Replacement mid valve post/holder for KYB

Recommended Posts

After removing the stakes on my 05 KX250 there's only about 2.5 threads left. They seem to be holding up fine, but I would like to replace them over the winter. Where's the best place to get these? Aftermarket or original KYB?

Cost?

Thanks.

i get them through technical touch kyb. they're located in upland, ca. they're not too expensive. you could probably get them from enzo, pc, mb1, etc. i use loctite, and i stake the nut on those. they should hold up fine, but i only use 25in lbs. with a dial-type torque wrench.

Those threads on the rebound/mid-holder are very, very short already, ie with 2.5 windings you're/should be still in the ballpark.

as a rule of thumb, if the threads are flush with the nut, it's fine.

Thanks. What's the damage for KYB parts? Just curious.

i think retail is $28.00 each, but i'm not positive on that one.

We have them at $18.32 each. KYB OEM.

And I would think that you could run the common YZ stem as well, which is 5mm longer. 👍
