Will the offset work for me?
Yeah, I had asked who might want to run the stock 650 headlight (guessing nobody) and who might want to run a CRF headlight (looks good, but it's still only a 35W headlight). I just need to know whether to add bosses to the lower tripleclamps for those mounts. I'm not familiar with your light setup, but if they mount to the stock fork tubes, they should mount to the CRF forks tubes just as easily. The spread is a little bit wider, but not enough that I imagine it would cause any fitment problems. With 26mm offset at the tripleclamps, the combined offset (between the tripleclamps and the axle) is still about 2.5mm tighter than the stock forks. I can't say how it will handle, or how it might work for you though, because I haven't even got to test a set myself yet.
