forks

  1. Brakes and Suspension
    Hi, I recently binned my yamaha mt03 as a result I bent my front forks. I thought this was a fantastic opportunity to putt a set of upside down forks on, I have always wanted some but needed a good enough reason to change them so this is my ticket. However as most of you know it is not as...

  3. General Streetfighter Discussion
    In my stupid search for bikes, I've been looking at repo/insurance type bikes. Found a gsxr not too far from me and was wondering if this looked like some bent forks: Not a big deal, as the rest of the bike seems ok, but just want to know how much I should offer.

  6. Beginner Streetfighter Questions
    I'm doing some research on a front end swap for my SV650. I'm sniffing around ebay and find a set of forks with all the trimmings for a 03 / 04 GSX-R 1000. Now, the SV forums say that a set of forks from a 04 /05 GSX-R 600 / 750 will slide right in. I'm looking over the differences between the...
  7. Beginner Streetfighter Questions
    This is probably a stupid question. I've heard of a few ways to increase rake without cutting the frame, but does any one have any ideas for a no-cut solution to decrease rake? My bike has 30° rake, but I'd like it closer to 25° to shorten the wheelbase and bring the front end up a bit (I plan...
