How do I shorten my forks

3439 Views 25 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  murrayf
I have the bike sitting where I want, but to do so, the fork tubes are pushed through the triple trees by about 8 inches (I've not actually measured). I know people machine forks, but I'm not sure where to start. Maybe I just replace them with new shorter forks that fit these trees. Any advice, links, etc

Remember: If form follows function it will always look right and work right but if function follows form it will almost never work right or look right.

Or maybe they needed the extra length to provide adequate support with sufficient travel without requiring excessive air pressure.
