Yes it is the 17" conversion again....
Been searching here and the interweb and it seems there is varied opinion about which front rim for which blade etc. I have put a CBR600 (90 something can't remember now but the rim most searches seemed to recommend) in my 1993 and had to get machining done and all sorts in order to get it right.
I also have a 1996 Fireblade which I also want to go the 17" route and was after the acutal CORRECT information as to which rims slot right in. I would be thinking this would be the place to sort the wheat from the chaff so to speak.
While I am about to start working on the 96, I have already had a latest spec Ohlins TTX modified by Ohlins tech to fit my 93, and the same guy also put fully adjustable Andreani cartridges to suit a 2008 Fireblade into my 93 fork stanchions, this required some skillful trickery to get all the adjustments to be able done from the top along with custom fork caps allowing for such etc. Probably not going to go to the same extent with the 96 but first step is the 17" front.
