I have an offer for a fork from a KTM EXC-F 350 2011/12.

The brake and the steering-head and the lower clamp of the G450X should fit.
What did you change? Do you have fotos? I think I have to change the shell/bush on the brake side.
It's possible to use BMW wheels on WP forks, you'll need to fabricate a different wheel spacer to both center wheel and orient the rotor correctly, you'll also have to make wheel axle shims to use stock axle on WP forks, but you're going to have to use XTrig triple clamps for WP forks, otherwise any other triple clamp will not have correct center to center measurement for the forks. I would re-tune your stock forks rather then trying to invent a short cut, I've run all options and not sure I would do a WP based conversion again knowing what can be done with stock forks tuning-wise. I already had spare WP forks so buying an XTrig triple clamp at dealer costs made sense at the time along with already having two spare ktm wheel sets
