Turned down Busa forks for DME Offset triple trees?
« on: October 05, 2018, 11:11:10 PM »
Hi there,
does enyone know if i could mashine down the Gen2 front forks to 52mm like Gsxr 1000 forks to use with DME offset clamps that is 50mm top and 52mm down?
Is it safe? Or i have to buy and turn down Gsxr forks?
Gen2 Busa is 50mm O.D. top and 55mm down
Gsxr 1000 2006 is 50mm O.D. top and 54mm down.
Gsxr 1000 2007 is 50mm O.D. top and 56mm down.
But i don 't know ife they have the same inside diameter...

I have 50/52mm gen2 forks on my prostreet Hayabusa. They are good for at least 6.76 ET and 216mph out back.
Any day on a motorcycle like this that ends just needing parts and labor is a good day.
