651Lance ,
I was wondering if a set EBR 1190 front forks would fit on my 1125r.
Thanks for the help, Jim

If I remember correctly the OD of the for tube is larger and the axle is larger on the EBR. You could probably get them to work but itís not a straight bolt on.

Forks drop right into the 1125 triples (uppers are the same diameter at both triples), but the EBR uses a 30mm axle, so you have to run an EBR front wheel assembly, as there isn't enough meat to convert an XB/1125 front wheel to fit the larger axle. I've done this exact conversion on multiple bikes.

Thank you all for the help.
Still thinking of doing the conversion or not.

I'm in Hastings MN and have a spare set of 1190SX forks. Not sure I want to sell them but could help you figure things out. PM doesn't always work so feel free to email me at kane.bill@hotmail.com.
