WP 50mm conventional adjusters??

I've done a good number of searches here, KTMTalk and via Google, to no avail. I'm hoping that somewhere in this vast pool of knowledge someone knows where I might find a pair of adjuster knobs or even a tool to adjust the Compression and Rebound on the White Power Extreme 50mm conventionals that reside on my '99 kTm 640A.

I'm getting them rebuilt this week and after looking at the parts schematic, now is the time to get them put in.

The big issue is clearance with the bars, I only have a 30" inseam. I've had the tube lowered in the triples about a half inch for 2.5 years now which has worked well, except I cant get anything in to adjust the settings. My plan for now is to get them adjusted where I like and then lower the bike back down. But I would rather be able to quickly readjust for paved vs dirt.

Thanks!

Before I lowered the front I used one of these

It requires about an inch of clearance, tho.

I did get a few responses, suggesting this paint can tool

It definitely would be an improvement, but I'm looking for a cleaner option
This was another suggestion


This will definitely help, but still hoping for a permanent mounted solution, but I will take what I can get!
