it really depends on how far off road you mean.. like if you want to jump it then youll need different forks with longer travel cos the duke forks have really short travel, but with just green laning just a good set of tyres would be surfice, like the avon distanzias
but if you want proper knobblies on it then youd need different wheels and brake setup too... all that said i used to take mine green laning on pirelli's and it was ok, just a few hairy moments i can recall haha
I'd start by turning it into cash and buying something better suited. The Duke's far too heavy but mainly the suspension's all wrong - would need too much work to make it worth bothering with imo. Get something like a 450EXC and you could also have fun turning it into a tasty supermoto - then with two sets of wheels you'll be able to enjoy the best of both worlds
