GT750 A Fork Spring length

Post by NeilBevan »

Hi all, does anyone know the actual length of the GT750 A fork springs.

I have ordered some progressive springs... they say they dont need a spacer for any year of GT750... but I am unsure, as others state that spacers may be needed.

Many thanks In advance.

I can't remember the difference in length, but when I fitted a set of progressive springs, I had to use PVC tube spacers to set sag.

IIRC, the box said that they were to fit an HD Sportster, so don't tell anyone about that.....

And if you have the forks apart, it's a good opportunity to fit a pair of Cartridge emulators. They are available from YSS, or Race Tech or cheaper from MikesXS https://www.mikesxs.net/yamaha-xs650-da ... 00-00.html

You need an adapter to fit them, but that's just a simple alloy tube.
