I need a suspension linkage for my 97 cr125

Recommended Posts

I was replacing my suspension linkage bearings when I realized that I have a crack runnig halfway across my suspension linkage where it bolts to the frame.

I have the bearings and parts to fit inside the linkage, I just need the linkage part itself.

If i go through bike bandit, they want $189 and it comes with the bearing kit and bolt, washers, dust seals.

Problem is, i just spent $75 on the bearing kit for it, so I don't want to buy two of the same thing.

Do you know where I can find just the linkage? Parts unlimited has the bearing kit, but no linkage itself.

I'm not sure how long i've been riding on cracked linkage, I thought i'd be able to bring it to a welder and have them just weld the crack.

any help would be appreciated, it seems as if its getting harder and harder to find parts for the older bikes.

I have lots of linkages that would fit your bike.

That won't work for his bike.

oops! you are right, I had quickly scanned the add and thought it came off of a 97 125 when he actually said it came off a 97 250.

Just curious if an 08 CRF250 linkage set up will work? I know it works on 03 CR125.

I have spare 08 linkage stuff.

Here is the part that I need, you will see it is cracked in one of the pictures, that crack runs halfway across the circular portion.

Take some good measurements of it. Length, bearing insert area, etc. I will check some of the CR's links I have here.

I should have one of those off 97 cr125. I'll check tonight when I get off work

Hey that would be great... let me know what I can do for you in return.

I can get measurements of the linkage also... If it still has the bearings inside of it that would be awesome also.
