Really? No kidding. So this bike was definitely converted for some mxing by the looks of things. The rider must of been pretty light. I am around 5"11 and 165lbs. It is nice and plush. Nicest riding off road bike I've owned. The adjustments definitely stiff it up, but I'm really liking it compared to my old yz426f and rm250 suspension wise. The ohlins rear shock is a god send. Nevermind the overall weight of the bike. Even with the desert tank filled to the brime, it is still so much lighter and better handling than that old Yamaha. That thing absolutely killed me in weight. I liked the bike a lot but it tired me out to quick and I missed the smell of 2 stroke.

I need to buy a caliper. Are there any reasonably priced digital ones out there? The mituba we use at work are nice. But I'm not spending 140 bucks for something i wouldn't use that often. They look bigger than 45mm but who knows.

Mitutoyo or Brown & Sharpe are great options for very high quality tools, and something that's likely to last a lifetime.

But, I completely get not wanting to spend that much money for something nearly never used. The cheap Harbor Freight ones are fine for stuff where the accuracy doesn't matter too much, and if they're not being used frequently. I've had my Harbor Freight ones since roughly 2008, and they still work fine.

Yeah I'll probably go that route. I'm not a machinist. I just need to get in the ball park. Thanks for the link. I'll order one now.

If you want to save some time and $, cut a piece of paper and wrap it around the tube and mark it to get the circumference. Unwrap it an measure it, divide by 3.14 and you have your diameter.

I had gold Zokes on my 2005 TE510 but they had machined and anodized lower mounts at the bottom of the tubes. Like these
