I got the tubes from Forks by Frank in Chicago http://www.frankmain.qpg.com/ They were about $375 for the pair. The tubes are much beefier than the OEM ones the stock spring barely fit inside. Lead time was about 2 weeks. The guts consist of Sonic 1.1kg springs, racetech emulators and 20wt oil. The best part about the taller forks is that you don't have to cut down the stock preload spaces since he emulator is also 1" tall.

I've mounted the dirt bike fender to a Murph's fork brace. After having it in hand I think it's the best design over the other 2 available. The Murphs is the only one that can be adjusted for variances in the distance between the fork legs.
