upgrade forks on 78 750E

Hello! I'm looking to swap in forks from a newer GSXR 1000 or similar onto my 78 GS750E. Wondering about axle size and brake alignment. Donor from ebay would ideally be 2012-2016 R1000 w Brembos. Want to keep 78 rims. Is this do-able with minor fabbing? Any wizardly advice is appreciated! Thanks, Tim

I think itís do able. The only difficulty, I would think, would be the triple trees. Iím not sure of the diameter difference between the two, But as long as theyíre close it can be done without much fab.
If theyíre different you may have to get some triple trees fabbed from a machine shop.
Do some searching with what forks you want to use. Iíve seen it done with Ducati forks a lot.
