Hello all, brand spanking new Guzzi rider here. I know very little about these bikes, and this is most modern machine I've ever owned. I posted this on the Guzzi Tech forum as well... I purchased a used 2001 v11 sport, loving it very much, already pondering some upgrades. I was wondering if it would be relatively easy, or even possible, to swap the front end off my bike and replace it with that of a 2008 (or later) Griso 8v. Mainly for the benefit of having radial mounted calipers. Has anyone ever done this? I'm not familiar with all the specs, but is there any reason to think that it wouldn't work? Or that it wouldn't be a good idea? The accompanying question is, where would I get a good used front end? There are lots of options on ebay for other bikes. (I'm currently watching some auctions for GSXR front ends for another project.) But used Guzzi parts are virtually non existent there, understandably so given how much smaller the "user base" is. This also begs the question: does anyone have any experience installing the front end of a modern Japanese bike onto the v11sport? Which models offer the easiest swap? Any suggestions or insights would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
