Hi,

I'm wanting to fit the cg125 forks and it looks straight forward but all the references I see are for using lightweight yokes, My current bike has the heavyweight forks are these the same diameter for the stanchions or will it be different modifications.

Ideally I'd have wanted a 21" front wheel but I'd like to stick with a set up that will use existing stem and yokes if possible

Thanks

Hi Danny,

The Bantam Cub I bought used the Honda yokes with the Honda front forks....with a steering-head extension welded top and bottom on the Bantam frame to accept the longer Honda yoke stem. These extensions are probably top & bottom sections chopped off a Honda steering-head. I`ll not look closer at the job, until I get the grinder out to remove this butchery 😉

Cheers

Sounds interesting and horrific at the same time 😂

Hi bantammad ere just a point of interest I have used Suzuki TS front end in the past the only modification you have to overcome is the length of the steering stem has to be shortened also make steering head bearing adapters much like Blues modification l guess old grease monkeys rule happy days Les
