    CBR600 F2 forks question

    If I get them do I need to switch wheel right away or will the stock hawk wheel and brake fit?

    Why the f2 forks if your NOT goting to change the wheel?

      If you want to use your wheel/brake set up, it will work until you get a F2 wheel (dual brakes). The only thing that has come up in the past I have heard is an issue with having the correct spacers in, but that is not a big deal to fix.

        Well the reason for forks only is due to $$ flow. I found some forks cheap and could get them but just didn't know if I could use the stock parts while I compile the rest of the parts.

        I am already in the middle of the F2 tank and monster seat conversion. I do need to rebuild the stock forks due to leaking seals but if I can replace them with the F2 ones while I have them off would be extra cool.

          Maybe some of the experts will chime in but i don't believe the stock wheel /brake will work with f2 forks. I was just out in my garage and compared (i am in the middle of ALL of the same mods as you) the Hawk brake to the f2 and they are smaller. I don't have a tire on my f2 wheel yet so I put the stocker on it to roll around, with the bigger stock rotor on it i think you would have to make brackets to make the f2 caliper work.

            Hawk wheel and F2 forks should as well.

              Did anyone ever answer this?

              I read it on the list...

              I think I have had nearly every 41mm Honda front end set up at one time or another.

              Stock

              Stock with F2 wheel

              Stock with Emulators and Springs

              Hawk/CB1 fork legs, F2 wheel, dual 320mm rotors, F3 calipers, Hawk tubes with emulators and springs.

              Full F3 set up.


              Put the F2/F3 Tubes in the Hawk lowers. This is a great set-up. Gives you the cartridge adjustability while keeping the nice Hawk fender.

              Get a S/S line and some good pads and you will have plenty of braking for the street, if you want more get a six pot set-up from Steve.

              In my opinion anything more than this just adds weight and complexity to a street Hawk.

              Also adds sex appeal, romance, wow factor, modern look, etc. (Which I totally get. I have Brembo 4 pads and 998 rotors on my Ducati Sport Tourer for heavens sake…)

                If you use the Hawk rotor and caliper.

                Hawk wheel and F2 forks should as well.
                If you use the F2 rotor (on one side) and the F2 caliper.

                (just to clarify)

                A single F2 rotor is significantly smaller than a Hawk rotor. If you go this route, your braking ability bight even be reduced

                  who sells a 6 pot for a street model?
                  Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology.
