    buy an sv????
    seriously if all that doesn't fit you will spend more money trying to make it work than just setting up some f3 forks really well

      I know that Alex Carlson has a Suzuki front end on his bike. Try to get a hold of him for all of your answers.

              I found the answer to my problem i bought a used cbr 600rr lower tiple tree and press the stem out and swap it in and found out that the lower potion of the stem is a exact match. Just wanted to pass the info on.

                Yea I have a 99 GSXR front end on my bike. That's good info to have. Easier than having a bearing race custom machined to fit.

                All Balls Racing doesn't have what you need.. because no other bike has the same ID and OD for a bearing race to make this swap work.



                I'm still sorting out the handling on mine.. the geometries and lengths of the GSXR stuff and Honda forks are a bit off.. If I could redo it I'd go with a USD kit from a RC51, 929, 954, 600RR, etc. That said.. my front end is mad trick.

                  I corresponded with a man which had a Hawk with GSXR forks.

                    I'm pretty sure that 929 triples slip right into the Hawk. Then as long as the fork diameters are the same, all you have to do is insert the GSXR forks into the 929 triples.

                        Well, with the power of ebay at your fingertips, you can sell the GSX-R bits for what it'll take to pick up the 929 bits you need. It's not too late.

                          hey guys I am trying to do this same swap on my hawk. To confirm does anyone know for sure if this works?

                          Are we only limited to 929 and 954 lower triples and not 1000rr's?

                          These seem to be much more difficult to find than gsxr lowers that's for sure!

                            I have no idea. I do know that RC51 and 929 triples work. Beyond that I have no idea.

                            however, I have to ask, why do you want to do this? bling or function. If this is for function save time and money and just get your stock forks reworked/revalved.

                            Inverted forks really do not work all that well on a Hawk, they are too stiff, too heavy and add to much unsprung weight to the wheel for such a light, low-powered bike. The only advantage is you get better brakes. But a good set of brake pads and SS brake lines will give you all the braking you need. If you really want to go crazy you can add an upgraded full-floating rotor.

                            If its for bling, well then go crazy and good luck.

                              I respectfully disagree with your assessment of modern USD's on a Hawk - they're solid, not heavy, and work great on mine.

                              But each to their own on this mod.
