  • 08 Busa fork

    Anyone do an 08 busa fork swap? I've read they're an easier swap then the GSXR forks.

    Yes, they fit your triples, but you still need rotor and caliper spacers and the complete busa axle.

      Any idea where you can find the spacers? or the dimensions?

      I was thinking about doing this as well.

        The 08's fit right into the stock TL triples. A little sanding on the lower triple allowed the busa forks to slide right in. I did obtain the Busa wheel and axle also. No shimming or mods required for that wheel.

        Since the pic I did install 08 R6 calipers and lines.

          Installed '09 Busa forks and calipers in TLR clamps and kept the TLR wheel. As Vandriver said, this combo needs caliper and rotor spacers and the Busa axle. Also added a late model GSXR Nissin radial MC too, because I like the action.

            Busa 08 forks come out with VERY soft spring rating if you track an upgrade re-valving and spring rating plants the front down nicely...

              As mentioned above its an easy swap as long as you can get the rotor & caliper spacers made.
