Thanks,

Was the Dakar conversion on the F650GS single or the G?

I just talked to Touratech US who sells a set of Excel rims for the G650GS and F650 single with a 21" front and they said that the lower part of the forks are the same on the G650GS and the Sertao... only the upper part and the springs are longer so I would only need the spacer on the fork brace...

You'll also need a spacer on the fork brace to lift it a bit depending on your tire choice.

I just did a Dakar conversion on my GF's bike but changed out forks/shock/front tire
