2008 yz forks for a 2007 wr

Recommended Posts

They don't fit.

Thought you should know.

Different Caliper and Axle.

Should have done more searching before leaping.

Good news is I found the right ones, and they are on there way.

2008 YZ forks anyone??

2005/6/7 YZ for 2007 WR.

You have to change the Caliper, Axle, and Front wheel to make the 2008 YZ forks work.

You can't make custom spacers/bushings for the wheel? The KDX guys have perfected fork swaps...

Glad you said it..

Yeah, I'm sure it's fine if you take your time, and test fit and re-fit, etc.

I just would prefer an OEM solution.

All the forks on ebay are about the same price: 250 - 350 for average condition without pits or broken lugs, and 350-450 for a pristine set.

The YZ125/250/450 on certain years have SSS forks and other years have the AOS forks, that are a direct fit to the WR.

I am learning that you can tell if it is the correct YZ fork by the top of the fork (recessed clicker) if its a cartridge fork (AOS or SSS) and if it's the right year by the size of the Caliper bracket (large). You want the larger bracket and the recessed clickers. Apparently you can only tell if it's an SSS system by the year and model of bike it came from, as the markings on the lugs are the same.
