Forks for the bird

Recommended Posts

Searching reveals nothing,

Will forks from a 06 CBR1000 RR fit a 99'?

There is one that looks lightly scuffed at auction tomorrow that might be cheap.

Can't say for sure.

But I did find this sizing list recently.

Search for Stan and Mikes ZXXX build threads. Not 1000 rr, but neat builds with great ideas.

 

An extended sizing list.

Bird has old school forks, but anything modern is upside down set up. So you have to go forks/triple tree swap route.

With the right tools and skills anything will fit.

 

Not the answer you're looking for I'm sure, but it's all I got.

Rode Mikes ZXXX for about 50 miles leaving NeXXt in 2014. Felt truly amazing with the Dan Moto bars and upgraded brakes. 

 

Seriously had me considering it.

As I remember and it has been a while, it wasn't a easy swap.

I was wonder how difficult is vfr1200f to xx front end swap. Trail is close enough, 99mm vs 101mm. Front end, forks and brakes, is vast improvement over XX.

Too bad they are rare as hen's teeth.  Same bearings, so potentially an easy swap.
