This might be a dumb question but you'll never learn if you dont ask I guess...

But are all/most japanese bikes compatible? If I wanted to throw a honda front end on my kawi or what ever, or a longer swing arm from a suzuki ....ect ect. would they fit just because they are all metric jap bikes with out a doubt? Or still a good amount of research or modding will have to be done?

Thanks.

some bikes do have compatible parts but alot of times some fab/modding is necessary...it really depends on what you're after....i had to swap a neck stem to get a set of yamaha forks on a yamaha but a cb550 rear wheel bolted right into axle plates for a yamaha....really depends...research and trial and error
