Still want to use on road.
Any advice on suitable mods.

Get a different bike. But if you decide you really want to then I hope you have other bikes to ride when you are mending this one.
If you don't, then if you rely on your bike for transport don't do it.


Remove mirrors. Remove indicators, remove passenger pegs, remove front mudguard try and replace with a cheapo generic dirt one if you can, change tyres, keep them safe hopefully you can put them back on later.

carry spare brake and clutch lever or/and fit bark busters, see if you can get a folding gear lever to fit

Forks won't have much suspension so take it easy on bumps.

Avoid sticky mud, you will knacker your clutch.

Put a bit of rope or something to act as a hual loop front and back.

Mud and wet stuff will be a problem, will foul your front mud guard and your tyres won't cope if left as standard


Here we have two Hondas, my trail bike and my friends CBF125 I had to go and dig him out with two garden trowels...

Thanks for sensible reply to a pretty dumb question. Yes that is a ybr125. Another bike then for sure.

well, if I had a free one, I'd green lane it

(then I'd break it, then I'd throw it away, or sell it to Paddy for 1p, which is the same thing)
