YZF750 Rake Trail and Steering Angle
Hi All, been looking everywhere and can't find the details of the YZF750s rake trail and steering head angle. I assume there is no difference between the R and SP. I put a set of forks on which have reduced trail but I didn't think that affects steering head angle unless there is an offset between the two triple clamps. I sent it to my mechanic yesterday and he immediately noticed the steering angle which me measured at 22deg which is pretty steep. He had a Duc 1098 in there and that looked like a cruiser in comparison. Obviously rear ride height makes a difference but even so.
