    Radial forks

    Has anyone used forks that have radial brakes? All I've seen have been axial brakes off of earlier milles.

    They wont fit the triples, the gen2 radial showas are different diameter to the gen 1 showas. im not sating it cant be done but some shims and machining would be required. Also the radial set up of the gen2 bikes is 5mm wider on the brake discs. so youd need the 2.5mm spacers to push your discs out.

    Everything is possible its just how much work your prepared to do.

    Thanks. That explains it. I once put crf 450 usd forks on an older xr650r. Never again... Spacers and machining everywhere..
