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?
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!
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
