Excellent Product

I bought this for a 2003 kx125 and man did it bring it back to life plus some. My 2003 can keep up with modern 125’s with this kit.

Stock Cylinder bore

Purchased a stock bore Athena replacement cylinder. Would've been nice to know they intentionally spin the stud bold holes 180 degrees so you have to buy their cylinder head. Next time I'll just spend the extra money and buy an OEM jug. Not worth the hassle of going aftermarket.

Top End Kit

Bought this kit for my YZ125 that I had blown up. It was super easy to install and got me back into the season without missing a race and the bike seemed to have a little more power also.

A: You are running the correct plug for that application. I would suggest contacting Athena to discuss a possible manufacturer's warranty issue.
