Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Fork Stanchion or fork or pair WHY?

Post by lawmand on Sun 31 Jul 2016, 6:23 pm

Hi
I stripped my forks the other day on my new pig and found one of the Stanchions bent. Does anyone have anything to help me out. I will pay a reasonable cost etc, Based in S. Yorks

To get a used pair of forks you're looking at about £100 give or take a tenner either way. 

You can get a replacement stanchion from wemoto for £120 that is the correct fitting, the one you can get from M&P is NOT the correct fitting. 

firefoxracing in Keighley can straighten forks for about £35ish I think

Thanks James
Yes, the stamchions are expensive. My bent one isnt kinked and has bent directly below the triple clamp lower, its out about a half inch end to end max so it may be worth a punt straightening it £35 ish seems atteractive right now, I'll ring them tomorrow, my lad lives near Pudsey so I could make a useful trip out of it.
Appreciated
Dave
