Firestorm Suspension upgrade

Discussion in 'Modifications and Projects' started by Casper68, Jan 5, 2010.

  1. Hi All,
    I would like to hear from anyone that could inform me if it is possible to replace the stock front suspension on a 2001 model VTR 1000 with CBR 600 or Fireblade forks.What other components would have to be changed to accomodate this modification?
    Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.

    Keep the shiny side up!

  2. Try & find a VTR specific forum to ask on, they will know which forks go on with the least amount of effort.

    Can't help you any more than that, sorry. Good luck! (& welcome!)
  3. fellow i know took his bike to promeicha and had them set it up specifically for him...

    worked a treat.
  4. 954 Fireblade forks will slip right in and I believe a set of forks from some model gsxr.

    Or, just use two of these

    With the above option though, you won't notice any difference over the stock forks :D
  5. +1 thats what i'm lead to believe aswell
  6. i do appreciate your help,
  7. Thanks lads, that gives me somewhere to start ,much appreciated.
    Keep shiny side up!
  8. You'll want to look at the shock too.
  9. Will the VTR wheel and brakes need replacing aswell with CBR954 items?
