DL650/DL1000 fork swap
I have a '07 DL650 and have just bought a secondhand pair of '08DL1000 forks with intention of fitting them to the 650. Has anyone here ever tried it and what was the result?
The plan is to use the 650 fork bottoms (to match the 650 wheel caliper guard etc) and probably the 650 springs, with suitable spacers. Everything else should fit.
If anyone has tried this, or has any thoughts, I'd be pleased to hear them, particularly regarding re shimming the compression and rebound valves. I did find a guy on another forum who has done this, but apart from him reporting a positive result 2 years ago, hasn't provided any more info
Cheers and thanks
