Vision R40 LWB Conversion Kit
I know they made them. Don't suppose anyone has one laying around that they aren't using?
Try these guys. Even if they do not have it on their online catalog they may still be able to help.
I have this kit
Did you ever find your LWB conversin kit? I actually purchased the LWB kit when I bought my R40 new in 2003 (or thereabouts -- it's the blue R40, the second to last year they made it). I have the (blue) boom, steering linkage, stem, bar, riser, maybe even the cable guides custom cut to the riser. I bought my bike in the USS/SWB configuration, and have always preferred that.
I have never installed any of these parts, except to take pictures when my wife sold her R40. I have not tried to sell it and haven't really researched the value, but you are welcome to PM me with an offer.

Along these lines, I have a Vision R40 that is long wheelbase right now. I tried to convert it "back" to a short wheelbase, but encountered a problem. Now when I turn the handlebar to the right, the front brakes squeeze down. Also, when I turn to the left, the brakes are too loose to actually clamp down. I read somewhere that I had to lengthen the cable, but I don't see how that would help. Have any of you encountered this issue or know anything about it?
