New to the forum but not to Buells !

Found a clean set of X1 forks and triple, wondered if anyone has swapped them onto an M2. If so, any problems and how does the Cyclone "like" them ?

Did it to my my years ago. Was basically a straight swap. As far as looks, I liked it cause I think the
X1 front fender looks so much better. When I did the swap, I also made the change to clip on bars.

You will need to enlarge the upper and lower trees like on this set, about .188 If you look at the amount of meat that is left it is so so thin but I have done it 4 times and it has never broken. Takes a good Mill.

I have the X1 forks with the X1 triples, so I planned to just swap the whole assembly ( with new bearings ).
