Showa Front Forks

I have a 2007 ZX-10r (GEN 2). I'm not interested in replacing the seals on the stock front forks. I would like to replace the front forks with either Ohlins or Showa. I checked on the Ohlins website and they don't show complete front fork sets for my 2007. Checked out the Showa website and it's not very helpful either. Anyone know which Ohlins or Showa front forks fit the GEN 2 2007 ZX-10r? thanks

Ohlins has discontinued the forks for the 1st and 2nd Generation ZX10r's. You would be looking for Ohlins FG352 forks. They are 743mm in length, which is 13mm longer than the Gen 1 Ohlins forks.

Thanks for the reply. So you're saying Ohlins discontinued the front forks for Gen 2, but is the "FG 352" a complete front fork set and is it still available...if so, where. Thanks..

The FG353 is the Ohlins part number for the complete Ohlins "Road and Track" forks for your Gen2. Ohlins has stopped making them, so you would need to find them used if you wanted a set. I just bought a set of used Ohlins forks for my Gen1, but the guy I bought them from did not have the parts I needed for my axles to fit. Ohlins quit making them to, so now I am having to have a machine shop fabricate them for me. Just be careful if you buy a set of used forks that they come with ALL THE PARTS YOU NEED.

As ZX10Rip said the ohlins model number for a 2007 ZX10r R&T Fork is "FG352". BUT you cannot get them from Ohlins anymore, they are discontinued.

Showa doesnt make a "aftermarket" fork. Your best bet is to buy a cartridge kit and install it in your stock forks.
