I bought showa forks from RMZ 450 2008 and I have to say it's kinda tricky to do all measurments precisely...
Do you have any sketch or drawing for that or anybody else?pleeeeease?
I 've done drawing in Autocad, so I can get it machined, I just wanna make sure that it is correct and I will not have to do it again...simply I need to compare it with somebodys else drawing...
Thank you very much for any reply

just to remind you, Im fitting up a 96 CR250 front end to my AT

The CR stem is 4mm bigger in diameter than the AT stem

Original CR stem

Machined down to fit the AT bearings

Cutting the threads for the nuts

Done and the AT nuts fit, excellent

The stem will be pressed back into the triple clamps tomorrow, then Ive just got to wait till the forks come back from being revalved and sprung and we can bolt it onto the bike and sort out the steering stops and a plate to mount the ignition and sort out some sort of front mudguard.

I'd really like to still have a low front guard, any ideas for a low guard to suit USD forks ??
