Carb, fuel and oil stuff…

Fuel system: Carburetor
Fuel type: Unleaded petrol
Engine oil: 10w40 scooter oil (API SG or higher)

Note: Although Suzuki say you can use any 10w40 motorcycle oil in the AN125, we would recommend using at least a good quality (API SL or higher) semi synthetic motorcycle oil. Unfortunately, scooters (especially air cooled, plastic covered ones!) do have a tendency to run hot (and overheat!). Better quality oils work better at higher temps, lower quality oils can break down at higher temps.

Spark plug (AN125 X – Nov 1998 to Nov 2000): NGK CR8E
Battery: AN125 battery – YTX7A-BS / CTX7A-BS

Notes:

  • Unusually, the maintenance free battery in the AN125 sits on its side in the scooter. You MUST allow 48 hours after filling and charging the battery before using it.
    This gives the acid in the battery time to be absorbed by the lead plates which means it is less likely to leak when its on its side in the scooter.
  • The YTX7-ABS battery is a 12 volt, 6 amp/hour battery and is length: 150mm width: 87mm height: 94mm in size (more info…).
  • The 1st letter(s) of the battery reference code is a manufacturers reference mark and may vary between different battery makes (different battery manufacturers use different 1st letters), so CTX7A-BS, YTX7A-BS and CBTX7A-BS are all the same battery just from different manufacturers (more info…).
  • Also…… I would personally recommend avoiding buying the cheapest of the cheap type batteries online as they have a horrendous failure rate (and they don’t always soak all the battery electrolyte up which can lead to messy leaks).
Battery location: The battery is located on the right side of the bike, just below where your right foot would be if you were riding the bike. To get to the battery remove the screw on the right side of the grey, plastic panel on the side of the bike (just below the foot board panel). Take the grey plastic panel off (being careful not to break the lugs!). Under this panel is a black plastic cover panel. Remove the 2 allen key screws from the panel (1 on each side), take the panel off and the battery is underneath.

  1. Hi guys,

    I bought a AN125 from a friend of mine with 1,800km on the clock. With the current petrol prices only travel on my scooter, Modeo and C2 stays in my garage.

    My AN125 was manufactured in China and the “new” imports are from India and selling for R12,00 in our currency, about 800 Pounds English currency as 2014 models.

    Could you help, how do one ajust the headlights?

    Thanks for all the info on your site.
    Regards,
    Johan

  2. Hi guys,

    I have a 2009 model AN 125 and it’s due an oil/filter change.
    I want to purchase your AN 125 oil and filter set but despite intense searching, I cannot locate the oil filter. Any chance you could help out by describing its location?

    Thanks a million,

    Joe

    1. If the filter is in the same place as the old AN125, it should be on the left hand side of the engine (left as your sitting on the bike), near where the stand connects to the frame (there should be a round plate covering it).

      The pic below might help you locate it (they are from a 1998 model, but might give you an idea of what your looking for?):

  3. hey all i have a 1995 model an125 i love it only prob is wen i bought it i had to replace the right braking master cylinder and now i only have one wing mirror (because the new cylinder did not have the hole for it)….
    my mot is due in april and im not sure wether to take off the other one or make a new space and replace the right one any ideas ??????????

    1. You will need a mirror on the right side for the MOT (you don’t have to have one on the left side).
      You could try either making space to fit a mirror with a handle bar clamp on the end or use a mirror that goes into the end of the handle bar.

      1. hi
        thanks for that,
        mot passed (eventually) without the right mirror,
        will try n get a handle bar mirror

        thanks again

  4. Hello!
    I am the glad owner, off a 1999 AN125. I ride it on a daily basis, but now need to replace the cylinder. I can’t find out, if my model is a 152QMI, or a 153QMI engine. I would like to order the parts, before tearin it appart. Is there any way I can find out what model it is, without tearing it appart?

    I am looking forward to any reply and help.
    Kind Regards
    Jonas

    1. The Suzuki AN125 use the same engine between 1995 and 2000, the only differences between the different years was colour changes (so the engine cylinder should be the same no matter what year?).

  5. Then, how do I found out if it is a 152qmi or a 153qmi, before tearin it appart? Is there a way to see it on the outside? On the side I linked to, there is a few differences, cam chain, etc, so I need to find out.

    1. The chassis number is stamped into the frame on the right side under where your feet sit (just behind the battery cover panel).
      I can’t see where the engine number might be on the scooter, I guess it would be stamped somewhere on the left side of the engine?

  6. me intereza saber donde se encuentra ..por donde se llena el aceite y que tapas hay que desmontar
    y donde se ve el nivel del aceite y si es BUENO HECHAR UNA TAPITA DE ACEITE EN LA GASOLINA …O NO

    1. El tapón de llenado de aceite se encuentra detrás del panel de debajo del asiento (el panel que se encuentra detrás de los pies), al lado de la culata del motor (ver foto abajo):

      Oil filling hole

      El perno de drenaje de aceite está bajo la moto, en la parte inferior del motor (ver foto abajo):

      Oil drain bolt

      No existe un nivel de aceite (creo), usted debe llenar con 850 ml de aceite de.

      Lo siento por mi mal español, yo uso Google translate! 🙂

  7. Something that should take a few minutes takes hours because of an complicated system/design that is not functional. In English can you point me into the direction of where we can top up the oil the picture doesn’t suffice. Thank you!

  8. I found only ring that I need but do not know if I’ll send her to Bulgaria and how much money it would cost delivery ..

  9. Hi there,

    Glad to find this blog, recently I bought a second hand AN125 /2009 and I have been experiencing difficulties when I try to start it, even worse when the motorbike has been parked for more than 2 days. What do you think is happening??

        1. The carb is on the top/back of the engine. You would need to remove the front under seat cover to see it:

          AN125 with panel removed

          To access and work on the carb you would need to remove the side panels.

  10. Hi, I owned a 2001 AN125. Recently I found the front left fork was leaking, wonder if I can dismantle it to change faulty parts from a repair kit and top up with fork oil? What are the important points to look out? Thanks!

  11. Hi, I’m considering a new AN 125 (still found in NZ in some bike shops) and the newer model Suzuki 125 Address. Do you guys know what the difference is between these two. The AN is a little better in the styling department in my opinion, but it might be that the Address has an advantage under all that plastic?

    Thanks.

  12. I have a Suzuki AN125 2013 model.
    I need to change the battery. I was told it was under the seat.
    Does anyone know exactly where it is located, and what it looks like.
    Thanks.

  13. Hi, my Suzuki AN 125 has really problems starting after I did not use it for more than 2 weeks, once it has been running it starts up like a dream but everytime I did not use it for a while it takes a lot of revving until it starts. (Sometimes I discharged the battery before 🙁 ) So I think there is nothing wrong with the Scooter in general but it seems to me as it needs some sort of choke or maybe I need to prime the carburator first, is there a trick to do that?

    Thank you

      1. Had exactly the same problem with my AN125 being very difficult to start when cold or if left for a while. 🙂

        It was a faulty automatic choke, managed to source a new one (didn’t bother with a 2nd hand one as is likely to be in the same condition?), starts easily now!

  14. this page ,very helpful ,taking my a1 test soon and need to know which side of the scooter is the back brake operated from ? I know it sounds silly but I’ve tried looking at wheels braking but can’t see properly ,anyway I live in hope xx H,thanks again for page .

    1. Back brake is on the left handle bar, front brake is on the right handle bar (as your sitting on the bike).

      If you look closely around the levers, the front brake is hydraulic, so it will have a little reservoir mounted by the lever, the rear brake is cable operated (so you should see the cable end attached to the lever).

  15. I have a 2009 Suzuki an125hk scooter i put Castrol Magnatec 10 w 40 oil in it said use for car petrol and diesel i thought that scooters use car oil but after reading this i realise my mistake ive only ridden it a short distance around the block after topping it up i plan to do a oil and filter change on it and use 10 w 40 motorcycle oil is this correct? is there any other steps i need to take because iv’e had the wrong oil in it?

    Also for some reason when i use the indicator it does not flash and the electric start doesn’t work the headlight seems to work fine when riding any idea where and what to start checking

  16. My AN125 has issue of suddenly loosing acceleration while running. Like no petrol flow into the engine. After few seconds it’s ok again. It happens very suddenly. I changed out the battery and it was fine for few months but happening again.
    Does the CDI ( carbeurator) faulty??

    1. Theres a device that only allows fuel to feed when there is vacuum from the engine. When they are faulty they only bleed through a tiny amount of fuel. As you burn the fuel in the fuel bowel of the carb you run out. And the device slowly feeds fuel through. It’s on the fuel line between the fuel filter and carb. Bypass it to check if it’s that. I had the same problem. Bypassed it and fixed

  17. Hi guys,
    Very glad such a site exists.
    I want to buy a brand new “an125” of the year 2016 and I wanted to know if there are any changes in this model.
    Thanx…

    1. There would be a lot of changes between the model in this post and the 2016 model (the 2016 model will be completely different).

      To get the specs of the 2016 model you could check the Suzuki website or ask your nearest Suzuki dealer for a sales booklet?

  18. Hi,
    I have to take out the carburetor of my AN 125 from 09/1997.
    No idea where to start, can somebody give me an idea about
    how to go about it? (Starting problems with cold engine as has been explained before)
    May be there is already a web-site explaining it?
    Thanks in advance!

      1. It is a 1997.
        Only with 800km on the clock , but was running well until recently.
        I have the same symptoms as the comment of 4th of may. (Pete)
        I would like to give it a try anyway.

        1. I have the same problem with the AN125 I’ve got, it’s probably the automatic choke that needs replacing.
          The auto choke is a small relay on the top/side of the carb (has a wire or 2 coming out of it).
          I don’t think the auto chokes can be cleaned or repaired, they usually get replaced.
          To get to the carb you need to remove the dark grey side panels and the front panel (the grey panel that sits under the seat, just behind your feet).

          1. Fixed the problem of the bike being very difficult to start when cold or if left for a while. 🙂

            It was a faulty automatic choke, managed to source a new one (didn’t bother with a 2nd hand one as is likely to be in the same condition?), starts easily now!

  19. I answered allready earlier, I think it didn’t get through somehow.
    I have a 1997 AN 125.
    Same problems as Pete.
    She is still in very good condition.
    Just 800 km on the clock.

    1. I’m fairly certain the engines are different.

      You could try seeing if a company called Lucas make a clutch for your bike, they did make better quality, heavy duty clutches (not sure if they do scooter clutches though?)

  20. Hi, I have a 2008 an125, she clever sod tried to steal the bike and used a screwdriver in the ignition to try and break the steering lock and take the bike, they failed but they were successful in damaging the lock. I now cannot start the bike or release the steering lock, I’m guessing I’ll need a new ignition barrel but can’t identify which one I need without removing it and haven’t been able to find instructions on how to do it – can you help?

  21. Hi white dog need your help again… ordered an oil filter but need the seal too and cant find one its a w reg any thoughts on this my friend.

    1. I don’t think any of the aftermarket oil filters come with the oil seals. The genuine Suzuki oil filter might, but you would need to check with a Suzuki main dealer.

      Alternatively, the company below look like they sell them (please note, I’ve never used the company below so can’t say if they are any good or not!):

      AN125 oil filter seals…

  22. Hi Whitedog,
    The rear shock on my AN is knackered, could you tell me what the correct measurement is for a replacement monoshock?
    Many thanks.

  23. Hi guys , 2013 an 125 4st, rear tail light replacement? what am I doing wrong, it looks like you have to dismantle half the bloody bike to get to it, cant seem to get the bulb out from the back nor can I get the whole assembly out, have removed the seat and storage area under it and can see 4 mounting screws for the tail light assembly, none of which are easy to get at, I’m lost and just a wee bit pissed off (not my bike, doing some work for a neighbor to help him out)

  24. do you no the correct timing setting for a an125 1995 just had to get a full top end for my bike but cant find info on how to set the timing now.

    1. Is there not a window or anything in the side of the engine for checking the level?
      I know on the older AN125’s the window is difficult to see, so it might be hidden behind something.

  25. Hi, and happy holidays! I have some issues with my 1997 AN125. The carburettor has been rebuilt, and everything is correctly set. It starts up very easily. Also no problem to accelerate and rev it up when the bike is on its centre stand. When driving off, it goes well up to 40-50 km/t. Then it starts to stutter, as if it can’t go faster. It also threatens to stall… Could this be a blown head gasket? Or a broken valve? I have also seen a lot of blue smoke from the exhaust, so I assume excessive oil consumption too… Better off with a New engine….? Thanks for any comment,
    Best regards
    Kay in Norway

    1. What’s the mileage on the bike?

      Blue smoke is normally oil burning, this can happen if the seals or piston rings are worn allowing oil to get into the combustion chamber to get burnt (hence the smoke).

      If it was a broken valve you would normally hear a noise from the engine (or it wouldn’t run at all).

  26. Howzit, was curious does anyone know the highest kilometers traveled with the an125 scoot? I own 4 of these wonderful little machines and haven’t an ounce of trouble. Am a domestic fridge mac and shoot all over town with them, one at a time. When one needs some work done on it, the next gets used, and the same goes when it rains or I get a callout to a farm on a gravel road, I’ll use the oldest scoot. On a good day I travel up to 200km. Also own a yamaha rs 125 and have done 31 000 km on her without as much as a hiccup. What fun, get paid to enjoy the ride.

  27. Hi Bill Mann here again. Own a 2011 an125. Idles great but under load, once in awhile sputters,loses power. Pull over, shut it off, start up no problem goes, then sputters again. Bad gas? Or something more serious?

    1. That’s a difficult one if the bike’s only doing it now and again……
      Your best bet would be to drain out the old fuel and put fresh in if you think it might be bad. You can also check all the rubber air and fuel hoses for splits, damage and to make sure there routed the correct way (so there not being squashed by anything etc)?

  28. Hi we have a Suzuki an125 scooter. Trying to change the bulb for the front headlight. Have access up by the front wheel and also by moving aside a few things at the top by still tight. How do I actually remove the bulb? Do I need to unclip or unscrew anything?

  29. I had a fall with my AN125 2019 and need to replace the two front plastic panels and head light. The parts are not available in South Africa, do you know of any reliable supplier to order from.
    Thanks

  30. HELLO THERE.. I’M FROM MALAYSIA. I GOT THIS BIKE FOR 8 YEARS AND WANNA MAKE SORT OF REPAIRMENT.. LIKE ENTIRE OF IT (LOL). BUT I CAN NOT GET ANY KIND PERFORMANCE PART EVEN FOR THE OEM PART FOR THE ENGINE.. ACTUALLY, I’M USING SOME BIG BORE AND ETC. THEN IT MAKING SOME WEIRD NOISES FROM THE ENGINE (I GUESS).. I LOVE THIS BIKE A LOT. CAN I JUST CUSTOM SOME OF THE PART USING OTHER BIKE? WHICH KIND OF BIKE OR ENGINE MODEL THAT WILL BE SUITABLE FOR THAT? I’M NOT SURE WHAT MODEL OR YEAR MY BIKE WAS. 😛

    1. You will need to know the make/model and year of the bike to buy performance parts. If it’s a 1995 to 2000 Suzuki AN125 there’s not many performance parts available as it wasn’t really the kind of bike people customize and it’s an older bike now (not a newer, more popular one).

  31. Heh guys. Year ltr. Replaced cdi-cpu last year. Loosing power again. Count on replacing every year? Dirty gas? Oil change?
    Thanks BDABill

    1. What’s the mileage on the bike?

      Could be worn piston rings if the mileage is higher, or possibly a dirty carb in need of cleaning.

      Is the bike just starting to lose power or has it been loosing power for a while?

  32. Hey everyone. I own a an125 2007. Can someone please tell me how to lose the rear wheel nut due to tire change? It is impossibly hard tighten and i can’t get it off. I have tried everything like the candle method and coca cola method… but no success.

  33. Hi .

    I’m Ali from Iraq , Baghdad , I have a 125An Suzuki , Please how can I know the date of manufacturing , by the way the notic card on the scooter wroten in Germany language

    Thanks a lot , have a nice day

    1. Not sure if you can find the actual date of manufacture, you can get the approx date from the frame number or model code. Only people who might know the exact date are Suzuki or possibly a Suzuki dealer?
