Thanks. I get better...

I have my jargon wrong it seems. Wondering if I can take tubes and internals out of the lower forks of a KLR and put them in the lower Ninja forks. Would like to retain my Ninja front wheel and dual calipers (and doing the Versys front end swap is $$!). Looking a pics, it looks like the lowers on my Ninja are shorter than the lowers on the KLR. I don't have a set of KLR forks to measure or try this out.

Thanks for the swift response!

EDIT: looking at more pics on the computer today. Looks like the KLR fork lowers are longer than the Ninja lowers, which rather defeats much of the purpose of the swap. Just trying to keep those brakes.

Tony, I might PM you with some specific questions in a few months if that's alright.
