650r front end swap?

question about an '05 Z1000 front end. anyone happen to know if its the same as the 05 636 front end? i'm looking at bikebandit, and both front ends seem pretty much alike. wondering if its a bolt on like the 636 front. any help appreciated, thanks in advance.

oh yea, i'm referring to the forks, wheel, rotors, calipers, upper/lower triples, MC etc

i'm thinking the triples might not work, but i think 05-06 636 triples do.

Going to do the fork swap? I would love to do that to my bike, but its way to expensive. I am surprised you dont just buy a SS.

Externally they're similar, but the Z1000 uses one fork for rebound control and the other for compression. They're not exactly a good suspension "upgrade".

If you can find 636 firks, that's the ticket.

yea i figured, someone showed me a Z1000 parts bike yesterday and was wondering if it was feasible. ideally i'd do the 636 forks (if i can get them cheap), if not i'll just get a new bike down the road. thanks for the input guys.

So are you putting firks on your racebike next year?

Unless you're racing, the big piston offers no benefit, and the jury is still out if it does in a race setting as well.

I've read the guys on the Z1000's do the 636 swap all the time.
I wanted one of those bikes @ 1 point and was considering the sweet swappings u can do.
Anyways dude, just get a bigger better bike down the road like you said. My $.02
