05 yz fork on 08 yz 125

Recommended Posts

In a pincH and on a slow iPhone. Got a new to me 08 yz125 and the the plastic thing in the chamber is broken. I have an 05 yz 250, Can I swap the fork off the 250? It's the right side.

Can't I swap just the right leg and not worry about the rotor etc?

Oh

Wasn't even thinking it being non caliper side.

Can you swap it? Yes

Will it work the same? No

05 and 06+ forks have a few different internals and different valving as well as drop out changes for wheel spacing. If you HAD to ride and needed something then you could try it.

I believe the spacing on the triple clamps is different (farther apart), which is offset by different axle lugs. You would need to use both fork legs, and the triple clamps, and either the whole brake system or the caliper mount.
