According to this site: http://www.esuperbike.com/new_vehicl...anufacturer=40

The 2001 used the 45mm Marzocchi inverted hydraulic fork with adjustable compression and rebound damping, 12.6 in travel.

Looking earlier in this thread:
From what I can find online http://slorider.com/Aprilia/manuals/Specifications.pdf the travel of the RXV Marzzocchi Shiver forks I used was 298.5 mm (11.75 in).

The stock BMW's are 230mm or 9 inches. I gave this info to the guy who revalved my forks and he was able to make a spacer to shorten them to the stock length and travel.

I believe it was a 40mm spacer spring + a 10mm solid spacer (~2"). So the 11.75 was reduced to close to stock.



So to answer your question, yes you should be able to do it by using a spacer to shorten the travel from BIG TIME offroad travel to dualsport range of the BMW.
