Well I found a crack in my lower fork ear yesterday while preping my bike the the Sumter Enduro in two weeks. I talked to my welder at work and he said welding it up would weaken the surrounding area of cast aluminum and may make it to brittle to be used under the high stress of taking all those hard hits. So my solution is to just throw the front end from my Vertemati on it with the 48mm works WP forks and billet triple clamps. I'm just going to swap the steering stems and bolt the new stuff back up. Not that big of a deal all I have to do is turn up a few shims. Here is where I am at now. Mock up Stock on right. Vertemati on left Vertemati steering shaft hole KTM hole Sorry some of the photos are blurry. I'll upload more as the project progresses. Thanks!
