vtr 250 forks

Are these the forks that everyone is raving about? i hear that these are good for replacing the stock forks on a cb350. I have a cb360 that i maybe considering this swap on. Is this a practical idea? this bike will not be my daily driver. I just want something to zip around with on occasion. But i am stripping this thing down and powder coating the frame and polishing the engine and detailing most everything in between this winter. I found a vtr 250 based forum and i think there are some forks on there for sale. Any suggestions?

actually, if you thnk about it, you dont need to reweld the stem. theres really no way for it to come out. but im not a honda engineer, so if they did it, id do it. if the stem is too long, which is usually the problem, you can shim the bottom bearing with a washer. the problem is, you dont know til you fit it up. then the bearings on and its a pain in the as to get off. i s'pose you could try with the ball bearings, but that seems like a pain in the ass.
