Changing out front forks on drz125L

Recommended Posts

so i want to change out my front forks but i was wondering...if i get rm 85 front forks would i need to get the rm85L since my drz has the large wheel set up or can i just get the forks an they will bolt up??will an rm80 forks bolt up also??

Rm 80 forks will work, and youll save some weight over the inverted 85's ( I ran rm 80 forks for a year or so, and they actaully worked pretty nicely). But the 85 forks are the cream of the crop. Im not sure if the small wheel version will work though....Im sure somebody will chime in shortly.

Get the 05 or newer rm 85L forks . The forks are stiffer, valving is better plus it all bolts up to your existing wheel brake rotor and caliper. You will probably need a RM 85 axle bolt to complete.

The forks are about 2lbs heavier than your stock forks and clamps but that slight weight change is well worth having because the difference is night and day.

Rm 85 tripple clamps also bolt right up. Go do it, it's well worth doing.:)
