Fork leg dimensions ....1991 vs. 2001??

Recommended Posts

Are the 2001 traditional fork legs 43mm also??

The 1991 forks I have are 43mm and I was wondering if a set of forks from a 2001 would be the same dimension and slide in without mucking around with my triple trees which are fine.

I suspect one of my current 1991 legs may be slightly bent as it has new seals/correct oil,etc but has a pretty bad stiction problem.

Also have a buddy with a 1990 KDX-200 whose rear wheel and hub are pretty much trashed.......will a 2001 KDX-200 wheel convert onto his 1990??

Thanks.

The 2001 has 46mm legs. In 2002 they went to 48mm. If you swap clamps, wheels and brakes you can use any of them. The stem may need to be changed.
