Honda CRF 250L front suspension upgrade

Post by Andy_striker » Sun Jan 03, 2021 5:48 pm

Can you help?

I have been searching, without success to find a UK supplier for the front suspension upgrades.

I'm looking at 2 options at the moment:

1) Race Tech spring kit from the USA
2) Ohlins FSK 123. These are available on the UK Ebay but from the USA or Italy.

Do you know of any UK supplier?

Cheers Andy

Thanks Minkyhead,
They are far cheaper than the Ohlins. Do you have these fitted?

Hi, if your interested i have a complete front end from a CRF250x for sale it s both triple clamps forks with new seals and oil front wheel disc and axle, im not sure whether ive got a caliper as well, i used it on my XR400, it should be a lot better than standard 250L forks.
If its any good to you get in touch.

Thank you, I have found UK suppliers for both the kits above now.
I could not find any prices on a set of 450x forks but I would have thought they would need a service etc so the price would be more than the Ohlins setup at £235.

You are right about the Race Tech setup, it has another linear spring in the lefthand fork leg. For £110 I'll go this way.

Thanks for your help,

Andy
