Difference Between 1975 and 1976 MX or YZ Forks?
Posted 07 April 2012 - 05:08 PM
The question is, Race Tech, who I am sponsored by, only sells springs back to the 1976 model. I cannot buy any suspension parts from another source, so I must buy then from here. Will these springs fit the older forks? Or, must I race on a horribly soft front end?

The biggest size they supply is very small? I am not understanding what you are trying to say.

I was trying to think of a spring out of another bike that would be the same diameter,yet heavier. My guess was a dt400 spring might work...
The 75mx had a very small (skinny) fork comparred to the 76 mx and yz 125s'.
I run RaceTech emulators in my 75 250 mx, They didn't list them but i called them and gave my piston size that i needed and they sent some.But again...my forks are larger than yours. Unless you can give the dia. of the springs they might not be able to help.
