Fork Studs 1978 Xs500
« on: September 08, 2016, 08:10:50 PM »
Hi, I have ran into a problem. I can't source any fork studs :(. Does anyone know the thread pitch of the stud to include the length? I'm thinking of replacing them with either with a stud that is the closest or with a bolt. What do you guys think?

If your asking about the axle cap studs the thread is 8 x 1.25mm

Yes...Thanks! One more question are the original studs made from stainless steel with the double headed threads?
