I am thinking cheap quality sprockets maybe wear quickly, then in turn ruin the shaft as they flog
 back and forth? ?

I have seen this happen to the CT110 posty bikes. Ruins the shaft.

I have not seen it on the NBC110's yet but i replace the sprockets and chains as a set fairly often, probably before the sprockets get real worn but the crappy OEM chains wear out sooner. The older CT's we could run DID o-ring chains on which last many times longer and the sprockets would get more use so more chance to wear on the splines. Honda & AP wont allow aftermarket o-ring chains on the bikes now.

Straight to the forum for imformation or serious questions and answers. If only it was easier to post pictures on here.
I have better luck buying and selling on facebook though. You just have to ignore the dum dums.

Yeah at least here there is not questions on how to turn a 4 stroke into a 2 stroke and endless  amount of questions on 'how much gear box oil does my bike hold' and 'where can i get chain for my bike'

There is supposedly a new owner that is going to revive the company again.

Its interesting reading a few articles from back in the day where they changed the oil and pressure in the last of the suzuki KYB's (79-80) usually by fitting aftermarket reservoirs, and they said it made a noticeable positive improvement. The stock oil was pretty bad and changing that alone made a difference. The damping rates still may not suit everyone so if you can fix that, fit better seal heads and floating pistons (stock ones are prone to sticking and jaming), you may end up with a fairly decent set of shocks. You get large shafts, 36mm bodied De-Carbon shocks that are the correct length and stroke. I dont think you can get any of that for under $500 in a new shock. i have known people to have RAD rebuild the stock KYB's and they were very happy with them.

Ok so if its a 79/80 twinshock KDX250, then you will probably have to source a tank in USA because that model was not officially imported here so there wont be too many here.
I believe the tanks on those were made by Don Vesco Products in USA too or at least the fuel tap anyway as a number of parts were made in USA for these bikes.

The 250 has 60mm total offset (30mm in the clamps and 30mm at the axle). I think? the 125 inline axle forks have a 50 or 55m offset in the clamps.

I thought someone may have already had a price from them. I contacted them yesterday and they quoted $450.

The reason the forks hit the tank is because the leading axle 250 triple clamps have less offset compared to the inline axle fork triple clamps on the 125. You will need to mod the steering stops on the triples and or frame and or shift the tank/seat back a bit.

Any idea on what they charge for set of 38mm tubes 700mm long that are in good condition with just a handful of minor pits between the triples?

No KDX200 that early. First KDX was 79 model 250 and 400 twinshocks.

Yamaha / Re: YZ/TT/TT front wheel width
« on: May 21, 2018, 10:34:51 PM »
It would only be a leading axle fork plate. I would have expected yamaha would have use a common width in the plate slot for everything 77 to about 81.
Mick has already ruled out the TT500 plates.
