Katana fork swap

Discussion in 'The Garage' started by btrac11, May 29, 2013.

  1. Headlight mounted with original xs fork/headlight bracket. New forks are larger diameter and had to modify the bracket to slide over the new forks. Can't remember if there was a seam on the mount that I split apart to make it fit the larger forks or if I had to cut it.

  2. Just a heads up. Will have to figure out a new speedo setup for this swap as the speedo runs off the front xs wheel. The katanas had an electronic speed sensor on the rear. I am planning on making a mount for my phone and using an app that is fairly accurate.
  3. Thats awesome, thanks for the info. I love my classic looks, and i feel some new fork springs in my 34mm forks would be a great update. But im not ruling this out either, although id have to find a rear drum mag.
