Default Are 600 and 750 forks interchangeable?

Just wondering...

They have different assembly numbers. However the differences are in the spring and the oil lock. Dimensionally these parts are the same. I can't tell you if one is softer than the other.. Or is the 750 is heavier and thus a stiffer spring.

i was thinking something that the inner fork tubes on the 750 were like 43mm (this isn't the right size, just a #) and the 600 like 41 mm or something. That is what I thought was the difference between them.

No the 750's tube is 41mm and the 600's is also a 41mm. They should work on either triple.

Like peter said the innards may be different alittle, spring rates, etc.........but the outside demensions are the same!

Parts # 10, 11, 14, 16 and 18 are different.
Parts 11 and 10 are related to the oil so therefor damping. #16 and 18 are the spring therefore spring rate or preload. # 14 is the tube, no idea why that is different. Since the lower #2 and all the seals washers and bushings are the same then they are the same diameters. It could be that one is longer than the other.
All this amounts to a hill of beans. What bike is heavier? I would use the heavier bikes forks. They would have a stiffer spring and probably damping. A good thing for a Kat.
