GSX-R in­ver­sion

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Special Brew -

I stacked my 1989 Suzuki GSX-R750K at the end of last year. The front forks were the main ca­su­alty, so to make the best of a bad sit­u­a­tion, I’m view­ing this as an op­por­tu­nity to fit a more re­cent front-end with up­side down forks. My lo­cal breaker has a com­plete front-end from a 2003 GSX-R750. Will it be a load of grief to fit? Mark Coyne, email Gary Hurd says: There are a few dif­fer­ences that will cre­ate prob­lems to over­come. The later front end has a dif­fer­ent length steer­ing stem plus there’s no speedo drive. Ask your breaker if he has an up­side-down front end from an L, M, or WP 750. Check the steer­ing lock­stops can still do what they’re meant to do and that the legs clear the fair­ing, al­though I don’t an­tic­i­pate any prob­lems there.
