F4 750s non standard forks?

Hi Guys,

Hope everyone is well.

I wanted to find out if the forks on my f4 750s 2001 are non standard.
I have had a look at other bikes and it would seem this is true, my forks are gold whereas I believe the original ones are silver.
Can anyone shed any light on this please? Are they non standard? Are they an upgrade or part from another F4?

Please see attached pics:



Thanks

Current bike: F4 750S

Don't the original forks have red caps? What do the clickers and spring pre-load adjuster look like?

The axle clamps are original.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

The original forks have red caps and silver inner legs.

The uppers are gold.

The adjusters look like this:



Hmm I have blue caps and gold inner legs??
What do you think?

Now that I look at it I think my brake fluid reservoir may be non standard also?!

Thanks

The brake master is non-standard.

The front fender has been modified with that vent screen and paint, too.

The master brake cylinder and lever looks to have been switched out also.

Good eye. Those appear to be fasteners used on Ducati Race fairings....or at least they are the same as the fasteners used on the Shark Skinz that used to live on my 748.
