    I need a replacement right hand front fork for the stealth drag bike

    I would prefer just a single complete working unit so its an easy swap out

    You'd be doing me a favour if you take both and whatever else you want from the frame .

    If they are in Sydney and you are not in a rush for them I can always bring them up next time I am in Tamworth... mine you not sure when that will be.. work has issued no travel instructions for all of us for the time being.. so sometime in the near-distant future :)

    Yea thanx Andy .... I was going to ask about that when I had something sorted .... a set of forks/triple trees are an awkward item and the USDs are not that light to ship

    @TonyZXR - @GreyImport has just pointed me at this, do you still have those forks and whereabouts in Sydney are you - thinking I might be able to remove just the lower from the chrome stanchion that Grey needs for him and send it on to return a favour

    That seller/wrecker is always way overpriced

    I think he just looks up the OEM price and then makes it a large percentage of that

    This is quite brilliantly done...


    Only difference is that for holding the fork lowers: a RWU fork triple clamp pair would hold the chrome stanchion to prevent it spinning if then put into a vice without fear of damage

    I know that for some of the conversions for rear shocks the clevis -v- eyelet on some ends causes issues with incompatibility, this has me thinking that there's the possibility of transferring an eyelet end to a clevis end - especially for lowers - as long as there aren't issues with the damping adjusters

    Food for thought

    If @kiffsta has any damaged ZXR front forks, where the lower mount is intact, then you (@GreyImport) could use this technique to remove the damaged mount and replace it. Seems like a lot of these USD ZXR forks end up breaking from the pinch bolts being done up too tight or from knocks/drops.
