KTM front suspension
« on: October 12, 2017, 03:02:27 pm »
Has anyone fitted a KTM 690 front fuspension to a DR ?
I am 75 kg and although I find the standard setup ok I am riding more technical stuff and thought I might benefit from a better setup.

Any advice / comments welcome.

DRZ 400, or RM front suspension might be a more practical solution.
DT 125, GSX 750 ES, XJ 900, KX 125, YZ 250, WR 200, RMX 250 (280 kit), FZ-6, 2006, DT 125 LC (rear ended by Fortuner - written off), DT200R (current), KTM 625 SXC (current)

For reference, it’s a fork (front) or shock (rear)  :thumleft:

I might be selling my DR 650 SE soon.

Have a complete DRZ 400 front end, that I was planning to fit.

Yes, with the wheel, brake caliper, same as the DR, and longer speedo cable.

Forks have 50mm more travel than the DR. Should be 280mm.

I bought a brand new 320mm brake rotor for it, and had an aluminum adapter milled. The DR has a 280mm rotor diameter and the DRZ 250mm.

I also have a Sachs rear shock that can be made to fit the DR. It has been serviced by Superfoxi. The spring has been replaced with one that suits my weight. 100kg.

I also have a DRZ rear shock, which is also a favorite mod on the DR. Refer to AdvRider etc.

All these are in very good condition, and won't go cheap.

Note: The DRZ front fork springs are slightly stiffer than the DR's and have multiple damping and rebound setting. One of the easiest and best options for the DR.
