rsv millie forks?

Post by jmacdwlr on Sat 18 May 2013, 09:51

Hi all after a bit of advice starting first custom build with a RRW base in next couple of weeks and had set myself on a USD RR2 front end which I have however I came accross a front end from a RSV millie (yokes,forks,calipers) that was at a mad price so had to have it but unsure on getting it to fit I have been told the basics of prob get stem pushed out of the RR2 yoke and have it altered and put into the other yokes is this right and does anyone know a good place that does this? Project in general is an RRW frame and low mileage engine, vfr800 swing arm and wheel, 2004 R1 tail unit with internal exhausts, custom fairings.

They will be great, I'm tempted to go that route myself one day. Can't offer any advise but any machine shop would should be able to do the stem mods. What's the width of the yokes the same as the blade or wider?

Cheers cabbie that's what I was thinking dont really want to knacker up my spare rr2 yoke been having a play around today like a big jigsaw come up against first issue which is mounting points are about two inches across on frame for shock mounting point on a cb1000 swing arm so off to pick ally welders brains tomorrow to see if he can
Move mount points or if that would leave it to weak maybe take out bar and fabricate a complete new bar for frame?
