well I been changing dead on the end of hitting the white mark before hitting red

most bikes of 125 can hit 75mph without hitting hardly the redline but maybe that's because they skinny wheels and frame

but I do after say its better then the skinny tyres and maybe reason it abit slower since its got bigger tyres and bigger frame then cbr

Unless I was overtaking in hell of a rush, I'd be changing gear at a fraction of those revs!!  I've never ridden the 125.....does it even rev to 11000rpm??

You do know you can change at any point? The more you head towards redline the more engine stress and wear your just creating unnecessarily.

most bikes of 125 can hit 75mph without hitting hardly the redline but maybe that's because they skinny wheels and frame

I call BS on the 125 75mph. Certainly without modifications. Even then, your most definitely hitting the point of no return. It's more to do with weight than skinny wheels. They are all at a 11kW restriction.

but I do after say its better then the skinny tyres and maybe reason it abit slower since its got bigger tyres and bigger frame then cbr

Sounds like your still hungover not getting that Honda. You bought a heavy cheap 125, if you want speed and high revs... you want a lightweight two stroke.

About as safe as riding you bike wearing thongs , boardies and singlet .
Probably be OK for a bit ,  but it WILL eventually end it tears .
How long have you been riding a bike for  ::)

Meh, I bounce it off the rev limiter and change gears at redline all the time.
