Klx 125 burns oil bad. replaced rings, then piston & rings, measured bore roundness(true to .0005), replace valve guides & seals.......??? have a 28th step to try????? @
Hi, Dkag excessive oil consumption is usually caused by a worn out engine with lots of mileage, new engines can also have excessive oil consumption due to improper break-in procedures or faulty parts. The general rule of thumb is anything more than 1 quart of oil consumed in 1,000 miles or 1 liter in 1,500 kilometers means it's time for a top end overhaul. The usual suspects are:
1. Piston rings not properly seated (new engines)
2. Piston rings worn past service limits.
3. Damaged cylinder wall or piston.
4. Valves and guides worn past service limits.
5. Valve seals worn out, crushed or no longer attached.
6. Cracked cylinder head.
7. Head gasket failure.
8. Pinched or blocked crankcase breather hose.

SOURCE: Can I bore My 2001 yz 125?
It would be best to take it into a shop and have the machinist check it out before buying any parts, he should be able to guesstimate the amount of over bore required if it is at all possible, once you have this information, you can source the nessessary parts.
some of these type of parts are non returnable, best to play it safe.
hope this is of some help.

yea, for most bikes they only come in .020 increments now. if your looking to freshen up the top end, then youll have to go to a 56.00mm piston. there will be almost no change in displacement or jetting from 55 to 56mm. if your replacing the piston, its best to have your cylinder bored anyways. since the worn cylinder walls may have adverse effects on the new piston rings, and they may wear a bit prematurely. a bore only costs about 30-40 bucks most places, and its cheap insurance. plus you will have the peace of mind knowing that your bore is matched specifically for your piston. I would definitely recommend a fresh bore.
