Will 1997 yz125 forks mount in the stock clamps of my 1996 yz125

I have a 1996 yz125 with bad forks and found a set of 1997 forks on ebay with new seals for a good deal and want to know if they'll bolt up, they're not exactly the same forks but don't know any specifics.

Yes, they should as they are the KYB 46mm. But, why not just rebuild your forks? WAY CHEAPER!

And very easy.

Shoot, if you are in SoCal and near me 92676 Orange County, I'll help you out in my shop. Be the 10th before I get back. 

I have a set of 03's to rebuild and will do  a work along with you. Even my daughter can do them.

They use the same triple clamps - same front wheel - only difference i see is internal

will the brake mount up

Same caliper same brake disc

is $240 including shipping a good deal for a set of 1997 forks with new seals and oil? Or should I go for the craigslist 96 forks that are 100, but will probably need seals in the future?

      A tiny clear rubber tube on bottom of carb.  On bottom sort of on side, by floats, the other end just hanging down.  Was it always like this? Or does the other end go somewhere?  Today after multiple trys with kick, choke on/off ,,,fuel keeps pouring out the tube.  This bike has always been hard to start.   Thanx  guys!

      I just did my valve adjustments and put my YZ250f back together as far as the valves, shims buckets and cam covers on but I need adhesive for the plastic valve/cam cover and I am stumped as far as what to use and where to get it or even what to call it! Need to get some soon im in need of a ride!

      Hey guys, I bought this YZ85 and came to realise the clutch wasnt working, so I drained the oil (Jet black) and pulled the plates out and cleaned them. I assumed finding a torque wrench would be easier than it has been. Does anyone know how to torque the clutch springs to spec without a wrench? Any insight helps.
