the DRZ uses about 235mm of space in the clamps and 15mm to the bottom of the fender mount. gull wing yes, but the difference doesn't look like much.
the Versys clamps are about 240mm with no fender mount at present. by the time the mount is in place, the overall dimensions will be almost identical.
so the DRZ clamp is really only worth about 5mm, less than a 1/4", with fork interference being the bottom clamp, if there's that much travel.
