SOURCE: Can you straighten torqued front forks on a 2002 Yamaha TTR 125 L

you should be able to saporrt bike so front wheel is off the ground   then take a marker and put lines around where the forks meet the triple trees that hold them in place their should be some allen head bolts that u can loosen on front of the triple clamps  once these are loose you should be able  to move the forks back to strait again in line with the handle bars just line the lines up that u put on them earlier and tighten the allen bolts back up    also  when making the lines  make them from left  to right so marker is touching both fork tube and triple clamp   this is only so you get can keep them the same ride hight as before

SOURCE: what fluid to put into front forks, rear shocks, trans

Your bike is 35 years old. Not a lot of 360s left out there. The forks take 10w fork oil. Any dealer will have the oil. Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. If I recall correctly, it takes 2.25 quarts of oil. I think there was an oil dipstick on the bike. Go by the dipstick reading. The dipstick does not get screwed in when checking oil level. See if the oil quantity is embossed on the case just below the oil filler hole. The bike does not have an oil filter.

The stock spark plug is an NGK-B9ES. The rear shocks are a sealed unit I believe. 35 years does dull the memory at times.

Use TWO STROKE ENGINE OIL in the pump. If not using an automatic oil pump, then mix the gas and oil 32 to 1. That equals 4 ounces of TWO STROKE ENGINE OIL to one gallon of gas. NEVER use motor oil in the gas. Only two stroke engine oil.

Thanks for the opportunity to try and recall ancient history. It was enjoyable.
Please rate this solution. Thanks!

The forks hold 286ml or 9.67 US OZ of oil, best would be to use hydraulic oil.
Good Luck.

no not really,the diameter of the fork tubes are probably different,maybe a dt 400 would be closer,replace them in pairs,dont replace only 1,the spring rate & dampening is different,try junk yards in your area,get a complete front end from a dt 400,it should fit.
