in summer was fine on mine without one, but winter time i would recomend u get one or the blade gets stuck alot. cant see a problem with tape tbh as its only to stop moisture from going in the housingDoes it matter if I use gaffa tape for the power valve sleeve (part 10 on this exploded diagram)? My bike only needs the power valve and it could save me £30.
hello mate mine is a 2011 aswel which is now full power, u dont need a rave unit for these models if its the new shape....u need a solenoid, cable, housing and blade on the new bikes the rave to control the solenoid is built into the cdi. with the arrow exhaust and powervalve i hope u understand the carb will need to be re jetted aswel and the snorkals on the airbox unblocked as one is blocked up when its not full powerI realize this post is old, but i want to derestrict my 2011 model rs125, and i have bought an arrow exhaust, i'm going derestrict the CDI unit, but i've been looking to find the powervalves and rave unit, but its impossible to find a rave unit that is for my year because they all seem to be 1999-2005 or earlier, will these rave units fit? Does the 2011 model need one for the powervalve to work?
