    I have forced the users on my forum to register before they can view threads,

    I have edited the "Unregistered" user group permission to stop "View threads by others" which forces the user to register.

    Will this stop Google robots crawling the site?

    Robots have the same permissions as guests, so yes.

    Is there anyway I could allow robots? but force register members?

    No and it falls foul of Google's terms (they refer to it as cloaking).
