The suspension and wheels is the main difference between the two and the suspension is not great anyway. I'd suggest getting RXV forks and putting them on your 650. Does the 650 has a single front disk? If so, you are golden. Triple trees from an 800 may be needed.

Then call Woody and have him send you spoked wheels of your liking. A little more narrow than the 800 and 18" rear seems prudent to me. That would be an excellent ride.

I want to convert my F650GS twin to a 800. I read most of the posts on this subject but still not sure what to buy ... I'd buy the stock 800 forks if any of you swaped them .

If not, what should I buy and how will the bottom of fork fit with my abs? Is there a way to fit the abs sensor to any forks?

thx
