Think of any of the motocross bikes.You will fit the cr front ends but it is also best to change the brake master cyl. at the same time.Check the weight of the exchange bike to get it pretty close to yours.Spring sizes and weights will then give you an upgrade ride and you dont have to play around with them too much.Look in the 250 2 stroke range first.Plenty of them around and the weight is similar.Hope this helps you

    No its not a joke or what!!!!The changes I told you is a very common thing.You wont be the first.I gave you the advice you needed to hear and what is the normal for this change over.And by the way.I said"think of any of the moto x bikes and then CR's".NOT any bike that will fit.Sorry you didn't like my answer.Plenty of others read it and did like it.Goodbye

    Yeh Me again.I can't leave you hanging.The size of the triple clamps is what you have to look at.Most of the honda mx bikes will fit.Like I said before.Go for a bike with a similar weight and you don't have to stuff around with changing springs or oil weights.Mx bikes have good suspension over a trail bike like an xl or enduro bike like an xr.The size of the suspension tubes is what to look for.It may even be a different brand of bike.It doesn't matter.As long as the tubes are the same size,they slide right in.Xr's can always do with 1 or 2 inches lift in the front to make them handle so much better.Hope I helped this time

Coincidently I am trying to do the same thing. Your best bet is to find a bike just for some parts off of ebay or trading post. etc. xr250 front fronts bolt straight onto the headset of an xr200, apparently year difference is no problem. This way you get the disc brake and the stiffer forks. Hope this is want you need. Cheers.

My Mtb has rear disc brake mounts but not on the fork. Is there a way around this? I live in a climate where weather is not my friend. Its either raining or snowing so I'm looking to change it.


a new fork is the answer but if the cost is prohibitive then there may be an engineering shop welding shop) that could weld the bracket to the existing forks
it will put you in a situation as you may have to buy the gear so that the shop can see what to do and the bracket necessary for the job
as most bikes utilize a common fork, you may get a suitable second hand fork from e-bay, gumtree or the local garage sales

Ive got a gl1100 1982 with air front suspension q-what is the best way to change the front fork to a convensional spring fork and what forks would be the best ?


Hello and thanks for the question,
Your 1982 GL1100 has air assist type of suspension. It has springs in the front as well as the air pressure. This is a heavy bike and the front forks are marginal at best. I have had great results from installing progressive suspension springs and moving up to a heavier fork oil (20wt ) to keep the bike from diving so far during braking.

www.progressivesuspension.com

You should look at having the forks rebuilt with these parts and you will find that the bike handles much better than before.
The springs that are in the bike are old now and should be updated with new style parts.

Thanks and I hope that this helps.

Front end vibration


One thing you could try is a "fork brace" or what some people call a "tweek bar" that ties the two sliders together. This reduces the amount of flex in the front forks. We used to run them on our dirt bikes years ago. They do help stabilize the front end.

Also drop your front tire pressure to 30 psi and look for any unusual wear patterns on you tires such as cupping. Take the wheel off and have it spin balanced as well. You can also change the fork oil in your forks. I run PJ1 30 weight in my Wide Glide. It's a bit on the stiff side but it sure helped the handling as the bike no longer bounces and dives in the turns. I also got away from the Dunlop tires. I now run Metezler 880's and they seem to handle the turns better but I think the Dunlops had better braking characteristics.

Good Luck

Disc Brake


The teloscopic forks have mounts for disc brakes so you would need forks from a bike with disc brakes and the front tire with the rotor and caliper all off the same bike so it would all bolt up. Most forks are the same diameter but measure to make sure.

Front suspension to soft on mongoose xr-75 mountain bike


The front forks aren't adjustable, as you probably figured out. You can, however, get harder springs if the springs can be accessed at the top of the fork tube. If not, do what I did on my mountain bike. I bought a better pair of adjustable forks that I found on eBay. It will take a bit of investigation on your part regarding the dimensions of the forks, so you get the correct length and width where the forks fit onto the frame (and the overall desired fork length), but you'll be a lot happier with adjustables.
