Re: started and then died
The engine quit and the bike will not restart. No lights come on either. I believe I smelled a little burn odor just before the bike died. It was washed and dried yesterday but not started until this morning. Any ideas on what it might be?Sounds like some electrical troubleshooting is in order. Check all the fuses and connections for signs of frying if you smelled burning electrical components. Check your battery voltage and connections. and anything else you can see while poking around. This may involve touching parts of the bike that are not on the handlebars,

sounds to me like the gas cap vent, or tank vent may be clogged. as the fuel level goes down in the tank it needs to vent properly in order to prevent a vaccum in the tank, resulting it to starve for fuel.
I would suggest a 250 2-stroke or a 4-stroke. Lots of power, lots of pull and the motor would likely last you for years. I've raced both the 125 and the 250 2-stroke at the pro-am level (A-class) and the difference in engine life is tremendous. I would re-ring a 125 every week (running 26:1), while with a 250 I could go for 2-3 months or more without doing the top end while running 32:1.
A YZ 125 will definately be a bit of maintenance - primarily because it has a single ring and the ring doesn't last long. A pro or semi-pro racer would re-ring every race (when the 2-stroke was popular) - some races I would re-ring in between motos. I know you won't be racing, but I would still imagine you would want to freshen up the top end at least every other month at the most. Granted - you can re-ring a 125 in about 45 minutes for a cost of about $18 if you know how and it costs a LOT more for a 4-stroke and is more of a job.
Other than the ring, the rest of the maintenance will be about the same between a 2-stroke and a 4-stroke. You'll still have to do your air filter every ride and your engine oil (tranny oil in a 2-stroke) every other ride. Tires, spokes, sprockets, clutches, chains, brakes - all pretty equal maintenance between the two. Lots of variables, of course.
The difference will be keeping the motor fresh and for that, the 4-stroke will beat the 125 2-stroke. Not the 250 2-stroke, though - these motors last as long or longer than the 4-stroke and are a LOT cheaper to maintain/rebuild.
This is MY experience and my opinion. Your mileage may vary.
Hi, Andyoupe2006 for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix or parts inquiry. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue.

sounds like the bike is in need of new piston rings especially if that much oil is blowing on such a newer bike. if the crankcase is not overfilled, then focus on rings especially if the sparkplug is oily too.
Check the piston to cylinder clearance.You very well could have wore either the piston and/or the cylinder. Also check the rod for up/down play.Running out of oil could have ruined any bearing in the motor.
