    Can anyone ID these USD Forks?

    I have a feeling they could be from a ZXR250 but have no idea really.

    I need an axle and it would be a lot easier to find if I knew what they were.

    The axle clamp side is 25mm and the other side is 18mm with a MF18 thread from what I can see.

    Any ideas would be appreciated

    An approx length, tube dia and a few other little details like distance between legs would be useful.

    Definitely look like ZXR250 forks from a google image search.

    Looks a bit like an axle I've got from kx125 fork of the mid '90s - 25mm at the fat end, 18mm thread at the other (on the KX there was a threaded inset clamped in the fork leg, that the axle screws into. its about 145mm from the step at the end to the beginning of the thread.

    Alsoit looks like you might have to replace the fork legs dies to corrosion. Same as the forks I have got. Has anyone ever successfully removed the legs from the axle carriers and fitted new legs? if so, how?
