Digging in my scrap steel bucket I find an 11/16" OD tube that fits PERFECTLY inside the axle. Now, to just figure out how to put some bushings on it and adapt it.
Hey DakarNick,
I simply buy the standard KTM nuts and machine the end off in a lathe. You could just sand the capped end off of yours.

Looks great!
