Thanks for the measurements JD. That might work with the DRZ forks with some sort of spacers, but I'll have to look into it more. I'm guessing they need to be the same diameter for those forks.
By the way, I was reading that KTM shoehorn thread with interest as well. I meant to post this link here for you guys as well. All kinds of downloads including the service and parts manuals for the 650r, free, here
Tony, nice XRR!
