How do I identify specially what year(s) the GSXR front end is I put on my SV? If I take a picture will any of you guys be able to tell me specifically what year it is? I want to shop for a spare front wheel for it.

If it's the whole front end ....

The triples are different colors, the fork lowers / brake mounts are different.

Did you use your wheel or did it come with one ?

Did you use your rotors or did it come with them ? Stock Rotors ?

It's the whole entire front end. I bought it all. Trees, forks, wheel, brakes. I will take some pictures and post. Just want to be sure it's an 05.

What others said.

600 and 750 have the chrome tubes, whereas 1000 had the coated lower tubes.

So what other models wheel will fit on the 04-05 600 front? Or can I only shop for those 2 specific years of the 600? Need a spare front wheel for rains. No need for a rear yet. Going to run the stock SV rear for a while.

Nick, total guess here, but for the front I wanna say 02 thru 05 on that front wheel.
