FYI - they're for Husqvarna-sourced SSS forks NOT Yamaha.

Rode for a couple of hours at Spot X on a recon mission this morning - the forks just get better - awesome mod.

Just was resetting sag after the bike started feeling a bit like a Harley when sitting on transport sections (40mm static, back to 32mm) & felt movement in the front wheel when I put the bike down off the stand - front wheel nut was really loose. Beta nut never came loose in nearly 2 years with just a good hand tighten.

Keep an eye on it, KYB groovers

The rest of the rig is rock solid - 10hrs, 250+kms & all good.

This is such a good upgrade, don't understand why manufacturers like Beta don't fit them as standard.

After a read of this thread I feel like I cheated,,,deposit money in Fitzys account, wait for postman, bolt em up and go ride !!

Well done you definitely had a bit of a mission there getting them sorted.

Yeah, Michael - love the fork. Fresh oil & backed off Comp to 12. Nice. Valving untouched, a bit stiff but I like the feel of it.

Although, see above - wheel nut fell off today on a ride & it was on pretty tight!
