Hi, I'm building a sumo Honda CR125R for squidding around and hitting the local kart track and have a few questions...

I'm getting the starter kit from epic motosports and don't know what gear size to get and if I would need to change the front sprocket also in the process.

also I would like to get a pro taper bar but really don't know which bend to get, I dont like tall handlebars but dont know how do they differ from the stock one.

Thanks in advance!

dont buy any gearing until you get a chance to ride the track! once you know what you want for a given track (longer or shorter gears) you can get it geared correctly.

you lean a SM bike over so far that higher rise bars allow for more leg clearance. If you are short then you can get away with lower bars.

it all depends on what you like! I don't like much sweep in my bars I run the ricky carmichael pro tapers on all my dirt bikes. I am short 5'7" (about the same size as the GOAT) so I use pretty low bend bars with out problems even with the foot peg dragging and the bar end less than a foot off the deck!
