1000S fork measurement

Does anyone have or can measure the distance from the underside of the lower yoke to the centre of the axle on a standard F41000S with the forks extended, bike on frame stand.

I have aftermarket fork lowers so the the measuremet shown in the manual of 172mm to the end of the fork outer doesn't help...

I could measure my SPR for you..... aren't they basically the same forks?

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Thanks but I thought the front end geometry was different on the 750 ?

I guess if the forks are the same length and the measurement in the manual from the lower clamp to the fork casing is the the same then it should be ok.

I am not near the manuals at the moment so cant tell....

I'll go down to the workshop and get you a measurement.... just in case. It will be later today.

Under side of yoke to axle center. Frame geometry should not be a factor in this measurement, but fork tube height in clamps would be, so I'll let you know where mine is set.

MY SPR measurements:

Underside of lower yoke (outer edge) to axle center = 40.64 cm

Forks extended above upper yoke 3 lines at highest point of yoke, 23 mm from top of cap edge to lowest part of yoke at outer edge.

Hope that helps.

"Thanks but I thought the front end geometry was different on the 750 "

That's correct, but that is because the 750 uses a different steering head bearing insert casing from the 1000's.. Some people like to install the 750 insert casing in their F4 1000 to slightly alter the steering geometry and apparently improve handling.

There's a blast from the past !
The gap between the wheel and nose cone has always niggled me..

I dropped the front about 10mm after fitting the radial fork conversions I got from you years back but now its in bits next to another one (an 'R') it still looks odd.

I did find some info somewhere that said those fork lowers were actually 10 or 15mm different but cant find the link any more.

Are you saying then that the 750 fork dimension would be the same as the 1000S or hold on for a 1000S measurement ?

Next time your down this way - pop in !

Cheers
Adam
