i have 05 forks on my 01 you need forks calipers wheel spacers & axle from 05/06 & 5mm spacers unless you use 05/06 rotors then the stock spacers are fine.the clip ons & tripples off your 01 will fit no problem.i would suggest a master cylinder from a 05/ 06 also unless you can afford a brembo.
what is the difference in the axles and spacers? Is it the diameter of the lower attach point of the 05/06 forks that differs from the 01 forks? It must not be the wheel bearings since there is no mention of needing an 05/06 wheel.
done it! i do really like it. now i gotta dial the front suspension in. Anyone have good settings (preload, rebound and comp.) to start with for the 05-06 forks on the 01 1000? I hate messing with suspension settings!!
I just recieved my 06 forks today, just have to make the caliper spacers and figure out the spacing for the rear shock, and should i get some caliper bolts that are longer to compensate for the spacers??
I have been told alot of different things on the rear shock adjustment, but the most consistant is that i will need a couple to three washers stacked between the shock and the top mounting bracket to drop the rear height some because the 06 forks are shorter. I measured and they are bout 3/16 shorter. For the most part I will be hitting twisties and back country roads so i am looking for the most user friendly setup.
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.

so I finally got everything back together and I love the brakes!
only one problem, my brake lever is hitting my farring stay when at full left turn?!?
its like the master cylinder is too long
anyone else have this problem?
