I am looking to give my F more of a chopper look. I found a site that makes a full kit with triple trees, for tubes and all but the F is an inverted fork. So with this I need to to see about ether paying for all new parts or find somone with another V-Rod that the parts can swap with and do a front end swap with them then get my chopper look done.

So dose any one know if the V-Rod Muscle (F) 2009 can do a swap with any other V-Rods out there? I dont care about, on my side, the rake or anything just can it be done.

Others with more expertise will chime in, I'm sure, but I think that the trees on all V-rods swap EXCEPT the R models. If you go this way, I would be interested in your take off parts, as I am looking to go with inverted forks on my 05 A.

Well if it swaps well then I would be willing to do a full swap with somone thay get my forks, breaks and trip trees oh and fender and i take theres. Head light as well if that will not swap. I already have a new front rim and want to keep my bars, speedo, and custom grips. Would be great if somone in the AZ area is willing to test this out with me.

To the best of my knowledge the bars are not a direct swap but the rest of the frontend is. I don't think the Muscle bars will fit the standard triple tree and vice versa I don't think A model bars or the B/D/DX risers will bolt on to the Mucle triple tree. Also there is no need to swap brakes because they are the same from '06 and up (Brembo's).

i saw a dx with a f front just this weekend ,he said brakes and all stayed the same ,and it was a direct swap i think ,bryan is correct, the bars are different ,which suited this guy cos he had his cluster in a je box and different bars anyway , was a nice looking unit

The F has a different steering stem, no star nut and a completely different top nut. The top nut preloads the head bearings on an F, and the top clamp clamps to the stem, completely different set up than earlier V-Rods and more like that of a Sportster or Superglide. Not sure if the F and A fork locks line up.
