whenever your ready. now, next week, or next year. put me first on the list. of course price and timing are essential. (if i have the money at the time) i believe i will be putting busa forks on superbeast. i am having some issues with the clear powder chipping on the anodizing and such. but,they will have to be darn near perfect as far as scratches and stuff go since i will be showing the bike occasionally. just keep me in mind. many thanks

I'll let you know when/if they go on Ebay. They don't have a scratch on them.

Yes, you're correct about the tapper but I've usually noticed rather standard sizes since most forks are made by the same few companies. Like I said in the first post, a trip to the machine shop will usually fix anything. This list is just a base line to go off of.

You may want to Email Vortex with your correction, as that list is for the clip-on's they sell. It's odd that they have incorrect sizes listed.


Any time I've heard a reference to a front end it was referenced by the top measurement. From wreckers to Ohlins.

cbrf23 is a NOOB
Default Re: Fork Swaps - All Sport Bikes

FYI All CBR front ends will fit all CBR frames from 1991 up to 06 (probably 07 and 08 but havent checked)

They all have the same size steering head bearings and stems are all same size and lenght. So for example a 1000rr front end will fit on an f2 (ok thats mine, lol, but it works) so will a 929 or 954 or 600rr or f4i or whatever and vice versa- they all will bolt up to each other.

Now this is if your using the entire front end (forks, triples, wheel and brakes)

From their, you can use tom's chart to figure out what clip/ons to use if you arent using the ones off the bike your forks came from.
For example - the 1000rr uses a hydraulic clutch and the f2 has a cable operated, so i used 50mm clipons/controls off a gsxr and rewired them to work with my bike.

You could also do like i'm doing now and rig up some dirty bars.

Just thought i'd add this to this thread since its good info that not everyone is aware of and fits in the title.

you can find a small list mainly for Suzuki at Selli's dimension lists
with the upper and lower diameter as well as the axle diameter
and the measurement for brake brackets.
And there is a list for swingarm dimensions too

all measurements in mm
swingarm list caption
modell | type of swingarm | width swingarm front (motor) | width swingarm back (wheel) | length

fork list caption
brand | model | year | length | upper diameter | lower diameter | axle diameter | measurement for brake bracket

Main Page is Sellifighter
he's the guy we made the triple tree for

http://www.ohiocaferacers.com

go to "tech tips" and there's a pdf file with alot of bikes bearing sizes.

It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.

What are 02-03 GSXR 750's(USD's)? I know they are 50 mm at the top clamp, but are they 50 mm at the bottom too? For some reason, I don't think so.
