    I've never done it to a Del Mar, but I've switched forks on bikes any number of times and I can't see why it shouldn't be do-able on your bike.

    You only need to make sure that the part of the forks that goes inside the head-set (am I using the right terminology here?) are the same length. Or very close.

    it should be an easy swap...I put a springer on my Jag
    just to be sure, you could measure the head-tube (where the forks go thru frame), and ask if it will fit that
