    CBR1000RR Fork Swap

    Hey Guys,

    Anybody done a CBR1000RR Fork Swap?

    2006 CBR1000RR Forks to 1980 CX500 Custom...

    Finally getting my bike back on Monday or Tuesday next week!!!

    I have the All Balls Conversion Bearings, but am curious about the "steering stem length, etc?"

    I see that Congnito Moto has a complete package custom built with a new stem and triple clamps but Id rather not spend the $ 600.00 if I don't have to?

    Anything else I should look out for when doing this fork swap?

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Hi Steve,

    I know your original post is old, but I was wondering if you found anything out. I too just found a great price on a CBR1000 front end and have concerns about the stem length and overall fork length.

    Were you ever able to determine the fit on your CX500?


    Thanks

    Denny

    The 2004 - 2007 CBR 1000 RR is a direct bolt on to the CX500. The stem on the CBR is the perfect length for the CX. The only thing you will need to do other than match the bearings to the CX is cut off the steering lock tab on the top of the CX frame. Let me know if you have other questions as I've done of few of these...

    One other note - you'll need to also use the CBR1000RR front rim or there will be a ton of additional cost to fabricate parts to make another wheel fit - the CX wheel won't work unless you put CBR bearing in it and proper spacers. I've done it but there's a lot of machine work...
