You have 45mm forks and the 06 has 50mm forks so you will need the forks, clip-ons, upper/lower triple, calipers, and wheel.

Good luck with the swap. Maybe you could swap with an 01-03 750 if you can find the entire frontend. The 01-03 750 had Showa forks which were better than the 1000 back in its time.

You said the 750 forks were better than the 1000's? I needt to replace the forks on my 01 750, and saw a set of 02 1000 (Gold) on eBay. They are not as good as OEM 750 forks?

The 1000 forks are not as good but you won't notice if it's just you're street bike. I was speaking about the 750 Showa forks IF the rider was planning on doing a lot of trackdays or track only bike.

How about newer setups, with radial mounted brakes? Are all newer GSXR forks 50mm? Would rather not replace the triple tree because I just did the bearings, etc.
