46mm Fork Tubes . . for XR600 USD Swap .

Recommended Posts

Hello all, First post !

Im doing a USD swap and I ran into a dilemma that turned out to be quite costly guessing, so, I'll see what you blokes have to say about the issue. 

 

I have a set of Triple Clamps that i bought off a fellow on Craigslist that where made to fit to the XR600 frame and have 46mm Clamps, yay, so.. That part is solved, but the hard part now is finding a pair of forks to fit it. 

 

So after a little research I ordered a full 1998 YZ125 Front end w/ Wheel .

It gets here and I try to fit it. Bottom clamp goes over the first clamp point on the tubes, all is well ... but

Once i hit the clamping area where the Lower Triple to clamps too, the fork tube taper to a much much bigger OD size than the 46mm lower clamp. 

 

..

 

 

So.. With that. 

What Forks are there that are 46mm at the Top clamp and Bottom .?

The only thing that is 46mm is the chrome shaft...

Yeah, Ive been doing some measuring and came to that conclusion too .

I guess it need the forks to have the same OD at both the top and bottom clamps.

Around 50-52mm @ each clamping point .

What kind of forks did the guy with the triple clamps have on the bike? Would probably be easier to mod a pair of triple clamps to fit the bike than find forks to match your clamps.
