Praise indeed, I'm very flattered Laughing

I know this is a old topic but when doing the fork swap how would you go about keeping the headlight and clocks as the cbr600 use a different mounting system to the Cb

Mine was the faired S model so I didn't have to worry about that problem.

I see due to having the bracket on the headstock tube 

So this is something I'm going have to look in to myself then

I've seen them before I knew I might need one but still got to solve the clock bracket out as there would be no mounting point for it on the yokes I would think

Just make some brackets to bolt to the underside of the top yoke.
Do you have any particular forks in mind?
I actually have my vfr750 ones with yokes available. As well as the front wheel.
