I know. Modded Kayaba forks from the XR650R, modded head tube (and other parts) so the overall dimensions (and ride) ie. axle-axle, handle bar to pegs, rake / trail, etc, are similar to any other modern hard-adventure/ dual-sport dirt bike. The only way the front wheel can hit the front cylinder is by completely destroying the front forks, or by removing the front wheel, and then smacking it against the engine.
