Hi, I have a Cagiva Mito and my brother an Aprilia 125. Both are superb bikes but I still rate the Cagiva better based on looks. Performance wise they are so close, perhaps the RS 125 winning because of its perky power. I have had a TZR 125 and TZR 125R and now the Mito. I love doing things to bikes as projects, if it be spraying the Calipers Gold or Red, Getting awesome decals, performance pipes, etc. My dream project for the near future is to have an Aprilia RS250 motor in a Cagiva Mito frame. I believe the Mito frame can handle the power as the RS 125 and 250 frame are almost identical. Do you think the Mito frame can handle the RS250 motor and is there enough space to fit the motor with the two exaust systems. Do you know of anywhere that I can find the dimensions for the Mito frame and Aprilia 250 motor and an estimate price of a Mito uncoloured frame and Aprilia 250 motor. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Well, you could try McMod, the Motorcycle Modifiers Register, but my advice is - don't even think about it. In this day and age, your chances of ending up with a bike that's a patch on what the factory produces with its vast technological resources are remote.

That said, if you do go ahead and try it, more power to you and your Cagilia or Apriva.

I bought a Cagiva Roadster 125 about six months ago form stolen and recovered bike salvage. Since then i put it back together not using Cagiva parts but all sorts of different parts. What was missing was the headlight, backlight, indicators, ignition switch. Now i have replaced everything barr from the ignition switch but i did manage to get it running. On my trial run of the bike on the road I got half way down the road and it cut out, about 5 mins later it started again for about 20 secs. Since then I have not managed to get it running and its been sat in my shed for 2 months and still no joy. Can anyone help me by pointing in the right direction for a new ignition switch and a Manual to tell me why it wont run please -- Andy (northwest England) -- PATCHVKD at aol dot com

I have a Cagiva dirt bike of some kind. I need some help identifying it. I would like to know what year and if I can find a manual. I can get the engine and frame numbers, if you can tell me which ones. It says WMX on the engine where the numbers are stamped. It looks like a 125cc (definitely 2-stroke). It has the radiator mounted behind the number plate on the front forks. The water lines run thru the frame. It has the wiring for lights, but has none. Any info would be appreciated. You can reach me at btgwash at msn dot com . thanks.

I have a Cagiva N90 Trailie - (125 version of the Paris Dakar Elefant) Great Fun - see it at
I am trying to obtain a workshop manual for it but the main UK agent 3 Cross are being particularly unhelpful (nothing new there then!!).

I have obtained the Parts Catalogue microfiche (part no. 800063287) and am wondering if anybody knows if the workshop manual is available either as a hard copy or microfiche, and if so what the part number is. I have given up on UK Cagiva dealers and 3X and would appreciate it if anyone has any ideas on obtaining the manual from anywhere. I have mailed info at but as usual no response.
Any help with suggestions or ideas will be gratefully received.
Cheers -- Jonathan -- email: jonp at

August 11, 2002
Hi, my pal and I own two of the Cagiva n90 and tamanaco models, both imports from Italy to the UK, as with all things Italian they can be a bit fragile, so this brings up the subject of spares, does any one know of a reliable source for spares, the factory will not deal direct with us and the UK main dealer is very reluctant to assist with imported bikes, even though we did obtain from them original micro-fisch,so we can quote the part numbers of spares we require, our best thoughts are to contact an agent in Europe and by-pass the UK dealer . Any help with this would be great. -- regards jim -- comptonbennett at

I also raced Cagivas off road and MX in the mid 80's loved still do also worked for a dealer in south Florida during that time. I raced the wmx250 (190)in MX and hare scrambles for 2 years also raced a wmx500. Coming off of 125 the "200" as we called it, was perfect for me although the suspension wasn't all that great. I think because of this I seemed to break motor mounts a lot and went through silencers (when the rear shock would bottom the rear sprocket would destroy it). It also ate a clutch basket my first race, which by the way was replaced under warranty!!!

Keep this bike away from water if it has the stock Nippondenso ignition it will quit running and or fry the stator, the hot setup at the time was a motoplat (out of business???). Had many good finishes on this bike would like to find another just to have. The wmx500 gave my first taste of real power after buying this beast the 200 sat most of the time. I remember bending the chain adjusters constantly and the kickstarters seemed to be made of butter in that I broke several. Toward the end of Cagiva North America, getting parts for this bike was very hard (probably impossible now) but I was using Yamaha yz490 pistons, Suzuki rm465/500 rear sprockets, YZ front sprockets, either yz490 or rm500 clutch plates, rm rear brake shoes (I think, god it's been a long time) KTM used the same forks on some of their bikes 40mm Marrzochi so seals should be some what easy to come by. I hope some of this info is useful, and thanks for letting me relive some of my best racing memories. -- good luck
Thanks, Jeff -- schickie at

Hi Cagiva Dirt Bike fans,
I recently bought a 1986 Cagiva 125 WMX. It needed a few critical parts like a new piston/ring, motoplat ignition, radiator shock mount bolts, swing arm bearings, and one main crank bearing. I found two places to buy Cagiva parts which are:

Letko - Kansas City, Kansas, USA (913-334-2410 ask for Diane)

European Dirt - Silt, Colorado, USA (970-876-5277 Daryl)

I bought the bearings from Eastern Bearings in Waltham, Massachusetts, USA, but you can buy them from any bearing/seal distributor.

It would be nice to start a parts supply list for Cagiva dirt bike parts and street bike parts too.

I've just recently bought myself a Cagiva 125 SuperCity, and I was wondering if you could tell me what would be the best oil to use. I'm currently running it on Silkoline pro-2, however when I bought it I'm sure there was a different oil in it because it had a perfume tinge to it and it ran perfectly. If you can help me, e-mail at charlie at
Thank you very much

Found your website, very nice. I raced for Cagiva at the support level in '84 and '85. I had a WMX 250 and a WMX 500. The 250 was great (for being a 190) during night races but too slow for racing in the daylight. I still have my 500 although it is in a few pieces and has not been run in about 12 years. I plan on getting this running again over the next few months.

[The remainder of this email has been incorporated into the Cagiva History section, above]

I believe I still have the original dealers manuals for both the WMX 250 (1984) and WMX 500 (1985). I will know in the next month or so as I am cleaning out my storage unit that has all of those goodies in it. As for getting parts, has anybody tried contacting the distributor, Cagiva N.A., in New Jersey?

Although my buddies made fun of me for riding the "Pasta Putter", I liked them and always will.

Can anyone help me. I have been looking for a 125cc bike Enduro style (I originally wanted a Yamaha DT125), and I've found a Cagiva 125 Enduro, but I don't know the model. The bike is being sold by a dealer, it's stolen/recovered, has just over 1000 miles on the clock, it's an 'R' reg and is going for £1500. I know nothing about these bikes, so does this sound like a good deal? Thanks for any help you can give me! -- Mark (Bolton, England) -- Mark Schofield [ mark-scof at yahoo dot com ]
