Ya i couldn't find my book for a while, but i found it now and have it set right.

Another question. If i used 03-04 triples, forks, calipers, and spacers, could i use my current wheel?

No, you would need to use an 05-12 ZX6R or 06-11 ZX10r wheel.

Sure, if you swap in a fork that they fit.

I have looked over a few different posts and can't seem to find an answer, so forgive me if this has already been talked about.

I have an '09 650R that I need to replace the whole front end. Found a set a '04 636 forks, upper and lower triples, brake calipers and front wheel. The question is: I want to retain the use of handlebars. What upper triple tree can I use? Is it the z1000 upper triple which is hard to find on Craigslist or eBay? If so, what year?

I should be able to use my 650R rotors on the '04 636 front brake calipers, right? Thanks!

Z1000 is hard as hell to find. I think they make handlebar adapter kits/aftermarket 636 upper triples.

sportyaccordy is right, waited a while eventually I had to get a new Top Triple from the Z1000 for my project.

HEre's a site w/a bunch of options (cartridges, emulators, etc)

Motorcycle Front Fork Cartridge Kits From Traxxion, WP Suspension and Racetech

Something else to consider: SV650 has 41mm forks and has a lot of support. So it would prob be smart to look up SV650 stuff as well.

Traxxion makes a fully adjustable drop in cartridge

AK-20 Axxion Cartridge Kit

I just wanted to check on the swap. I have a 06 Ninja 650 and want to do the ZX-10R frontend swap. The previous owner gave me the complete ZX-10R frontend including upper/lower triples, calipers, forks.

It looks like the front wheel off the 650 will fit (same axle) but do i need to change over to the ZX-10R wheel spacers? [i saw one post from ivanko]

Also, as mentioned, the ZX-10R lower triple will not fit. I know the 636 lower triple is bolt on (but unsure of fork dia). Also i was told to use 04-ZX 6R lower triple and use that stem on the ZX-10R triple?

Appreciate your inputs !
