Thanks! I'm glad you like them.

I still need to get that picture. Things at the shop are busy!

Thank.

Get me a measurement on the fork tubes and I'll see about making them fit

Those are nice, but more than I was looking to spend. However, I haven't found any other options that will fit my forks (other than a cheap-looking Rigid clamp). So, if you make any with an ID of 57mm, hit me up.
thanks

It seems like there's interest for sizes below 60mm. One thing I had thought of was to turn adapter rings out of black plastic or aluminum to allow the 60mm brackets to fit smaller fork tubes.

Thoughts?

Will do this weekend as bike is stored out of town. I think its 57mm but need to check.
A plastic spacer would work for me.

My only concern with a spacer would be the strength of it. Then, as a secondary matter... it's kind-of a high-end piece (with an understandably high price). It would suck to have to rig it.

Yeah, I agree.

At this point, though, its hard to get the price down unless I can make a bunch at once ( like 10 sets ).

I don't have much contact in any riding circles other than guys with 950super motos so its tough to market to other groups.

I haven't bothered to post anywhere else to try and gather interest.

Beautiful craftsmanship. Will the fork guards miss them when the forks use up all of their travel?

Thanks! I measured that on my 07 950smr and on my bike the fork guards won't hit. I could even mount the brackets a bit lower and still not have a problem.

I would suspect that would go for the other ktms with 60mm wp forks but I can't guarantee it without personally taking some measurements.
