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.

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.

which year gsxr750 forks work with stem and triple clamp? I'm gona keep an eye out on craigslist.

also, does the lace hub have a way to use the stock speedo unit?

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
