will 636 forks fit a ninja 650?

I busted my front end and need new forks. its an 08 ex650r, will 2005 zx-r 636 forks fit a 08 650? The seller has the triple clamps as well.

If I could get just the forks I would like to do.

Its possible, but requires the triples and a few other small things. The 650 forums or kawiforums have threads on the swap.

Ill look for those threads, but what are the other small parts. I found some forks and triple clamps on craigslist from an 05

kawiforums doesn't specify if 05 triple clamps will work, they say specifically to use 03-04 clamps

I have done a frontend swap on a 07 650R to 06' 636 front, you will need a complete front end - Triples, Bearings,Tubes, Brakes, Fender, Wheel, and clip-ons. The stock headlight and upper fairing won't fit, so you will have to Street Fighter it.

Neat, thank you ODFU, this makes me think I can get it back into running condition if I street fighter it. Ill build it back up as I go through 2012. I really appreciate the photos

I have to say I kinda like the street fighter look. What headlight did you end up swapping to?

+1. riderforums has a good section for the 650r as well. lots of writes ups on the first generation 650r out on the web.

If you decide to fighter it, I have this headlight I picked up but never used.. yours if you want it.
