    hi, i got my dakar down to about 350lbs with no fuel. since i have put some weight back on with some gaurds and a rear rack. the forks i have are 2000 yz426 forks and wheel. the wheel i relaced a 18x2.15 for cheap tires and to get the thing lower to the ground.as far as i know the forks are stock. they work perfect for me though since i like plush suspension. i even have the compression and rebound backed off them so i can float down the rough trails in comfort lol!

    Nice mods Kubiak!:clap

    I'm looking for some idea's for my winter project.
    Building an yz front end in mine bmw f650gs dakar.
    I see you cut off some of the sides to see the front forks.
    Can you post some detail pics of both sides?
    I'm aiming for a supermoto look in the end.. And with most supermoto you see the front forks.

    Thanks in advance
