Can anyone recommend a place in SE Michigan to have my fork caps drilled and tapped for schrader valves?



Thanks,

Dusty

I did mine with valves from my local auto parts store, a cheap drill press, a tap from hardware store and a couple drops of hydraulic thread sealant.



It is understandable not wanting to bugger up the caps, they are not cheap.



I used a digital tire filler off my compressor. Two tiny blips of air and I was at 15 psi so beware of overfilling. I've been running a conservative 8psi. I do not have a crossover between shocks like some others do. If you don't have a digital gauge maybe try a bicycle hand pump with a analog gauge.

Early YZ80's and YZ125's with 33mm fork tubes had schraeder caps which screw right into TW tubes.



Drilling and tapping the stockers isn't a big deal, but if you don't feel good about doing it yourself any automotive machine shop should be able to do it for a minimal charge, I would think.

The YZ parts diagram does not show a rubber o-ring like the TW. Would I need to use the o-ring from the TW?

Mine have the o-rings. They appear to be the same as the TW items, but don't quote me.

My local Ace Hardware store had all I needed. I would say, very doable at home without a lot of fuss. Gerry
