You didn't say for sure what year your 125 is. If it is an older bike '85, the tank has a single bolt at the back. Remove the bolt and shove the tank to the rear of the bike about 2 inches to clear the rubber mounts, then lift upward. See diagram. I haven't worked on any newer 125s but if the picture in the posting is what you have, the seat will probably need to be removed to get to any mounting bolts for the tank.
