I know a guy who has the following from an 08 GSXR 1000:

forks
triples
calipers

Supposedly the bike was in a rear accident. He wants $300 for it all.
I know I still need the wheel, fender, axle, clip-ons, master cylinder, brakelines, etc.

I've checked Ebay and the price range for forks and triples, calipers ranges from $150 - $500.

Is it $300 worth it?

Cool.

Around what range would be considered a good deal? I figure I'm going to be spending about the same amount on the rest of the parts right, maybe more?

How much did you spend on yours?

^ Sounds like he might throw in the calipers too! No master or lines so I might have to take you up on the offer if I do get it.

I know there is a link around here that lists everything I need and talks about the compatibility of bearings and all the other jibberish I am not versed in. I'll have to search for it later when I get home..or if anyone knows it, pls post.

Also, is there any simple way to know if the forks are straight? Seems a lot of of people buy them without ever seeing them. But in person, can I just eyeball them??

Ok.. so I have options with the MC. Will def try to upgrade to a bigger one.

I'm trying to get through the fork swap guide thread http://forum.svrider.com/showthread.php?t=59000 which is insanely long!!! The qestions I'm trying to answer right now are...

-Which GSXR model/ year (600,750,100) clip-ons will work with the 08 forks?

-Which year/model rotor will fit the 08 with the 08 calipers

-Will the ignition lock work..and this is based on the 08 triples I get right?

Actually depends on wheel. Calipers work with any of the newer wheel, rotor combos.
So..it's not the rotor going through the caliper, but the rotor attaching to the GSXR wheel that limits its use on the SV? I thought it had to do with the diameter of the rotor being either too big or small for the caliper to be able to work.

Thanks for all your info Buzz!
