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

Good afternoon newbie look for some help. I have a 2005 cbf500 I hope that still counts here. Had a slight off last week and bike now needs new forks, I'm hoping to make good use of the off road time with some upgrades and was wondering what works best for a sensible price. Possibly a front end swap if there is an easy effective option or replace the forks and upgrade the internals and a matching shock, new flatter bars and a brake upgrade. I would love any help or advice Thank you

Welcome mate! Sorry to hear you had a spill, glad it wasn't too bad.
I haven't had any experience upgradfing the front end but I'm sure one of the guys will be along that has.

You can convert to the twin disc set up from the CBF600 easily, as I believe the forks and wheel are already set up for the 2nd disc and caliper. The master cylinder may need changing to deal with the extra capacity but it's straightforward stuff, CBF500 AND 600 forks are very much the same thing.
