    Hello fellow crazy ktm owners :)
    I want to swap the forks on my standard 2005 with a 2003 S. All is prepared for the swap on my side and wait for the other guy to take down the parts. But I have a question. Do I need to swap the brake line? Isn't mine long enough for the S forks? Thank you

    I did not but I swapped an 04 S with an 06 S (and later put a 990 R brake line)
    You can do a test... remove your calipers (both) and put the left one 3 or 4 cm lower, attach it momenatary and check

    The fork is packed ready for shipping, so can do. And the bike is not at home. Thank you anyway

    The KTM fiche shows that both of those bike use the exact same brake line.
