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.

im going to use the forks and wheel and brake system from the 2001 just looking if anybody mated the right hand switch from the 2001 to a early style switch (1998)

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."
