CB750 Fork brace.

Post by Ol Fart » Sat Dec 05, 2009 5:48 pm

I bought a fork brace for the 750/4 from the USA.
The centres on the brace are 182 mm. My forks are 183 c/c
The vendor says all his stock of these braces are at 182 mm.
does any body have an explanation that doesnt sound like a poor excuse?

and does anybody have a fork brace laying around they no longer want ?

According to this http://pmiusa.net/FFTP/fork%20brace%20dimensions.pdf very valuable site, they are 182mm centres, are you sure your front end is 750 onda?

If not get one made!!

Cheers :D

Machine 1mm off your front wheel spacers. May not be stock wheel/axle/bushes/etc etc. Maybe your fork stanchions are bowed/bent. One millimetre isn't much, maybe your not holding your tongue right. :shock:

I saw that list of yours Shaun, it didnt list a 1974 750. My verniers show it as 183mm.
The one I bought is certainly 1 mm shy.
I'm gunna make one unless OBG can find his old one.
Thanks mate

Yes, I bought one off Ken and I had whole front end thing Chromed, put the whole front end together and forgot the fit the freaking fork brace. I will put it on when I do the next session on the bike. I have so much work on at the moment, I just cant find the time. My 83 year old mother had a look at the progress the other day told me to pull a finger out. She wants to see it finished before too much time passes.
