WR 426f Forks on a DT



  • Hi, I've just grabbed myself a real cheap set of WR 426f forks and front brake setup, still need to get triple clamps for it but looking to attempt to get it working on my DT. My DT currently has a wr200 front alloy wheel and I have an oversize disc which im 99% sure is the same size as the WR 426 front brake takes. My main problem, I have tackled many problems on bikes and could do anything engine related on the DT, but ive never tackled a fork swap, so im a little stumped on what im going to have to do. I have an old lathe and many other manufacturing tools, so I can make spacers etc if necessary. Anyone ever attempted this swap? if so help would be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers!

  • @glynn123 @Calum Uploaded a tutorial on how to fit USD's to the stock DTR headset;

    Sadly PB has punked us on the images, @Calum are you able to upload the tutorial again using a different pic hoster or direct uploading at all bud???



  • Yeah I need to do that. Should get it done this weekend.



  • Thatd be great if you got a chance sometime Calum, im guessing you used WR400 forks yourself?



  • @glynn123 Yeah I did bud. Different wheels though.
