Heavily modded DL1000 questions

Hi All,

Does anyone have links to any USD fork conversions? How about alternative front fairings? I'm anticipating a DL1000 in my future (maybe a 650 who knows) and I have a bit of a disorder for tinkering. I've only owned one bike (My DRZ) that I haven't changed anything on, and only because it was purchased fully tricked out : )

I'm searching around, and have seen GlitchOZ's stuff. Anyone take the DL and make it more street oriented instead of going the dirt direction?

I'd send my forks to Suspensions by Sasquatch or at least have Jay create a shim stack based on my weight and riding style.
There are threads about Race-Tech valves et al but I don't know enough about suspension mods and testing them to put the time required into the task.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Yeah I'm strongly considering Sasquach for the rear shock. I'll be riding my V on pavement only really. I wonder if someone has a KTM990SM front end lying around anywhere...
