    Don't think so, never seen anybody doing them, would be a fair bit of engineering to get them to line up I know when you do a full fork conversion you need spacers for the brake discs to line up correctly brackets would make it more awkward again the axial ones bolt through the side of the forks where the radial ones bolt through the calipers into the forks if you get me.

    Typical I had it as a watched item on eBay and it's gone..I'll track it down

    They were an italian company and the cost was about 130 for a pair of brackets

    just to say many thanks to all the info given the axial to radial brackets came to a end as they where a bit vague on the application so have bought some radial forks with calipers yolks and spindle and they look amazing am now looking for a ohlins shock and would like to ask what years fit straight of so i know what to look for thanks trigger

    What year bike is it?

    As I don't know see the info below

    If you buy a 98-00 shock you need the 98-00 dogbone and triangle the same for an 01-03 shock that needs 01-03 dogbone and triangles.

    Note they are not special for ohlins shocks so any of the right year fit.

    People have fitted gen2 shocks and even rsv4

    I run a nitron track shock personally on the mille and an ohlins on the falco ....if buying a secondhand shock you may to price in a service/rebuild and possibly a new spring to suit you.

    Cuzza on rsvr.net has a shock coming up for sale pretty soon serviced 5 trackday ago ..so maybe chase him up?
