once again, an alert rider steps up. i forgot about those, but knowing how the bike will get ridden off the pavement, i still make the strong recommendation for a conventional cush hub. applying the WFO HP to the rear wheel is just too common on those roads, especially since you have enough HP/torque to lighten the front end and skip across potholes and washboard.

whoa there son, stop right there, i don't want any women in my shop that are big enough to compress a 16kg shock spring just from sitting on the bike.

it was that factor, plus his use of 40 zip ties. if i remember right, nobody got killed.

Mario fabbed the wheel adapters and fender brackets for this clean stock suspended Versys. i'm not sure which hubs where used for this 17/19 setup, could be KTM. many of the KTM hubs use 20mm bearings, ideal for the 20mm Versys axels.

Mario, direct view photos from your photobucket. from the lower right under "links", select "IMG code", then paste into your ADV post. use "preview post" to make sure it's what you want.

takes some talent and the right equipment to safely machine the .5mm shim. $100USD is indeed a good price for two complete sets of these custom parts.



good job on the custom axle (top).

i'd like to see seperate prices for the DRZ400 forks to Versys clamps sleeves/shims, the DRZ front hub adapters/axle, and a set of adapters for a cush hub rear wheel with 20mm axle like the DR650.

i wore out the TKC i brought back from the Yukon, so i dusted off the Kenda Big Block i ran for awhile last year and remounted that tire. the Big Block looked like it had some promise as a blocky tread DS tire when it was introduced, but the tire just will not get the miles that you can with the TKC, at least 1500 less for the rear on the V649. the tire is a decent performer, and has about the stiffest tire casing of any bike tire i've encountered, they just wear quickly.
