8541Hawk will become famous soon enough
You will need to do some measuring, first to make sure the forks you have now are realty 41mm &VTR forks and also to find out what size and which triple clamp is currently installed. Of course pics of both items would make identifying both components much easier....

Talking

ok, the forks that i tried to replace are much bigger than the stock 41mm. i have not had time to measure them right now do to the crazy work load the army put on me the last couple days. but i am taking a guess and thinking that the forks on it right now are off a 929rr, yes i think they are 50mm forks, i will measure them this weekend and find out for sure.

forks are not inverted and i will have pics up this weekend

Couldn't you see from the pictures on eBay that they looked nothing like what you had?
At the risk of overstating the obvious, it's a good idea when doing something like this to do a little research beforehand.

If they are NOT inverted they are not 929. Maybe 900rr, or rc30
