My GSX-R front end... finally!** 56k BEWARE!**

Well after 9 long months of parts hunting, scrimping, and saving my 2004 GSX-R750 front end mod is completed!

Here are some views!

After!

Special thanks to Jim Martin for working with me to make his speedo conversion kit work with the late model GSX-R setup and radial brakes. It works perfectly!

Those brakes look so much beefier.

Did you ever check if the banjo bolt pitch matched up between the GSX-R and the SV?

Yes they do! In fact, those are the Galfer lines I bought for my SV and the work perfectly.

Well the main costs...

Forks (with everything but top triple, wheel and fender) $595 (with shipping)
Wheel with rotors $350
Fender $50
Top triple $50
I don't have a figure for all the miscellaneous tools, nuts and bolts, tire, mount, and balance, etc... but it added up considerably.

But it was damn worth it! Thanks for the compliments!

BTW, I still plan on adding Pazzo Racing shorty levers (as I was able to use both GSX-R perches and levers!) and black anodized Sun Clip on Risers. The GSX-R clip ons are quite a bit lower than the SVs and my hands get nearly pinched in the fairing at full lock.
