planning a F4i fork swap.
I am picking up a set of '02 f4i forks to swap onto my '02 919. I have searched around and found lots of great info about using F4i forks on the 919 and the only real downside I see is that you can't reuse the 919's front fender.
I plan on breaking the forks down and swapping new oil and springs. Since I will have the forks broken down I want to mod the f4i forks to accept the 919 front fender. I have 2 different options in mind.....
- switch the F4i fork bottoms for a set of '06 919 fork bottoms. Not sure if they are a direct swap or not? I have a full set '06 forks with bent tubes to salvage any pieces off of that might be required.
- have the tabs welded on to the F4i forks to accept the 919 fender.
I am hoping option #1 will work. Since I have the tools and parts on hand already.
Any input or advice is appreciated.
