    I need a big favor here, guys. If you have a Yamaha Blaster, could I have you take some measurements for me, please? I need some measurements of the front and rear suspension mounting points.

    If you want to help me out, let me know here (or PM me your e-mail address) and I'll e-mail you a picture or two of what measurements I need.

    THANKS!

    Used to race mine back in the day... but it's been sitting on jack stands for two years.

    Let me know what you need and I'll go measure.

    I put up some pictures of the measurements I need.
    See them here.

    I bought the front suspension of a Yamaha Blaster, and I'm using it in the build-up of an off-road go-kart. Problem is I need to know where to make the mounting points in order for the suspension geometry to be correct. The measurements don't need to be perfect, but I'd like to get them as close as possible.
    For the height and offset, bolt center-to-bolt center dimensions would be great. For the ones in the other picture, just describe them however you can, I should be able to figure out what you mean.
