Wrong forks?

Post by Dolts » Wed Nov 05, 2014 4:04 pm

I read that the l model has 51mm forks, and the h has 50mm. So I bought some 51mm renthal bars for my track project only to find that they are still loose when fully tightened! Is there a way of telling if I have h forks in bike?

Top of forks is 50mm on both models, it's the lower clamp that's different.

H forks are longer so on an L would stick through the top bridge a fair bit

L forks use a two piece muddy ( likely a one piece from another bike might fit )

Anodizing on H & L forks are different colours

That's the main ones

PS. Invest in Verniers , even cheap plastic ones for just general measuring of things - I have five of them !! :smt001
Nothing worse than having an H and not being able to scratch it !
