    Hi,
    I thought I'd bought a Honda XLR125 but as it turns out I'm 99% sure it has a Chinese motor. Anyway the splines on the kickstart lever have gone ( the shaft's are OK). How may I identify the motor to search for a replacement? Unfortunately, the motor's ID numbers have been ground away by some previous (villain?) owner.
    Thanks

    Any pic? Chinese engine is easy to spot
    Good old XLR125 (not the later XR125L) definitely assembled in Brazil. stock Engine = that era's CG *ie. Kick ONLY* As http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=550849988703

    Hi
    Thanks for response. I'll post a couple of side on shots. FYI it's an electric start model but it's not working , hence my interest in retaining / fixing the manual starting option.

    Engine model & s/n can't be found: 1. CBT rider unfriendly (ie. >125cc) 2. Stolen (& recovers) 3.Doesn't exists from day 1 (chinese engine maker often sold blanks to bike assembler & let them stamped as theirs)
