Will 05+ linkage fit a steel frame yz

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I got yz125 (03) and PO decided to machine the linkage and went with oversized bearings? (Dunno why he did it ?)

I really like to service the linkage with OEM bearings and, well, now I can't. But it seems like newer models have better linkage design with washers that protect seals. It is similar to linkage I got on my  DRZ which uses Showa components. Pre 05 models have sleeves with 'shoulders' that got packed with dirt after each ride.

Did anyone tried to swap it or maybe at least measure the linkage? They look similar on pictures. (I am looking for a bolt on fit not a hack with welding and grinding)

According to this part cross referencing table, they are not compatible. They say 2002-2003 fit, and 2005-2011 fit.
