Does anyone have the length of the Ohlins forks on an rsvr-07, from fork cap on the top of the leg,  to centre of wheel axle hole?
I'm putting some old Ohlins superbike dorks in but suspect they are slightly longer? I don't want to mess up geometry.

I've got more questions/measurement for anyone that does have a bog standard rsvr-07 if someone could help.

Chers
Erik

hi Prsv,

Thank you for your reply.
I got some responses from Facebook also and all have different numbers?

Could verify to me if you measured this or did you find the measurement somewhere?

My fork are 730mm from TOP of adjesters to centre of axle
I got an answer from Facebook saying Aprilia Ihlins are 740mm from top of adjusters to centre of axle.
Cheers
Erik

Not quite what you've asked for, but you may find the following information informative...
The factory has an FG8903 model fork (this is stamped on axle/brake holder).
To the best of my knowledge, these data were used for the complete run of Factory forks.

P.S. Other Ohlins material shows that they measure the (730 mm) length from the top of the stanchion (i.e. excluding the top cap and preload adjuster) to the centre of the axle.
