    Ohlin's fork to base model?

    Doubtless this has been asked before but wondered how difficult it is to fit the Ohlins fork to the base non Factory models? straight swop or any diference with the yokes?

    yep, you'll need yokes and clip ons due to the larger diameter ohlins fork tubes. Also later model 2004> factory's have radial brakes so if yours is a 2004 base model you'll need radial brake calipers too

    other way round Legs buddy - Showas are 53mm and Ohlins are 51mm - but yep as said, you'll need yoke, clip-ons and if converting to Radial calipers then calipers as well as spacers for discs (this is if yours are currently Axial).
