got an offer for a set of 92 kawasaki ninja forks.... really goddamn cheap. but will they fit into my stock xs triple trees? figured i would ask you gentlemen first. gonna be a low bike... and also using a 21" front wheel. i just need to know if they will fit, because i dont want to fuck with the trees.

if need be i can probably pick up the triple trees that go with the forks... but how would that fit on the xs?:banghead: i need to go low and i love the idea... i just dont want to fuck up a wet dream.

I dont know the answer but here is a possible solution, if the forks your wanting are reasonably close to you, get a cheap micrometer and measure the od of your existing forks and then go mic the others, as long as they are the same size diameter they will work, I have honda 929 forks on my gs750, thats how I found out my question if they would fit or not.

Ninja 250 Forks were 35MM at some point, so they may bolt right into later XS trees...

if you don't have calipers you can wrap a tape measure around the fork tube ( be sure to read it as accuratley as possible) then divide that measurement by 3.14, if you need to convert your fractions into decimals, then just divide your top fractional number by the bottom one, then multiply that by 25.4 and you will have the fork diamater in mm's. clear as mud right?

How low are you trying to get this xs? I'm at 27-1/4" from the ground to the bottom of my neck. Put my frame about 4" off the ground. Probably actually a little less than that.
