List of Fork Tube Sizes, Neck Bearings, Axle Diameters

PostAuthor: Jake » Sun Oct 09, 2011 6:03 pm

Japanese Bike Rear Axle Diameters WM.pdf
My apologies for the long post of info, but it's a wealth of information I got from another site. My contribution is the manner in which it's laid out now. It's much easier to read.

It's much too long to post the info, so I've attached it in PDF format.

All Virago related sizes are in red.

Amazing List of Fork Tube Sizes, Neck Bearings, Axle Diameters.WMPDF.pdf


The following document may contain errors, especially those of other makes and models. I did my best to make some order out of a mess of running text, to make it easier to read and locate the XV information ( which is in red )

You can see what I had to work with HERE

Partzilla incorrectly lists the Quadboss Steering Bearing Kit #41-6238 (their part #77-416238) for the 81-83 Virago 750. However, it does fit many of the later models. The correct part# for 1st gen Viragos is #77-416228 which is an All Balls Racing kit #41-6228. Thanks to this list, I was able to confirm it. Hope this saves someone time and double shipping expense.

Hi Jake, just wanted to say that this was an invaluable resource which I used heaps when I was doing the research on my spoked wheel conversions. Also thought a post would bring it back to the top to remind folks that it was here, usefull for those wishing to retro fit front forks as we'll! Thanks again.

Everyone is welcome.

All I did was edit the list I found elsewhere on the web and made it easy to find the XV related sizes.

I'm glad there are those that get some use of it.

Over 140 downloads and only one complaint. Personally, I don't find it hard to read, that's why I did this way, unless you're using a phone.
