I haven't seen too many RFs come through the forums, not as much information about what parts are easily swapped.

A few details with the swingarm to pay attention to:
Swingarm Pivot Width (Spacers or shaving)
Swingarm Pivot Bolt Diameter (Bearings)
Shock Mounting / Dogbone Mounting Motion / Location

A few details with the forks to pay attention to:
Steering Stem Bearings (All Balls Racing has a good list of bearings to use.)
Steering Stem Length (You can get one made or make a mix of parts to use RF stem on GSXR triples.)
Overall Wheel to Triples Height (If you go too short, you lose your ground clearance and make your steering more twitchy.)

Look around the site for other builders who have used the Hayabusa swingarm or the GSXR forks. You can usually find some measurements for the parts you are looking at or someone here may have the measurements stashed in a dark corner.

The best way in my opinion is to get the parts you want and then we'll help you sort the minor details out.

Can't leave them alone:2006 Suzuki SV650N, 1994 Yamaha XJ600S and 1979 Suzuki GS750LN

Time to find me a nice DRZ and VStrom...
