did you buy it from a shop or a private seller if from a shop they should be able to tell you if you baught it from a private seller and have there contact details call them and ask or you could have it dyno tested all tho that isnt normaly free or even cheap if your not sure be carefull especialy if your young and at college or somthing at the college i go to the police have turned up and done random spot checks on all the bikes and scooters to see if they were restricted

youd have to have a look

round in your area ask in your local garages and bike shops if your lucky somwhere will check it for you out of kindness if not you might be charged but the first thing to do is try and get hold of the private seller and ask them if you cant get hold of them or get the bike checked then dont worry about it to much aslong as you stick to the speed limits and keep the bike in good nick and have all your paperwork in order you shouldnt have any problem with the police but if you can get it checked for free it would be worth doing some one else on here might tell you tht your bike will do 80 even restricted some do

Restricted?

Hi and welcome.  TBH, you don't want to know if the bike is restricted.  If you are on L plates and you know then you are obligated to do something about it in order to make the machine legal for you to ride.  If you don't know you can at least try to pleasd ignorance.

To

my knowledge ignorance is no defence as far as the police are concerned, they seem to adopt the atitude that if you are the owner and or driver of a vehicle then you are obliged to ensure it conforms to the rules which apply to you when operating said vehicle. Which when you think about it is the correct way things should be done with regards to vehicles and those that use them. There are to many ignorant road users out there already, as motorcyclists we know that only too well. 

Jamie95, go to your local bike shop and ask them where you can get the bike tested on a dyno.

Honda NSR 125 F Year?

Hi Jamie95

If it does 80mph plus easily,its a full power model no restrictions,in top condition unfaired should do 90mph faired model 95-98mph(will read 100mph but probably not doing that speed)

KCMC:tongue:
