You would also need to change over the triple trees as the fork diameters are different.After reading everyone's posts, I am just wanting to confirm would I be able to purchase s1000rr forks for the pure model?
Did you manage to get a solution to this? I just bought a set of 14 s1000rr forks to fit to my 18 classic and boom, axle is different as is the abs ring. Just ordered the s1000rr axle but may have to change wheel bearings to suit but the abs sensor will be a pain to fit.Just a note for anyone contemplating the S1000RR fork swap.
It only works on the 2014-16 "Classic". It doesn't appear to work on the 2017 & up "classic" with with the small abs ring front wheel assy.
This is a nice upgrade on the 2014-16 classic but be careful if you have a 2017 or later "classic". It looks like while the forks will go into the triple clamps there may be an issue with the R9T "small abs ring" axle / wheel fitting the S1000RR fork lowers.
