2011 570 FS into a FE and man do I need help

So Iíve gone out and bought a 2011 570 FS with the full intention of picking up a used pair of forks and shock, then having them set-up and tuned by a professional thus ending up with what would basically amount to a 570 FE so I can go back and forth between the two styles. Of course Iím also shopping for wheels and a front brake (lever all the way to caliper).

However Iím a new off road rider having basically no experience and could use a little help getting started.

Iím under the impression that most KTM EXC and SX forks will work and if this is true what years specifically?

Iím also under the impression that a shock from any KTM EXC and SX after 2008 will work (due to the clevis style bottom attachment), sound correct?

Also, with regard to the rear wheel size, 18Ē or 19Ē?

Any additional concerns that you could/would share would be much appreciated as well.

We all have to start somewhere and while Iím starting off road late in life Iím excited to get started, Iíd certainly appreciate some help with this as Iím to damn old to run the entire learning curve from scratch LOL!

Probably right on the forks. I have heard the rear shock is more Husaberg specific (total length and valving). You want to go 18" on the rear.
