Forks

Is it possible to put the 2005 inverted forks on a 2004 R6? Would it make that much of a difference on the street?

there must be a difference.....or else factory wouldn't have changed most of the modern bikes to the inverted forks.

if you need new forks, might as well get the upside down ones. and yes, they do fit, my friend swapped forks from 04/05 on his r6

less unsprung weight=better handling

better brake feel from radial mounted brakes.

For street use you won't really notice much difference. It's only at aggressive track speeds that it becomes a little advantage.

You'll need the entire front end less the wheel; upper and lower triple trees, handlebars, master cylinder, forks, brake calipers, and front fender.

Unless you can find a smoking deal on a used setup, it's not really worth it IMO.

Having read all of that, I'll agree with you.


Thanks!
