[email protected] Hi. Is is a plug and play taking a 916 front end on a 900ss /cr?

countcoupe The speedo issue is solved by buying an i.e speedo drive and swap the internals with your original speedo. Very easy. No spacer fabrication needed.

Had the forks on for a year and love them.

markg The speedo answer is to adapt the SS speedo drive to the wheel. IIRC it would take an offset engagement disc fabricated.

I have a set of Marchesini mag wheels that are designed for the SBK/later SS forks that I did the conversion measurements for several months ago. So I would either have to get SBK forks or have some machining done on the wheels. So far the answer has been made for me 'cause I'm working too many hours and trying to sort an electrical gremlin. Then I can get back on the wheel project.

To the OP, how are the forks working now for you?

duc96cr The superbike forks are cheaper on Ebay. You can still find the older caliper spacing and some come with triples. Will someone tell me what the solution is to the speedo drive issue is ? This is way too popular a conversion for someone not to have come up with a reasonable solution.

When a fitted the radial MC, I needed longer ones. I got a pair from JHP. Give them a call tomorrow

countcoupe Not a bad Idea. May have a look tomorrow. I think it would have to be to wide though. Had not thought of that so thanks.

ENGAKATS Maybe a pair of longer handlebars will allow you to put the grips-switches-MCs further out so they won't hit the instruments...

countcoupe Cheers Joel.

No way of chopping the handle bars to give me full lock!! It is a terminal problem!
With the 916 clip ons under the top clamp the clutch and front brake lever assembles hit the clocks where the hoses attach!

Floundering Looking good. Although it would look a little better with a red frame

I had the same problems with the clip ons and master cylinders. I liked the Swatt 2 1/2" riser ones that I used but I had to modify those just a tad so they wouldn't limit my turning radius. No way to modify the ones you bought? Shave them down a bit where they touch the frame?

I'm having no problems with switching the brake reservoir to a smaller clutch reservoir. Really gives you some room (if it's hitting the fairing) and was cheap.
