Ohlins Parts from a Cannondale s440x, for my 2000.

I have a 2000 WR400F. I am not sure the forks will fit my bike, but spec's are as follows:
FRONT SUSPENSION 46mm Kayaba inverted Telescopic fork, 11.8" of travel; Adjustable rebound/compression damping
REAR SUSPENSION Fully adjustable Kayaba single shock, 12.4" of travel
Front Suspension Ohlins 46mm USD, external compression and rebound damping adjustment, 12 inch travel
Rear Suspension Ohlins linkless position-sensitive damping single-shock, external compression and rebound damping adjustment, 12.6 inch travel
I can get both for about $1000. Will they fit? Any simple mods that will make them fit? Any info would be great.
Thanks in advance!

Ther rear you will need to check the center to center of the shock mount holes and overall lenght. I still would not do that though. The travel and fell of the suspension is determined by not only the stroke of the shock, but the linkage and swingarm moments. You would need to graft a whole swing arm and lingake with the shock if you expected it to work like the dale.
For the $$$ I would do like holeshot said and have yours worked and dialed in, or for a bit more $$$ buy a dale.

The Shock won't work at all on anything. Its linkless and much longer that a KTM, I know I looked into it.
Seems like you'd just need new triple clamps for the forks. On the ohlins page I could only find one fork, but that doesn't mean much (how acurate are web pages anyways)

It's a cool sounding idea, but only if you can afford a project of this type. I am in college and deliver pizza... another one of my grand illusions of having some super tricked out bike.
Wish they'd just slip in place of my forks. I can get just the forks for $700.. then sell my forks for like $200? THen I'd be super bling bling!!!
