2012 F4RR Ohlins forks on a 2005 F4

Let's hope this works. I don't see why it shouldn't

For anyone curious, this is what I have so far.

2012 F4RR 56mm top triple
2012 F4RR 56mm clip ons
2012 F4RR Ohlins forks or MV Special Parts forks (same thing) which are 56mm top and 58mm bottom allowing for use of the 05 lower triple and stem
Brembo M4 Monoblocks 100mm spacing with 1098 brake lines. (I eyeballed the brake lines and I think the orientation should work)
Waiting for a set of 320mm rotors and an axle from a radial bike.
Ducati 1098s caliper bolts work as well.

I need axle spacers and a few screws and nuts and I think we're in business. Will keep you guys posted. Would also love some feed back if you feel I am not taking something into consideration when doing this swap. Will look deeper into the set up tomorrow. Cheers!

Thanks Andrew. I wonder why this hasn't been attempted yet. Well at least none that has been posted on the forums.

Quick update. Picked up a Bursig stand since I don't have rafters to hang the bike on. The set up fits so far other than loosing the steering lock once you use the newer top triple which is required for the 56mm Ohlins top. Everything seems to be lining up however, the clip ons don't seem to agree with the older master cylinders. I stopped messing with them for now. Will try to finish up this week. If it doesn't work, the solution should be some RCS MCs. Cheers

In process


Look ma, no hands!


Forks on


Brembos on

How do you even get to the triple clamps with a torque wrench, anyway, job well done mate.

Haven't torqued them to spec just yet. I wanted to make sure everything somewhat fits first. Will attempt that this weekend.

Very cool mate, that's some nice gear.
As a side note, did you make a note of your ride height of the old forks before you took it off, how much different in height/lenght is there compared to the new forks ?

I did not. I figured I'd adjust as needed. Will have it set up proper once all together. I've ran into a few problems so far. The 56mm F4RR clipons are not similar to the F41000s ones. The geometry is off by quite a bit and the OEM master cylinders hits the fork leg. So my solution was to make a spacer for the OEM 58mm one that came from my bike. That took care of that.

I thought It was full steam ahead and it turns out the radial axle spacers do not work with the F4RR ohlins. This leads me to believe that the F4RR OEM wheel center hub is wider than the older bikes. From what I could tell from the Startwin microfiche, The F4RR only runs an internal wheel spacer then has 2 bearings on the outside and the axle goes right through. So now I have to do more research to see what I can do to achieve proper axle spacing. That and brake line orientation and we're in business!

Sheet metal spacer. About 1.2mm thickness


Everything up top looks good so far.


wheel spacing is the hold up right now.

Thumbs up

Cool, very nice story you have going here mate.

I'm pretty sure the wheel width is the same as we figured from some of the other threads, I might be wrong.
So the axle you have fits into you old wheel without problems ? Which spacers have you got at the moment, the one's from our radial axle set-up ? What's the axle diameter ?
