yep...the fork tubes do fit. There are a few threads about this swap...just use the search feature. I'm sure someone else will chime in about what years are the best and so on...

I want the same deal for mine...with the R1 fender too.

I've done it thanx to the advice and input from a few of the folks here. Worth the time and energy. Too much good info to list here. You can do a search under R1 forks or under my username.

I just did that mod, with some tech advice from mdfdwarrior (thanks Thom!) No problem what so ever, it was a walk in the park. I havent been able to try it yet, as it is still cold winter here in Sweden.

Whats the situation with the difference in weight between the two bikes?
Does there have to be mods to the spring rate etc?
Sounds too easy to be a straight swap!

It's possible. Just depends on what year R1 you use. They all can be used, it just depends if you are going to retain the Warrior front brakes. If you have the entire assembly from an R1, then it's easy.

I did this on my 02 with 04 radial mount caliper R1 forks. I used a 03-06 R6 front wheel. Your stock 06 wheel will accept the larger 320mm rotor that originally came with the 04-06 R1 if you should choose to use them.
