Yamaha sr125 1982 parts question was created by 7Chris6

Hey folks I have a 1982 yamaha sr125 and need some fork stanchions as they are pitted,I'm struggling to find a pair .... am I right in thinking the yamaha XT forks would fit as the Haynes manual covers both XT and SR. Are the parts interchangeable? It's drum brakes front and rear.Many thanks any help appreciated

I'm guessing a little as works in the yam shop but have never seen an SR125 only a 185 & 250. 185 had weird spoke setup in the wheels. Anyway, XT125 is leading axle & longer forks so forget that. If you wanted to fit the front forks complete you'd need the triples because of the offset between non leading and leading axle. Then you'd end up with forks hitting the tank on full lock as the triples sit back more inline straight across the stem, or close compared to straight axle triples stepping forward. What i'd do [& i'm rough at times] i'd spin them up in my lathe & emery them a little then new seals & fork boots & only you & i will know its rusted lol. Should see my DT1 which should leak but doesn't.

What part of the world are you from? My reply is caveated that if you're not from the US, then it won't be as helpful.

Go to the CMSNL and/or Partzilla websites and follow your nose to your make, model, then parts listings. If you select on the part you're interested in, scroll down a little and you'll find a list of all other models that that part was fitted to.

This method is not so good for European models, as neither website has a comprehensive list of parts manuals for those bikes.

Franks Forks in the US might produce repros.
