My trail reply comes from dirt bike fork uses the axle infront of the tubes and the versey under the fork tubes. So if you use the stock versy clamps you end up with more offset around a inch more. That decreases trail alot. If use use the clamps that came with the drz it has less offset on the trees. They do less offset In the tripple to balance out the off set fork. Hope this is writen in a understandable way. I have been facing the Same challenge with a protect. My intened forks have .25" less offset and will give me almost 1/2" more trail. Which in my case is too much and will make the bike slow handling. Your could end up the other direction and not be stable on gravel at speed.
Hope not but somthing to look at.
