That's a nice upgrade, those were great forks. A 96-98 RM front number plate will have fork protectors on it and look good on there assuming it will work with the Honda front fender.

McGrath hated those forks and actually did the exact opposite conversion, putting the CR shocks on an RM.

McGrath also never rode pro with conventional forks til then. For the average Joe, those forks were fantastic and still very good by today's standards. Lucky to have them.

so by everyone's opinions im lucky to have these folks and there the best forks of the era? em i better off trying to find a set of cr125 03 forks or be abit different and run these? also does this mean that the front rim is also a rm wheel? sorry if these questions are abit stupid im a amateur at best when it comes to suspension

keep these forks, enjoy. The wheel is probably RM for the ease of conversion, not an RM expert though. Someone shoud be able to tell from the side of the hub.
