I have been meaning to upgrade the front end of my Vmax for several years but have been bogged down with other projects. I had originally planned to go with an R1 or a Hayabusa USD conversion but I really like the look of the massive 52mm standard gen 2 forks. Has anyone done this before? It seems the gen 2 is raked a bit more than gen 1 - it also seems the forks are longer...but I don't have access to a gen 2 to take measurements. At 52mm they should be just as ridgid as USDs - and I think they just fit the style of the gen 1 much better than USDs. From a steering geometry/handling standpoint; would they offer any significant improvement over properly set up stock 43mm's or should I just stick with the tried and true USDs? I guess I should also mention that since this thought entered my mind I have been scouring the interwebs for a set of gen 2 forks and have seen none. Thoughts?
