  1. HELP!! Fork Caps Stuck

    ZR-7 Maintenance
    Hi guys, I recently took my 01' ZR-7s up to the local bike shop to flush the forks and have new seals installed. The shop just called me to say that they can't get the fork caps off and even asked if there was red or gray thread locker on them (there is not to my knowledge). The last time the...

  4. About Fork Oil Seals

    Mean Streak Maintenance

    General Z1000/Z750
    Hello all, new guy here, but I have been lurking ever since I got my ZR-7 last year. I just picked up a 2004 Z1000 this past month. It has tons of mods, and came with bags full of 636 goodies. I'm sure one of the previous owners has posted pics of it on here, it has a custom Prius-blue paint...
  6. Suckered into doing the 636 fork swap on my z705s.

    Z1K/Z750 Performance Upgrades
    After reading all the different posts on here about swaping the forks on the Z1K's, and Z750's for 636 units. I thought to myself hey that would be cool but it's a pretty expensive conversion after all the parts total up. Well finally the love for tinkering got the better of me. I thought, if...
  7. Ok yet another 636 front end swap question for you guys.

    Z1K/Z750 Performance Upgrades
    So here it is, I've fumbled thru the forums but couldn't find a clear answer. Will the '03-'04 636 triple clamps work with the '05-'06 636 forks? What is the difference between the two forks? I want to use the '03-'04 clamps cuz the top clamp is solid, and I want to modify it to fit the z750s...
