Great info Hasha! Thanks for taking the time to do that much of a write up for me.
Good to know about the mc. Ive believe Ive read in the past on whos knows what thread Longhair saying the stock mc was adequate, but as stated info overload, so I may be mistaken. Also, hope I can keep it as such, cuz asv c5 levers arent cheap!, and Id probly have to get a different one for a different mc. Glad you got the silver r6 blocks, I did as well but was unsure how theyd look on bike vs gold, seeing your pic confirmed my choice.
The chosen forks and and rear shock were primarily based on stock spring rates and damping ability, with cost factored in as well. Stock SR meaning closest needed for my weight from the factory. Racetech calls for if I remember w/o re-looking it up .93 front and 9.2 rear. 06 gsx1k front are .95 according to the infamous swap permutation chart, and the zx6r is a 9.1, so Im in close proximity to needed springs right out of the gate. As the bike sits now I get epic pogoing from the rear, and damn near bottoming out from the front on braking. With gear Im 240-50ish (not lard, Im 6'4 lol) Ive been through many a thread about guys my weight loving the 6r shock, which influenced my purchase.
As far as trail, Im not beyond fork extenders if I need them, Id really like to keep the 06 forks. I know looks are trivial to performance, but I fell in love with the bronze stanchion and black tube. Also, according to seller, the bike these were pulled from, owner apparently went track bike ohlins on it as soon as purchased, so the forks are damn near brand new. When was the last time you saw 11yo red anodized preload adjusters that are cherry red and not faded out??? I know I havent...
Plus, steering stops are completely unscathed, stock top triple has no scratches, and no scuffs or scratches on the black axle clamps. The price point was there, and couldnt find any as clean as these for the same price.
