CBR929 fork upgrade...anyone done it?

The guy selling on Ebay had someone else do the modifications so he wasn't
much help.
Anyone here made this upgrade?
I figure I would need to invest in forks, wheels, calipers and maybe some
bodywork for the front fender. About 350 to 500 depending on how cheaply I
can acquire the parts.
My only real concern is dealing with the steering head and bearings. Would
it be necessary to do any modification to the stem, or frame itself?
Anyone know for sure what is involved?

Jim,

If no one here has the setup, you might ask the seller of this nicely

I was real interested in this bike and talked with him at great length about
the bike and the front end. I bid but didn't get it. I don't think he
would mind you asking him some more ??? His name is Sean.

929 FORK SWAP

progress of my 929 to VTR fork swap...
Well, things have been going pretty smoothly, all be it a bit more expensive
then I would have liked. I was hoping to retain my VTR front wheel.
Unfortunately the 929 has a larger diameter axel, and the 929 rotors will
not bolt up to my VTR front wheel. So, in order to do this, here's what
you'll need.

1)929 forks
2)929 triple trees (upper and lower) with stem
3)929 front wheel
4)929 rotors
5)929 axel and wheel spacers
6)929/aftermarket clipons
7)929/aftermarket fender

If I had known that I was going to need all this ****, I would have just
picked up some 900RR forks and I'd have a working setup already. But oh
well. On a good note, the 929 forks are noticeably lighter then my VTR
forks. I was a little shocked, but the male VTR sliders are fairly thick, to
make up for there smaller overall diameter. And the 929 front wheel is
definitely lighter then the VTR front wheels. Just look at 'em, and it's
pretty easy to see. Aside from needing basically a complete 929 front end to
do the swap, the only other issue is the steering stops. You could get away
with leaving them alone, but eventually you'll end up wearing a hole in your
radiator hose (not so good). I'm going to drill/tap a hole into the lower
triple trees' steering stops, and then put a couple of screws in 'em. So
that should solve that problem. Other then that, I was pleased to see that
there were no other clearance problems with the tank, gauges, or fairing.
