i did a search for this, and only saw one reference to it so i wanted to make sure... are the 04-06 R1 forks identical to the 05 R6 fork? i know they're both 50mm, and have radial brake mounts. they even look identical (except the R1 gold forks for obvious reasons).

i'm trying to find a direct replacement to my 05 R6 forks, but I'm having a hard time finding ones in good condition. so i'm trying to expand my options to the 04-06 R1 forks if they're an exact match.

I think the R1 forks will be shorter. And you will have to mount the clip ons underneath the triple clamp. Also, the rotors on the R1 are larger so the caliper wont be lined up correctly with the rotor. Of course you can upgrade to the R1 rotors.

i use woodcraft clipons, so that's not a big deal. but turns out the R1 forks are slightly different, rotor size and fork travel is slightly larger than the R6. oh well, i guess i could make it work but it won't be a direct fit with just the forks alone.
