Tell us what type of riding you do and your skill level and we could recommend much more stuff for you.

The thing with 125's is that you have to ride near perfect to ride fast. You have to try your best to make few mistakes because the power isnt there to save you when in trouble. So, that being said, practice practice and practice..
And what NY said. Pipe, Jetting, SUSPENSION!!

You may want to change up your suspension a little, can run hard if you cant hang on...remember, speed from the bike isnt your problem, unless your like pro, the bike has plenty for ya. You would probobly do fine with some vforce reeds, a pipe and silencer, and maby some porting....You can bore it also, but I recomend that after youve done the other stuff, so that way if you feel you are fine with the pipe and reeds, you dont have to spend the extra few hundred bucks.

Well dont get any reeds that's for sure. Those would never make you as fast as riding skills.
There's hope for you yet young grasshopper!

Since LostTrail recommended a pipe, maybe he knows the jetting to go along with the new pipe.
The truth is that most pipes make less power where you ride the most, in the mid range. Dynoport makes good trail or midrange pipes.

Suspension first. You can't hammer it when it will kick you out of the saddle jumping like a Jumping Jack.
FMF SST after that.
FMF SST is a bad pipe it tricks the bike into thinking it's leaner which makes it run better but it raises piston crown temps which is definetely not good

Dynoport makes good trail or midrange pipes.
Does Dynoport make pipes for newer two strokes? I was on there website and the newest yz125 listed was an 02.
