I can buy a 07 1000 front end for my sv complete with everything but one clip-on. Will it fit correctly or should i try to find a 600/750 set up?
Now how would you go about setting up the ignition due to it being on the opposite side of the triples?you'll be fine, but if you don't have the forks rebuilt at a suspension shop with springs set up for your weight it's kinda pointless. it's also better this way because they would be able to tell you if they're bent or not.
you'll have to find aftermarket clip-ons that clear your fairing if you have the 'S' model.
Your current forks are 2mm more offset than the 07+ 1000 - 06+750 are 30mm offset, the 07+ 1K are 28mm offset. Not sure what the SV1K stock offset is, but SV650 is either 26.5 or 28 (N or S).( in New Fork Swap Guide i have posted my bike,at page 31,with gsxr 750 k7,but i believe that the offset,near 2mm less, is not good for my kind of drive )
Thank you for this answer so precise.Your current forks are 2mm more offset than the 07+ 1000 - 06+750 are 30mm offset, the 07+ 1K are 28mm offset. Not sure what the SV1K stock offset is, but SV650 is either 26.5 or 28 (N or S).
Longer offset = shorter trail = quicker steering response.
Shorter Offset = longer trail = more stability, more steering effort required to induce turn.
A lot of mis-information about Spring Rates being tossed around - 06+ 750 actually have bigger springs than the 1000.
Ignition on a left-side ignition triple (like 06+ 600/750 or 07+ 1K) will hit the frame of an SV on the left side before the steering stop i.e. the ignition would effectively become the stop. Not what nature intended!
That's why I advocate to use the 05/06 1000 top clamp with 06+ 600/750 forks/bottom triple - both are 30mm offset.
Not an option to use any other triple on the 07+ 1K - it's the only 28mm offset variant out there.
Also cannot mix/match later model 1K Kayaba forks with the triples of the Showa equipped 600/750 - different diameters
03-06 1K forks are 54mm at the lower triple; 07+1K are 56mm
04/05 600/750 are 54mm; 07+ are 53mm.
It should be the same offset for the 04 750 and the 07 750, - although different design top clamps (first one ignition to right, later to the left) they are same offset at 30mm....i have also a top triple tree,that it could be of a gsxr 750 k4,with ignition on right,and it has 3 or 4 mm more offset than the gsxr 750 k7....it' s right?
