Sins i have put in a DRZ fork I'm not completely happy with the geometry.
Actually,.... before the DRZ fork I had a Showa KX250 USD fork with KTM triples, and that didn't work either.
Suspension is pretty much ok now, but when I ride a stock R65GS it handles SO MUCH BETTER from trail riding to "high speed" soft sand. (high speed with a R65GS )
Suspension sucks on the stock one but geometry is godlike in my opinion.

So I'm thinking about making custom triple clamps matching stock geometry.
But there is one thing 1 keep thinking about, my bike is higher than a stock one so what to do with the trial/ head angle to compensate it?
Anyone knows what BMW is doing with the G/S and GS models? Somehow I can't find specs :(
