ZX12 B model 26mm offset yokes

Anyone with a B model 12 that's looking to improve handling and looks?
I have a brand new set of billet yokes, 26 mm offset that were made for a B model.
I bought a used set of standard yokes from a parts breaker in the UK that swore they were
for an A model. I had them sent to ProMach and he made a beautiful set for me, but since they are for a B model I cannot use them.

900 USD and I pay the freight.

Makes the bike more planted in corners, by moving center of pressure on tire closer to engine. Less tendency to push the front and tracks better.

Different steering head and stem. The B model uses the same size bearing on top as bottom.

Same bearing just the 10R. 14 etc..... Can't you just get a new stem and call it good? or remachine the stem you have? Won't all the rest be the same?

Probly what I'll do unless someone wants to buy them. Not only the stem but the top yoke wil lneed to be sleeved, as the A uses a 22 mm thread and shank at top vs 25 for the B

Can't the stem you have be modified? Seems very possible to me with my many years working as a machinist and CNC programmer.. I need a special set made as well, I want the offset to be adjustable like the yokes made by Attack Performance..
