hey Dave call Benny we have lots of talks about this. Always talking bout setting up race bikes. Flattrack and roadracing. He got good friends at the Duc shop in Atlanta. Some badass bikes there. Benny was also roadracing last year and he's doing some flattrack this year. Building a Duc 350 single for it.

probably the shortest forks out there, due to the steped top clamp.

I work for a big 4 dealer, I'll get you some from the new stuff on the floor if you're after super current forks.

Most of the current stuff of the last 5 years and back is around 29-30" axle to top clamp. Honda is the oddball though. They've used that stepped top clamp for about 10 years now, which makes the forks the shortest of the bunch.
