Has anyone put the front end from a VT700C on a CX650 Custom? It looks like it will fit okay and give you dual disc brake on the front. I'm wondering if there are any modifications that need done. Also curious if the front wheel looks out of place as it will be different from the rear.

Have you compared the GL650 front end? Unless I'm mistaken, it shares the wheel style of the CX650. The fork diameters are the same, but I'm not sure about the lengths.

Ahh... Thanks for clarifying. I had thought only the turbos were 39mm.

I'm wondering if the wheel from the gl650 would work with the front end of the vt700c. The VT forks are only about a half inch shorter but same diameter. Same disc brakes and same wheel bearings and spacer. This one will take a little research. Thanks for the help guys!

If the bearings and spacer are the same, you've got a good chance.
