fork mods

well the spondon has been getting loads of love so this winter i decided to swap the front end on the yellow bike..

complete kawasaki zx7r front. the fork internals have K-Tech internals, lightweight front guard, ZX10r master, and best of all 320 discs and ZX10r radial brakes on adaptors.

not a straight forward swap but not to bad.
7r stem pressed outa yoke, storm stem pressed in with spacer and pinned just for safety, then a lot of faffing about getting things lined up etc...

it steers faster but best of all the brakes would pop your eyes out... well worth the hassle.

What did you end up with for bars?
Relative to stock, same hight ? pull back? downward angle?

Or???

Hey Fabio,

I took Mikstr lead and did a 2005 ZX10 conversion with Triumph 675 radial calipers.

I know what you mean re the brakes, they almost make your eyes pop !
