Here's a photograph of an XR650L with the suspension bottomed out.

However, the rider, forum member Memnok, has USD forks on his XR650L.

I'm starting to think Red is correct; my oil cooler might not get hit by the tire when the stock forks are fully compressed. I really like the present location of my oil cooler. If necessary, I am willing to limit fork travel.

USD forks bottom out when the outer fork tube contacts the base of the inner fork tube near the front wheel. Do conventional forks bottom out when the outer fork tube contacts the lower triple tree?
