Gilera sp01 mod

Post by Rubberduck » Tue Oct 18, 2005 5:19 pm

so, hello to everyone...

so, i have taken apart my bike for winter for repainting and some tuning, and now i have this lil problem, im trying to fit gfr rearfork into my sp01 and from what ive heard, gfr/sp01/sp02 all have same frame, but for some reason the fork doesnt fit into it (the triangular piece doesnt fit into rearfork) so any ideas?

Do you have the two little small Aluminium parts,too?

Maybe the triangular piece is different, I will look after it tomorrow.

i have all the parts from it, but from what ive tried to assemble it, the triangular bit seems to be ~5mm´s too left (it hits the rearfork instead of going between it)

Do you mean the holder for brake-caliper ?? There I have 3 types: all the same, only difference : the housing for rear-axle ! the small one is 21,5 mm, the biggest is 35 mm width ...and then the middle ( SP02, sorry, not possible to give you measure of the middle one, is on the bike! )
Cheers Gottfried

i mean the triangular piece where "dog bones" rearshock and rearfork are attached to...

that image should clarify the problem, as you can see, the triangular piece is not lined to rearfork, its roughly ~5mm´s off the line...

Simple way: cut the one side ... and do it on the other side, ....or take a new one bushing for other side. Bye Gottfried

Not the fork - the "triangle"


--I--- <- before



--I-- <- after


And then put some tube that equalizes the parts you cut out on the other side.

---I--

But i don´t know what this means for the stability of your bike...
...might be a bad idea.

hmmmm, maybe i should machine a new triangle part for it?

but, it shouldnt make my bike wobbly or anything, since it doenst change the rearfork/frame line....

Do you have both trainagle parts?
GFR and SP01

Are they really no differences?All frames have the same base, but they are all different!Even SP01 and 02!
