Please identify this front forks

Recommended Posts

Recently bought a second DRZ.
It is a model S with some lacks, missing parts and modifications.
Most pronounced are the USD front forks, that obviously are not stock. See photo's.
The seat height is way to high for me, so I want to modify or replace this forks.
Please help me to identify the origin of them. Some data:
- They are about 100 mm longer then the stock ones
- Diameter at the clamps: 56,5 mm
- Between the clamps: 51 mm
- The protectors do not fit exactly, so do not belong to this forks
- The brake assembly is the same as on my stock DRZ
- Diameter of brake disk is the same as on my stock DRZ

Late RM125/250 or early RMZ250.  4 bolt brake rotors are the giveaway.

Nope, not late 90, early 90s. Definitely not an RMZ. I'm betting on 89 or 90 - 91. The real giveaway is the axle threading into the axle lug, with no pinch bolts. One easy way is to measure the tubes.

If its 89-90 RM/RMX they will be 41mm KYB. 91- 95  will be 45mm Showas

Complete thread jack, but I like that headlight setup. Anyone know what it is?

Polisport MMX Headlight. It's DOT legal but barely does it's job, dimly lit and just plain sucks until you upgrade to LED or HID for any kind of real-world night time riding. Had one on my old woods CR250. Looks nice but the buck  stops there.... Save for a Baja Designs squadron headlight IMHO...  and +1 to the O.P. on EARLY 90's not late RM250 forks

Thanks for the reactions. At least I know in which direction to search now.
But I did not find the exact match yet, so more reactions are still welcome.
