I always heard that the 04 was the least desired of the 02-07 125's. Something with its electronic powervalve made it a little lack luster.
If I can offer you a little advice. Anyone that has "heard" or "read" about which bike is good or not, take their opinion with a grain of salt. I would, more so, value the opinion of someone who has actual experience and seat time with a certain bike. We can all read what someone else said they read or heard. If we all had the same bike (year & model), I bet most of us would each have something different to say about it.

thanks for the help guys, think i'm more interested in the 02+ models though. can always go with an athena big bore kit for more power!!!
Well, now that you have qualified your statement a bit, I might have a semi educated opinion. You can take this for what it is worth (see kcdavis post), but IMO, get the 05-07 unless you can't afford it. First thing, the 02-07 bikes basicly all have the same frame, the newer models will have more updated suspension. Some of the earlier of those years had a thin exhaust bridge and you could not put as big of a big bore kit on them due to it. the 05-07 years will allow for a 144cc big bore kit and since everyone's complaint about the 125 is lack of low end power, the best way to solve that is with the biggest big bore kit you can put on it. Anyway, just my opinion.

i have a 03, but the 05-07 has a few updates. i also had a 92 and an 01... the 92 was awesome, the 01 was a turd. i go 05/07 if poss.
Correct me if i'm wrong, but 04 was pretty much the same as 05-07. A couple of minor changes, but no reason to avoid the 04.

The 2001 CR125 had the last good engine.
And the last POS frame...
