EML leading link fork

Postby Jonas.L.Svensson » Thu Oct 23, 2014 7:06 am



Hi everybody!
New to this forum.
I have an EML leading link fork for my old GL1100, will it fit on my GL1500 (I know I will have to fix the diameter of "forklegs") but the trail and rake? :roll:
Anybody who knows?? :?:
Would be great to be able to use my old fork instead of buyin a new one... :D

Rake on GL1100's is 29.17 degrees, and trail is 134mm (132mm on 82 and 83). Rake on GL1500 is 30 degrees, and trail significantly shorter at 111mm. So you'll have some issues there.

Far more important is the load - the GL1100 is around 590 lbs dry, but the GL1500 is almost 800 lbs dry.
