    Front brake help

    Ok it does work BUT when I pull lever in it goes fine the seems to bind or stick then it seems to get past it with more pressure the front will dive under hard braking. What should I look for? A piston maybe sticking in the caliper or maybe something in the MC ? Any help would be appreciated ?

    Front swap

    Has anyone swapped out the front forks and used the ohlins from a Ducati? Curious if I had a set of trees made for it if there would be any issues. Length, spring rate because of the bikes weight difference. Love the look of an inverted front end and the gold look from Ducati
