    I'm looking to put a YZ450 front end (fork, triple, wheel, brake) on a CB500x. It's been done before but with a 2004.

    My questions is .... the 2003 to 2009 model yz450 have the same steeing tube measurements ... but do they also match up with the 2010 and newer?

    What about brake caliper? Would the 2003 to 2009 match 2010 and newer?

    I'm trying to figger out what years of used forks and triple clamps I can buy!
