Go to etrailer.com or other such source for class III hitches to install. Just because its a class III, doesnt always mean its rated for 800lbs. Models and applications can vary, but even if only 600lbs, it would still be an improvement over a class ... more »

The pivot collars exterior diameter is also larger on 02 and newer so you cant just swap the collars. The 02+ collars won't fit into the 99-01 cases unless you machine the 99-01 case to enlarge the hole that accepts the collar or reduce the exterior

So is it Ward for AMA premier class? Premier class, must be Ward I'd think. When he won the 500 title in 1990, it was still contested by all the top riders including Stanton, Johnson, the O'Show and others. He not only beat Stanton in the 500 class, ... more »

Duh... how could have I not remembered Dowd! 98 125SX West title, though he would have been 32 as his birthday isnt until August 10th (1965). No less impressive though, even won a 250SX race that year in Charlotte. Won Broome-Tioga in NY that august ... more »

Interesting fact brought up in yesterdays telecast. Don't remember hearing an answer.... Who is the oldest rider to win a title? I think Jeff Ward (500) and Mike Brown (125) both got an outdoor title at age 29. Don't know who the oldest motocross race ... more »

If you're welder falls through, you can mix and match the cases. Any case from 02 and newer will work for your bike. 99-01 can also work if you are willing to do a minor modification, just drilling out the rear bushing to match the 02 and newer bikes ... more »

Pretty much any 99-current YZ125 shock should fit. The YZ250 shock will fit as will the most of the early YZ250F shocks. There might be small differences like the the shaft diameters over the years, the valving and spring rate will be different on the

Think deccr250 nailed it, your output (counter) shaft is not fully seated in its bearing. The second gear pinion and wheel should be flush to each other on their respective shafts. To remove sticky transmissions, lightly tap on the main shaft from the
