Can any of these forks be used and still have full steering lock? Without the $800 triple trees?
These forks can quite easily be installed with the stock triples. Unfortunately the turning radius is sub-par at full steering lock, which is the reason for modified triples. If I were only to ride on the street and limited gravel roads I'd consider running stock DRZ triples. On dirt no way.
If you’re willing to take a file to the drz triples they can be improved a bit but I don’t think they’ll get close to the lock of the original fork. The prutser triples will do as much if not slightly more lock than stock if your tank allows it.
Rode with this one this week. Very clean and well put together ST with the drz forks. Great bike and even better guy.
Ah, Nathan's G/S sticks out like a sore thumb in all pics of it! How was Big Dog??
Can we print stickers of this??
(soon to be featured everywhere on your local planet)
It was good. A lot tamer than normal. The big passes were all closed still had snow, but still a great time with friends. Nathan need a new rear rack after the event, as the beating got to his.
Wonder if it’s because that was the last one??
That’s probably some of it, the weather really just wasn’t cooperating. Rained all day before so some of the harder passes were closed and others just slimly. Several of the old “A” group weren’t there. I just wanted to make the last run with the guys. There was one tricked out airhead there. It was built with suspension from Bas and had an aluminum TAG swing arm plus other goodies. It was mouth watering. We also got into a discussion on a certain persons heads that dropped a valve. Really was a good event.
my head drops often....ala Charilie Brown.
First a nice selfie of me in Morocco on a cookie break:
And then riding the dunes of Merzouga:
Well, guess I forgot to post a picture
The few pictures I have from rides so far are all a bit blurry. I'll post some ride photos when I get some better ones.
How can you miss this thread as Dutch DRZ Airhead

Still a work in progress with lots to do:
Another one from the netherlands!
BH's bike looks great and it will get where it needs to be soon enuff.
I took the easier path using an 88 GS front end on my G/S. It works great for me but the benefits of this conversion cannot be denied. I'm still looking forward to riding a bike with this conversion so I can experience the difference for myself.
My path would have been super easy and straight forward had I stuck with just DRZ forks and the DRZ hub. The install is majorly easy and basically bolt-on...I just experimented with an RMZ setup first.
