I will have to wait until I get our DR home so I can measure. ( picking it up tomorrow )
This mod brought it to this:

Fully compressed the tire (90/90-21) hits the fender and there is just enough space for the dust seal.
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 .
