    Hi Everyone

    I’m trying to confirm the stanchion length for the Hurricane. My understanding is that the Hurricane had longer stanchions than the T150 or R3.

    The Hurricane parts book lists stanchions part number 97-4193 @ 23 1/8″, but I’ve seen stanchions part number 97-4007/2 @ 24″ listed online.

    So at the moment I’m thinking that;

    97-4007/H4007 @ 22″ are standard R3/T150,

    97-4193 @ 23 1/8″are standard Hurricane, and

    and 97-4007/2 @ 24″ are for people wanting to lift the front of the bike for various reasons.

    Is that right?

    Cheers

    They are 23″ exactly.

    Fit the std  22″ T150 & R3 stanchions and the bike with handle far better.

    A customers X-75 I had the front end off has 22″ stanchions and it’s the best handling triple I’ve ever ridden.

    I’m changing my X-75 to 22″ stanchions and changing the steering head bearings to tapered rollers.

      Thanks Warren

      I was going to go for the 23 1/8″ ones, but after your advice I think I’ll go for the 22″

      Cheers
