    I ordered one from them last month...........it was the 30x47x13

    But I used it to put the busa front end into my chop frame thats head tube is based on the gsxr / gsxf

    the bearing worked a treat for me and only took 6 days to turn up

            The setup makes it to the UK, how awesome is that for me! I am so glad to see that many are liking this setup. Good luck to all of you and feel free to send PM's if you have any questions or maybe just talk shop.

                  The Katana upper is 25x47x15
                  Hayabusa 30x47x12


                  47mm is ~1.85"
                  3mm is ~1/8"


                  If you want to use the Hayabusa bearing kit with your swap, use a 1.85" dia 1/8" thick washer drilled to fit over the stem under the lower race or on top of the upper bearing. Saves buying a $40 bearing to do the swap.

                  Best to drill the center with 30mm bit and file it out a little so it's slightly oversized enough to drop over the stem without you having to touch it. The fit on the stem will keep it from going off-center and potentially putting undue stress on the bearing race under load vertical loads.

                  Yes, I'm cheap.

                        You can use a Hayabusa rear shock but you will need custom dog bones because the Busa shock is longer than the Katana shock. I haven't done this on a 06 but sure would like to see what others have to say about possible shock swaps.
