and i might be mistaken, but you MIGHT be able to swap the whole front end with an 05 for the inverted forks. 03-04 is same as 05 besides the inverted forks.
ya only thing is i would have to get new clip ons, brakes, upper and lower tripple trees. etc

We built this one to race in the British MRO600SS championship.
Had 20mm Ohlins fork kit to begin but then upgraded to 25mm as the lap times came down.
In March 2005 this bike set the class Brands Hatch lap record which stood for 2.5 years.
If you want specs let me know but bear in mind this is a track focused bike !!

I've ridden it loads on trackdays and it was a peach,
only had me off once but that was my fault ha ha
took a while to match the lap times we got with this one on the new R6.

Ohlins 25mm fork kit, Ohlins fully adjustable rear (set up by MCT)
Matris steering damper
Hel Brake lines
Performance Friction "race" pads (don't use on the road, bit wooden until they have some heat in them and then f#ckin' AWESOME)
Castrol SRF brake fluid (worth every penny)
YEC kit loom with total loss and "chipped" YEC ignition.
DBR rearsets
Bob Farnham/Seton motor (122BHP at the rear dropping to 117 by season end)
Kit air intake tubes
no air filter (we had to gamble with this to keep the Hondas in sight !), wouldn't recommend.
Graves velocity stacks
Akra Evo full system
Morris Oils
Pirelli Super Corsa's

HTH

One of the worst road bikes I've ever ridden, but o man, on the track it was sublime.
It was like, come on, is that all you've got, make me sweat at least ha ha.
It turned in so quick I was runing up chevrons all the time.............
and the noise on the overrun was mega.
I had the Stage 1 kit on it so it was a bit quicker !!

We got ours via Jason Griffiths at Yamaha Racing UK but SDC do them over here too I'm told. I think Belgarda Yamaha in Italy are the biggest distributor !!
Did you try a Google ??

If you can't find anything Stateside, let me know and I'll price one up over here for you.
Why do you want it though ??
We needed it for the over rev it gave us in conjuction with the kit ECU that a standard set up wouldn't allow but also because our ignition switches/ECU are security coded over here so we couldn't just change the ECU (at that time).
