2000 Katana 750 (aka, Bandit?) front end on a GS550E
« on: Jan 30, 2018, 06:34:28 »
While I'm a fan of updated, modern suspension and brakes, I kind of prefer the right side up forks.
 I'll be getting my hands on a 2000 Katana 750 donor bike. From what I've read, they frame and suspension is essentially the same as the Bandit, at least up until '98. I mention that because the Bandit upper triple uses handle bars.
 These are 41mm forks with 4 way rebound dampening adjustment. The bike had a 33 steering angle. Caster 25 30'.

 I would love to use this front end on my '80 GS550E. Does anyone have a little info on making these work? Are there other triples that would work better? The handle bar mounts would be easy to do.
