If Twas me, and I had a high end tank coming I'd reinforce the puny fork stops on the frame.

I wasn't aware that the fork stops were a problem, these were nice and straight, would be interested to know thoughts on this? :oops:

I have seen the stops on the lower cast aluminum triple tree get battered away causing the fork tube to contact the tank.I have yet to see the welded steel stops on the frame being a problem on the oif BSA's.
