Has anyone been able to install forkskins (or modifications) on a DL1000 with a fork brace?

No. It's one or the other. I went with the fork brace. The guards built into the front fender keep most road hazards off the fork tubes, so I haven't nicked them and cut a fork seal (yet).

I've seen fork boots used with a brace. The boots were not attached to the top of the fork legs in any way, but gravity and the elasticity of the boots kept them in place just fine.

I had to double check my spelling after reading your posts! I think that I will try fork boots. It seems that they could be anchored to the fork brace with zip ties.

I'll try making fork boots with material out of an old pair of neoprene waders and velcro. Another winter project.

Noj sell neoprene wraps, you'll need to take a little off the top and run some male vecro under the brace and up each side of the neoprene. Been doing that with my 650's for over five years.
