Hi all, I'm sure this has been investigated one way or another but basically, if I fit some K75 Showa yokes to my 8v K100RS, will my dash pad still fit the top yoke? I see mine currently bolts to the bottom half of the handlebar clamp whereas on a K75 the mounting boss is built into the yoke and the mounts are not directly in line with the handlebar clampy bits, as can be seen here. But those handlebar clamps look a bit closer togther than mine, so are the mounting holes for the pad actually the same distance apart as on the K100?

If anyone has a K75 top yoke and could measure the distance between the holes it would make my day!

And before anyone asks "lol y tho?" I've already fitted some Showa forks but don't trust the old yokes to clamp them securely on a 2 week euro tour that I still seem to be involved in that should be happening in September. I'd be much happier with some yokes that are meant for the job! Plus it'll be a good excuse to sort out the notchy head bearings..

Hi, I have a top yoke from a 1987 K75, the dash mount bolts measure 3 -1/2" apart

Many thanks for this Mr one, some fumbling about with a ruler suggests mine is the same at 3.5" though it is difficult to measure.

Right, time to get some yokes!
