SP1 parts on an SP2?

a few questions

I am parting out a donor SP1 to put my '03 SP2 back together. I wanna see what problems I'm gonna run into. I am borrowing from the SP1 subframe, brakes, forks, rear shock. Anything I should worry about?

1.does an SP1 subframe fit on an SP2 frame?
2.does SP1 triple tree fit on an SP2 frame?

thanks in advance

If you have just a few bits that need changing, you may want to sell off your SP1 parts and by the SP2 parts, mainly the subframe and triples. Most will go over, but I would get the proper SP2 stuff for the subframe and triples!

Good luck on the build!!

SP1 shock won't work on a SP2. Mounting points are different I think

The shock will actually work, they are the same (little different actually) but bolt the same.

My main concern is triple,brakes and subframe. I rushed into buying one for parts so when I found a 2000 which had lots of upgrades, I jumped on it.

I have a set of forks from my 2003 RC-51 that i am looking to sell. Just replaced them with Ohlins forks. If your interested let me know I'll give you a good price. They only have 220 miles on them.

The SP1 triples are not going to work on your 2003, you need the SP2 triples.

I have a set, here http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Honda...d=p3911.c0.m14

Mine is just the opposite. Everything from a 2003 was swapped onto a 2000 frame. I didn't do the swap, I got the bike like this. The only problem I've noticed with the triple is the steering lock didn't line up perfectly with the hole. I had to open it up a little to get the piston to clear the outside of the hole.

sp2 tripples have a larger post, so it will fit if you use the sp2 bearings,as for the brakes,sp1 rotors are a differant width then sp2 but will interchange,sp2 subframe fits an sp1 but unsure of the reverse, shocks are the same bolt up, hope this helps
