    Gixxer forks are all shorter and mess up rake and trail, except the early 1100. Bandit 1200 forks are the right length. Use search, there are multiple threads on fork swaps.

    Here is mine with a RF900 fork on it, i'm switching over to 1200 bandit legs with the RF tripple trees. They are the same size, the bandit tubes are about an inch longer.
