    CB1300 forks

    Just a thought...

    Does anybody know if you could use the fork internals and slides from a CBR and put them in CB1300 lowers?

    Obviously would need wheel, spindle etc from a CB1300 too.

    But this would then mean I could keep my andreani cartridges, keep the correct fork length, and have more options for better de-linked brakes

    Re: CB1300 forks

    The BB and the CB1300 both have damper rod forks that are secured by m8 bolts.
    They are both 43mm forks

    I would say there is a pretty good chance you could drop the andreani cartridges from BB forks in to the CB1300 forks and run them.

    That was my thinking, but that's about as far as my knowledge took me. Surely the fork lowers are all equal in the inside.

    Have you checked the length of the bushing? As you will probably know these changed on the Bird, the inj got a longer bushing to better resist the loadings. So whilst the Bird lowers look identical (as do the CB1300 and Bird) there may be subtle differences.

    There may be a mix'n'match solution or the Bird equipment may simply fit, I have no idea since I have never looked at CB1300 forks.

    IMHO the only real way you are going to find out is to get a CB1300 fork bottom and get the measuring tools out...… seems a feasible conversion to me but as always 'the devil is in the detail'.

    Second thought, is the spacing between the forks the same on CB1300 and Bird? If not you will run 'problems' here.

    Re: CB1300 forks

    I believe the spacing is the same, as the cb1300 top yoke is a perfect fit.

    I seem to remember someone posting on here that a cbr600f4 wheel is a direct swap with the bird, as they also have 43mm forks perhaps they would be a better candidate, at least then I wouldn't need a new wheel.

    The only reason I thought of the cb1300 is because I'm sure I read on here that there are certain 6 pot calipers that are a direct bolt on to them forks.

    I will keep my eyes open for a pair of either at a reasonable (cheap) price.
