Hi, I've been looking for some Ohlins forks to fit on my YZ426F.

These have come up on ebay:


Does any one know if the forks and triple clamps from a 2008 YZF250 will fit a YZ426F?

The stem will be shorter on the '08 than on your 426. Using OEM parts or common aftermarket replacements like Applied or Tag, you could simply swap stems, but I don't know about the interchangeability of the Ohlins stems.

The other wrinkle is that the '08 250 had a smaller caliper that mounts up on a different bolt pattern, so you'd need '08 hydraulics for the front brake.
