Re: 06 1000 forks swap to an 01 1000
their are differences between all model forks. springs being the most noticable but all will work. as far as brakes go i think only the pads are different, im not sure about the calipers but i know they are interchangable. as far as the rear goes you want to raise it abit. 5mm is usually the standard, just get real spacers or go to home depot and get some large washers and stack them. as far as the front is concerned you generally wanted a little of the forks going through the triples anyway (again 5mm is about standard starting point). start with the front flush and try it but i think youll end up at 5mm showing anyway aling with the 5mm out back. makes the bike much more responsive and easier to turn but its all up to the rider how they like their bikes. either case the bike will be fine to ride leaving the back alone and just have the front flush but i think youll want to maxamize the suspension.
