Permalink  
 


As you may know I'm having problem after problem with my dt so here's the new problem... Got forks with bike and they were snapped so got stanchions replace and forks rebuilt for 60 then realised yolks wer bent so spent 40 on them now I have realised that the left lower fork leg is bent inwards so my wheel does not allign properly I have got TDR 250 wheels on bike. Anyone had forks straightened? Been quoted 30 to get it fixed.... Dt wearing me down now just want it on road

Sorry forgot to check back, yes those are TDR forks and your best bet is sourcing another pair as I doubt anyone will have just one for sale. You can try and get it repaired but you'll be putting your life†in the lucks hands.

Finding out which forks they are isnt really that important, you need to find a replacement imo

Tbh i'm not 100% sure mate so answering you would just be a guess. Brackets you can get from ebay or Yamaha themselves but I don't see how you'll be able to mix and match a TDR fork leg with DTre stancton. It might work it might not. Do you not have a yamaha near you that you can take your bent for k to and get a professional opinion?
