CRF100F 2008 Fork Stem Stop Repair

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks:

My son wrecked his 2008 CRF100F, bent the forks and smashed the stem stop.  I had a welding shop add some metal to build it back up and the guy who did it added a whole lot and now I have to grind it down to the proper size.  Does anybody know the outside dimensions of the stop (width)?

Thanks

I welded a solid slug on to make the same repair. I just used a die grinder to leave about 1/4" between the fork leg and fuel tank. I also tried to have the contact area as large as possible to keep it from wearing much. Bit of hammer finish paint matched up well enough. Been working well for several years.

Thanks.  That involves reassembling first to check clearances which I was trying to avoid.  Good point though that the point of the stop is to assure that, so I can work it from that angle.

Much appreciated.
