planning my winter modding session on the TBS and think I'm getting close to a plan. I've combed through quite a few of the posts but, although I have a finished product in mine, I haven't been able to come up with a definitive list of "other parts" needed such as gaskets and the like. This is particularly pertinent to the cam swap as well as any mag wheel swap tips.
As for the plan, it involved an USD front end, mag wheels, green can swap, and some necessary maintenance. Below is my admittedly crappy photoshop rendering of what I'm planning:
Suspension & Wheels:
k6 GSXR 600 forks. Specs: 738mm stock length + 15mm extenders = 752mm overall length (29.6"). 310mm rotor size. All balls racing fork swap bearings ordered. I lucked out finding a set of used forks that have GP suspension internals & extenders and that were set up for a 175lb (in gear) rider, which is just about my weight.
05+ zx6r front wheel with zx14 310mm rotors. I am unsure of the width of the hub so hopefully will work with the gsxr forks. Gsxr wheels are out as I hate 3 spoke wheels with a passion and would prefer not to relive the 90s.
zx6r shock (no real need for it but I have one sitting around and it's more compact than the TBS remote reservoir shock).
05+ zx6r rear wheel with zx11 250mm rotor and 530 sprocket. Trophy rear brake assembly (caliper, bracket, torque arm). The rotor diameter is 5mm less than the Trophy, but that's less than 1/10 an inch of reduced pad contact, so I'm not too worried.
I don't know for sure that any of the above will work, but I think it's worth a shot and hey, that's half the fun of custom stuff. I really want to switch to mags as this is my daily rider here in NYC and sits out on the street all riding season. Mags are lighter, easier to maintain, fit standard size sportbike tires, and infinitely easier to clean. If I can't get the zx6r wheels to fit, I'll throw em back on ebay and pick up an 08+ Harley narrow glide dual disc hub and hayabusa rotors or the cognito moto front hub and stick with spokes.
Green cams & rejet
igniter off 98hp Triple or programmable unit
change fluids & flush cooling system
for this, I assume I need a head gasket as well as 25mm shims. I'm going to get a Haynes manual prior to going down this road, but could certainly use some real world pointers as well as a parts shopping list for gaskets, shims, etc.
