Putting inverted forks on an '01 GSXR

I've put an '06 GSXR front end on an SV before... is it pretty straight forward to do on a 2001 GSXR as well?

I know I"ve seen that model forks on an SV, so if they (new and old style GSXR forks) both fit an SV, then they ought to fit each other. That being said, I would think the only real benefit would be improved braking, as they both are cartridge style forks and can be re-valved to meet your needs.

Search SVrider, there was a post a long time ago by someone from Needville/Rosenberg area that had the old gsxr style forks on his SV and posted his opinion on them versus new ones versus cartidge emulator set up for SV. It's not a direct comparison to the bike you're looking at but it may give you some insight.

www.allballsracing.com has a conversion chart that will tell you the correct bearings and seal you will need for just about any swap you could ever want to do. as long as the stem length is the same you are golden. I just used them to swap a cbr929 front end on a 1983 gs1100

Not the 600 forks. 750 and 100 yes, but 600s were still conventional.
