Ok, so this thread is for which NON HORNET parts you have found to fit a Hornet.

Please make model names/numbers and Hornet years clear and keep it strictly on topic, all other posts will be removed.

Honda CBR600F3 forks (1995-1997).
Adjustable for preload and rebound damping, and are a cartridge type fork. Same 41mm diameter as the 1998-2004 hornets so drop straight into the yokes, match up with the hornet wheel, spacers and calipers. Only thing you'd need to do would be to fabricate some brackets to fit your mudguard, as neither the CBR one nor the hornet one will fit this setup. Best option is to combine the tops and internals of the CBR forks with the bottoms of your hornet forks, allowing you a literally bolt in replacement with no brackets needed.

Honda CBR600f4 and f4i forks (1998-2006).
Adjustable for preload, rebound and compression damping, are a cartridge type fork and offer the chance to fit better calipers (63mm mounting) so you've got a great choice, 4 piston nissins off the CBR600RR (03-04) are best, but Hornet 900, CBR600f4i, and a whole host of fireblade models also fit. THe 4 pot tokico calipers off the 2000-2003 GSXR-600/750 and SV1000 calipers should also fit on (although the nissins are a better caliper), and you can even fit the tokico 6 piston calipers from a K1/K2 GSX-R1000 (also fitted to the GSX1400). THe 6 piston calipers are very good calipers, but do need looking after to stay in top condition.
No matter what calipers you choose though the method of fitting these forks is the same, you'll need to get your existing yokes bored out to 43mm, and then they slide right in, line up with your wheel and spacers. Only thing you will need to do is to sand/file a couple mm off the caliper mounting lugs on the forks so that the calipers sit centrally on the discs.

Can you mount a CBR Oil sump (of any age) to a hornet? Or another year Hornet sump to a 2004 Hornet?

2011 Cbr600f steering stem and yokes fit 1999 hornet, thus allowing gold USD forks and 17'' front wheel. Standard hornet 2 piston calipers also fit the USD forks. :blahblah

Is this a straight swap or do you need to chop and change lengths barings etc?

engine on the CBR600F3 is the same as the early hornet and so CBR sump should fit!
all Hornet engines between 98-06 should swap sumps 8o

The bottom yoke with stem & bearings, forks and front wheel are all from the cbr and fit straight on. The top yoke is from a 2010 Hornet and again just fits straight on, no cutting or messing about.
The only reason I made a few brackets up were to keep the original headlight mounting bracket and indicators. See my post 'Done it!! CBR 600 FRONT END ONTO 99 HORNET' with a few photos and explanations. :)

Does anybody know of any models using decent shocks that will bolt into a '98 hornet? Like a late cbr600rr?

Looking for a cheaper alternative to a second hand performance shock, which would need a new spring and service anyway.

Balls :( Oh well.

Earlier in the thread you said mentioned the cbr600F3 front wheel. Will that serve asa replacement for the 16" front wheel in an early Hornet? Will the cbr600F3 brake discs fit aswell?

Which spacers and spindle do I need to use?

CBR600F3 wheel will need 01-06 17" hornet discs, you can use the hornet spindle and spacers

Thanks mate. I suspected that bit of info might be in the "fun in the shed" thread, but 54 pages is a lot to wade through. I couldn't find a search within thread function either and searching the forum gave hundreds ofirrelevant results.

Sorry if me flooding the boards with questions recently becomes annoying peeps. At least it will make it easier for others to find answers again at a later date.

Some one once said the F3 wheel from a "steel framed" CBR 600 F3 . Do you know if that's really true or can ALL F3 front rims work ?

I have a 2006 599 and want to do the CBR rim swap . I just found a mint 900RR rear rim , $100 !!

Looking forward to your reply .

Also , if any body know we're I can find a F3 front let me know .

Thank You !!

Any idea whether 95/96 Suzuki Bandit 600 forks would fit into my 99 hornet?

Using hornet yokes i would guess are they even the same diameter, his are 43mm.

I'm being offered them for free as mine are pretty bent after Sunday's shenanigans.

Hi All,
Does anyone know any parts that fit a 2008 CB600F ABS Hornet? Im looking specifically to get rid of the original big plastic `tail tidy`for a smaller more sleeker one as well as adding a belly pan. Any ideas would be a great help.
Thanks

Honda CBR600F4 and CBR600F4i Camshafts you can use on the Hornet 600

The F4i exhaust cam has an extra bit on the end of it, that the intake cam does not.
Image

You will need to cut it off
Image

Now you need to plug the end of the the camshaft hole you created or else your valves, cams, everything on the exhaust side won't get lubricated. I used steel.
Image

You need to make the bit a little larger than the hole (I used precision tools to measure).
Image

Press in the bit to plug it in
Image

And viola!
Image

They fit. Just look in the manual to see how they fit properly.

Cheers,

You won't have an option I'm afraid mate - no other shocks will work so your best bet is an aftermarket one for the hornet (keep an eye out on eBay as they pop up now and again).

Hagon shocks tend to come out at a fairly reasonable cost compared to some of the others, just don't expect the ride of some of the expensive ones! (probably better than the standard hornet one though...)

please read the original post, and OBEY!!!!!

the purpose of the FAQ section is to give advice, not ask questions, and this post is a list of alternative parts that fit.

If you want to ask if such-and-such will fit, then please use the regular model forums
