Hi all, In case this is going to be useful for anybody I wanted to post my fairly low cost solution to replacing the steering stops on a GSXR 750, 2007 front end swap on a 1979 CB750 DOHC.

Having already bought and fitted the Cognito Moto stem the main problem was that the CB and GSXR steering stops are not compatible.

My solution was to simply buy the adjustable steering stops from Cognito for
$40 or £100 shipped to the UK. Part link below:

Then it’s a simple job of cutting and grinding the tabs on the GSXR lower triple tree and then drilling through from underneath where there is already a partially threaded hole. I then just tapped the hole with a M6, 1mm pitch and it works a treat.

A few photos to show the finished work.
