Default R1 Conversion

I am interested in an R1 conversion. That includes brakes and front forks. Can I use an R1 front tire on the Warrior? What is the list of parts that I need for project?

You can start with this Jon, https://rswarrior.com/forums/t/128124.aspx?PageIndex=1


Then if you need a set of legs, let me know and I'll give you the military discount just like the PX

Since you have an '08 MY I would recommend 06-08 R1 forks. The above posted link is a very, verygood start for research, but I came up with those older model (02-05)R1 parts didn't work with the newer Wariors.If I am wrong with that statement please correct me so that I may know and others willhave the knowledge also, I love learning about this bike and I would appretiate a correction if needed, thanks.


As far as my research went when I was looking into this for my '07 MY I came to a conclusion that I had to use 06-08 R1 forks because from a looks and parts stand point you can re-use the calipers from our Warrior on those forks. The tire situation will not work because the R1 has a smaller wheel. If you would like the part numbers needed for the front fender mounting hardwareI can PM them to you if you would like or can send you an online parts efiche catalog link thatI use from my local dealer. I never went though with my modifications because of funds right now (trying to pay it off this yearfirst)


Also I have not done this mod, so take my above suggestions with a grain of salt and hopefully some of the men that have this done on newer warriors can post up some help for you. Good luck

Actually I have an 05. My questino is I want the R1 whole front end (brakes, forks, fender, and front wheel if possible). I really just want to keep the top of the warrior handlebars. Is my bike really there? I wish I could go and take some things off of it

I just got all my parts to put an 08 R1 fork, brake, and, fender ( I am keeping the 19" front wheel) on my 07 Warrior. I just need the time to swap it out. Let me know how it goes for you.

Trying to build a clean Midnight. Take what the Warrior offers and take it to the next level. Good handling power cruiser with a custom look.
