suspension issues
 
I've got a 1972 Yamaha dt250. The rear shocks are shot anyone know where I can get new ones? And not old new to me ones (ebay) haha. Also the front is very very spongy, the fork seals leak like crazy, will replacing the seals and refilling them with oil fix this? Any answers would be much appreciated!

How about these guys? http://www.partsnmore.com/parts/yamaha/dt250/?filters[category]=chassis

Scroll down for shocks on the same page.

I've used their store for some carb parts and some headlight brackets, plus water pump mechanical seals. Shipping was fast and I always got what I paid for.

Never used them for shocks though, so I can't tell.

A set of new Progressive shock's is the best way to go.
Low cost and they work pretty good
Choose your desired spring rate and ride away

replacing seals will help of course but remember you are dealing with antiquated suspension compared to modern stuff.
