    I believe the original photo posting at http://f1.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/pattonme/ is no longer working. I wonder if it would be worth while posting the photos as attachments so the info doesn't get lost?

    I'm just going to cheat and fit the whole zx6r front end. That way I don't need to worry about spacers and can get back on the road quickly too. Looking at a set this weekend that is already fitted with racetech springs.

    This is were I'm up too. The forks are from a 95 ZX6R. It comes fitted with a race tech spring and has been revalved so there should be an amzing difference over standard. I got a whole front end, would I be better off using the rotors off the ZX6R wheel or just keep the ZR 7 rotors? I'm just waiting for a spacer and 2 sleeves to be made up.

    wo wo guys....cheat?...putting a zx9 front end on a zr7?...lol.....if you only knew what i had to do to get that front end on...a little more than have a few spacers made up....seriously...it was more work than i thought....here is what i had to do...the steering stem on the zx9 is about an inch shorter the the zr7...and also fatter....i had to turn down the stem on a lathe to accept zr7 bearings....i used the zx9 top triple clamp nut as the bearing preload nut...(radically modified on lathe and bridge port)...i also had to flip the top triple clamp over for it to drop down and have the clip on in a position i wanted...the made some spacers for under the triple clamp so it wouldnt hit the frame....had to tap the stem hole to use a cbr 929 front axle bolt as the triple clamp bolt...and finially...mo down the steering stops on the frame of the zr and weld on a stop that sticks out further because of the stops on thezx9 triple tree are farther apart....again i am furtunate enough to have access to the machines and the parts i aquired were on a barter system...my labor time for parts...it wasnt easy...but i got it doneIMG_20120524_213657.jpgIMG_20120526_142217.jpgIMG_20120602_192918.jpgIMG_20120602_193426.jpg

    Yeah I know, cheat was the wrong choice of words but I was refering to my install. Yours looked alot more completcated before your explanation. I found it much easier to get some sleeves and spacers made up in the end.

    Could anyone tell me what spacers etc I should have on the wheel spindle! Previous owner had done the fork upgrade, I have zzr600e forks and 4 pot calipers but not convinced the disc is centre of the caliper.
