fork legs

Postby daveymac55 » Sun May 20, 2018 9:36 am

Hello everybody, just a quick question for you, on my 1998 K1200RS what diameter are the fork stanchions? I'm debating mounting a small driving/spotlight on each leg and was curious what size clamp O should get, many thanks, David

That should read "size clamp I should get" early Sunday fat finger syndrome

Hi, Davy
If you haven't got a vernier caliper to measure your fork legs, use a measuring tape ( or a piece of string) around your fork
and multiply the length by 7/22 to get the diameter.
Ride safe

Hi Jim,
Thank you for that information, it worked a treat! Somewhere in the depths of my mind I knew there was a mathematical solution, but like so many things it was long forgotten.
Appreciate your time mon ami, kind regards,
Davy
