    Telefix fork brace application

    I have a Telefix fork brace and I'm not sure what it fits. Looking for some guidance. It is 170mm center to center and has 'A3' cast into it. The size where it clamps onto the forks is 57.5mm. I had a '78 R100/7 and it didn't fit that so I am looking to pass it on to someone who can use it. Hoping someone out there knows what it will fit.
    Thanked

    I have a Telefix brace on my R80ST but I dont see the 'A3' casting marks anywhere. Also the C to C distance is 183mm, not 165mm.

    Interesting. My forks C to C are 175 on my R80G/S.

Or maybe it means 81 and up? What I can't find though are the fork width distances. It seems to me mine is awfully close to Motorrod's description.

    Many R80G/S riders say replace the upper fork cross brace to get the best bang for your fork stiffening buck.

    I don't even see the dimension in the shop manuals....haven't found it on-line, either.

    Are you sure it is for a BMW? Telefix made a lot of fork braces for different brands.
