CBR1000RR Front End?
Hello, I am new to the forum, having bought my CB yesterday. The bike has 39 miles and lots of cosmetic damage from an off and what looks like a long slide on the left side. Clear title, thank goodness. So am am going to start a cafe racer project.

Has anyone tried fitting a CBR1000RR entire front end? Are the steering stems the same? If not, can you press the CB stem into the CBR front end? I was going to just buy the front end and try it, but I decided to ask the experts first.

Thanks,

Carl.

G’day Cafe Project. Welcome to the forum. New members’ first posts require approval, which it now has. I’ve deleted the other one and you’re good to go.

The price of admission is before, during and after photos of your project. Just kidding, but it would be nice. Smile

Here is a link to some before photos. Going to go and measure up a CBR tomorrow night....

Started it and rode it around (I didn't fall off) and it still even smells new.

I can’t get the pics to work. It wants me to create an account. No.

Popgun, because it's you complaining, just this once, I'll repost the pictures so you can see.

I'd be OK if that were my bike. I live in a right hand drive country and could ride along on the left so that people driving by would never see the mess on the other side. Tongue

that looks to be the perfect platform for your project. Good luck with it and please do share some pics as you progress. Now to 'lean on' a recent Cormanus post... ain't nothin' better than watchin' a busted up cb1100 blossom into a cafe racer!
