    @Calum said in Seized rear suspension relay arm nut removal hack:

    @SpookDog Pretty sure I just measured the ones that come out and ordered the same again off SimplyBearings.co.uk

    @Calum do the same just measure then buy Koyo from Henderson Bearings on ebay. Use these for swinging arm https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/274836296252?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=575083436083&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

    @SpookDog thank you for the advice lad. The dude is selling the shock because he managed to ride it so hard that it broke in half lol.

    @CalDT125

    The dust seals supposed to be under the curclip isn’t it? Mines quite loose compared to the oil seal and would pop out if it wasn’t under the seal…

    @HOTSHOT-III

    Yeah replaced that mate. Only thing I didn’t replace is the bolt going through there, number 17 on diagram, the two dog bone bolts and shock bushes as bought second hand shock as couldn’t get parts and they seemed all good.

    Will check it over again and update on here.

    Someone else on fb said they had similar problem

    @SpookDog said in Progressive fork springs?:

    @MadGyver

    Did you just delete the spacers completely? Any noticeable improvement? Also are the springs linear or progressive?...
    Cheers bud!...

    Didn't remove anything as memory serves.I had 2 forks,one DT125 and later one DT200,I had purchased every part to rebuild the 125 before having the 200.Compared everything and found to be the same except the springs.So I used the springs and the air adjust caps from the 200 forks.
    They don't bottom easy as far I tested them and seem better for the SM style than the 125 springs,but soft to go trail ride.

    @markus-w
    Cheers bud! I got them all ordered now (top & bottom bushes from Brooke’s, oil & dust seals original parts) Only thing I couldn’t find was the curclips for the fork leg tops. I just need to measure one when I remove it and order them by size, I guess...

    I would really like to get hold of some late model forks with low mileage to rebuild, if possible...

    Since I rebuilt the top end I’ve had tank leaks, rear punctures and now the right hand fork seal has failed! The joys of a 34 year old, basket case 2 stroke never end! I’ve had to put the HR exhaust on hold for the last couple weeks...

    @Morten

    I’ve got Yz125 UD forks on a DTR125 frame. The previous owner fitted a Dtr headstock tube into the lower yoke (Yz ones are an inch or so longer) It’s not a perfect job though cause the yokes don’t line up with the ‘hourglass’ shape of the fork legs...

    Best machine lathe a longer cup bearing adapter out of stainless and press it into the headstock IMO 😉

    @HOTSHOT-III

    Cheers for the info bud! I did manage to find a few likely suspects. 8mm inner hole and fittable to the nut on my lower mount, as well as being bearing raced. I’ve even found a few spring loaded contraptions that look fitable,(with a bit of finessing!) but I imagine that if they’re in constant contact with the chain that they’d shred the roller PDQ! It’s all food for thought though 😉 ...
    Once I tap a grease nipple into both sides of the swing arm front mount points. Try and find some half decent progressive front springs, get the upper and lower bushes and new seals, I’ll be happy. Have managed to get hold of a dtr200 variable dampening rear shock that I want to try and rebuild as well. I’ll have more faith in the setup at 70mph plus speeds 🤞 ...

    I also want to improve the engine mount bolts under the swing arm bolt and at the engine front mount below the exhaust and bottom coolant pipe...

    I think my engine may of been shifting about under loads and putting excess pressure on the cylinder head mount. Maybe affecting the gasket seal??!... on

    Let you in to a little secret the xt600 shock spring fits into to the dt shock, either that or YSS shock is a good upgrade according to the guys on here which I am going for personally

    Again, sorry! I must of been having a massive brain fart! You’re right, I thought I had a link saved but it’s for a Yz for some reason 😐

    The only linkage kit I can find now is £110 ☹️
