Over the Weekend

Over the weekend I did a bit more work.  I swapped out the front end with one pieced together from an 08 or 09 R6. This swap can be done with tapered roller bearings from All Balls Racing.  I also started mocking up the 5.5″ rear wheel with spacers from Blue Ridge Performance.

Riding motorcycles and wrenching since my preteen years, I have moved from motocross to street bikes. Being a teen back in those days it was tough to get me off of the bike. Now days even though I am very busy being a dad I still have my weekends and go to the track to race and on occasion will do a track day or two.

    Did you use the whole front end from an R6? Wheel, brakes, forks, and Triples?

      Yes, I used the entire front end from the stem to the wheel. So, Stem, triple tree, fork legs, brakes, and wheel were used. I used a kit from All Balls Racing to convert the front end. The kit comes with new tapered bearing, cups, and spacers. Thanks for checking it out.
