drz 125 rm80 fork swap

Recommended Posts

I decided to scrap the pogo sticks on my daughters drz125. I heard the rm 80 forks bolt right up. I found a set for 150.00 and guess what, they do. Same bearings etc. I put them on the bike to ensure they fit before dropping them off at Factory Connection for a rebuild. The new forks seem to amplify the rake on the drz some as they are about 3.5 " longer than the stockers. I'll probably slide the tubes up in the triple clamps some to tidy things up a bit. How far can I go withou screwing things up? What issues do I need to be concerned with when I do this? Do aftermarket triple clamps work better for this and why? Any advice would be appreciated.
