What specifically makes the GSXR front end more desireable over the stk Honda?. I understand Honda is old tech, some of you have studied the differneces and nuances but please enlighten me.

The short answer is that the GSXR forks are more responsive, lighter and have better brakes. I'm sure there are plenty of arguments to be made but it's really personal preference.

Why the 05 Forks and not the 04?

To my knowledge the 04 and 05 forks are when they switched over to the inverted style fork.  Is there a difference in the bottom clamp? or are the 04 forks indeed ok..?

Also, with regards to the hub, what specific 17' Harley rim?  and what length spokes?  Ive been looking up rim options lately and my head is absolutely spinning. :(

any insight is appreciated, the spoked wheel segment is totally new to me.

Thanks!

They will work spacing wise but the rotor diameter is smaller on the 04-05 gsxr.

I use the 17" rims on my builds simply because I like to use modern sport bike tires. Stock cb rims can be used. For spokes and lacing I use buchananspoke. They do a great job and I highly recommend them.

Hope this helps and don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.

ok good to know!  I just got my 04 front end ordered after a few months of BS. I was sweating there of a second.

Put one of those aside for me!  8)  So awesome.

I just spent a small fortune on parts so my order from you is next! lol
