PostSubject: VZ800 fork measurement   Tue Jan 22, 2013 5:26 pm

Does anyone know what the measurement is for the forks on a VZ800? I'm looking for turnsignal mounts and I don't know what size in mm I need. I haven't been able to find the information anywhere. Can anyone help? Thanks!

The measurements for bike sizes are across. not circumference, i.e. 1" bars =across the circle of the end of the bars, 2" forks = across the end of the fork leg, sorry I can't help with your bike though as I have a different model

Thank you! Do you know of any aftermarket turn signal mounts that work with the m50?

Yep, Exactly. Measured across (diameter). 5.4cm, i.e. 54mm. I think Alfie might have accidentally measured in inches. Some bikes have forks that are 55mm, which if you measured that in inches would be 2.17in. If you measured across and the forks were 21.7mm that would equal .85 inches and there's no way that the forks of any bike are only .85" in diameter.
