hey hows it going? I've been trying to research a front end swap on my 01 zx6r. but so far i have had no luck. I'm trying to see if i can swap out my old front end for a newer inverted fork front end off of a 636 of later 6r. If anyone has any information on this it would be greatly appreciated! thanks

A friend of mine did something like this with an old GPZ900 in that he dropped RX1000 forks, wheel, brakes and guard into it. We had to swap the steering head poles by pressing them out because while the diameter was the same the length was different. He was lucky because he had a spare 900 front end hanging around to experiment with. You need to keep rake and trail and triple clamp offset as close as possible to be the same. I would suggest a visit to a friendly bike wrecker or two and have a chat to them.
