Hi all,

Looking to step up my build over the winter and am considering a front end swap on my CB650.
Heard GSXR front forks are pretty common swaps with Hondas, wondering if anyone out there knows of other good forks to swap?

Some might say it's sacrilege but the bike I got was beyond restoration so I want to have some fun with it
Love the look of the neo-cafe naked styling on a vintage bike

Here is my design inspiration: classifiedmoto.com/motorcycles/cb836-cm/

Was you looking at just a fork tube swap or? Whole kit and combootle.

The best thing you can do is make sure the bearing are tapered, if they are not make them so... and make sure the forks are at their proper level with the fork oil, AND good seals in place.

Outside of that I would have to research the same stuff you can do except you have one of the bikes in your stable to measure in comparison.

I don't know if this chart will help you or not it is old and missing a lot of newer bikes.

Going for the whole front end, but that PDF is very helpful in case I was going to end up swapping just the fork tubes, so thank you
Trying to find what bike has a front end that easily mates onto mine
Found a GSXR mating bolt but was really just looking for any other bikes that are common
