    Hey Oof

    My 2003 highland started as a super motard with the big 6 piston billet front caliper. I sent the wheels to talon in the u.k. and they laced up 21" and 18" rims to my old hubs , they fitted but i had to shim the front caliper as it was hitting the spokes, i used 2 plain washers which wasnt that hard ! and looks just like an outback.
    The suspension travel between the 2 models im not sure on but it works fine on my bike, any longer travel and you couldnt get on as it pretty high - im 6'.

    One thing though i went for mx style width on the rims and although these are best for the dirt im now going to send them back and get the same width rims as ktm 990 adventure as i think itll suit it better for touring about.( and lots easier to fit the tyre)

    I have been waiting years for this and it seems as if it will be more years before it is available, if ever.

    Thanks for the response. It keeps my hopes up, sort of. Wish John would post something.

    Silly answer: Buy an engine or two or...

    More seriously, this thing needs a chassis to mate with the engine. Since the counter-sprocket exits out the right of the engine, it will likely complicate re-using existing frames. It would be cool if they would ship a "crate frame" along with that crate motor.
