Im going to buy a low mileage 7r at some point over the next month or so. Does anyone know what front end is a reasonably easy swap? Ive seen some pictures of 7rs with Ohlins forks and Brembo calipers......which i like the look of. Any suggestions?

The plan is to make it look similar to the number 9 WSBK..

I'll warn you. I spent thousands modifying a ZX7R (Ohlins/OZ Wheels/blueprinted motor, Harris everything, etc) and it still wasn't that great afterwards.

I know its possible to fit a zx10r or a zzr14 front end but cant remember what years fit best, also the aprilia 'banana' swing arm also fits the rear quite well.

I also spent way too much money upgrading my old zx7r, even swapped the engine from a 9r.
Now with 100% more sarcasm.

Ahhhhhhh  boys.......... thats not what i wanted to hear!!! Why wasn't the bike any good after the upgrades? Is there a common issue?
