1984 Rm250 fork swap

Does anyone know if a fork swap would be possible on such a old bike?? What im looking for is new forks like on the "newer" motocross forks.

If not is there a way to stiffen up the forks. Im gonna try heavier oil, but would there be anyone out that sells stiffer springs for a bike this old??

Which way would be more cost effective?

Thanks in advance.

its amazing how many years you can swap forks on, as long as you use the whole front-end, that '84 could stand to use some decent forks

Good advise.

If you get the entire front end (triple clamps and wheel), you can even install a front end that has a disk brake!

But if your only looking into firming things up, a Race Tech shop can respring and revalve those forks. And because it's so old, are you sure that it's just not needing a rebuild?

Also, treat that front end with care. The '84 RM-250 front end is considered to be the best that you can install on a vintage racer. Sell it as a package (wheel, brake, forks and triple clamps) and you could get as much as $250. I personally sold a set of forks and triple clamps on eBay a year ago for $150. But the brake has to go in the sale as it's specific to those forks.

Where are you located? ~ PM me if you want to sell the entire bike...
