Hi guys, new here due to an ambitious project. I’m looking to upgrade my 1987 VF1000F which has already received some work before I bought it (so for the purists; I’m not destroying a mint original bike, haha).
The idea is to upgrade the bike with some modern parts like swingarm, front forks, brakes, wheels, and suspension.
Now, with limited time available I am looking to gather as much information from behind my desk so I can already get some parts in before first having to take the bike apart and measure it before I can look for parts, wait for them, and put them in (I’m sure a few of you know why).
I’ve learned that a CBR600RR swingarm from earlier models slides right in (correct me if I’m wrong) and I was wondering if anyone knows options that are equally accepted at the front. I believe the VTR1000SP(1) forks fit, but I wondered if anyone would be able to tell me the measurements (primarily length and diameter of the stem and its bearings).
I hope I’m not over-asking; just trying to create a smooth(er) sailing project that I can progress on in the midst of raising a newborn and having a dayjob.
Thanks a lot for all your help!
