Diameter of crud protector please
« on: Thursday, 01 April 2021, 10:29 pm »
Hi All

Can anyone tell me the outer diameter of the top of the fork tube, where the crud protector sits?
The Suzuki one is a bit bigger than the one one on my Honda so if the diameter is the same I was thinking of putting Suzuki ones on..

The part I am on about is number 23 on here..

@Speedy1959
It looks like it's 64mm I.d.
The protector bit is 52mm wide at the bottom and 44mm at the top .
It's 58mm from the level of the forkseal cover of that makes sense and a total of 80mm high.
Hope this helps buddy.

Seth
My actual fork diameter where the crud protector goes is 63mm
What's the alloy diameter on your fork leg?

Thanks once again for your expertise (even though I have a Honda).

@seth K5 on 65mm - measured with vernier also.
There is a groove in the fork leg where the protector goes - I didn't measure that...
