Ok I think I may change the front end of my Thunderace project, I'm just weighing up options now, I like the std front end but on my previous Ace I fitted a YZF750 front end and it looked good.

As YZF750 front ends are now like rocking horse manure, what other front end could I fit that requires, well no work to fit with the exception of new bearings like the 750 did, literally a straight swap.

I dont know if I can be bothered to start fabricating new stuff just to get a set up Uppies to fit my Ace

Ohlins are way out of reach for me :-( would be cool though!

Any ideas?

All the fzr1000 model front ends are interchangeable between the R, RU and later foxeye model's. Maybe these would fit an ace. I know the later 94/95 fzr1000 had a thicker 43mm fork and the same front wheel as the ace with the thicker 22mm axle, up from the earlier 17mm. Shouldn't be an issue finding an fzr1000 front end

Cheers guys, I'm a couple of months from buying a front end (thats if I decide to go down that route) but I'm always confused why people sell just the bottom yolk and not the both top and bottom together, am I missing something?
