Question 2006 Gsxr forks

Hey Guys,
I did a real quick search & didn't see a whole lot on this particluar swap.

I may have a lead on a complete front end off of a '06 gsxr 1000. What is needed to get this thing to fit?

Thanks

One of the most accessible guides to problems like this is the recent Front Fork Swap - The Guide by Tweety in the Modifications - Performance forum.

Well... With a complete front end including the wheel and all, most likely you would only need the custom bearings to fit the steering stem... And to figure out the clip-ons/handlebars...

GSXR 1000 parts swap over to 600's so the steering stem should be the same between them, but I don't know for sure if there are differencies between years... Check on any GSXR forum to be 100% positive... All I can offer is 99%...

Yep, basically two ways to do it.

1: complete GSXR parts with custom steering bearing from allballs.
2: 954 triples with GSXR parts and custom spacers for wheel and rotors.

alright thanks guys

with tha being said how would I go about figuring out the "custom" bearings I would need to get from allballs?

The frontend includes everything from both triples & clipons down to the wheel & rotors.

On the all ***** website there is a table that tells you what you need. Go to this page: https://www.allballsracing.com/index.php/forkconvertion

Select VTR1000F as vehicle type, then scroll down to 2006 GSXR1000 to find the bearings. For top bearing, you'll need 99-3540-5 (30 ID, 47 OD, 12 width). For bottom bearing, you'll need 99-3519-5 (30 ID, 55 OD, 17 width). But please don't take my word for it. Verify this for yourself.

Oh, and you will probably need new adjustable clipons no matter what other setup you go with. (unless you are streetfightering it)

Ok, lazy me, hadn't gotten on the site in a couple days.

Ask for Alex, he helped me with mine.

I used the stock SH bearing for the lower, and custom for the upper. He will look up the ID and OD for you. Tell him what bike and what steering stem. There may be differences.

I don't know how long your forks are. I used 2004 GSXR600 forks. Check the length.

I am about 95% sure that 929/954 clipons are the correct ones to use. I have the Right side from a friend and placed it it, it looked good. Should be right at stock SH height even when mounted under the clip ons.
