Default showa slider compatibility

i have the 35mm 77-83 dual disc set up on my ride now. i was wondering if the single disc 84-up 35mm sliders will mate up with my tubes or will i have to get new tubes as well. the purpose of the swap is to run a 11.5 rotor.

thanks

I don't like to guess, don't store trivia well and never trust my memory so if I need the answer to something like that I compare factory part #s or look at the aftermarket catalogs to see what years the replacement parts fit. In your case I would be looking at fork bushings and seals. If they cover the years in question you can be pretty sure they will interchange.

Just looked and the fork tubes are different. No way the sliders will interchange.
