Okay here goes for a technical question

Both of my TZ250's are only a year apart, yet someone has fitted a later rear caliper which runs under the rear spindle, rather than the correct for year over the rear spindle. So the question is this: Why did Yamaha see fit to change the design? I had thought that it was to make wheel change and pad change easier, but it seems to make no difference. It is also heavier being underlung as the bike is fitted with a torque rod. I have also yet to see a straight torque arm as they always seem to get bent in the event of an off..

The library photos below show what I mean..






This happened on the MX bikes of the time as well, and the reason ,as i understood it , was to allow the suspension to move more freely under braking , which certainly helped the MX bikes of the time that had rear drums . I think that it stopped the braking resistance force being applied to the swingarm , and transferred it to the rear of the frame. I know it made the bike more controllable (with a drum) on braking bumps , but now all bikes have reverted to the slot & peg setup on the swing arm. Maybe it was just the fashion of the time.

I've allways wondered what happened to my TZ250B and if it's still being raced.
I stamped my own engine and frame number on it 28*****IW so if anyone know's it's where abouts, let me know.
