Distance between the upper and lower tripple clamp

A while ago, I tried to do a wheelie
Did not fully succeded and landed a bit hard

Fast foward today and I have the impression that something might be loose in the direction

So my question
Is the distance between the upper and lower tripple clamp the same for all the first gen versys (for instance) ?

Second, does somebody know what it is ??

Thank's guys

175 mm (6 7/8") from BOTTOM of the top clamp, to the TOP of the bottom clamp, measured on left fork of my '09.

CORRECTION...
...That is "measured on left fork of my '09" IF you're facing towards the REAR .

It was measured on the RIGHT fork leg, which I'm SURE matches, side-to-side...!
