Front end switch

I Have planned on getting a Sv650s. But I want to eventuallyl customize it and make it shine. I want to start with taking the the front end of a donor R1 and possibly doing a single sided swing arm. How much do you think the front end swap would cost?

Beer, of course, is actually a depressant. But poor people will never stop hoping otherwise.

Thanks Vash. I"ve read about GSX coonversion so I know its possible. I have seen a hyabusa with a R1 fairings so I hope its possible with the Sv

I'm sorry I misunderstood. When you said front end, I thought you mean forks, brakes, tripple tree and wheels. It seems that you actually meant the front fairing. If thats the case, with enough fiberglass you can attach a fiero nose to a bike.

yeah, you can put gixxer 04/05 forks on sv650's. My friend wanted to buy the forks I have till I slapped him silly. No one touching my shrine.

My goal is to beef up the Sv like a streetfighter but make her outward appearance like the hottest streetbike I know, the R1. But seriously anymore parts that I can salvage from other bikes?
