    Definative Fork Swap Chart

    Tired of seeing multiple threads asking the same questions re fork/wheel/caliper swaps so I'm trying to compile a chart with all the info on it.

    So please only post factual info based on your own measurements.

    Lots of gaps so need an input for you guys.

    Still not sure how to address the issues of spacers for different combinations or how to tabulate them.

    This is the first shot across the bows, so feel free to comment on my headings/data and let me know what else needs to go in etc

    I'll update the chart every now and again

    Dunx75, The Ring-In and Roundy like this.

    Excellent

    I'll pin this in the frequent mods forum when you've filled in the blanks.

    How would the disks be offset by 1mm on the K3/K4, I had a quick look on mine and couldn't see anything obvious

    K3 M/C diameter = 14mm (K4 too I guess)

    K3 Rake and Trail (as per manual) 23.5/91mm (K4 too I guess)
    TLS Rake and Trail (as per manual) 23.7/94.5mm
    TLR Rake and Trail (as per manual) 23/90.6mm

    The Busa had conventional 6 pot Tokico calipers.

    (and as you add them to the chart it'll look like we're giving answers to info you already have )

    It was something Les spotted, either the rotors are thinner or the carrier is offset

    I've added your bits

    Still open to suggestions on that one MR_Korrupt

    When all the box's are filled in it should be possible to work out what spacers are needed from the numbers etc

    I could list a couple of the popular conversions, but once you get to K5 onwards where the spindle design changes it gets complicated.
