    Heyas, thinking of upgrading my old 40mm front with the late 43mm one - would the triples fit my frame?

    Cheers

    Yes, but mudguard mount, calipers and discs off the later forks will also be required.

    And, specifically, the 100 mm O.C. mounting spacing 1993-2007 calipers, or Sean Morley's kit for mounting the GSXR or Hyabusa calipers.

    The late FZR1000/early YZF1000 triple-opposed piston calipers will also fit.

    The trees bolt right on. But I'd buy a complete fork set with brake calipers and rotors. Plenty of upgrades available for the early forks too. The late model rotors bolt right on early wheels.
    I'm very satisfied with my early rebushed forks, Gold Valve Emulators, extra brace, and Nissin 4 pot calipers. Early fork bushings are getting hard to find.
