    R6 forks, axle, spacers/adapters for 07-09

    Everything you need to upgrade the forks for a Gen 2.
    Forks from a 03/04 R6 (it took me buying a few sets on eBay to actually get a good straight set)
    I replaced the seals and the oil last spring, about 1500 miles on them since. I had the axle spacers (stainless steel) and the fender adapters (aluminum) made by a machinist at my last job. M10 washers for the caliper spacers.
    $425 shipped to the US.

    What would be involved to put these on my '05?

    You would need the brake calipers from either the 07-09 FZ6, the 03-04 R6, or the 06-09 R6S (all the same) - the calipers on your bike will not mount to these forks.
    You'll also need different adapters to mount your stock front fender. Or I believe you could use the R6 front fender.

    Gotcha, thanks. Probably more work than I'd like to do now that riding season is upon us. If you still have these at the end of season (Oct/Nov) I will probably still be interested.

    It's not that bad, especially as your avatar shows no fairings on the bike.

    It shouldn't take you more than 3 hours for the full job. Jack the bike up, remove wheel, fender, calipers, fork legs (20-30 min), carefully remove the old brake fluid (15 min), reinstall new fork legs, wheel, fender, calipers (40min-1h), put new brake fluid and bleed (15-40 min).

    Only brake bleeding is a bit tricky (at least for me it was as some air remained trapped in the OEM line splitter), but this would be a great time to also put "race" (meaning 2 fully independent) steel braided lines, which will make bleeding very fast and easy. While you're at it, I'd also remove the caliper pistons and at least clean and grease with special brake rubber grease- this could be done before starting the work on the bike to reduce the "bike offline" time.

    It is some of the best money you'll ever throw at this bike.
    Even if you have to grab calipers and a fender.

    Sadly you will then find out the rear needs help. But once doe, night and day transformation for those who have the opportunity to play in the twist

    Trust me, I want to do this pretty bad. Tough to find free time with 2 young kids and an enormous to-do list!
