You were concerned about whether or not you should have gone with the V-Strom Intiminator's or the Transalp ones... I have good news for you after doing a few hours of searching!
You chose correctly!
Reason? The bushing that makes the Ricor fit inside the fork tube snuggly, which is necessary to make the valves work properly, is dependent on the size of the INNER diameter of the fork tube. The best way to figure out how big that is? Look at the fork seal measurements!
Well guess what? The Transalp AND the NC700x actually have the same exact measurements for a fork seal (41x54x11) and thus, the Ricor fit as you said -- snuggly and correctly. You likely would not have been so lucky with the V-Strom's collar.
The only other part is the arrangement of the shim-stack which will adjust how quickly or slowly oil flows through them (I.E., softer or harder ride), but you can buy new shims from Ricor and adjust them as you wish on your own, so you're good there!
Anyhow, since I have been unable to source a replacement front end with a cartridge fork, or an aftermarket cartridge fork, I am going to give these Intiminators a shot as well. I will be buying proper weight linear springs (hate progressive spring rates) to go in at the same time, though!
