    Triple tree trouble

    So I have an 82 cb750c chopper build and I'm not a huge fan of the air system in the front. Anyone have any idea for a different top clamp and fork tubes I could use?

    A lot of confusion lies there, the forks come in 35, 37, and 39 mm. tubes and the triples are either straight or angled as well. The fork legs are easy to mess up on too as they come fitting only certain tubes. Anti-dive or not legs and dual or single piston calipers along with dual or single discs confuse even more.

    Well I currently have 35mm on there but I'm not running a front brake. Theyre straight, not sure of the anti dive. (This is my first cb) I wanna do extended forks and get rid of the top clamp so I can run riserless bars

    35 are not anti-dive. The C fork is like the longest one used there.

    To be fair... I dont even know what anti dive means. Kind of embarrassed. Might see what my options are. Even if I have to run forks off a different bike

    Then 35 mm. is likely the most common size out there.

    Anti-dive is a setup where suddenly grabbing the front brake hard activates the fork to stiffen up to not dive nearly so much, it is hard to control a bike that collapses the fork quickly at hard braking. The sportbikes all use it, it makes control around corners much easier to deal with under hard power and then a sudden braking.

    That makes total sense! Thank you!
