1985 Kx500 triple tree question

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. I'm new to tt and forums in general. My current project is a 85 Kx5. My plan is to race it next year as a supermoto in a vintage road racing club. As far as I can see no one is running a supermoto at all. I may not be very competitive but it will be different. I am able to run newer upside down forks. So here is the question: Does anyone know if the triple trees out of a 1999 kx250 will fit in my frame? If they will then I could use most 36mm usd more modern forks. I turn, I can get modern supermoto rotors, caliper ect. If the aforementioned triple trees won't fit; any suggestions as to what might? Help!

You may be in the same boat as KDX owners trying to switch to a KX front end.  The main thing is the steering stem has to be changed.  Read up on KDX fork / front end swaps.
