Front end swap out suggestions

Post by Skim325 » Thu Sep 13, 2018 4:07 am

Hey everyone. I’m looking for some direction when it comes to swapping out my front end.

I saw that some people are using 675 forks. Do those fit in to the one triples on the rvf?

I also checked out tyga’s website and it mentions 53mm or 54mm cbr forks. What model years are those? I think google came up with 06-2012 cbr forks but I didn’t see any definite specs.

And then I also think I read some people used rsv4 forks and/or fire blade front end?

Is there a post that outlines all the various swaps that can be done for the rvf?

If this is for a road bike then I wouldn’t bother, just get the standard forks setup for your weight or if you really need to buy a cartridge kit such as the one matris sell.
