    I know that that it is compatible, but will there be any problem if the left fork is from an 08 and the right fork will be the 09. Also what is the difference between the first 2 complete assemblies on here http://www.mrcycles.com/fiche_section_detail.asp?section=959396&category=Motorcycles&make=Honda&year=2009&fveh=26223

    @Aidan it’s prob best you purchase forks as the same pair because depending on where you purchase a fork…u might run into a risk of one fork being sprung and valve differently than that of the other fork. however if you plan on having both the ’08 and ’09 rebuilt together than the you should not have an issue. It’s just when you’re installing an ’08 fork and ’09 fork without confirming they are identically valve and sprung you will run into performance issues and more or less your safety on the bike. As for your 2nd question the different forks you referred to might have to do with the fact one is for an abs model and the other is a non-abs model…might need to have some confirm that but since you’re looking at an ’09 fork than that would be a logical conclusion since abs came to the cbr in ’09.
