Re: decided to bite the front end bullet
Just to be on the safe side depending on the different tapers at the top of the fork, you should probably get the yokes as well.
Actually, you're going to need the COMPLETE front end regardless (forks, triples, wheel/rotors, brake calipers, MC etc etc). Might as well just find it all as one set on eBay or something.
There's nothing particularly special about the BPF font end. The insides are a little more tricky to work on, and most serious tuners gut them in favor of standard cartridge inserts. So I would probably go for a earlier model front end personally.
