Sorry Folks!
I should introduce myself.I`m a bike enthusiast from SW Florida.I`m 36 still riding occasionally.I have an 08 1125R which I recently bought and shortly after wrecked.
A follow up on my topic:I couldn`t find any used front end part anywhere,but plenty of XB parts out there.

You can use XB wheels and Tires, but im not sure about forks, I would guess they are the same diameter and length but you could prolly find out on Buells website if you click the bike and then click on its specs and it should show you fork length and diameter.

Edit: I looked through my catalog and it doesnt show any of the XB forks as being compatible with the 1125. they have very specific forks for each XB model, so I guess thats a "No"

Hey Guys!
Thanks for the help.I guess the answer is a no.1125R has 47mm forks,xb 41mm. Buell website says.That is sucks,I have to ring the local Buell,but probably they don`t have it in stock.I`m fine though, damage mostly in my soul.

I think the cg had 41mm and all others had 43mm. Why not change the forks and triple clamps just to be sure it all fits together
