I was told once that the triple tree and forks from an 01 GSXR 1000 could be used on an 02 GSXR 600. As it turns out they don't work.
Am I missing something here?
I assumed that if the bearings from the 600 were used with the stem/1000 triples, that all would be well in the world?!!
Has anyone done a conversion like this from one model to another? If so, explain what you did that I missed out on.
I just thought that like many things in the GSXR family, forks could be exchanged from bike to bike. Go figure!

I have seen GSXR 1000 forks on a 600, so it can be done... however I do not know how the swap was accoplished. I beleive Mike Tadlock had that setup on an endurance bike last year. Unfortunately, due to a TWS incedent, that bike no longer exists.

The decision was made to leave well enough alone. Thanks for the input.
