Identify USD forks?

My Vtr was previously altered before owning it and i am slowly learning all of the different "modifications" as i tear into her. I have upside forks on the hawk and they are showa brand. the sticker near the front wheel reads showa "MCF-A01" any ideas? I also need the diameter of the upper fork tubes to buy or make mounts for my dominator headlights.

Thanks

Here's a link to a little chart someone put together, but, like the webpage says, be careful because upper fork tubes can taper in and out.

BTW, if you think of a nice alternative for higher handlebars, Ducati ST3 is also 50 and fit perfectly.

Again many thanks and I will look up those bars and check prices.

Check in for homemade rad scoops to hide rads. My not look the prettiest but uses my
Left over hot body fiberglass part and hides those unsightly rads. Plus might be my chance at a one off although someone's done it haha.

That was from an 07, probably not too many of them, but keep an eye.

Found some for ya. Just a tad bit expensive Ducati ST3 clipons

I really like the look of those. Makes it look stock. If I didn't already buy some Danmoto clipons, I would try to find a cheap set of those from an ST3.
