    You should probably replace the whole front end - forks, wheel, bar. The forks on your '98 won't have the proper mounting tabs for the disk brake from the '01. Anyone, correct me if I'm wrong.

    lizrdbrth mentioned this before









    "Disc brake conversion requires lower left fork leg ( fork tubes and right fork leg are all the same) front wheel with disc, master cylinder with hose, splicing of brake light switch wires (old style plug soldered to new style switch) and ideally the newer kill/starter switch. Your starter button will end up pointing downward with the old style."
