That Ducati idea is pretty cool, but maybe beyond the scope of my project and skills. So I did some horse trading and just picked up the front and rear off a 2004 ex250 ninja, and I think they will be great swaps instead of what I had in the sv gear. The front end is similar in fork length, and I will be finding/lacing a slim profile 17" rim to klr hubs to run a 110 front tire. The rear swingarm is 3" longer than the KEs, but will fit the pivot with very little massaging. I also think adding tabs to run dual shocks is a wise/ great looking idea to keep it in the vintage vein. The chain lines will match up easily too. I will find a stock 17" klr wheel to swap out the ninja rear and run a 130. I'll have to get a new sprocket for the 428 chain or is it possible to drill out the KE sprocket to match the ninja bolt pattern? Overall, I can't thank you all enough for giving me sound direction for my project.
