This is a very tricky mod.
I even thought of doing it myself, a couple months ago a guy was selling the whole front end of a 4th gen, and i mean whole... forks, trees, axle, mc, brake caliper, lines.. the whole deal... Im glad the 6r worked too.

Now i think depending how much you will spend on forks/trees/axle you might be better off buying some cartridges for the stock forks, which are better than the bpf.

(not trying to say anything bad about the bpf, i really like those forks and i think it is a pretty cool mod)
I don't disagree that you need a degree of experience and ability to tackle this mod but I personally found found it quite straight forward.

I also have no experience with the cartridge mod and do not doubt how effective they are, but the whole fork mod cost about $550.00. This includes forks, trees, bars, and axle. Also got a set of Nissin calipers and a MC that I did not need and will probably sell. (All told I am pleased with the initial performance. Keep in mind that it is a little cold up here now with snow on the way. I will do more fine tuning in the Spring.)

Oh 550 is not bad at all for all that.
And you can probably make some 200 bucks back, at least.

The one i saw the guy wanted 1100...

Yo! I know I love my gen 2, but you guys are making me consider divorcing my wife. I love the love you all gave the Gen 2. I'll have some pics coming soon. But I've got some work to do first.

I was gonna have new pics with the new front brake setup but found I needed wheel bearings. So then I pulled rear wheel and sure enough, the seals on rear wheel are shot too! Gotta wait til after new year to buy some good bearings. I removed the new rotors I had JUST mounted after seeing the bad seals. Figures, right?
