I am from Sydney Australia,
And own a 1982 Suzuki Katana 7/11.
Noticed you have fork extensions.
Am trying to fit 07 Bandit 1250 forks to my spare Kat and maybe those fork extensions might be a fit.
Can you tell me what size they are and the thread pitch as well. My forks are 43mm...
How much, all in would a set of USD forks cost, inc wheel, disc caliper etc off a KTM640 supermoto/enduro and everything I need to fit it to my bike (RD04) and what could I get for my original forks, etc? Basically swap out the whole front end - labour aside - wopuld I break even?
Someone helpfully drove into me this week, they hit the very front of front wheel (from the side)

this photo was taken with the wheel...
I'm looking to get some stiffer springs for a project bike (with unknown forks) and it could get expensive if I end up buying lots of different springs & rates new. It's been a little while since I had a Honda Transalp but think they might be suitable, so anyone got any old Transalp fork...
Greetings from Denmark..

After a long search for KTM WP forks I ended up with 2 sets - 1 pair was attached to a very clean KTM 990 Adventure...so I sold the AT. Probably a mistake I know.
Today, I bumped in to its' re-incarnation!
Can anyone advise me as to which silver paint to use on the fork stanchions,should i wire brush them down paint and laquer? or is there any particular paint thats best? or any proven method of doing this job?
Just noticed an advert for a load of XLV750R parts. In Switzerland but he seems to have plastics, forks, tanks, etc.
Does anyone know how to remove the lower triple clamp from a set of ktm 950 forks? I have the bearings off but the steering tube is stuck solid and my finger cant't take another whack with the lump hammer. Also when I get this off how do I fit the adaptor back in?
Yet another bike forum on my list, well I have gone and done it, I have been mulling over it for a while should I shouldn't I get a dommie, so here I am looking and watching what all you guys are getting up to with your spanners, hammers, and welders etc etc, so as far as my own dommie is...
I was reading a ridiculously long thread on a Harley forum all about front suspension (as one does) and much was said about setting sag, after installing bespoke springs...as far as I'm aware, my 94/5' 600 has the long fork springs installed, ie there are no spacers between the spring tops and...

Hi, I've just bought a '93 xl600 transalp and when removing the front wheel found the nut to be very stiff and the wheel binding in the calipers. Took the wheel off and on replacing found that as I was tightening the axle it started to get very tight but the forks were not yet touching the wheel...
just if anyone is interested, over the winter i changed the complete front end of my TA700 with the USD front end from a 97/00 Aprila pegaso, and it was quite an easy swap, just had to change the bearings on the yoke shaft, modify the top yoke to accept the ignition switch & hiss, and fabricate...
Later in the year I will be rebuilding my front forks with progressive springs, in respect of the seals do I need to order one of these kits:
2 Oil Seals

2 Retaining Clips
2 Inner Bushes
2 Outer Bushes
Or can I just order the seals?
Also what fork oil...
So, I've got a Xrv750 - 96 and want to lift it and at the same time make it more offroad capable..

Re: RD07A (1998 W Vin No) Front Brakes Upgrade!
Been quite a while since my last post and, I dare to raise this old chestnut again! BTW, I have searched the forum but, I'm hoping there may be more recent research and actual upgrades that someone may be kind enough to advise on.
