So I may as well start myself a thread for this, most parts are now in the mail and enroute!
First and formost big thanks to WT member Philth, he cut me a killer deal on these parts making it possible for me to give this a shot!
This fall/winter I will be completing a RC51 usd fork swap on my white 919. I will be trying my hardest to use all OEM honda components for the front end set up ... while maintaining my current ohlins steering damper set up, koso cluster, 599 headlight & renthal 7/8" bars.
Parts List Shipped:
- RC51 Sp1 forks
- RC51 Sp1 wheel
- RC51 Sp1 rotors
- RC51 Sp2 caliper brackets
- RC51 Sp1 axle & spacers
- cbr600rr fender
- Cb1000r upper triple
- Cb1000r lower triple & stem
Possible Parts Fabrication/Mods
- fork tube shims
- 22mm - 28mm bar shims
- modify stops on lower triple and create mounting location for steering damper.
The last list above is currently a guestimate. I need to get everything in hand and start taking some measurements/mock up to really know what dirrection i will go in
I know i will need to make some shims and spacers, plus have some machine work done to the lower triple to get what i want. HRC27 was kind enough to ship me a stemless cb1000r lower triple, i will use this for mock up, shim design and trial fitment of the steering damper arm.
This won't be happeing over night, but riding season is soon over up in the great white north..... so stay tuned for updates and pics!
BTW.... i will be selling my current front end soon. F4i fork/ F3 wheel combo + triples and axle spacers etc. Every part is powder coated, and forks are resprung with fresh seals and oil. Plug and play setup! .... and my 420 rear shock as well.... going ohlins if everything works out!
