So far cant say much difference . Still getting things set up though . Most of it was my old forks need to be freshen up and the gold was wearing a bit . Bought these cheaper than buying parts .

hey, does the 03 fork just fix right up to 01 without any modifications??i thought it would require you to change the brake rotors, and 03 front wheel....do you need??

anyway thts looks nice, wish you could share on how you go about doing this....

To put the 03 forks on you just need 10mm spacers for the calipers , 70mm bolts to install the calipers ( 10mm longer ) , a 03 front fender and a set of 03 brake lines . You can use the 01 triples , axle , wheel and rotors . You need the brake lines because the 03's are a couple inches longer than the 01's .

I've been considering doing that swap myself. Are the brakes noticeably better? I figure the 04 forks are the same, how about the 05?

Pipe is a full Ti Graves . Really Graves is just a rebadged Ti Force with a different mount . Works good though .
