Will a Holeshot Device for a 2008 YZ250 fit my 2006?

Be advised, you also need a 08 front axle and axle spacer to put thinks back together.

I think you could get a holeshot device to work fine but you'll have a little trial and error getting the latch set to the height you want since the template won't line up exactly on the 06 fork guard like it does on the 08+ fork guard. You'll also have to compensate for the stanchion height difference, I can't confirm that difference though.

Wait a second..I remember trying to use the black, 2008 lower fork guides on my 06 forks. They were too marrow to fit in the groove where the white 06 guide sat. Is this where the holeshot device fits?
Google Works Connection Pro Launch. That's what I'm planning to order. It has a collar that goes around the lower end of the stanchion and the catch mechanism that screws to the fork guard. Assuming the info the other two provided regarding the stanchions is correct, the only issue I should have is setting the mechanism to compress the forks the desired amount. That is unless the radius of the newer style fork guards is drastically different from the '06 ones, which I doubt. Probably wouldn't make much of a difference even if they are.

hmm maybe just order a set of fork guards too with your wholeshot device?
I would still probably have to do trial and error. If they made the stanchions shorter I assume there's more tube sticking out of the bottom that the guards have to cover up. Anyone have any answers for that? Will new style fork guards fit on the '06 fork lugs?
