41 or 49 mm forks on a 93 FXR?

I’ve tried searching but haven’t found an answer. I’m new to FXRs and want to know if I find a 41 or 49 mm front end with narrow glide triple trees would it be a simple swap or are there other considerations? Or are there better ways to upgrade the front end of an old evo? Maybe Japanese take offs from some other bike? Thanks for any information.

A simple, relatively inexpensive way is to change to progressive rate fork springs. They make an amazing difference over the stock ones. After I switched to Progressive fork springs and Progressive 412 rear shocks my '92 FXRS with 39mm forks handled and rode like a different bike.
