Lexmoto LXR SE 2019 Stock Tires PSI?

The tyre pressures are different between the front and rear. Rears are higher to cope with the weight of the engine and rider. Front tyres are normally around 25 to 29 psi. The rear tyres are usually between 28 and 32 psi. Start at the lower setting and adjust upwards 2 to 4 psi each time. Think about the riders weight and riding style when you are setting these pressures. Higher pressures for heavier riders as well as for riders with a more aggressive style.

My 2012 Honda CBR125R has no spark (fixed but new problem)

Your English is fine. So your original engine was fuel injected. You bought a used engine that had a carburetor. You swapped the head and cards for your original injected head? I don't think that is going to work. A fuel injected engine relies on sensors in the lower and upper part of the engine to supply information to the injection computer for what to do next. The most critical one is the crankshaft position sensor which tells the computer where the piston is.

2002 Hyosung GV250 issues..

Sounds like catastrophic engine failure to me. Normally anything metallic that drops into the oil drain in a good indication that something in broken in the engine. Good luck.

My bike back fires an blows flames out the carbs i have oil an neutral an wont crank?

Aha, a MYSTERY' Bike. Take out the things that are not relevant. Oil, nothing to do with it. Being in Neutral, nothing to do with it. Won't crank? Kick start, bump start. Cranking means 'turning over', nothing else. If it won't turn over it is siezed, but then you would get no flames. You are cranking but not firing except you are, you are getting flames. So let's say it won't start and run :>) Bad ignition timing Dirty carburetor Badly adjusted valves or stuck valves. Unless your MYSTERY bike is a 2 stroke.... NO valves, broken reed valves perhaps. Bottom line year make model in ALL questions

10 HP engine has red hot exhaust.

The carb is running too lean and this causes overheating of the exhaust manifold. You need to adjust the carb.
