2005 forks on 2003 gsxr. Possible? - April 26, 2010, 09:19 AM

So I was going to buy some 2005 gsxr forks off a 750 and put them on my 2003 gsxr 600. Want to know if it's possible and what all I need from the 05 fork set. I know I need he upper and lower triple tree and the forks. Win that is it a straight bolt on? I know some of you Gus have alot of knowledge around this place and just need some quick advice thanks.

you don't need the new wheel, you do need 300mm rotors or spacers for the 05 brakes to fit the 320mm rotors. you do need the calipers from the 05 though.

I am not positive about the axle, and you will definatly need the calipers from the 05. Here are some charts with compatibility info:

it would prob be easier and less headache to just get a complete front end and not have to part things here and there and just swap it....

He has this stuff to sell me how much more do I need to complete it?

steering damper, lower triple tree w steering column, and I got the wheel spacer too.

I know I sound like a noon but I am and I thank all of you for your help and advice. If i got it rift I think I still need the master cylinder, calipers, and front wheel and brakes. That right?
