Fork Refurb
« on: 16.01. 2014 20:41 »
Hello all.

I'm about to undertake a fork refurbishment on my 59 A7.

Can anyone recommend parts suppliers in the UK?

Would “hard chroming” be an option?

I know I need at least a couple of service tools, the oil seal holder tool (61-3005) and a stanchion service tool (61-3350).  Would I need any other?

Thanks.

Hi Alan and All
Hard chrome stanchions are great but seem to be scarce at the moment *????*
On a one off basis its not worth getting old stanchions re chromed (hard) it would cost several times the price of new

I too recommend hard chrome stanchions. The last set I got from UK cost $190 landed. To get a set re-hard chromed here is $300 + post.

I'd recommend Paul Goff....

Especially the damper rod kit and progressive springs....though I see he is out of stock of hard chromed stanchions too!
