Hello all, I am currently looking for a cbr 150 in the uk, i intend on swapping it into my cbr 125.
i would like to source one from the uk but if i need to import it from abroad i guess im gonna have to bite the bullet,
Im well aware that i will have to change my carb and cdi but i think thats it???
Any help or infomation is greatly appreciated.

would it not be cheaper to source a150 barrel piston and head rather than a whole engine. try honda dealers and ebay.

Rare as rocking horse doo doo they are!

Just get a malossi bbk and have the stock carb properly set up, much cheaper.

Why do you want a 150 engine? The head and barrel/piston with cams rockers etc etc is roughly £500 not including postage and customs charges. I might be able to source you one I'll check through my contacts list later.

WOW thank you for the speedy reply's really appreciated


To cut a long story short i ran my bike to work without any coolant in it and i melted the piston as a result.
I am now struggling to remove my piston i have the retaining clips removed but the pin that holds the piston to the con rod doesn't seem to be coming out. There is about 2-3mm play but as the piston has deformed due to the high heat it it doesn't seem to be coming out. I cant afford to take it to a mechanic at the moment this isn't really an option, and tackling the bottom end is something i havn't done before so not to sure about going in deep. If i can get the piston released would it be as simple as replacing the barrel piston and carb ? thank you again for all your help.

Would be easier to just replace with another 125 engine surely?

well it seemed that there wasn't too much more damage to the rest of the engine and i figured i could save some cash by just replacing the piston and rings and honing the barrel, or maybe putting a 150 top end on. as i don't seem to be able to release the piston from the con rod i was gonna buy a 150 engine for now and put the original engine into storage till i can afford to get it fixed, i figured a 150 engine because i'm bored of the bike and will more than likely be riding it for another year or there abouts. i also hadn't considered the price of the 150 engines.
thank you again.

You cant afford a mechanic but you CAN afford a complete new engine?

I have a cbr 150 engine and a 166 tunned original 125 engine. How much do you want to spend?
