The DRZ400 triple is nice and beefy, but the offset is ~15mm (guess) and I am unable to make tight turns. Thanks in advance ....

Just a thought that the DRZ bottom triple is a gull wing design. On the DRZ, the sliders come within about 10mm of the bottom clamp when bottomed out, so the bottom clamp would need to be a gull wing type unless the bottom clamp sits higher in comparison to the DRZ bottom clamp. ( I have DRZ forks on my DR 650 and have looked at them for my airhead) They are a good fork. I think they would work well but some careful measuring / calculating would be needed with a non gull wing clamp.
