<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">You are lucky jimmy, the 87 had a 17mm axle, and you can get a 17/47 bearing. the only thing you need to do other than that is redrill the 87 rotors to fit the new wheel(or get newer rotors).

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">the rear rotor bolts right on to the 5.5" wheel, and the rear axle is already 20mm in the back, so the back is a total bolt on.

the front axle on an 87 is 17mm, and you can get a bearing(from a custom bearing shop) that has teh proper dimensions to do the swap, but the brake rotors have a different bolt pattern and will not bolt on to the 3.5X17 front. Plus the opening in the old carrier is not big enough to go over the center of the wheel(on the newer wheel).

I remember spacing the rear caliper so it would not hit the wheel. I took a old sprocket shaved it down on a mill to just the bolt pattern and a 1/2 ring around worked good.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">that is what I did, because the 86s are even worse than the 87s.


I would get a set off 1100 forks if you do upgrade. I find the 750 forks are too short for the bike, and with my fat ass the adjsutments are all close to max settings.

I paid $600cdn for the 94 forks, clamps, calipers, brake lines, and clip ons.
I also replaced the steering haed bearing, and checnged the ignition key thingy.
