Yamaha XT660Z YZ forks

Hi, my project is almost done:

Mods:
Forks + triple clamp YZ 450
Springs - stiffer from Ohlins '52, it's ok but now the rear is to soft.
Front wheel - YZ Excel 1.60
Front tire - Metzeler Karoo T
Handle bar- Renhtal
Guard - acerbis, made from two models.
Mudguard - Polisport
Crash bars small - Touratech
Shift gear - Touratech
Footrests - china - very good for the money - 15 euro
Sump guard - handmade.
Toolbox, from the old model, perfect o put 2 tire levers, 22 key and few more.
Seat - handmade.
Rotor - wave 320мм / 5мм + adapter - work perfect, almost as the stock.
Steering lock - handmade
Now only the shock is must.

Now after more than 10,000km, 70% on the road 30% off road I can tell you that it is completely new bike. Easy to handle on and off road, I bit heavy for technical sections but we know that. No more diving when you braking. The forks are maybe to stiff but I like it. I came from Husqvarna TE 510 and the only difference for me is the weight. Anything else, power, suspension, brakes is the same.

Conversion to a USD fork is really nice on the XT660Z! Nice work!
I would really like to do the same with the front fork.
Any idea about the total cost for the conversion?

I see you have a single can exhaust, planning on putting an 18" rim on the rear wheel?
