I would agree....ditch the RM and ride the 125. You may find that you will end up ringing the guts off the 125 to keep up with the lads but the 2T will be fun. I am rebuilding all the time and I personally would not buy anything earlier than 2000. You would want to have a spare 800 in the pocket for a rebuild just incase.
If it has low hours on a top and bottom end rebuild then it might be a good deal but if the seller cannot tell you the engine history then have some spare cash available.

And you only weight a buck fifty so a 125 is gonna be a blast.
The big deal in AZ is they want you to title and register anything w/ a motor,unless it a track(I dont ride track),so bikes w/o a title are cheap.
I was gonna get a smoker to ride instead of a pitbike,but my buddys done for the summer and when he and his kid start riding again its gonna be like teaching the kid allover.
I like keeping the motor stock,but I think the big bore kit is 151cc's.That would rip.

If you get good with the clutch and your buddies are half decent to pretty good riders, you'l kill them on a 125 in the trails because they are so light and nimble with a suprising amount of jump in em. If you maintain right you can get 90 hrs easy on a top end trail riding. Make sure you do your air filters and warm it up right and you should be good to go. You'll notice loss of power and it'll make a smacking noise in the engine called "piston slack". That's about time to get a new one in there.

here's the YZ
And the CR
The ad for the CR says 95, but he gave me the vin and it came up as a 96

To restate what others have said. At 150 a 125 is plenty. I am 200lbs without gear and I rode a 125 for a several years and never was at a loss for power. I was only trail riding in mostly sandy stuff. I'd probably still be riding a 125 if I hadn't jumped ship to a 4 stroke.
