1977 BMW R100/7 Sarcoplasmic Cow Hellride.
i feel it would probobly only be an issue if it was run loose the 4 nuts
and of course it would pretty obvious when apart
if you are already final assembled just for curuiiosity see if there is any gap
try a .001'' feeler gauge,see if it will go in at various flange locations
The front end has been completed. The seals needed replacing and I got the extensions from XB, so they came apart and went back together. The VZ triple, with its lazy offset, is gone and now we're back to a full TL1000r front end. It took a little more steering stem gymnastics to make it all work out. The bike should be sportier with this configuration and comes with plenty of lean.
obviously you have no issues with these being the top support, but it's not something i'd really considered before. how tight do you do them in the top of the fork tube? would you expect any flex in the threaded joint?

the 4 1/4''-20tpi shcs i put in tight as i dared and fixed them with redlocker
it is a very strong jont where the extension joins cap
yes i have been thinking of that when used as clipon high mounts the cap threaded joint is clamped by the triple,same as when used as a stock setup
this effectively prevents any squirming around because the threaded cap on these forks are from my expeerience a nice class a threaded joint not sloppy
i do believe the outer tube needs help after warshing the idea around and when miller posted up progress with fitting them i figured on a suggestion
i think a very close fitting sleave with .098'' wall thickness out of steel or ss 1-1/8'' long and a near perfect fit bonded in place with red loctite
it may be totally uneeded but it is a very simple thing to fab and it def will help keep unclamped tube top from belling
the bottom triple is 5mm larger for the tube fatness down there
going 2.5 mm wall thickness still maintains ease of removing bottom triple
it could be made fgrom the same material a fork part
it is a very high sttrength allow on every one i have turned in the lathe
fitting the sleave with loctite allows easy removal
its lovely stock to turn in the lathe upsidowner forks everybody should have some

I always have to read your posts like 5 times to get the gist. LOL
Small victory for me by now finally having the TL top triple is being able to mount my key switch on the tree. I don't like the BMW headlight mount and I didn't like my decision to mount it on the side cover. The side cover had it's advantage in that it took less wire to get to the battery and such, but the location was a little weird. This makes more sense.
thats very nice
bitchen a hybrid that is not like the exonn valdeez in curves

i wouldnt try to tell you how to do it,but thats the way ide do it
you be all like
by the way have you noticed how trick my airslead is ?
I'm going to the Flanders Euro low bars and I machined some caps for the fork extensions out of delrin. I may cast these in urethane, though they should be fine as they are.
You do some nice work. BTW, what is the ctr to ctr on TL forks? I have some GSXR in 207 and 214mm widths and a couple of odd ones that I suspect may be from a TL
Thanks, Teazer. I assume you mean the triple measurements? The forks themselves are 50mm top and 55mm bottom at the trees, which makes them different from the 600 and 750. The Hayabusa and the K9/K10 1000 share these measurements, so you may be able to at least eliminate or confirm the 600/750 and the other 1000s.
