I have never wanted for better brakes nor have I ever heat-faded the brakes... but I have EBC Pro-Lite rotors w/HH pads on both ends... and Z-rated radial tires too.

You would especially appreciate pretty brakes in that case. Brembo have nice new pink discs that are a nice match for a pink helmet.

The problem lies then in where to bolt the second caliper to as theres no lugs on the other lower fork leg so youve gotta weld some on in the right place and strip the forks right down after marking where youre gonna weld or the heat generated will probably mess up your fork internals.
The other way to go is bolt an entire Hammer S fork assembly including triple trees to your judge.
With the price of Vic parts you may be better off moneywise to graft on an entire Jap superbike front end off a GSXR1000 or similar...I've seen similar setups on hotrodded Harleys before.
Any other ideas I'd love to hear as really our single disc fronts are barely adequate at speed.
Upgrade to Lyndals performance pads is the cheapest way to get better front braking.
So I have toyed with the idea of the Kingpin front forks similar to what you did, but then I was just thinking, I'm not sure how the leg lengths compare, but if it would work, could a set of Cross bike trees and legs be put on a Highball?

There would be a few perks, I'm thinking it would be slightly taller (which would help since I'm overheight on my rear suspension), it would take the bike to inverted forks, and then potentially use a cross bike wheel, with dual rotors, and the opportunity to run a 160 front like I have on my CrossRoads.

Your thoughts please?

Interesting, we need to talk some more. I have a Cross Roads with the 160 front Perelli Angel GT on the front of it. I'd love to have the big front on the Highball too.

Just a matter of getting the right size steering head bearings Id think, inner dimension to suit the headstem of the triple clamps and outer to suit the frame diameter.
I wouldnt be surprised if it was a bolt up operation.
Had an XS1100 front firk assembly on an old K2 CB750/4 HONDA with twin discs, gave me slightly extended forks as a bonus.

What is the stock tire size on a high ball ?

I just changed the tripple trees and USD forks ...

Yes i think cross bikes and hammers have the same space between the forks .... Seems there are only 2 different size tripple trees
