Anyone have a DOHC 750 and a ruler???
« on: December 30, 2012, 02:41:02 AM »
I was wondering if anyone could help me out.  I'm chasing a couple of measurements of the front end of a DOHC 750.  The 2 measurements I'm looking for are from the centre of the front axel to the centre of the lower caliper bolt hole on the leg, and also the distance between the caliper mount bolt holes, centre to centre.  If you can provide these measurements it would be greatly appreciated.  ;D

Cliff, you shouldn't need to pull it apart, all I'm after is a near enough measurement to know I'm not barking up the wrong tree.  If you could please measure the points in the picture I have marked below it would be greatly appreciated. ;D

I've got it, they are 65mm between the caliper mounts and 65mm between the axel centre and lower caliper bolt, exactly what I need ;D
