Wow, awesome work! You would be the right person to ask this:

Will the 2012-2016 swing arm fit easily on the 2008-2011 model of CBR 1000rr?

I have the 2011 model and would like to swap out the stock swing arm with a 2015 SP swing arm with ohlin shock.

Also, I am thinking of swapping out the whole steering stem assembly with one from the 2015 SP that has ohlin forks and brembro brakes. Will that be exact fit too?
Yes they will fit, im running 2014 components on my 08 frame no issues, the front you may want to swap all the tripod together do, cuz think ohling front strut its thicker, rear swing complete with shock should be also straight fitment.

Thanks for the update. I have a 2008 and was thinking about doing some upgrades. Also, with the front end, is that plug and play? Thanks

Nisanda, I think he means installing the entire front end without modification to the frame.

Aboogie, Yes you can install the newer forks and triple trees with no modifications to the frame/headstock. Like Nisanda mentioned, the SP ohlins forks are slightly thicker, so you need the SP upper and lower fork clamps (triple trees)

Nisanda,

The 2008 has the bank angle sensor behind front fairing, correct?
From what you wrote and what I see in diagrams bank angle sensor on 2017 - 2019 is on the crankcase. Does that mean that you don't have a working bank angle sensor and neutral switch?

Thanks!

Don't know what diagram you looking at, but its up front by the horn. Defo not on the crankcase
This is what somebody else on this forum wrote to me:
"I ended up doing a 2018 on my 2009 frame. Fits like a glove on the 08-16 frame and you can even use your 08-16 exhaust, throttle bodies, ecu, sensors, ect. Everything bolts right up to the new 17-18 motor. Only thing to watch out for is the neutral switch, the new motor comes with a bank angle sensor in that area, but i believe theres a way to make it work as a neutral switch, tbh ive been too lazy to look since idc about a neutral light. Other than that everything works. Just have to swap your knock sensor from the old motor to the new. "

I'm planning to use every accessory off my 2008 bike on the 2017 motor. I know harness is different in terms of dash, but will I still have neutral switch and bank angle sensor with this 2017 motor and 2008 harness?

The 2017 does not use a knock sensor, so how are you guys determining where to place the carry over old sensor?

Bank angle sensor on the 17 is attached to the back of the headlight assembly.

No clue. I haven't even received motor yet. Been 2 weeks in the mail now...
So what is this guy talking about then:

???

Yes behind and between the lights, i use the stock 08 sensor, its basically a kill switch like the red power button.

I do have a working bank angle sensor the neutral switch and gears on dash, remember i use only the frame, front and rear suspension of the 08, the rear its all 2017 harness, throttles, air box ,drive by wire and hand controls.

Recently i got my radiator pinch by a rock at high speed and started to leak under preassure, so i tried some aluminum radiators and silicone hoses for to do some upgrades.

Very happy on this hot weather the bike doesn't even go above 214 stuck in traffic, and drop way quicker if you start moving.

Wow brother! Thats amazing! I am living in Florida right now due to Coronavirus, I am from Brooklyn originally and i miss my SV650s so i was bored and bought an ‘08 1000rr out here and blew engine in less than 1k miles. Its 95 degrees Fahrenheit out here average and the oil starvation plus extreme temps didn’t save bike on my way to key west! Thank God we had a chase truck to bring it back to shop 300 miles away from breakdown! Please Nisanda, share those radiator and hoses with me. Bike is staying in Florida because no reason i need a liter bike in NYC. Thank you for all help! Should i build on this thread with my swap or start a new one?
