post approval: yeah, it's gonna be a bit; maybe one of our 2 mods will see you here. otherwise: patience. good call on the bike. don't worry too much about your height- lotsa of pro-mx'ers are your height. get a lowering kit if you really think you need it; otoh- almost all dirt bikes are that high. low end: probably the biggest complaints of 125s. learn to use the clutch when you're between gear ratios (feathering). keep the rpm's up above 4-5000 when climbing. Many people think your bike (sometimes with the addition of a 165 kit) is the best woods bike made. welcome.
