Hi. It has been a long time since I've been in this forum. I recently installed GSXR1100W inverted forks on my 1992 Katana 1100. As it turns out, the Katana ignition switch will not fit the GSXR upper triple. I bought the complete forks through ebay approximately 2 years ago. The seller claimed they are 1995 forks. After looking at the microfiche on www.ronayers.com , I'm not sure they are 1995 forks. They pass for the 93-94 forks as easily as the 95-98 forks. As it turns out, the 93-94 GSXR1100 uses a different ignition switch than the 95-98 GSXR1100. Can anyone help me identify my GSXR1100 forks?

Thanks,
Mike

One quick way to tell between the 93/94 and the 95+ is in the top stanchion diameter. The 93/94 diameter is 52 mm and the 95+ ones are 50mm. Hope that helps a bit in the narrowing down activity!! Good luck, John

Thanks, John. I measured the top of the tube stanchions at the top triple and they are 1.961" or 49.8mm. Apparently, I have 1995 forks.

Thanks
