1973 CB500K2 Forks on a CB750? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

Just as the subject says:

Will a set of forks from a 1973 CB500K2 fit, which I think will.

More importantly are they strong enough?

They appear to be. Has anyone experienced this setup yet?

Thanks for all replies.

Yes, the forks will fit the trees and the wheel, assuming it's the k5 cb750 in your sig you are talking about.

It will lower the front end.

The lowering is what I'm going after.....................Thanks.

I was concerned of the strength of them. I know of swapping 550 onto them, and when I bought these I thought I was getting 550 forks as they were advertized.

They appear to be standard forks from the outside, but the innards show them as 500 forks. When I looked at that parts schematic.

Thanks for the input. Guess it's time to fill 'em with fluid and see how they feel installed.
