    I installed Fox's Float 40 (27.5") downhill forks as an upgrade to the RST. Combined with the 21" custom wheel I laced it's a whole new bike.

      The forks come w/trees, also the Fox 40 come with a lightweight steertube that will need a larger star-nut or expander to tension the headset. Stack height with the upgrade tapered bearing set I'm using is very close to max.

        the dnm shock has the new tapered headset so I don't think it will work .I might have to replace the headset can you post a close-up picture of your triple tree and headset set up? Where did you purchase your forks and parts?

          did you use a mountain bike rim and front tire for a motorcycle rim and front tire?

            Too close? My front wheel is a 21x1.6" Tusk impact 36 spoke m/c rim on a bubba 110mm mtb hub wrapped with a 2.75" shinko 241.
            My headset came from Luna, the mtb hub & spokes from the wicked wheel shop. The rim, tire, forks ect from ebay.

              My bike is '18, and yes the OE bearings (all, or both type) work if you use a straight 28.6mm steertube + bearing adapter like stock does. I assume the lower bearing w/o adapter also fits tapered steertubes, no guarantee on that.
              The reason for the adapter is that the sur ron frame is made to accommodate a tapered steertubes larger lower bearing, but they come w/straight-tube forkset.

                    Beautiful setup for sure!!!!! Did you disconnect the headlight and tail light from the harness? Looks also like you have a 21' wheel and tire too!!! Very Clean build!!!!

                  It's a 58 tooth by Sur Ron USA. It's a standard non o-ring chain. 112 links.

                    fit

                      Should install without trouble, depending on the bearings used you may need to re-use the lower bearing adapter & expect the star-nut to be a larger size. These forks will need a boost size hub or 5mm brake adapter for a 110x20 (stock size) hub.

                        Yeah I don’t really know much about bikes at all do you think I will need to get someone to professionally fit them or is it pretty simple and obvious what extra bits I will need
