I sent my forks to house of horse power. They have been making springs custom for this mod.

They quoted me 450 to do the job, plus shipping. surely they are not the only ones doing this. I want to do it myself and just buy the springs if that is possible? what have other people done for this part?

He will sell you the springs. He has the valving down for this mod and most people are happy with it. I tired another shop in town on my first round and was not happy with it. Wish I just went with HH the first time around.

Anyone got front Dakar ABS brake line?

Any of you KYB swappers have a lower Dakar w/ABS front brakeline laying around? Trying to avoid ordering a new one for a swap to my old forks on my GF's bike. Mine was w/o ABS.

Mods, forgive if not in swap meet. Captive audience.

yz426f fork & triples bolt torques

Hi all,
does anyone know the best place to get the pinch bolt / axel nut torques?
or, even better, does anyone have a list of all the toques?

JDRadman ran up a document on axle/fork tightening & torque values

Pretty sure it is included in the notes I made & put online

EDIT, Sorry no it seems I did not

6. Install:
 Nut (wheel axle) 1
105 Nm (10.5 m kg, 75 ft lb)
7. Tighten:
 Bolt (axle holder) R. .
23 Nm (2.3 m kg, 17 ft lb)
NOTE:
Before tightening the bolt, fit the wheel axle to
the axle holder by stroking the front fork

from Yamaha manual, hasn't cut and pasted too well, because its a picture in the manual. But hopefully gives you want you need

Anyone know anything.

I thougnt it would be nice for me. I also have a Drz if the front ends were the same I could just swap wheels around for whatever tire I wanted at the time. Agressive knobbie, supermoto, etc.

There are threads about fitting DRZ forks to other machines, there may be one at f650.com as well, suggest you do a little searching

Try to find out the steering head bearing size, if the outer diamiter is the same as the BMW / YZ then you may be in luck. Also try asking anyone (on forums etc) who know more about the drz and YZ, if they are the same I'm sure someone would know.

Just got back from western TAT about a week ago and the fork seal on the right leg is leaking oil. I got the 46 mm Yamaha forks.Don't know what Richard used so I don't know what to put in. 5w should be fine?

Also make sure and get Yamaha or SKF seals. Don't use any of those seal kits. They are shit.
