Default Front Forks

I would like to either get longer forks or get a more slight rake on my 73 CB500. I've heard that YZ250 forks fit my bike. If anybody has any information on this subject that would help me I would greatly appreciated it, Thanks Or if there are seal covers for front forks so I can get rid of the rubber boots

Gee Andrew, why do you want to do that? That's an awesome handling bike (for it's day) just the way it is. I rode one for a year back when they were new, it was fast, smooth, reliable as a brick.

If the front end seems too low, it may just need new springs or a fork rebuild. The rubber boots are a neat feature; I'd leave them right where they are.

Here's a better idea for a custom CB500:

That giant wheel/skinny tire look is all the rage now. There were dozens of bikes that this one at Bike Week.
