another forking convertion LOL

Post by kinkyfreestyler » Wed Jun 05, 2019 12:55 am

Hi could some one please tell me the full extended length of a kr1 fork ,top to centre of the axle , thanks .

I have done a swop for a set of zxr 400 l forks and can't remember the length of the originals ! its so I can get a base setting for how much I need to slip through the top yoke.

Also what amount do you have popping out the top yoke ? I know what the manual says , but most of you will have strayed from that , so what do YOU run ?

thanks guys
s**t happens get over it

722 mm, coincidentally (or not so coincidentally) the same as Suzuki RGV250 vj22 fork legs.

The manual says 10mm from top of yolk to top of the fork tube.

I have ZXR400L forks in my KR1 running an RGV swinging arm and 17" back wheel and I've pulled them through the yokes by 10mm to get it to hold a line, but may yet go a little further...
