    A lot of sites are out there dude. But don't ya think learning to ride it safely without getting killed should be the first order of business? Nice bike btw. But please stay safe on it.

    thanks man .... really appreciate your post.. :p but would you know any links to those sites?? if so ill be really glad as i need to learn how to maintain my bike.. i can ride it and i have reached 80 once on it so far.. but then again i have heard that u need to mantain a slow speed for the first 500-1000k's .... don't knw if that is a myth or not..

    thanks for your concern.. ill do my best to stay and ride it safely as possible... i don't usually go bonkers while riding a bike but even if i do i try to be as caution as possible.. but i think my methods are still wrong and i don't knw how it feels till i actually crash for the first time.. ill try to be more safer thn what i am.. :D :D

    First of all as nvlddmkm said.. Learn to ride if you wanna stay alive.. And drive as if others on the road don't know to drive safely..

    Next of all there's alot of things you can do with it..

    In the first place I'd remove the limiter (or whatever it's called).. On older models it's just a sort of plate in the exhaust which limits the amount of exhaust gases that can pass thru it.. Since your bike is a newer model, it might be electronicaly aswell, so it might be safer to bring it to a specialist who knows how to handle this stuff..

    Other things are a bit more expensive..
    Change the whole exhaust to a racing one.. It'll get alot louder, but you might gain some hp..
    You probably could also change the cylinder and piston.
    etc.. etc..

    But anyways, as sugested.. Learn to ride it as it is.. When you know what you're doing, sell it and get a 650cc or something more powerfull..

    4-stroke engine, blergh :p

    My 125 CC had a 2-stroke engine, simple exhaust pipe switch boosted top speed by 30 km/h and acceleration a lot.

    But yea, if you've never ridden a motorcycle before, try to take it easy. I've driven motorcycles since I was three years old (my dad likes enduro >_>)

    That's not a bike that you should mod.

    Ride it, get comfortable, pick up some skills, save up, sell it, buy a crotch rocket.

    Now if you want to mod a crotch rocket, you just need an 'exhaust' and a 'power commander'.

    ^Pretty much. You'll get a few extra HP with an ignition kit, a performance air filter and a performance exhaust. Easy stuff to do, just snaps right on. :p

    Not sure of how easy it would be to come by for a "commuter". Good air filter shouldn't be too hard to source.

    Give yourself a year of riding, get to the point where you can fully control that bike in any road conditions... then look into either modding it or getting a "bigger" bike.

    *I like the look of those Hondas.... half wish I owned that myself :D

    You're not going to be going fast on that...a 125 >_>

    As most have said, get experience first. Do you have to be licensed to ride a bike in your country? I learnt a hell of a lot from having to get a license to legally ride on the roads. All those safety tips.

    Ride in the tracks the cars have made on the road, not on the oil line (when it rains it'll get slippery).
    Be aware of what's around you. Look at roads that are coming onto the road you're riding on so you can pre-empt any cars (or bikes) pulling out in front of you.
    Learn how to brake in an emergency. You don't want to be locking up the rear wheel and sliding around.

    Speaking of rear tyres, you could get a larger cog for the rear wheel and this will help you hold highway speeds at lower RPM. Acceleration will be worse, though.
