Title: Cognito Moto Design GSX-R fork conversions
Post by: SpeedBump on Nov 19, 2013, 16:02:44
Cognito Moto's mission is to make difficult things easier for our fellow garage builders. Check out some of our current designs.

We are alway open to suggestions and new ideas, so don't hesitate to post about something you'd like to see.

Thanks,
Devin

This hub is a 100% bolt-on solution for laced wheels on GSX-R forks. Re-uses stock GSXR bearings, seals and spacers.

Billet aluminum GSX-R top tree to replace the ugly oem GSX-R top tree. 100% bolt-on.

We also have designed up these retro nuts to match.

This stem makes it a lot easier to put that GSXR Fork on your CB750 frame. Simply press out your existing GSX-R stem and replace it with this one. Now you can bolt your GSXR fork right up.

This is a retro top tree for your GSX-R conversion.

You can mix and match all kinds of stuff to make it work but the easiest is the 2005-2010 gsxr600 and gsxr1000 forks. The gsxr1000 forks work as well but my top tree doesn't work because of the offset.

According to their website, 2005-2012 GSX-R 600, 750 and 1000.

Usually you will have to get crafty to fit a speedo drive...either go aftermarket and mount a sensor on a wheel, or a GPS type unit.

Like teddpage said, you will need an electric speedo. Legendary has gps speedos that seem pretty cool.

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

The hub and everything will work fine. I'm not sure of the neck length on the cb650 but I'm pretty sure it's the same as the 750. I'm waiting to hear back from a fellow that purchased the stem to fit a cb650. If you want to take some measurements I can check for you.

7.5" is the same as the CB750. Should work perfectly. If for some reason it doesn't we always accept returns.

would you happen to know whats the biggest size tire a cb350 can run on the stock wheels? the reason i'm asking is i want the front wide enough to make the GSXR front end not look funny with a skinny front tire.

Not sure since I've never done that setup. However, I don't think it would look funny.

Hey guys. Was wondering if a 2009 gsxr750 front end would fit on a 77 CB750.
Iím sure all balls will have to supply me with bearings by wondering if anyone has the knowledge of the fitability of this custom.
Thanks in advance!

Such a late reply but I am almost certain that mine is a 2009 750 fork on my 78 cb750
