Default 2008+ Hayabusa fork onto Bandit 1250.

This should be fun.
Purchased a complete 2009 Hayabusa front end from ebay minus the top triple tree.

Looking into some 3" fork cap extensions to keep the Bandit 1250 front end height. I am never going to put enough stress on these things to break them I do not think. They are billet.

I can use a Hayabusa top clamp for the handle bar risers since there are already holes. Does the Gen I Hayabusa have the same fork offset as the Gen II? (32mm I think it is)

Going to have the Bandit 1250 steering stem pressed out of the lower triple tree and pressed into the Hayabusa triple tree.

Going to buy some EBC HH brake pads for the Hayabusa front and the Bandit rear.

Getting Galfer Sportbike seperate brake lines for the front.

And need a fender.........cut down Hayabusa fender??

The offset is the same. I think that I read that the fender from a gsxr1000 fits because a hayabusa fender is huge

I have noticed the Hayabusa fender looks kinda like a whale LOL! Thanks for the heads up on a GSX-R1000 fender.

Decided against the EBC HH pads due to noise. Ordered a bit quieter BikeMaster Sintered pads for the front and EBC organic for the Bandit rear.

Got CORE brake lines instead of Galfer. Translucent Blue with black fittings.

Everything else is ordered. Whew........

Even got a Lunasee active wheel lighting kit. Should be kickass at night.

Yes, it is active wheel lighting. A strip of reactive tape is applied around the rim and an LED charges it as you ride. Think Tron light cycle wheels. It is really an amazing jump in night visibility to other vehicles. Just search for Lunasee pics.

A touch of progress:
Wheel stripped, top triple clamp roughed up for paint.
Fender arrived and needs to be roughed up for paint.
Brake lines and new pads are here.

Still waiting on the fork cap extenders from Australia. In the meantime I am gonna rough up the upper portion of the forks and paint them black since the extensions are already black.

I know progress has been slow. But fork cap extensions are installed on the Hayabusa forks. Compressing the fork springs, while trying to keep the cap fully extended, while trying to slide a 14mm wrench on the cap nut was an experience!!!!
My pc is on the fritz and I can't seem to upload a pic from the phone. Ah well.....
