    Awesome...any chance I can get you to throw a tape on it as well with a picture? know that's a lot to ask...but I do need to see where the taper is. On a honda ct70, the area for the lower clamping will be about 1.5"-2" lower on the fork tube than on a grom. So actually, can you make sure of that measurement as well please just in case the diameter is different?

    I was out running errands today and I went to the honda shop packing my caliper and they didn't have any groms on the floor. Then I went down to service and they didn't have one in for service either, otherwise I wouldn't ask...really appreciate it!

    I wasn't sure exactly how you wanted this measurement. I figured this view will be able to get you what you need to know by calcing if it's not right. Measurement is taken from top of the fork the start line is the beginning of the bottom clamp diameter and the end line is the end of the bottom clamp diameter

    You didn't ask for this measurement but figured it may be useful in calculating if my above picture isn't exactly what you where looking for.

    Chad...another question if you dont' mind. What is the offset of a standard fork setup? Also what are the dimensions of the inner to inner at the axle and inner to inner where the fork uppers and lowers come together at the tightest? A standard set of grom trees could potentiall work.

    I like where this is going...

    Once my new Grom wheels come in I'll be building a set of clamps for Zoke forks.

    There's a couple of potential issues which is why I 'm doing all this research. First, the Grom forks do not look like they have much offset. Standard monkey/ct70 have 40mm and you can buy trees that have 55-60 which slightly extends the wheelbase and moves the tire forward so your bigger engines can clear. Another issue is height. Standard height of zokes is 730mm and not even sure if you can get 650mm anymore. That is way too long for a grom. A standard ct70 fork is 610mm.

    Reports of grom forks being too soft are all over, meaning you need to upgrade 300 bucks to make them work well. However, KSR110 forks are available and they are awesome with just adding 10wt oil and preload adjusters in 650mm. Still cost 600 bucks though
