When I put in an order to Motorworks I'll stick an Avon Roadrider front on the list, then pull the front wheel off the dormant K, drop it off for fitting/balancing and then swap it into the K fronted DMW boxer, not least because it'll have another pair of disks on it. The current ones are slightly warped so as you can feel a sort of judder when you grab the front anchors. It got an advisory on it at the last MOT.
I've not spoken to him as I'm out of phone credit & the bike's off the road, so I'm not sure quite how comprehensively his gearbox is lunched, or why it's happened, but the warranty ran out on that bike years ago
On the other hand I might ask him how much he wants for it
