Got my new front end! Updated Pics!

Just got it, haven't got it on yet but can't wait. Rode all day and it needs it. This bike will be transformed with a suspension upgrade. This is a 2006 zx6r forks, radial calipers and radial master cylinder. Hope it fits!

srleadjb-nice progress shots.

I'm very interested in your ongoing results.
Are you planning a remount of the stock fender?

Are you looking to use a zx6r fender? I'm just thinking about the bolt pattern am I correct about this that they are likely different?

How did the stock fork length compare to the the Z's fork length? (I'm wondering what rake/trail #'s the Z's front will have on the ST.)

Good luck and keep up with the pics.

Looking good mate! I'm assuming that those ZX6 forks fitted the ST3 triple clamps without any mods? Were the forks the same thickness where each of the triple clamps clamp up?

Looking forward to hearing how it all works on the road. Good luck for the rest of it.

Yeah the forks are the same thickness. They are a little longer so they'll have to come up higher in the triple clamps. The only real mod is the axle and a couple of 4mm spacers for the brake calipers......so far anyway.
