Stanchion Shortening


Recommended Posts

So, I've been given the task of fettling 2Smoke's LC into shape (..not sure what shape yet..) which runs FZR400 forks. They've always been about 30mm too long, so I made some 20mm spacers to fit internally which helped, except of course losing 20mm of travel means they now bottom out a bit soon.

So ideally I'd like to have the stanchions shortened.. chop the top off, rethread the inside. Can anyone out there do this for me?

Which FZR400 forks are they ??? 

3TJ are quite short, they're e 43mm dia, the calipers are 84mm bolt spacing.

There are earlier 38 and 41mm which are a bit longer they both use 100mm caliper bolt spacing.

I got Suspensionsmith to shorten a set of WP forks for my Mito, he did a few things that managed to keep the full OEM travel while making them a ridiculous 680mm long... It sometimes goes beyond just chopping and rethreading to keep it all working
