Race Fork Upgrade

Post by Racer93 » Fri Oct 02, 2015 11:54 am

Is there a front end upgrade which works with racing?
I had shocking handling/braking at Pembrey recently due to bad headstock bearings but would like to upgrade the forks and brakes too....

I was wondering if ZX6R or ZX636 front end a)fits b)any good?

thanks for any advice.

Yes, the B1H Model with radial calipers is a nice upgrade and goes in easy. I had a 2006 GSXR 600 (K6) Front end on a race bike which also fitted easy. The radial calipers are a welcome improvement, and modern wheels are so much lighter too !

Hi there, the radial braked front end off of 2006 onwards (2c0) Yamaha R6 goes straight into the ZXR Yokes and works perfect. Forks, brakes, wheel, spindle all go straight in. Cheers Shaggy
