View Full Version : 200x Fork tube and Triple clamp ?'s

01-26-2008, 10:05 PM
I'm new around here and am trying to do some investigative work before I start spending money on a project. Now i've searched the forum (and the internet) but having found the specific measurements of a 200x front end.

So i'm hopin someone on here can help me out and take some measurements off their 200x for me... here's what I'm looking for:

#1) The outside diameter and length of the 200x neck (or stem).
#2) The size if the stem bolt as well as the offset of the stem bolt on the triple clamp in relation to the fork tubes.
#3) The overall length of the fork tube.
#4) The diameter of the fork tube.
#5) The degree of "rake" on the forks.
#6) The diameter of the front axle bolt/pin.
#7) The distance between the forks (inside to inside) where the front hub mounts.

I know these are a lot of question but if anyone could help me out I'd really appreciate it!!! Thanks in advance.

Super90, Thanks so much for getting me those measurements! Its much appreciated.

Hey Blue,
Do you think it would be better just to stick with xr80 forks for suspended 70? I'm thinking that even though it may be a little cheaper to use a 200x front end, it may just be a little too big... opinions?

200x forks are a little big, but you could always cut the springs and lower it quite a bit.

200X forks are to long, but.............. some of our research
has lead to CR80s and KX80 with 33MM forks! That is the direction I am shooting for the other one in the "pile to be completed" out in the garage.

I recommend double checking before you buy, butt

CR80 84-86
KX80 83-85
KX65 00-07?
RM80 86-88
YZ80 83-92

the XR75/80 are 27mm
