    Interesting stuff at Old Skool Suzuki as well.

    When consulting the magic 8 ball for advice, one must first ask it "will your answers be accurate?"

    4?...doing two bikes?...or do you have a lot of accessories to control?
    I bought two 3 way switches....will wind up having LH controls as {two rearward} horn and LH turn, with the forward switch as headlight hi/low - and - RH controls as {two rearward} RH turn and start. with the forward switch as stop......that's the plan at least.
    I'd wish one more for "flash to pass"...if I reread the M-unit manual I might not have to do that....idk.
    I'm thinking of hitting up the local trophy shop to see if they could engrave the buttons in the icons I'd want..........just because it would look cool.

These are 41mm and great for swaps using GS wheels if you want to be able to use the brakes made for those forks as well - they are a single sided twin piston caliper that clears wider mag and spoke wheels well. I have a thread on here somewhere exploring what triple clamp sets looked to be good candidates to clamp these. The very heavy GS1100GK triples are direct swap. Axle adapters and rotor spacers would be all that's needed in the custom depth with GS wheels. Adjustable rebound on fork caps

    CBR600F4 (&fuel injected F4i) are 43mm and fully adjustable damping.


    RF900R are shorter versions of the awesome Bandit 1200 forks. 97 (&96?) Had adjustable rebound. These are pretty short. Bandit forks are GS750-1000 height, & both Bandit 1200 & RF900R forks look darn near identical to GS forks externally. CBR forks have different style caliper mounts that make them appear to be modern. The modern RF / Bandit GSF1200 forks look very similar to GS forks but run 310mm rotors (98-99 CBR900RR are 310mm rotors and same bolt pattern as GS hubs!)

    Yamaha R6 right side up forks are the absolute lightest conventional cartridge forks I've checked out, stanchions are thin though (I've seen a crashed set, ouch). 320mm rotors. A Ducati model has 6 bolt 320mm rotors per EBC catalog specs that could be adaptable to 6 bolt GS hubs and run with the R6 forks.
    Honda Superhawk VT1000 forks are also a good swap, but you want to ditch the calipers for identical looking CBR600F4 calipers which have bigger pistons. 41mm and fit very nicely in Honda PC800 triples but the step down upper triple will have stanchions standing proud above the triple at proper ride height unless you shave the bar mounts and run clipons.

    *steering stops generally all will need reworked on any fork swap I list, fyi. Except RF900R OR 89 GSXR1100K forks in V-Max 1200 triples on a Rickman race frame, dead on exact fit! Lucky me

    Any of these forks will still need racetech or sonic springs, they are all off of lighter bikes that a 750/850/1000/1100cc GS four.
    I've got sonic 1.0 springs and salty monk brake upgrade that were supposed to go to the 850G...guess they can be re-purposed either way.
    Thanks for the write up...excellent info and very thorough....Thank you!

    yes two bikes, my buddy will use the v2 on his bike and i will use the v3.

    Have been checking out the M-unit stuff for hours now man what an options.

    I'm trying to figure out a way to have a "flash to pass" too.

    Engraving sounds COOL !

    i like the idea of the Compu-Fire output fuse on the solenoid,
    and the socket they added.
    Makes the overall look cleaner.
    Good warnings about small batteries too.

    Yes, if a cycle has kick start then you can have a small battery....both of mine don't, so I have to tote a large battery, like it or not.
    Kick start and good tune is the kinder way to go....some few folks can actually bump start a smaller cycle to lessen needed things...
