    '05-06 600RR Forks

    Has anyone tried mounting the newer 600RR on to their HawkGT? I know the speedo will not work, clip-ons, etc. The only thing that I not sure about is the bearing size in relation to stock. I really just want a more modern, adjustable front end. Any thoughts?

    MOST Honda front ends will bolt up. (I have a F4i front on my racebike)

    What do you want the front end to do?

    You want the "looks" of USD? Or the Performance?

      I lean to the performance side of the suspension. The stock front forks are really weak and I would like a significant improvement on it. I have been scanning eBay for quite some time looking for an alternative set up. I am not sure what would "bolt in" without wasting my money on something that is not going to fit.

        As I said most Honda forks will Bolt in.

        F2, F3, F4, F4i, 929, 954, RC51... I am not as familiar with the 600rr but I think it does too.

        Whatever you can find really, It doesn't have to be the latest and greatest. My F4i setup cost me $650. You can get a stock set for $3-400 I think.

        This might help too.

          I like the phrase "bolt right in". That takes away from me trying to make some freaky bracket, grinding, cutting, etc for something to fit correctly and safely. I like the idea of the F3 forks, same 41mm size so the tubes should slide in to the tree and I can keep my clip ons. I forgot to mention the dual brake set up. I had them on my previous bike and like the stopping power of them over the single side. Plus I like to spend money foolishly on things that I think I need.

            Look for a set of 94' F2 forks if you want the cartridge style and still want to use your stock speedo... other wise go for the F3 forks.

              I'm mounting 03 600rr forks this winter... I checked with allballs, and that year does use the same bearing kit as a hawk.
