    My Triumph trophy 1200, 955 front end in and next is to weld on some lock stops.
    Drops the front end nicely and gives adjustability aswell, should make the old girl turn IMGP4749.JPG alot better aswell

    Looks good, have you got a bit more detail on how you did the fork swap or is it literally a "swap" ?

    It literally was just a straight swap. The bearings used are same as Trophies with top and bottom taper roller the same and sealed bearing on top of top bearing. So three bearings rather than the usual two . The only thing I had to modify were the lock stops. Which just judged by eye with gap between tank and clipon being the focal point and just by eye matched each side. Didn`t come out to bad

    Looks really good, so you use the 955 complete front end then including top yolk, clamps etc the trophy wheels assume use the same spacers discs and calipers ?

    No I used complete front end, 955 wheel, discs, yoke set, axle, spacers all 955. You also have to get 955 calipers because mount holes are different centres.So it was a complete front end change not just forks and yokes. Someone else on here might know if you can use the Trophy wheel etc

    This should put a smile on peoples faces. Just fiited new venhiull brake lines. Also daytona mastercylinder. Spent most of day trying to bleed the buggers, used old trick of tieing lever to handlebar over night. Did some good but still spongy. Any way thought there must be something wrong with mastercylinder so before removing I looked on Sprints website only to find there are different bore mastercylinders fitted to triumphs although they all look the same and you guessed it I have the 11mm bore mastercylinder for single disc set up and need 14 mm bore for twin disc. Thats what you get for trusting e-bay listings but to be fair it is in mint condition no corrosion etc.
    I knew they do make different bore sizes but trusted listing saying it was for 955, 1050, Sprint etc which all have twin disc
    Still at least I know what I need now and now have a spare of no use to me mastercylinder.
    Mind you I could always remove a disc ;-)

    Things learnt :

    Don`t trust e-bay listings
    Just because they look th same, different bores can lurk inside
    Am now becoming expert at bleeding brakes :)

    Forks etc sorted, new fairing fitted, ZXR 750 H brake and clutch mastercylinders.
    having fitted this fairing it has helped me realise that I want a more minimalistic front end.So wil be sourcing a large single headlight to replace this eventually or even a very small bates and digital speedo but that will be next year, Probably sooner ;-)
