Re: I have a suzuki 125 that needs to be lowered.
You can't do much to lower the bike. The expense involved to lower the bike would be about the same as buying a used, smaller bike. If he is close to tall enough you may be able to take the seat and have it made narrower, that will make it a bit easier to reach the ground. If you have your heart set on lowering this bike, look for either a shorter rear shock absorber or a lowering link.

The VIN listed has only 16 digits. There should be 17 digits. Recheck the numbers then go to the following website to decode the VIN. Then you will know exactly what bike you have. Please rate my answer. Thanks. http://www.motoverse.com/tools/vin/suzuki.asp
Check that the kill switch is connected to the ignition & is working OK
There may be a carbon deposit on the head which is glowing red hot thereby igniting the fuel like a diesel (without a spark)
The other possibility is dieseling by over compression (at 14:1 compression petrol self ignites) but that is not very likely
carburetor cold be out of adjustment. dirty or incorrect spark plug gap...make sure you're getting a big bluish spark, not a reddish purple. it could also be a vacuum leak or clogged fuel filter...check and clean your air filter too! hope this helps!
I assume you dumped out the half pint of old gas and rinsed out the tank. Get a new spark plug and clean the air filter. Remove the carb and dis-assemble it then soak the parts in denatured alcohol for 30 minutes. Do not soak the rubber diaphragm. Finish the cleaning with a can of spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Be sure all internal fuel and air circuits are clear and that the diaphragm is not torn or has pin holes. The top cap must have a good seal. Go to www.babbittsonline.com/parts/viewbybrand/parts.aspx to see a diagram of the carb and the rest of the bike. It looks like they have lots of parts for your bike.
Yes, forks can be swapped in some cases. First, the diameter of the replacement forks must be the same as the old forks. The length of the forks will need to be close to the original also. Often the entire wheel and brake assembly must change also because the brake hub from a Honda will not fit Suzuki forks. The speedometer may also be a factor because the old cable may not fit the new hub.
Try a salvage yard. Google " motorcycle salvage suzuki " and see what you can find/
