Default Steering Stem Lenght??

Is there a chart with steering stem lengths?
I found ones for bearing sizes, and fork diameters, but nothing for steering stem lengths.

I have a little EX500 with a crashed front end, and a CBR600RR front end just sitting in the garage.
The Kawasaki triple tree is made out of steel and the stem is welded in, but he Honda triple tree is aluminum, and the stem is pressed in, so it doesnít seem like Iíll be able to just swap the stems and re-weld it back in. I was hoping to see if thereís another bike out there that has a triple that fits CBR forks and has a long enough stem to mount on a ninja frame.

you could have the cbr stem cut and lengthened, or have take it to a machinist and pay them to make a longer stem.

The ex500 stem is welded at the bottom but you can grind that weld down and then press the stem out.

You may be able to just press the ex500 stem into the CBR lower triple after that but obviously, measure first before you try to press it in.

Then you may have to either widen the hole for the stem for the top triple or make a collar for the top triple to fit the hole.

I would have went that route but I didn't have an ex500 triple when i did mine.
