Running a "flat" bottom triple tree is still not a option unless you want much clearance between tire and fender fully compressed. If you want to use full stroke (285mm i guess i measured) your front will be high (something i do not want) I shortened it anyway I'm using my stock swing arm at the back and i still use my stock center stand .
I was thinking of this setup with a long travel rear and sliding the forks down in the clamps by approx 20mm to use a flat bottom clamp. On page 1 a pic shows a spacer under the top clamp to pack it up as the BMW steering tube is shorter than the DRZ one. Without this spacer, the forks tubes could be slid down. I hope that makes sense !
