They are inverted, bigger diameter, so way better than any F4i stock front forks!

ah.. okay lol i mean i dont do much if any track riding just spirited street riding and the street races here and there. i have my r1 that got hit in the rear sitting in the garage still just never thought the forks would be a benefit... thought the added weight would be to much.. but maybe ill have to think about it

If I had some, they would definately be replacing my stock F4 forks, 10 times better performance.

like everyone said, better performance... In my f4i forks I even had them resprung with rachtech springs and these forks are still stiffer which suit me better (track wise at least) and being inverted makes them 200x better than the f4i forks. the average rider probably wouldnt notice the difference but anyone who tracks or hardcore knee dragging street riding will say its a huge improvement. Basically this swap took these parts,

R1 upper and lower triples
R1 steering stem
Custom stem bearings as well
R1 forks
R1 wheel and axle
R1 calipers and Master cylinder (MC not needed but i went with a brembo radial R6 one)
any 50mm clipons (i went with ones that had a 1in rise so they fit like stock clipons)
R1 ignition or relocate f4i one... I just ziptied mine to the triple
R1 fender (which i still need)

pretty costly but if u have the parts laying around, its well wortht he swap

I bought this setup from Z, just didnt expect to have it all together this soon.

ONly thing is, the fork seals need replacing... But it rides great as off today!
