So I've been at a standstill for a few weeks waiting on parts. Been researching the GSXR fork swap topics to find where to start but have no idea what year or model fork fits best for the stock 750 characteristics . Hanes manual says 484 free length for the cb but GSXR is in the 700's thinking that can't be right. I'm going to replace the hub, axle, and triple so just need fork length for rake and trail. Asking for some help in being pointed in the right direction on lengths

Fork length isnt as much of an issue as getting the geometry right. When doing this swap, the GSXR offset is way too small for good stability on these bikes. Lots of guys go for stock CB offset with the proper spread for the GSXR components. That helps get back to more sensible trail numbers. I would be happy to help with a set of custom trees. I have a number of designs available and am my offering is very competitively priced.

That's what I'm looking for is close to stock trail and rake. I figured length is all I needed to figure out because I don't want to change offset of the stem. To long its like a chopper, to short it can't handle corners. Trying to find that sweet spot, and there are a lot of sizes for GSXR forks. The bike I'm referencing used 1000 forks but seems like a lot for this CB

Checked out you're trees and they look really good and a possible buy from me in the future I'm defiantly bookmarking

Got the grinder out today and cut the side panels. Applied a quick texture to see if I like the woodgrain look.

Cut out the electric tray as well. Bent up the corners with my fancy new metal break lol. I'm happy with the results and plenty of room inside. Sides need welded next.

Front end finally on! Was a little challenging but am moving closer to completion. The rim and hub are going in for powder coating so I only have to rebuild the wheel once lol
