Looks like you'll have a fun time getting it sorted. Do you normally ride this time of year, or wait until warmer times?

on allegro.pl (it is polish ebay) I bought front forks with wheel and brake, from KTM EXC 520 - WP43







I measured everything,



I have to produce my own special tool (dopra-tool) for front EXC forks



I installed front fork from KTM EXC 520 to my DR 650 SE bike , it is easy.

Picked up your build thread from the BIG DR650 thread.
Nice job on the rebuild. Man ... your DR has seen some HARD use. Hope you can get it all sorted. The KTM forks are nice ... but aren't they TOO long for the DR650?

Good luck with everything!
