  • Forks?.....

    Hi all, this winter i'm gonna be taking my bike apart and spend a little time and money on her..as i bought her in may and not have the time to really get into it, though did get to france on her for the weekend-electrics played up and had to keep bumping her which is all part of the fun!

    i want to clean up my front end (stone chips and just not been looked after really)
    i don't mind how it handles-ish. coming from a zx7r which was so well planted!

    i have limited money-as we all do? so do i get the forks cleaned up..nitride coated maybe etc..
    ...or look for a cleaner different set?

    What to do!?

    The busa swap was easy and I like the results added a wee bit of gold bling as well
    If all else fails WD40 and a hammer

      do busa forks fit straight on, and apart from bling are they any better than the tls standard forks?
      how much is nitride coating?
      if its not broken MOD it

          Any year Busa forks are a straight swap until they went radial in 2008.

          If you want really good brakes aswell then consider the GSXR Radial forks and calipers, I do various fitting kits depending on what year/combination of calipers you go for.

          It's worth noting that you still use the 320mm TL discs as opposed to the 298/310mm discs of the GSXR's hence why the brakes are soooo good
