Put the stock side cover back on, lines perfectly match the new seat.

Also replaced my levers(clutch was sloppy) with some I found for $8

Quality isn't the best, but well worth the price.

Brake fit perfect, but I did have to file the clutch lever to fit in the perch. Shaved about 4mm of thickness and about 5mm to be able to line up the pivot holes.

Looks good.   
The original clutch lever can be adjusted with the pivot nut/bolt to remove sloppiness .
 I've removed/cleaned/greased and reinstalled my lever and it works like a rifle bolt in smoothness and fit.

The bike got dropped by the previous owner, even with the new lever there's still up and down play. Only fix left is to replace the perch.

Speaking of clutch play, for got I had to cut part of the cable mount off. With the new lever position, I couldn't get one of the adjustment nuts back on. So I made room.

New front fender from amazon for a Honda CG125.


Cleaned up the wiring under the seat, just enough room to swap to a lithium battery.


Ordered new turn signals and tail lights for the fender delete.

Turn signals will use the holes on the fender mount tabs. Brake lights will mount to seat mounting brackets. Just need to fab a license plate bracket.

Thank you. Taking your advice on the front forks, found a shop nearby that will machine 1.63" off. They'll stick out the top the same height as the steering stem and lower the front 1". Then clip ons will get mounted beneath top triple, new mounts for headlight and new turn signals.

Also, going to have to do something about the rear shocks. With the new fender delete, I'll have less room for the swingarm to travel. Temped to buy some cheap piggypacks since I'll need to rebuild shocks either way.

With all these suspension changes making the bike handle tight, there's no way I'll be going 70mph haha So I'm thinking about switching back to the 16T sprocket.

Mounted brake lights, just waiting for the indicators.

Tore apart the front end.
Rebuilding/shortening forks, cutting springs, adding bushings and heavier oil.
New headlight bracket.
Lowered gauges to sit flush.
Moved clip ons under top triple. Had to flip left/right and drill new holes in them to get position bolts to fit better.

Short forks! Tightened up the handling, feels more like a sport bike now. The lowered clip-ons make for a comfortable tuck.

Made a functional mock license plate mount out of some spare aluminum flat bar. Eventually it will be upgraded with a thicker steel version.

Turn signals! Pretty happy with how the rear end turned out.

I especially like the way the lines of the new seat work in relationship with the tank.
It gives the bike a nice look!
