Upgrading 05 to 09 suspension

I have forks, and shock from an 09 yz 250f to put on my 05 yz 125. I know I need the 09 axle and spacer. But for the rear do I need the 09 linkage and swingarm?

not sure of the linkage, but pretty sure those 09 forks are about an 1 1/2 inches shorter then the 2 stroke forks...

I think the forks will be ok, you will find out soon.


The shock should be fine. the 2009 yz250f/450 got new swingarm, linkage, rear hub, axle, spokes etc. Im pretty sure the shock itself did not change.
