Question '03 - '05+ fork upgrade

Hi - I have an '03 RR and I'm thinking of changing the forks to USD as in the '05+ models - any info on here as to how you go about the conversion?

Many Thanks

read the 1000rr fork conversion sticky. Everything is the same except you wont need new wheel bearings. I asked the question in there and they told me what needed to be done. Just read!!!

So I tell the wife i am going yak-fishing. She then asks me if yak fish are good to eat???:headscrat

I had an opportunity to do that but after checking around it seems it’s not worth it from a performance strand point. Better to put your money into upgrading what you have.

But looks.. yea. and the radial brakes.

it's a straight bolt on, but you'll need everything from the donor front, cept the front wheel. clip-ons and upper triple, lower triple and forks, and the front fender.
