F3 (675) some fork dimensions?

Hi All,
I noticed in another thread that the 675 has 50mm fork tubes. IF someone could tell me the fork center to center distance and the offset I would greatly appreciate it.
Offset looks like this.


cheers

F3 has 43mm lower fork tubes I think. Not sure about the offset.

Thanks for the reply PT. The stanchion diameter is not important to me because this project is made of various bits and pieces. From what I know so far I think the F3/675 top clamp might be a perfect fit if it has a 210mm center to center and 30mm offset. It is a bit difficult to verify this of course and hence my post.
cheers

The upper tubes where the top clamp and clip-ons mount is in fact 50mm. I have a complete set of F3 triples on hand and could check the numbers for you.

I can't remember what the stock offset or center to center distance is. I'll check tonight.

The top clamp might be a perfect fit for what?

At a quick measure in the dark, with the torch held between my teeth, 30mm offset looks about right. Center to center is 205mm. 2012 675 F3.

We're all here, but we're not all there.

Thanks D23, it would be much appreciated by a fellow motorcyclist. At the risk of being branded a heretic, it is for my project Yamaha FZR400 that I am modelling on the R7. Well trying to. I live in Thailand so money is scarce and big bikes are both rare and hideously expensive. The forks and lower triple come from two different model of R1, so that I could keep the same geometry as original. I didn't want to use the hideous Yamaha top clamp with its stupid double nut, and I had no need of the ignition switch because I have an RFID unit. And finally to accommodate the MV/Ducati method of clamped nut I used a custom made titanium stem. So the big hope is that the MV part fits otherwise it is back to drawing the top triple.
cheers

@Gregostini looks like you are right. Carpimoto answered a message I sent them with the same dimensions as you. Oh well
