I'm attempting to install my fork tubes into my triple trees.the headlight fork ears have a lot of up and down play,I would say a good 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch.bear in mind these were not on the bike when I tore it down.am I missing something to space them up or do I maybe have the wrong ears?thanks

At the top and bottom of the fork tubes, there are foam rubber grommets that seal and fill the space. They are hard to come by.

Thought so and I agree,what looking I've done there are none to be had.I did however,find headlight ears that wrap around the tubes,may have to go that way.

Maybe a trip to the local hardware store is in order.

Not the big box ones, but the type that have been there for decades. Bet they have something that would work as a spacer.

I was thinking plumbing department or large square o-rings.

Something rubber around 1 1/2" should stretch around the fork.

BTW, the rubber pieces were also used on the CB series Honda's. Essentially, most Honda's with the headlight and turn signal ears used them.
