Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

The cylinder head is different although it can be used if you blank off the air passages. The CB head is a straight fit. The speedometer pick up is from the top of the gearbox as it has electronic clocks. The CB airbox fouls the sensor so it would need to be blanked off. The gearbox output shaft is 5mm longer which positions the sprocket out by 5mm.
And welcome by the way.
