Stupid Fork Question

Recommended Posts

I'm rebuilding a set of 1981 YZ125 forks.

After much🤣🙂 I finally got both the fork legs apart. To my surprise there was only a rebound spring in one of the legs...👍

I checked the only parts diagram I have...but it only shows an exploded view of one fork leg's internals.

Should there

be one in each leg (these are the short ~2" springs that sit on the damper rods)...or only one total?

I have both 82 and 83 YZ 125 forks and there are springs in both.

Well...it certainly makes sense...but unfortunately it doesn't seem you can buy these anymore.

EDIT....brainstorm just occurred...I'll take apart one of the XT550 fork legs they're replacing and rob one out of there...whoo hoo!

Take both!

They're the top out springs, which should not be lopsided.

You're putting them on a XT550?

I'll check to see if they're the same.

Yep they're going on the XT.
