Have had a trawl through previous threads & cant find an answer - does an M72 tank drop straight on to an MT11 (with split saddles)?

Thanks

YES!  By the Gods and all that is good, it is a drop- on bolt-on!  I know this for a fact because I've been doing that very thing over the last few days!

Look at my build thread or my Dnepr for sale. You can see how it fits

Thanks guzzidude - that looks pretty special. Could you or any of the guys point me to a 'how to' guide or video for dropping the forks out? After reading the MT11 manual I'm more confused that when I started.

Take off the wheel. Undo the damper and keep in order. Undo the top caps and then loosen the pinch bolts and lube and remove.
