    I reckon they look sweet, only problem is my forks were built up by maxton and I'd be scared of undoing their work....... advice would be welcome

    no problem redoing their good work mate...they will have given you an air gap or a oil quantity and viscosity when they built the forks up just count your setting before you take em apart and do them back up when rebuilding!!

    simples!!

    hope this helps dude...any worries or questions just gimme a bell and i'll talk you through it!!

    catchya soon !!

    AAAHHHHH Griff, c'mon

    Surely you can set up shop here, I was almost out of things to do until I saw this, now...................I can only follow suit

    How hard is it to take off the end part of the stanchion, the wheel end as mine are pretty cacked, would love to get them re-finished as well??

    Cheers
