It's too bad that all the motorcycles you own need upgrades and modifications to make them good.

Id like to keep the bike close to the original geometry and seat height. Looks like the 1150 item is only a touch longer than the original paralever.

Whats your plan re. suspension height?
WP 50's are 2.5" longer between the lower steering stem bearing and the axle. Raising the rear the same amount should be straight forward with the 1150 swingarm and a suitable shock.

Hiya Lornce,

FYI, HPMGuy is doing another run of the custom R-Dubb triples for adapting the WP's to BMW's if you are interested...

What are the critical geometry dimensions specific to his pieces?

Particularly, trail at various rake angles?

I'd say to go check that original R-Dubb thread.. or ask R-Dubb.

I waded through some of that thread but didn't actually discover much of use.

Here is the forerunner to that thread... looks to be all about the design of the triples that went into production..

We only need one more buyer for WP 50mm's for HPMGuy to do the run..
