Anybody interested in a CR/F front end conversion for XR650R's

I swapped a CRF front end onto my XR650R using stock tripleclamps and I wasn't happy with how the whole thing went together, so I decided to design a set of custom tripleclamps to do it right. I contacted SCOTTS to get some dimensions from their steering stabilizers and the forward-mount stabilizer post, and ended up talking with them about the possibility of adding these tripleclamps to SCOTTS product line. Their biggest concern is that the XR650R's are being phased out and there might not be much demand for a product like this.

So, what do you guys think?

Here's a link to a thread I started on ThumperTalk about all this and there's a lot of discussion about geometry and trade-offs, etc.
