Ok IF the ebay seller actually comes through with the sale, I have bought zx12-r forks and yokes.

Now on initial checking after the fact (the price really was that good!) the discs appear to be the same - they are not radial calipers so the ZRX 6-pots should fit.

so, my questions .......

What is NOT going to fit???

and if it wont fit, anyone know anyone looking for a set of zx12-r forks and yokes??

legs may need lengthening or zrx steering could be far too quick
legs may need stiffer springs to take weight of Rex
probably need a zx12r front wheel / or spindle and bearings to fit the zrx wheel.
need to get the yokes modded to take the zrx stem and head bearings
need some way to fit the zrx fairing frame / clocks to the yokes.
need to fit handlebar risers to the yokes if not fitting the zx12 clip-ons
not sure the zrx 6-pots will bolt straight to the zx12 legs

OR maybe it'll all bolt straight on ;)

...or maybe you should sell it on to someone whos just frontended his ZX12. . . then use the proceeds to buy a ZX9 B4 front end & simply follow the "step by step" guide in Pitstop ;) . . . :dunno:

Now, that is almost EXACTLY the same line of thought as me!:) :)

Hi Rob, was this conversion a simple bolt on job except for the top yolk or did you have to re-steam the bottom yolk ??,how did you get around the speedo drive etc,are the forks the same length as the ZRX ??,I would think you have left the spring rates standard as both bikes are about the same weight ??.

I'm looking at doing a coversion along this route but i don't want to follow the crowd and use old ZXR 750/900 folks.

I was looking at using the set you have used or possibley the Z1000 set up but as yet I've not found the time too many projects on the go......

Having recently acquired a set of said zx12R USD's for fitment to my own ZRX1100 the answer to your question has to be simply, anything can be made to fit within reason...it just depends on how clever you are or how big your wallet is coz there's always someone out there that'll be able to sort it for ya!!!

Ps - depending on where you're situated, the guys down at TES Perfomance are able to work wonders with anything with two wheels. Check out almost any issue of Streetfighters mag...

HI, i had to re-stem ,as bearings are different, you just get them pressed out
its an operation :blahblah: .
speedo drive I file 3mm off the outside face to centralised the wheel made oposite to suit:blahblah:
fork legs are 25mm shorter i had stepped top yokes made 240 mirror polished
i hope that help's tra,,,,,,:drink:
