Suzuki / Re: DR500Z Swingarm

Yeah you could use a 76-79 era RM Profab/DG, it is same/correct length but you will have to make adaptions for the DR swingarm pivot which is larger than the RM. Not much to gain with it really because it wont have the banana bend it like the DR ones. You gotta watch out for bends/axle alignment probs with the Profabs too. I have been caught out a couple times with one axle slot higher than the other, therefore axle is tilted up/down to one side  >:(
The DR Profab/white Bros arms might show up on ebay once every 10 years if you are lucky unlike the Yamaha ones where its on average evry 3 or 4 months. So they are very rare, just not many were ever made. By the time they were making the DR400/500 arms they were using larger box section than the older TT and RM Profabs too.
Like i said the stock DR500 Z/D/E alloy arm is good (apart from weak/thin pivot tube like the PE's - watch for cracks/splits here) so i dont see why you would want to use a KLX arm that will require some mods.

Well if you already have an 82-Z and not the 82-SZ, it should already have the alloy swingarm. I have photos and pics of the Profab arms but thats it. They are very rare. No where near as common as XT/TT500 swingarms. The stock alloy arms are pretty decent though. Theres not a huge amount of difference between stock and the Profab really. I have got Ohlins valving spec for the DR400

Definitely stay with the cushdrive hub. it might be a little heavy but its a far far better design than the old TS/TM cush hub

The ONLY pre 85 legal suzuki 'dirt bike' disc front wheel/forks is the 84 model TS250X. The forks are 38mm and shorter so are obviously a down grade from the 43mm RM forks. So the only other way to use the TS disc wheel/brakes is if you were creative you could make a caliper holder/carrier to go onto the stock RM 43mm forks and use the TS wheel. I have seen this done before on all sorts of drum forks. This would be ok because no 85 model parts are being used.
The 85 model RM500F is an 85 model. Using the disc front off that 85 model is not legal for pre 85 because the parts are 1985 model parts. Easy to understand i would of thought.

The disc front end will have to go if its an 84 model bike and you want to race in pr85 class. And if it does happen to be the ultra rare 85 model 500 well that is out for pre 85 too.

Sounds like they are early 70's models so not what i am after.

still available new too

So spoke sets from these could work assuming spoke cross is the same. Count the cross on yours (2 or 3) and then check out photos of above wheels on ebay. Even if they are the same you may still find that the spoke nipples let you down if they are from chrome rims

I would be looking at 76 TS185 spoke set. That model at least has alloy rims so the spoke nipples in that could very well just work with the TM rim.

Suzuki / Re: TM250 / TS250 spoke differences
« on: September 12, 2018, 11:49:46 PM »
Tm has small 130mm hub and the TS250/400 has larger 150mm hub so spokes will be different length.

You want to be looking at some of the TS/TC125/185 sets, they could work but typically the nipples may be different length/diameter because of the steel rim most of the TS/TC use vs alloy on TM.
You will need to use Zedder and parts books to compare some part numbers.

Before you get too far, rip the head off the XLX and look for cracks in the plug hole and around valve seats. Almost all this model develop cracked heads. not good choice of motor.

« on: August 27, 2018, 07:07:32 PM »
People have talked about, it needs to be done. I have always wanted to try a 1980 RM250/400 buffer though. Surely they would fit? I cant really see how they would vary from the PE one.

Wanted / Re: RM/PE full floater front hub spacer
« on: August 26, 2018, 02:46:14 PM »
I don't even know the size because its a brand new hub and did not have one. It will be just as much work to get one made as it will be to find one.
