i wouldn't buy springs or valves until you've exhausted the many adjustment combinations, and also switched to synthetic fork oil, maybe in a different weight. it also depends on your personal preferences. for example, i don't care for a soft setup on the roads i frequently travel, while the next rider would say that soft is exactly what he's looking for.

similar weight bike, i didn't change the internals on the DRZ forks at all. as far as i know, they're OEM stock.

So are these going to customizable triple clamps? I am looking to change out the forks on my WRR with some WR450f forks so I would have those just sitting around. They are KYB 46mm inverted forks, what are you thoughts on something like that?

It was neat to see your name in print again Craig.
Motorcyclist Magazine, Jan 2014 issue.
The article "Ready to Rally" about the KTM rally ride.
11 days and 5,000 miles.
What a trip!

It is great that you are giving attention to the cheap seat guys riding 'Strom's.
We are looking forward to more info about your kits & products to make our bikes more adventurous.

It's funny.. I've been planning this whole winter on trying to get my DRZ400 front end on my vstrom.. and I stumble across this thread.

I think it looks and performs great! And it's exactly the path I want to travel with my own vstrom..

I'm hoping you come out with a kit soon! I'll be a customer if the price is right!

thanks for the input guys.

A custom seat is being made for this in the next few weeks that will flatten out the dished profile. Once that comes back we will be looking at other suspension height options as it will get lowered a little bit for the owner.

The Skidplate and Center stand package will be completed once suspension work is done.

We are still moving forward, now that the winter thaw has started to unfreeze our brain cells.

I'm curious about more weight reduction on this, and getting a 31"+/- seat height, even at a travel loss?

The current bike is getting a custom seat built to get rid of the dish, as this will raise the seat hight even more, a suspension mod will be done to lower the bike a bit for the rider.

I'll get more pics up as soon as I can. Shop is booked solid for 1190 R&D that needs to be done by mid May, then the 650R work can start as I plan to test the new Skidplate/ centerstand combo on our Memorial Day test ride.
