    Honda frame component experts here...?


    I'm going to "Dual-Sport" that HawK GT that I cannot seem to sell...

    I will certainly need a little bit more travel up front. Soes anyone here know that "What fits what" of Honda...?

    I'm thinking an XR fork would work but again, I'm not the part guy. Would be nice to retain the trees and swap legs..

    Thanks,
    Rob

    41mm fork legs. I bet an XR would bolt up. What are you gonna do about rubber in the year?

    I have to believe that TKC-80's come in that size... I'll go look.

    Why, has someone there done this...?

    Nope but I do know someone DS'd a Monster.

    I would think almost any Honda set of forks/ triples etc would bolt right up... really curious to see it come together. Keep us posted over at Honda Hawk GT Forum :: Index

    Yeah, I have lots of homework to do, fork length and shock being obviously the biggest steps. I have the XR to take measurements from. I will not need that much travel but good for reference points and all that.
    Perhaps walk around the dealeds floors with a tape measure looking at DLs and GS's... that'll drive 'em nuts...

    Keep you posted.
