to go for the old style matte black or green look, and that headlight won't look too good on it. What's under that front fairing? Generic indicators and headlights could fit on there?

    I'll make sure he reads this review. Thanks.

    Hey Slabo - great to see you back!

    Agreed - narrow & light enough for lane splitting, given Beirut's traffic jams (I've heard that Leb has become even more crowded, recently).

    I don't have the bike anymore. But, from memory, when you remove the plastic sport headlight, the standard "ears" remain, which should mount the standard headlight. The signals are mounted in the same ear position on both styles (no need to modify the ears or the turn signals).

    I used to have a pdf shop manual for the YBR125, but deleted it after I sold the bike. Sorry. I found the manual online, somewhere.

    PS: Best wishes to your family, and please ask your sister to send my regards to the HCA crew, especially Leila.

    Dear Slabo,

    Great to hear from you! Any chance you'll be passing through Shanghai?

    Not sure if the YBR125ED is a special version of the Yammie you've 'mentioned, but here's a PDF shop manual for that model.

    cheers!

    Hi Jeff,

    Thanks for the linky. I had to postpone my trip again. Running a restaurant, I can't leave during december, our busiest time. I hate postponing stuff like this.

    See you soon, regards,
    Naim
