can someone measure and tell me the length of rc 51 forks from axle c/l to top cap?
It was not meant to be a derogatory/challenging question. It was just a question. Is it for the performance? There are ways to get the 919 forks to work very well for a reasonable sum. Or is it for the bling and building experience. Either is OK.
FYI Motogypsy has a set of SP1 forks with ohlins internals on Ebay for a good price.
I am planning on putting a set of AK20's in my 919 forks and an F3 FOX double clicker on the back.
Nice work. I like the radial adapters are those the ones from Ben (rc51parts.com)?
I find this really interesting.:thumbup1:hondad, thanks
the reason for the question is this. with the availability of rc51 forks becoming harder to find at decent prices. i've been looking at alternative usd forks to use for the 919.
what i've found is 2006-2007 gsx-r 750 inverted forks are black,738 mm long from axle c/l to top cap, and have 1000 kg/mm springs from the factory.
now i just need to find the offset #'s for the rc51 clamps.
btw the gsxr 750 bottom clamp has a 28 mm bore for the head tube so if by some strange chance the offset and the widths were the same that would be alot easier for the swap guys to bore the hole to 29 mm than what they are doing now with the rc51 triples.
also the front wheel is a 3 spoke that is close to the 919 design but has 310 mm radial brakes.
just looking at options
that's like 3/4" shorter than stock 919 forks,which will shorten trail a bit.BTW........Rc51/929/954 offset are all 30mm.
