Yah what model and year CBR? Also it looks like the chain would grind on the swing arm. Are you replacing the chain guard frequently?

Yes bolt in but you will need to remove the stock muffler and part of the bracket that holds the muffler. Shock is fully customizable. No remote res.

I think it is an 02. Swingarm guard is in good shape after 13k miles with the shock.

When do you expect to get your shock? I am anxious to see it on the bike.

Not yet, won't fit on the 650 as the racks I made are a bit too close. I was thinking about burying my dead cat in it or renting it out as garage space.

Migitizing or Midgetizing? Just get a step ladder I can see why you like the engine, just traded for a Futura.

Hope you are somewhere south and warm.

Oh what fun. So what years work best for this project? Im seeing some cheap Ninjas. Also what dirt bike works best? Im guessing the forks are the the most difficult part. Actually it all sound too easy. And fun.

allright i have my front end apart so i'm trying to figure out the stem bearing issues. the ninja has 35x55mm bearings. your R1 stem had a 30mm stem, so you turned a 35x30 spacer on your lathe?

i have a stem with 30 and 28 id bearings. i have found a 30x55 bearing (honda) but can't find a 28x55mm bearing. anybody know of one?

i just bought a lathe so maybe a 28x35 spacer is a doable learner project

this is a cool website for conversion info revealing that aprilia and ducati use the same steering tube dimensions as kawasaki fyi

That is an awesome site

Back when I did the front end I remember buying the race/bearing set with 55mm od (headstock id on 650r) with the smallest id I could find.

You are on the right track with the spacer. That would be a great first project for your lathe. You do need to be very accurate as it is a press fit so the tolerances are rather tight.
