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!
2009 Repaired Lime Green Ninja 650R. Gipro-DS. Woodcraft frame sliders. DeLorme PN40 GPS on RAM mount. CrampBuster for throttle control. Harbor Freight swingarm spools. Race Tech gold emulators/springs in the forks and a custom Race Tech G3-S shock. SW-Motech side rails and Givi luggage.
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?
