Got it now :)

Thanks for the links.
Now, don't know what to do... :dunno:
I've found an upper triple from a Z750 way cheaper than the one from the 07 Versys. Need to investigate if this Z750 triple can fit the fork of an ZX6R without any modification.

By the way, I have read your journey you posted on riderforums and I love what you achieved :righton:
My aim is to transform mine in order to something that looks like yours. Hope to be able to get a result as nice as yours !

Be careful. The z750s didn’t have upside down forks until later in the years. I know the 2010 had upside downs and will likely fit but finding the right model year first will help. Try posting in the z750 forum here and on other sites. Chances are they’re helpful and will tell you what you need to know

Just a note to say that the easiest USD fork upgrade by far would have to be Versys followed by z1000sx. The versys would be a little tall but they are USDs. Second to that would be z1000sx... bolts straight up, uses the stock Er wheel, has 300mm discs, uses the stock axle and spacers. The only thing is to buy the top triple clamp you want and handlebars to suit. Again the z1000 from 03(?) onwards is the easiest. Its almost as if kawasaki planned it this way :)

Hang your bike from the ceiling. It helps to have a triple tree stand. There were moments with the bike suspended from rope/ceiling that I needed the triple tree stand. Mentioned in my thread as well.
If you are going to suspend from the ceiling like I did, the position of the rope securing the frame of the bike to your ratchet tie down strap may prevent removing the triple.

I believe so but no one has documented. Let me know if you need a z1000 top and bottom triple for 52/50 forks. I have a whole front end from a z1000sx that bolts straight up with a 650 wheel, has ABS mount works with ignition lock etc

Have a look at my journey thread.
The grey forks are the ones I have to offer. Send me a PM if you’re interested.

Hey guys question regarding the 650 frame/steering stem - is there any difference between the 1st gen and 2nd gen in this area? Asking because I know someone who modded a zx6r front end for his 08 650 and was wondering if that front end would also work on my 15.

Hi. Welcome onboard.

In 2012 Kawa did cosmetic and frame changes, but I believe the front end has stayed the same through all generations - so there is a good chance that it would fit. I read on another forum that a guy fitted 2004 ZX6R front forks to his 2012 model - which is basically the same as your '15.

Although, if you don't want to use clip-ons with that front end, you are going to have to fit up a different top triple tree, and from what I understand, it's not just a simple swap, there's a fair bit of work involved.
