Cr Fork install

Recommended Posts

I have my self a deal on a set of 1988 cr80 front forks. Will these mount right into an xr100's tripe tree ?

sorry if my post wasnt clear enough, stanchion size a measurement of the diameter of the upper fork tubes (stanchions), and on the XR100, that diameter is 27mm, meaning the holes in the triple trees are 27mm in diameter. So, with the CR80 forks having an upper tube diameter of 33 (i think), you will need new triple trees, or crowns.

yes. new triple trees. If i were you, i would do what i did. I switched the whole front suspension assembly from an 80. fork sliders, tubes, and triple trees. the only thing i had to modify was the fork bumpers, that stop the forks from turning too far and hitting the frame/gas tank
