ensions from GL1000 front end needed.

Post by Staffy »

I need some dimesnions of a GL1000 front end as points of comparison for a front end convesrion on a CX500. I'm looking for the 78-79 model specifically which had a comstar front wheel fitted.

I need the following:
  • axle diameter where the axle meets the bearing
    distance from one side of the hub to the next of the front wheel, including and excluding the speedo drive
    distance between fender bolts on each fork and across forks
    length of pivot between triple trees
    distance from disc to disc
    pivot diameter
    any other dimesnions that might be useful for someone considering using this front end on a different bike
I've been digging about and can' seem to find any of these dimensions anywhere. Even better would be if measurements were in millimeters, centimeters, etc as I don't speak inches very well.
