Almost all of the Honda sportbikes use the same steering head bearings. The key is finding one that the steering stops work with. A 929/954 front end will physically fit on the bike, but the 929/954 forks might be too short. After a swap, you will either need to get a wheel for the type of front end, or if you get lucky you can just shim the wheel you have to align it.

pretty much anything beyond stock will require upper and lower triples I believe. The Ohlins are the sh*t, but high dollar, then you've gotta get the custom triple. Are yours bent? If not just have Patrick revalve them and you'll feel 100% better. The Ohlins are overrated unless you are getting close to track record/expert pace, a tragic waste to ride them on the street..........

Pretty much any honda sportbike front end will fit, but double check by bearing size. RC51 SP1's triples will not work, but forks area standard 50mm. SP2 thriples will work. 1998-up VFR and Blackbirds have a linked braking system and wouldn't be a good choice as they have a different lower fork on the left side.

Also, make sure you use the same upper and lower or check the offset first. Otherwise the forks will not line up.

You also might want to look for triples that have an offset close to what came on the bike orginally. If it is only going to be used for slow speed stunting, it probably won't affect you much.
