I have a 1982 920 virago and would like to chang out my 920 triple tree to a 750 to get away form the square handlebars and also change the square head light to round. Does anyone know it this will work?

I had two 920 Viragos but, I don't remember if the fork tubes are bigger on the 920 than the 750.
If the fork tube diameter is the same, you should have no problems at all doing the swap. _________________ Ray #1

I worked on a few viragos with those pain in the butt square handles bars I was curious myself heres is what i found the bearing and races are all the same parts number so that leaves you with possibly a few options
A) could switch complete triple trees with forks from a 750 but would also have to include the round headlight (do to headlight mounting bracket)
B) from what I saw if you just want to change handle bars the adapter that holds the bars to the triple trees is bolt on therefore may allow you to just unbolt it and bolt on a different set of handle bar stays/mounts from the 750 (of course you are gonna have to take some measurements on length and bolt hole size .
Maybe somebody on here has a set of 750 trees that you could test fit or atleast can get you some measurements
I think its possible but again you will never know till you try it Sounds like a nice little winter project and i think it would be better looking and of course it would be a 1 off making it your custom touch .
Good Luck and keep us posted !
