I have a good nick in my suspension's chrome. I'm looking to replace it, but don't see any WR suspension on ebay. And am hoping not to pay full price for it.

 

I have a 2012 WR450. Are there any YZ's that use the same inner tubes? The right one in particular.

Don't replace it, just sand it out.

Thanks for the tip Krannie. I'll try to fix it.

 

The second line of my post was still referring to the (inner) fork tube.  :-)

I knew what I was talking about. Although now that I think of it, the first thing that pops into my mind when I hear "inner tube" isn't "inner fork tube".
