127cc, YX127CF, Roketa MC-05-127, XR-12 Chinese sportbike repair review and test ride China scooter

Under a few different few names, but basically the same bike, the 127cc bike. (roketa MC-05-127 STREET WARRIOR, Fleetwood Series XR-12 , Yinxiang YX 127-CF, ) I just picked up this bike for $300 because it was not running right, would stall after a minute or so, turns out it was a factory vent tube that was never open, so the gas tank would vapor lock and the carb would get no fuel obviously.

It’s not a bad bike, typical China build with brittle plastics and mediocre welds, but it looks cool and it’s inexpensive! Runs great with the 127cc HONDA copy of an engine. A 4 speed automatic clutch transmission, I don not like the shift pattern being backwards from a std motorcycle. It has a circular shifter too, so it will go from 4th to N and first (when you are not moving) which is kind of cool I guess. I topped it out at 65 mph, Matt said he hit 72 mph… so it is pretty fast for a 127cc bike.
Here are specs I found online, not sure how accurate they are:
127cc 2-valve highly fuel-efficient 4 cycle
engine type 154FMI
7.24 hp @ 7500RPM
bike weight 224 lbs.
330 lbs carry capacity
Up to 70 mpg
4 speed semi-auto transmission
Electric and kick start

Pros:
Inexpensive, economical, low seat height, auto clutch, good learning bike
Cons:
Push shift lever down to up-shift, 60mph max speed, China made quality, Body plastics brittle, no clutch, 4 speed

  1. You should make a video that includes more of you cat! Maybe, make a video of your cat going on a ride together???

  2. Thats a nice looking bike, here in my country there are lots of those, are called the "semi sport bike for women" i think the design is based on the Kawasaki fury 125

    Worst quality control I’ve ever seen.

  4. GOD OVER MONEY May 17, 2021 @ 1:36 am

    Absolute junk. I know a guy who has one. He cannot get parts it is broken down. Might as well throw it in the dump!!!

  5. Spencer Smith May 17, 2021 @ 1:38 am

    Some day…… someday they will tell legends of the Chinese moto diy master cheese. You are literally Chinese motorcycle Jesus!

  6. Gathney Brandon May 17, 2021 @ 1:38 am

    i think I am going to get one just to get around while the big bike gets fixed

  7. With the linkage on the shifter, you could flip the part connected to the selector shaft over and have the gears the right way around.

  8. I want in summer to make tour of Romania with a bike like this, 4000 km, you think the engine will be ok? My bike have already 5000 km , and run ok. Thank you.

  9. I saw the headline and said, “Oh cool!” You have some great roads to ride.

  10. GOD OVER MONEY May 17, 2021 @ 1:48 am

    Wait till you need parts!!
    Then what?

  11. EL MEJD ZOHAIR May 17, 2021 @ 1:48 am

    Do not put all your trust in the brakes

  12. Tony Kart Racer May 17, 2021 @ 1:53 am

    Yo, SON! You ain’t know bout the GP Shift pattern? You iz no racer! Looks like a fun little bike though.

  13. Ya know if ya just needed a cheap set of wheels like some college kid around campus this would not be a bad alternative for a bike. It looks like it would be fun to ride for a person that was just starting to get into bikes. And that Chinese copy of motor has proven to be a pretty reliable machine.

    congrats on the score my friend

  15. Mohammad Eri Hardianto May 17, 2021 @ 1:55 am

    That’s same design with honda cs1 for south east asia, but the engine is totally different.

  16. that lifan is not 4 valves

  17. 1:09 digital gas gauge with a "MEOW SOUND"🤣😺😸😹

  18. I concur. I own a 2011 version of one of these in blue. It was sold as a Roketa but from the decals, to the build plate, to the engine side cover, it clearly is a Yinxiang. I really like this little machine. It is also quite the conversation piece wherever I go. However, there were two things I didn’t like about the machine. First, I had wished that I could get a few more miles per hour out of it for more comfortable highway cruising. So, after reading numerous forums, I decided that I would move up to a smaller sprocket for a higher top end. Thanks to the world of the Internet, I was able to locate parts through AB Moto in Riga, Latvia. Also got a few extra electrical components and body plastics for future replacements. However, the one thing that I don’t like about this bike and I still need to figure out is how to give it a more comfortable seat. It really is the bikes only limiting factor in my book. My back side gets pretty sore even after a short half hour ride. Other than that, I would highly recommend one of these to anybody who is looking for a unique, very reasonable, economical, fun bike.

  19. I want a dam DRZ400

  20. Richard Tschida May 17, 2021 @ 1:59 am

    That front wheel comes down hard on the scoot. That person you bought that from gonna be happy!😭…… If you are going to buy Chinese you better have a tool collection and know how to use them.

  21. Do you still have this bike,and would it benefit from a larger carburetor

  22. The Flaming Boss May 17, 2021 @ 2:01 am

    I need a new carburetor but I can’t find it anywhere for the same bike where should I look?

  23. This is like a Made for Honda cs1

  24. That little bike would be better than nothing if you or anybody had to get around in the big city… be alot better than peddle power if it proves to be dependable. And probably 100+ mpg.

  25. How does the power compare to the hawk or brozz

  26. JO_sqrl Music May 17, 2021 @ 2:09 am

    LOL the mirrors are uneven

  27. Charles Howard May 17, 2021 @ 2:11 am

    Dam dude you get some deals lol, I would give 300 bucks for it ,be a great pit bike

  28. Is that motor based off the old honda 185s?

  29. cool, looks like you got a bargain

  30. The Real Drunkard Hu May 17, 2021 @ 2:19 am

    … Just use a speedometer app, silly. 😀

  31. EL MEJD ZOHAIR May 17, 2021 @ 2:20 am

    This is the bike number one in Morocco you can buy it only for 1000$ brand new or used in good condition for 500$

  32. That’s pretty fast carying a load of cheese.😀

  33. amine jelassi May 17, 2021 @ 2:25 am
