--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As you may remember, I documented (w/photos) my install of the 24 degree bearing housings in my 2013 Pani R. The results were a great improvement in all handling areas.

But, since I’m a curious sort, the description of the ’15 R as having 5 mm increase wheelbase caught my eye. Did the factory change the triples? If so, wouldn’t this slow down the handling while promoting greater high speed stability? And … how could I do this for my bike?

Here are the parts from the microfiche for the 2015:

They do move the upper and lower housings forward 5 mm as expected…..but, and here is the “secret”: the new fork angle is 23.5 degrees!!!!! NOT the 24 advertised!

HooHah! I probably won’t install them but they do use the sealed bearings rather than the “loose balls” of the originals.

I’m pleased with my 24 degree setup.
Here are '15R part #76510422AA
& #75610433AA
I went ahead with this change recently and it made a massive difference to how the bike behaves now, however I have ended up with a problem - I cannot lock the steering. The 23.5 degree angle along with an increase of 5mm in the wheel base renders the current top yoke useless.

Would any one know how to get around this issue? Are after market top yokes any good after such a change is made to this bike?
