When you do the RM100 conversion the longer forks really stretch out the front end. The bike has a long rake to begin with. I have two DRZs and switching between the RM100 bike and the stock suspended bike shows a huge difference in turning. The RM100 conversion is still a great setup but the bike needs to be kinda forced through inside lines and especially an inside rut. Great stability though. You can't really lower the forks in the clamps because the front tire hits the fender easily. From eyeballing it the RM100 tripple clamps do not rake out the forks anymore than the stock clamps (with stock forks), so its the angle of the steering tube thats at issue. I think I might have a solution..... I bought a 17" kx85 front wheel on Ebay. This will lower my front 2" AND allow me to drop the forks in the tripple clamps. Some new full size MXers come with an option for a 20" front wheel, mated with a 19" rear puts it just 1" difference front to back. So my 16" rear & 17" front isn't so odd?? Right? I'll post the results when I get the wheel and test them back to back.
