Also curious on the specs you used for your transfer tube. OD, ID, length.

I have the high fender on my 06 950 but I'm just running a single front disc at present (I run a front knobbie, I'd feel differently if I ran a front Scorpion). Even if I stick with one disc, I like the transfer tube idea as I hate the stupid loop of hose in the cockpit plus it makes it easy to switch between dual and single discs. KTM did a really nice job decluttering this area for the 990, 950 dash area sucks.
Nobody has come back with any lengths yet. I have a 06 950s so I guess I am just going to have to wing it and bend a piece of wire and see how it looks the measure. Glad I found this thread cause I had initially thought of running the lines straight up the fork tubes and allowing for full extension. I thought that is what Pyndon did initially. Then I read someone stating it would kink so I went back and looked over his thread and it shows he has them looped and not straight. That would of been a costly mistake on my part.

As far as the tube goes I picked up a one meter length of stainless pipe they use to make gun barrels with here in Thailand for 15 bucks. I was lucky that this was the right ID for a M10x1.0 Tap!

Cut a piece off 20cm long. Took it to a local machine shop and had them mill the ends flat for 75 cents. That is about as far as I got with it. I need to drill and cut the flat stock for the tabs and have them welded to the tube and weld 2 pieces of Tig Wire to keep the banjo bolts from rolling like in Pyndon's picture.
