Default YZ Shock Linkage Interchangeability

Hey everyone, I have a 98 YZ 125 and I'm trying to change the linkage and swingarm bearings and everything. On the smaller, "L" shaped piece of the linkage I messed up the inside, scoring the walls pretty bad when I was trying to get the bearing out. My question is will an 01 YZ 125's linkage work with mine? They have different part numbers according the microfiches, but I think the actual swingarm and shock is the same. A guy on ebay has an 01's linkage for sale pretty cheap and he says it should fit 96-01 YZ 125s, 250s, and 400Fs. Anyone know for sure if I can get the 01 linkage on my 98? Thanks!

Thanks, I got an All Balls kit for both the swingarm and the linkage already though. I was trying to figure out if I could buy linkage from a different year and use it, but it turns out that 1998 was unique for YZs. All the other years have a year or two of interchangeability, but 98 is alone... so I have to find linkage from a 98 YZ 125, 250, or 400F if I want to use the bearing kit I already have. Luckily there's a linkage set from a 98 125 on ebay right now for pretty cheap, ends tomorrow so I think I got lucky. I'll just have to put my new bearings in that linkage and put it all back together. It's my fault for ruining my linkage though, so oh well. There are worse things to spend money on I suppose!
