    GSXR front end swap and R1 rear

    Hi lads

    Don't worry, this isn't a how to thread. Sam or the Ring-In published a definitive fork swap guide there years ago but the link to the pic/ attachment seems to have gone dead since. Anyone have access to it and could send it on? Also, anyone making the shims for between the wheel and disc (or caliper) anymore?

    On another note, my new (old) yoke has the OEM damper. I could get a new Hyperpro shock for about £400 or there's the R1 shock with adapter route for almost half that. Does anyone here have that mod and was it worth it?

    Cheers
    Wiggi

    Little late but just sae your post. I put a r1 shock as rotary damper replacement & so far it's working alot better then oem damper ever did. With rotary damper I could never get it adjusted right,was either way too hard on bumps or too soft. Then it started getting weird after shirt rides where it's like it wasn't there at all. Bouncing & wobbling in turns ect. I made a bracket at work bought the shock for like 50$ took maybe an hour or two to do. Hardest part was getting oem stuff off. Imo it was worth it especially if your on a budget

    @Wiggi: WRT the damper on the yokes, you can buy the Hyperpro for £400 or you can buy a stir-fried knock-off for about £30. They do work ok and even if you toss it after a couple of years they are cheap enough to be considered disposable.

    I'm speaking from experience here. Fully adjustable and they go from barely noticeable to swimming through treacle. The one I have shows no sign of cavitation after a couple of years and the anodizing hasn't faded or discoloured.

    Definitely a step-up from the stock steering damper.

    Like my TL I'm old, overweight and badly maintained but I can still surprise you by how fast I can move.

    Hi Michael

    Sound for that, i already bought an R1 shock and i'm going to leave the OEM spring in place. Do you by any chance have the measurement for the plate you made, spacers and bolt lengths etc? Could buy a kit on E-bay but he's looking for 140GPB for a few high tensile bolts and a piece of aluminium plate.

    Thanks for that man, interesting idea actually. I was going to change the fluid in the OEM but i might actually try your "stir-fried" idea LOL. Did it fit to OEM bracket?
