General Comments
Bought the Jinlun 125 - 11 bike about this time last year from Scootex for £1195 all in, the bike was fine but running it in was a pain as I use it for work and it's 21 miles each way. But that soon passed and when it went for its first service they changed the jets for Honda 1mm type that did the trick it then went a lot better with a top speed of 70-75mph wind dependant, and more power to pull off the motor also seemed that bit smoother like it can breathe better. I have covered over 6,000 miles now and the bike has never missed a beet, my wife is using it to learn on and she loves it, so I will probably be buying a new one soon, also the bike has been ridden in all weather and it has faired very well with only an odd spot of rust on the under side, the exhausts have remained rust free and shiny which surprised me as the last bike the Suzuki Marauder rusted terribly in the same time and mileage.

We would recommend the JL125-11 to anyone young old big or small it's a great bike

good review any chance you can find out information on the jet they fitted into your bike i.e. part number or from what bike or carbs they were this might help a load junlin riders out as it seems were all struggling with power pulling off. cheers andy.

I had a word with big Phil at scootex about the jets and any other tune up parts, and he has got a load of the jets in stock and he will sell them for £7.00 a set + p+p and vat, he also said he would be happy to be involved in setting up the owners club.
I also spoke to the guys in the work shop and there is a real possibility that the 150cc barrel will fit straight on to the 125 engine. They have ordered some to try and will know for sure in a week or two.

Hi people, myself and a couple of other reviewee`s are looking to establish a Jinlun owners club. Any interested parties, please leave a note here with any ideas or suggestions on how we go about starting it up. The JL125-11 is the most underated and overlooked learner cruiser ever, also any info on power ups for the wheezy performance would be very appreciated! All the best from Steve.
