Hey there, What steering stems will match up with the 78/79 frames? I would rather not have to go through the cutting and rewelding process. I have some extra 1200 bandit forks (43mm) but the stem needs to be machined and the local guy is backed up job wise. The bearings match but the bandit stem is about 1" too long. Thanks in advance.

I have GSXR750 "blue" forks from a (93 or a 94?) model on my '79 GS1000. I would imagine all the GSXR forks of that era that fit that size, including but not limited to the GSXR1100 and a few other GS models out there, you could bolt up a pretty nice modern spec front end with little hassle. The Bandit wheel I am pretty sure I've seen fit to modern GSXR USD's as well.




I'm sure someone with more knowledge will wander along soon enough though.

OK thanks. Did the stem bearings match up from the honda?
No, I had to do an internet search for some that would fit, found a lower that was a straight fit, but needed to make a "top hat" spacer to fit the top bearing.
