I have an opportunity to pick up a complete 2000 R6 front end from clip ons to tire and was curious if it will fit my 73 CB750? I know the head bearing is a different size, but my main concern is stem length.

I found that site once but only saw GSX-R conversions. Finally saw page two with R6 stuff. Thank you, sir.

For what it's worth I've cut the stem out of my CB550 lower and pressed it into my GSX-r lower for a cost of zero dollars. I made a special swage tool, then just pinned it for safety.

I've done it to several bikes actually.

I'd like to use the entire front end though. Which I would assume requires some kind of spacer for the head bearing or something to fit the R6 top tree on the CB stem. I'm no fabricator yet, so spending the extra coin looks like the only way.

Yes, you can take the stem out of your existing tree, swage it into the new triples and run the stock bearings for the frame. Zero dollars. Done to both of these bikes.

If you think like that then it will be! All of us started out as complete novices with no skills or tools...

The only tools you need are a grinder, a drill, and a harbor freight press... The latter you're going to need for the Cognitomoto stem anyway.

That 550 exhaust kicks ass! Did you make it yourself?

Yeah. Cylinders 2 and 3 cross in the front, too

Sorry for the derail.
