A Daytona and Speed Triple 97/01 frame will take a 02/04 motor also the new1050 05/06 motor will also fit. This works both ways a 1050 frame can have a Daytona motor!!
Differences between the two frames. The 02/04 frame has a center bolt hole for the tank and the 97/01 has the two lugs for the tank. So 97-01 tank is not compatable with the 02-06.
The 02/04 frame has a small lug at the bottom of the Swingarm bolt to mount the exhaust to, not important if you are using a light weight can.
1050 Speed Triple front and rear:
The rear wheel and Swingarm setup will fit all models Daytona and Speed Triple frames 97/04 no mods are required.
1050 Sprint front and rear:
The rear wheel and Swingarm setup will fit all model Sprint frames 97/04 no mods are required.
To fit a Sprint rear-end into a Daytona or Speed Triple frame. You will need to use the SSSA shocker and linkage for that type of frame.
1050 Speed Triple:
Complete front-end will fit all model frames 97/04 Daytona and Speed Triple, no mods required.
Speedo drive? The 1050 dose not have a front wheel speedo drive. You can modify the wheel to fit one easy enough, or you can use the front sprocket to pic up a signal like on the gsxr motors.
1050 Speed Triple rotors have a 135mm center to center this is 5mm more than any of the 97 to 04 Daytona, Speed Triple and Sprints wheels.
You can use the 02/04 5 stud rotors to fit the wheel to a standard 97/04 offset of 130mm
1050 Sprint front wheel rotor offset is 130mm that’s the same as all 97/04 models
1050 Sprint and Speedy wheels have gone to the bigger 97/01 axle size. Fitting the front wheel to a 02/04 Daytona or Speed Triple will require a change of bearings or a sleave fitted to the bearings to reduce the inside diameter.
1050 Speed Triples:
The subframe, seat, rear panels and tank will fit the early model frames no problem. Tank will not fit the 97-01.
97-01 Front wheel has a larger diameter axle than 02-04. This diameter matches the 1050, as well as the 02-06 GSXR 1000 (for front end swap).
