    '99's don't have calipers. They have drum brakes. Lil unclear on your question, but all calipers will fit all years of DISC brake('01-up) front ends.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    uhh.. that's strange dude.. i have a '99 TW125 with disc brakes..

    can i now say i'm sure the PO changed the forks? or is it an american thing?



    PS: are there any markings on the forks that tell the year they got made in?

    Ok. There are/were a number of differences between the 125 and 200. We never had the 125 here so that is likely one of them.



    To get more accurate info and avoid further confusion wait for mackbig to chime in. Don't want to steer you wrong.
