NagChampa said:USD forks provide the best available braking upgrade
rzresurection said:How so? In terms of modern calipers? All you need are modern calipers and some new 'adapter plates'. The plates may be a PITA if you have to relocate the calipers in 3 dimensions - that will require a machinists time.
This may save you the aggravation of worrying about new offsets and how to graft a new front end onto your bike.
You must also consider getting the front end resprung to match the weight of your bike.
If you're not looking for the suspension upgrade, but want better braking, just go with some multi-pot calipers and plates.

My response was simply to do a stem swap...
Can anyone help me with some info on the best way to go about this?

I've had a little change of heart, instead of putting the complete front end off the ducati on the gt550 i would simply just use the parts i need such as the forks and calipers. i'm planning on getting a similar yoke and tree which fits both the kawasaki and the forks etc. what do you think?
