I'm done the rest is up to you guy's
Nice Prutser! Thanks for sharing and for not making it all boring driveway photos. We need more action shots around here!
I was hoping to find more clean pictures of all the bikes but I couldn’t.
There should be an old thread with more action pictures.
Could make one think that DRZ forks are required to pass inspection in the Netherlands...
This one's been to Holland. Maybe some kind of infection?
I'm not sure what it is but something's itching.....
No shit-- i feel strangely inadequate now
I don’t think they’ve stuck one in an RS before...
I’ve been sizing things up............
The only thing I don’t have is s 21” front.
I decided to give my bike a project name:
@Kiwiabbo, are you using standard DRZ triple clamps?
If so, how did you get the top triple clamp to clear the dash panel inside the fairing? I have a '92 R100GS that I would like to fit with DRZ forks.
@brfoster he's using DR650 forks with drop in race tech emulators (I think). Not the same at all - skinnier fork stauntions, basic forks, lack any external adjustment. But look similar to the DRZ forks, & with the set up he has, & the way he uses it, he's indicated it provides a better than stock ride.
@Screaming Chicken has used his DRZ forks with the stock fairings. I think he's using Prutser triples.
@Box'a'bits, thanks very much. I will have to investigate further. I have a spare set of DRZ triples looking for a home.
I’m using modified Prutser triples.
The thing with the PD fairing is that support from the head tube to the roo bar slopes down and fouls on gullwing style lower triples. The DRZ650 ones seem to be straight.
The top DRZ400 triple with the “standard” thick washer mounting trick won’t work, you’d have to shorten the stem and maybe shave the dashboard lip a little.
Should be some pictures somewhere in the Unholy Union V thread...
Just like boxerbits said, I have them and I’m mainly road riding. A lot of improvement in th3 ride quality compared with stock. 160kph 2 up with gear still rock steady. Used to shake around at 140 by myself with gear. And yup DR650 forks with springs to suit, dropped internally by 2 inches and drop in cartridges. Rides sweet now. To make them fit under the dash I mowed a bit off the bottom of the stem to drop the top clamp down. About 10-15mm from memory.
