Hello all!

First, post on the forum. *Full disclosure* I do not own a Yamaha R1.
I do have a Yamaha R1 front end (Forks, Brakes, Bars, Controls) conversion on my Triumph Bonneville T100. (Similar to, The Bullitt: The Bullitt OG)

I'm hoping to find a way to use my current wheelset on my Bonnie with the R1 Fork. But I'm worried that the 19" front wheel will not fit the under compression.

SO, I have a question for all of you guys.

Does anyone know the clearance of a fully compressed r1 fork? or what can be done to make it work?

Thank you guys!

That certainly helps.
My wheel is 1.3" larger diameter than the Stock R1. So i'm hoping that the clearance is larger than 1.3" + 120mm = 153mm (6.05")

Would anyone help by measuring their clearance? Preferably with weight off the front end?

I can't find such a specific (And Strange) measurement anywhere on the internet.
