    Looks like you'll have a fun time getting it sorted. Do you normally ride this time of year, or wait until warmer times?

    I have to produce my own special tool (dopra-tool) for front EXC forks :rofl

    Picked up your build thread from the BIG DR650 thread.
    Nice job on the rebuild. Man ... your DR has seen some HARD use. Hope you can get it all sorted. The KTM forks are nice ... but aren't they TOO long for the DR650?

    Good luck with everything!

    No, it is only 3-4 cm higher like original DR 650SE, but I would like 8 cm higher motorcycle.

    What did you do for the steering head bearings? When I did mine, the Suzi cups were a close match for the KTM races, but after 100 kms they were notched and stuffed, so not close enough. I now have a complete Suzuki bearing on the bottom and complete KTM bearing up top after sleeving the shaft for the bottom and head tube for the top.
