I am gonna go for it. I found an 03 fork on thumper talk, I am getting fork, triple clamps, and brake caliper for $250. What weight oil did you use and what springs did you use? Thanks for all the info. I will post some pics when I get going on it.
Also where did you get your black storage canister? Or did you make it? Obviously I really like your bike, I had to sell my dirt bike this year and now I miss it, the dakar is not that dirt worthy so far, but yours looks the most offroad ready of any that I have seen. Maybe I won't need to get another dirt bike after all.
