*Sigh* Yes I own 3 ktm's. A 950adv, a 200exc and a 450smr. Get EXC forks, remove inner from outer tubes, unscrew damper for from base valve , get special tool to hold inner tube remove bottom of fork (where the axle goes). Pull 950 forks, remove inner tubes from outer tubes, remove damper rod, remove bottom of fork (where the axle goes). Reassemble 950 fork bottom onto exc legs. *Magic* you've got 300mm forks that use the 950 axle, wheels, spacers and brakes.

You're welcome.

As for the PDS sock I'm a little less sure about, you'd need to change the bottom shock mount for sure and the shock shaft. It looks like you'd need to reuse your upper shock body because of the res location... Or call ohlins and get one of their PDS shocks...
