Can someone tell me if the forks off a 996 will bolt straight up to an S2R800 without modifying the triples?

no, it's different.

(there are complete articles on the process in the link)

basically, you need to either replace the triples with parts specifically made for the project (like CycleCat) or shim the bottom and bore the top stock triples to fit the superbike forks

And I'm a pretty lazy man. ;D

Well, not really lazy, but I have so little time in my life these days, I don't want to spend any excess time or brain space on complicated mods. Rather get the mods done quick and spend my time riding.

ST2 forks are the way to go for your specific needs.

Q ;D

Bore out the stock top clamp, get the shims for the lower triple from MotoWheels and you're done. Everything from there is cake.

Its worth it.

then get clip-ons or bar risers because the 996 for tubes are longer. ask me how i know. ;)



oh and once they are set up for your weight, they are worth it.

How high up on the forks are your clipons mounted? They look only slightly lower than stock bars. How hard was it rerouting all of the lines?

those are 2.5 inch riser. they're flush with the bottom of the top triple. they a little lower than stock, just with different angle and sweep. re-routing was simple (i had to remove the cluster, headlight, and U-bracket), ok, so maybe not "simple"

I did it...had the triple bored out to 53mm and used the shim kit from Motowheels for the lower triple, but instead of clip ons got the Rizoma conical low bar mount and finished it off with the Suburban Machinery handlebars.

That looks pretty slick with the Suburban Machinery bars. I just waiting for the clipons and shims before I jump in and strap everything onto the bike. What is the deal with the motowheels shims though? $15 for two strips of stainless, or am I missing something?

Hey Vinny,
I've got the .5mm shimstock from when I made mine and you're welcome to it. Ping me outside of this place and we can meet up.

Those forks look great BTW.

I painted them... 3 coats of satin black enamel, and one coat of matte black. Didnt want to break them down to powder coat them or have them annodized black. Hopefully they will hold up to rock chips.

Thanks Terry, Ill shoot you a pm
